2014 World Beer Cup and Great American Beer Festival Winners: A San Diego Sub-Quest

After learning that 15 craft breweries in San Diego County had won medals or awards at the World Beer Cup or Great American Beer Festival last year, I started a sub-quest (to my main quest) to visit each of them in order to taste the winners.

The purpose of this sub-quest is to enjoy and taste world class craft beer winners locally as a way to calibrate my palate and educate myself on beer styles.

As a craft beer reviewer and consumer I have a keen interest in juried beers. I’ll post the status of my sub-quest progress on this page as I visit each one.
