Tasting notes, fast facts, and expert reviews on every brewery in the San Diego region
By Bruce Glassman
This nano was a member of San Diego’s 2014 freshman class, and they are just one of a few new establishments that are helping to make the Clairemont / Kearny area one of the county’s most exciting brewing hubs.
High ceilings and plenty of light make this industrial space seem somewhat cozy. A nice, large bar dominates, with other good seating options that include big wooden tables, and a bar shelf along the wall.
Brewer Liz Chism has undertaken an ambitious lineup of styles and flavors that show promise and offer a generous number of choices to visitors. The board often includes a few Belgian styles, a dark beer or two, an English style pale, and numerous riffs on IPA. Though the style choices are many, the Beatitude tart Saisons stand out as light, crisp, and refreshing—easily the most interesting and flavorful of their kind in San Diego.
San Diego is all about great beer—and there’s an awful lot of it! We currently have more than 120 working brewery locations in our county, with an estimated 30-40 more in the planning stages. That’s a lot of breweries to sort through. So where to begin? Well, the answer is right here. If you want to plan any kind of brewery experience, The San Diego Brewery Guide is your most essential tool. Not only does it list the location and key information about every working brew house that’s open to the public, it also allows you to search for breweries that meet your specific criteria. Do you only want breweries in a specific neighborhood? No problem. Only want places that have patios for dogs? You got it. Do you want to keep your search limited to small or medium-sized breweries? Yup, we got that.
With so many breweries to choose from, we hope you’ll keep coming back to consult The San Diego Brewery Guide on a regular basis. Our ultimate goal is to make it easy for you to plan the perfect day or weekend of brewery tours and tastings in San Diego—and to do it time and time again. If you haven’t already, you’ll see that there’s nothing better than enjoying a great brewery-fresh beer right where it’s made.
So get out there and explore! Sip. Savor. Socialize. And get ready to be awed by some of the best brews to be found anywhere on the planet. Enjoy!
