Love beer? Then this is the only San Diego travel guide you need! We give you the 411 on the county's best micro-breweries.




Jul 19, 2014






About the Guidebook

Named as one of America’s best beer towns by Men’s Journal, San Diego boasts 78 craft breweries with nearly two dozen more expected by the time the ball drops on 2015. In fact, there is so much good beer flowing through San Diego neighborhoods that you could literally spend your entire vacation bouncing from one tasting to the next. 

Local Knowledge & Cool Perks

We love beer. We love San Diego. And it's these two simple facts that have led us to publish this guide. For years, we've recommended many of these places to family, friends and visiting beer lovers. Now for the first time ever, we've put all of our favorites into a portable guide, which can be carried easily with you on your smartphone or tablet.

With so many great microbreweries in San Diego County, it's hard to narrow down the selection to just 15. But these breweries have proven their merits time and time again, capturing the praise of locals, beer enthusiasts and critics for their variety and commitment to quality. Better yet, they all embody the laid back and relaxed style of San Diego and create an atmosphere that's not only fun, but also informational for those who want to find out more about what they're drinking.

So whether you're a beer aficionado or just looking for a fun afternoon, this guide will give you all the information you need to delve into San Diego's burgeoning craft beer scene.
