Anyone that’s familiar with the craft beer scene knows that San Diego is one of the best places in the country to go for a beercation. The official number of breweries constantly fluctuates, but there are approximately more than 150 operational breweries in San Diego County. That number doesn’t count the numerous satellite taprooms that many breweries have around town.
One thing that’s great about the San Diego area is that with the seemingly endless amount of breweries there isn’t a bad place to start your brewery tours, regardless of where you’re staying. Many breweries you probably already know, such as Modern Times, Coronado, Karl Strauss, Stone Brewing, Pizza Port and, well, there are so many it’s hard to name them all. San Diego offers several, diverse beer experiences. For instance, North Park has smaller, cozier taprooms and Miramar has larger (and sometimes massive) production breweries. So, here is a quick guide to just a small number of the area’s numerous breweries — some you know, some that may be new to you. We hope it helps you when you visit San Diego.
Welcome to this special double-edition of The Weekly Buzz. I had a work obligation that stopped me from posting last week, but fear not! I did manage to collect all the content, which is good because there was a LOT going on. Anyway… Here’s the best beer-related Twitter and Instagram content from the last two weeks. It’s time to start sipping on this special barrel-aged bottle of The Weekly Buzz!
Have you ever had one of those weeks where you’re completely and totally scatterbrained? I am having one right now. I can’t believe I even managed to pull together this modest collection of social media nonsense. It just goes to show that you can complete any task if you procrastinate until the last possible second and then scroll through Twitter at a frantic pace. So, in honor of my half-assery – which may or may not be a word – let’s raise a glass and dive into The Weekly Buzz.
There were lots of event announcements this week! In fact, there were so many that I am positive I missed some. Don’t fret, dear reader. Unless you’re some kind of maniac, there are enough events here to last you a few months. If you ARE some kind of maniac, I definitely want to party with you! The rest of you should sip a beer and gently prepare your liver for this edition of The Weekly Buzz.
It’s been another grueling week, but there is light at the end of the tunnel. That light, of course, is the glowing neon of your local watering hole. Just as your favorite bartender is ready to listen to your woes, The Weekly Buzz is hear to brighten your day. So, kick that weird guy off of your favorite stool, belly up to the bar, and enjoy this week’s latest craft beer buzz. Oh… and don’t forget to drink a delicious beer. That’s an important part of the process.
Am I the only one who hasn’t started Christmas shopping yet? Usually, I’m done by now. I have a feeling that my Amazon Prime subscription is going to get a serious workout this year. If you’re in the same boat as me, you’ll need a break from the rigors of online shopping. Grab a fine craft beer, open a new tab in your web browser and dive into this week’s edition of The Weekly Buzz.
First and foremost, this week’s edition of The Weekly Buzz contains a big “Thank You” to all the veterans who have served this country. No matter what political affiliation you may hold, these people deserve our respect. Remember: It’s fine to disagree with your country’s motives for war or military action, but we, as citizens, must always continue to support the brave women and men who put their lives on the line to keep us safe. Thank you to all the veteran’s who have served.
Now that the serious stuff is out of the way, grab yourself a beer. It’s time to get buzzed.
It’s no surprise that one of my favorite local breweries is none other than Peticolas Brewing Co. They continue to push the envelope with their superior brews, consistently delivering year after year. One of the most anticipated collaborations in the DFW craft brew scene – Operation Collaboration IPA – is a joint effort between Peticolas and Chuck Silva of Green Flash Brewing Co., and includes two experimental hop varieties simply known as 07270 and 06277 for now.
Salad dressing and beer: two things that I love. One thing I hate… is salad. Now you may ask, how could you like salad dressing but you don’t like salad? Because I’m smart and because eating leaves is just gross. Like I claim in my bio, I’m just like Leslie Knope and we both ‘hate salad and other disgusting things.’ Seriously though, who was the first person to look down at the ground and decide that they wanted to nom on some grass? It’s not good and I refuse to give in to this veggie loving society. Instead, I will dip my pizza, fries and mozzarella sticks in ranch. I will marinate all my meat in Italian dressing and I will coat every patty melt in 1000 island. That’s just how I roll.
