Thinking about a San Diego beercation? Here for a conference and want to explore the famous San Diego craft beer scene? Here’s a beer tour of downtown’s East Village neighborhood, a hot spot where you’ll find 8 (soon ten) breweries and tasting rooms in 1.4 mile walk.
There is an excellent grouping of eight craft breweries and satellite tasting rooms in Ocean Beach. Come for the #beach, stay for the #beer. #craftbeer #beertour #beercation #sdbeer #sandiegocraftbeer #sandiego #localbeer #indiebeer
Two Roots Brewing has a nifty tasting room in Ocean Beach. Their beers are good and the setting is very nice. Relax in the large window open to the street, or at the long bar.
I did not drink beer at Hodad’s original location in Ocean Beach. I recommend you don’t, too.
Plan 9 Alehouse in Escondido is a nice spot for lunch and a beer. They have a quality guest craft beer list in addition to offering several made on site. The science fiction these is subtle but a nice touch.
Babgy Beer Co. is right up there with one of the best craft beer experiences you can have. Check out their gorgeous Oceanside restaurant, especially the patios (plural), and sample some world-class beer. #localbeer #sdbeer #oceanside #independentbeer #beercation
Review #220: Carlsbad Brewing Co.: Another great brewery in the Bressi Ranch neighborhood of Carlsbad. #sdbeer #craftbeer #sandiegobeer #beertour #beertography
The Mike Hess tasting room in Imperial Beach is right across the street from the Coronado Brewing pub, and it is home to an outpost of City Tacos. The beach and pier are steps away. It is an idyllic setting for summery days. #sdbeer #craftbeer

If you want some beach with your beer, it is hard to beat the four tasting rooms in Encinitas, CA. #craftbeer #beercation #beertravel #beertour
Knotty Barrel, a beer bar and tasting room for its Knotty Brewing brand, has a wonderful space. The tap list is extensive and excellent, though too light on their own beers. #sdbeer #sandiegobeer #localbeer #independentbeer
With a large and elegant dining room, long bar, perfect roof top patio, food and beer, Kairoa seems likely to be a huge hit.
Monthly SD brewery update: February saw no changes, but March has NINE additions and deletions to the list of breweries and tasting rooms. There are now 198 SD craft locations and 6 SD non-craft. From the available info, I predict an additional 29 locations by the end of 2019.
Tiger!Tiger! is a popular #craftbeer bar in North Park, San Diego’s best craft beer neighborhood. It is also a tasting room for Automatic Brewing. #sdbeer #northpark
Gravity Heights is the newest—and overall probably the best—of the seven craft beer locations in #SorrentoValley.
There are seven very good craft breweries in Sorrento Valley. It deserves to be better known as a beer destination. #sdbeer #beertour #pubcrawl #craftbeer #SanDiego #beercation
