Nickel Beer Company- Julian

Nickel Beer Company was a welcomed respite from the heat of the desert.  I had just come up Banner Grade and Route 78 from the Salton Sea through Ocotillo Wells and Anza-Borrego, and I was hot, sun burned, and my mouth was dry.  It was cool in Julian, and a niceRead More …


Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery- La Jolla

Rock Bottom is one of three craft breweries in La Jolla. Located just west of I-5, Rock Bottom is perched above the intersection of La Jolla Village Drive and Villa La Jolla. UCSD is right across the street. It’s a nice restaurant and the brewery itself is in full view ofRead More …


La Jolla Brewing Company- La Jolla

I was in La Jolla yesterday to check out the breweries and La Jolla Brewing was first on my list. Located on Fay Avenue just north of Pearl, this brewery lives up to its goal of being a local neighborhood bar, restaurant, and “really cool joint.” They have an interestingRead More …


Green Flash Brewing Company- San Diego (Mira Mesa)

Visiting Green Flash Brewing was like walking into a cavernous Disneyland ride for me. Interesting sights of lights, colorful signage, towers of shiny stainless steel, and people riding machines carrying cases of beer to waiting trucks. Big cool sounds of compressed air blasts from bottling and packaging machinery, forklift motors, and beautiful background music filled theRead More …

Oceanside Ale Works- Oceanside

Coming home to San Diego from a L.A. beer trip last Saturday I was tired of traffic and thirsty. Knowing that Oceanside Ale Works was on my list to visit, I got off the I-5 in Oceanside figuring it would be close. Little did I know it was 9 miles east on busy Oceanside Boulevard!Read More …


Callahan’s Pub & Brewery- San Diego (Mira Mesa)

Located on Mira Mesa Boulevard in the heart of the community of Mira Mesa, Callahan’s Pub & Brewery is a lot like its sister brewery, San Diego Brewing Company, except for the Irish Pub theme. On Yelp someone posted: “Callahan’s is the family bar of Mira Mesa. It’s a funRead More …


Dos Desperados Brewery- San Marcos

One of the busiest breweries to open on the Hops Highway (aka, California State Route 78) a year ago this month is Dos Desperados in San Marcos. Located just south of Grand Plaza Mall, the brewery is owned and operated by locals Steve and Dora Munson. Long-time homebrewer Steve Munson saw anRead More …


South Park Brewing Company- San Diego (South Park)

Another new San Diego brewpub opened soft last weekend in the neighborhood of South Park. Craft beer and food visionary Scot Blair proudly opened the doors last Friday night to his newest creation, South Park Brewing Company. This seafood restaurant and craft brewery fusion is right next door to one of his otherRead More …

It took a rainy day to keep me off the freeways and revisit my favorite Coronado places for tasting craft beer. Every one of these places is great for spending a little time, or even hours, tasting craft beers with friends, watching the world go by, or just reading by yourself. These Coronado favorites areRead More …
