High quality, craft beers are everywhere in San Diego! It is nearly impossible to come visit San Diego and try every craft beer that is made in the city. Boasting 87 breweries with 31 in development, there is a beer that will fit everyone’s taste. San Diego is most famous for creating several different styles of beer, most notably the “Double IPA.” The Beer World Cup has called San Diego its home twice (2004 and 2008) as San Diego has one of the more dominating presences in the craft beer market. Some of the more established and high quality breweries to look out for are The San Diego Brewing Co., Karl Strauss Brewing Company, Ballast Point Brewing Company, and AleSmith Brewing Company. The Annual San Diego Beer Festival is in early November and is one of the best events in the world, especially for those with a weak spot for craft beer!
