Whether it’s a meet-the-brewer night or just a Tuesday eve, there’s never a wrong time to visit “The Hoppiest Place on Earth.” 4646 Convoy Street

The country’s best small brewery in 2009 has been churning out spot-on renditions of beer styles spanning the globe since the mid-‘90s.

New English Brewing Company

New English Brewing Company

One of San Diego’s hidden gems, this Sorrento Valley suite is ground zero for proper pints of extra-special bitters (ESB) and English-style IPAs like the ones owner, brewer, and born-and-bred Brit Simon Lacey grew up on across the pond. Stop in and step back to traditional Old World flavors. 11545 Sorrento Valley Road

 
Green Flash Brewing Company

Green Flash Brewing Company

Being the darling of Mesas both Mira and Sorrento has provided the company the capital and courage to break ground on a site in Virginia Beach, where it will build a second brewhouse. For now, they’re all ours and worth celebrating for
trademark hoppy beers that’ll sing the West Coast’s praises from the other coast. 6550 Mira Mesa Boulevard

 
Societe Brewing Company

Societe Brewing Company

People expected big things from the Russian River/The Bruery expats behind Kearny Mesa’s first brewery, and that’s exactly what they’ve delivered. Touted by many as the best new brewing company to open in the past year, its IPAs burst with varied hop flavors and its Belgian brews go beyond ubiquitous styles. 8262 Clairemont Mesa Boulevard
