“San Diego’s meteoric rise as a craft beer capital has added an exciting element to the community, with more than 150 breweries, plus brew pubs and tasting rooms scattered across the county. Local pioneers like Karl Strauss Brewing, Stone Brewing Co., Ballast Point, Coronado Brewing, AleSmith and Pizza Port lead the charge, anchoring a beer scene with everything from backyard and nano-breweries to world-renowned mega craft brewing companies regularly serving up gold medal brews. Navigating San Diego’s dynamic craft beer breweries and tasting haunts is an ideal way to explore the city’s diverse neighborhoods and get a taste of local craft beer culture.”

The jump off point of the 48-hour fun journey is at Ale Smith.
“Kick off your journey at one of the few San Diegan breweries open at 11AM – which also happens to still offer, in its 22nd year, some of the best beer in town. Like a giant, yet cozy coffee house with 30-foot ceilings, AleSmith’s new tasting room provides a ‘super chill’ atmosphere (look, I’m West Coast!) in which one can sip upon their incredibly true-to-style brews. While they do make an excellent IPA, much of the beer is European-influenced and not necessarily representative of the local scene. Start with their malty Nut Brown Ale and hearty Hammerhead Speedway Stout because, hey, breakfast is the most important meal of the day.” Most Recommended Spots to Propose Marriage in San Diego
