The Cravory has two flavors: an Irish Car Bomb cookie made with Guinness Stout dough, Bailey’s caramel, chocolate, brownie batter, and oats. At Ballast Point's tasting room, get their Victory at Sea cookie. 3960 West Point Loma Boulevard, Point Loma

Yummy Cupcakes makes a Guinness cupcake, comprised of a beer-infused batter and whipped topping. Have a favorite brew in mind? Bring in your own bottle and let the bakers customize a batch. 1514 Encinitas Boulevard, Encinitas

A classic dessert gets a boozy update at San Diego Brewing Co., where its chocolate fudge brownie is baked with Nut Brown Ale and topped with vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup.
