It’s no secret that San Diego has become the craft beer capitol of the world over the last ten years. The city boasts over 140 breweries and visiting a brewery (or breweries) over the weekend has been a common activity for San Diego residents.
Almost every local grocery store and liquor store has huge selections of San Diego craft beers. It’s like Napa for beer!
