Encinitas Ale House is the real deal—a consistently amazing and ever-changing tap and bottle selection, and servers who know their beer. #SDMBeer —@PetCobra

Plan 9 Alehouse. Their pork belly BLT is great and their nut brown ale is the best I’ve had. —@BallTerrence

Phileas Foggs: Great food, great beer, great staff, very clean, killer specials like 50-cent wings and $4 drafts. #SDMBeer —@TuyeYAYA

Bruski Burgers and Beer is my favorite place to grab a beer and food in San Diego. Their burgers beat out any burger joint. The pastrami burger is to die for. —Kyle Rayder via email

O'Brien’s Pub is one of SD’s oldest specialty beer bars. The owner, Tom Nickel, gets a lot of rare, one-off kegs. The prices are still really good—$4.50 for some pints. Some customers have been going there practically daily for close to 25 years. —Peter Hawkins via email

Has to be Blind Lady Ale. Why? Because @LeeChase of @AutomaticBrewCo will sit and talk beer with everyone! #SDBeer —@bernasconi

Hamilton's Tavern’s easily my fave bar to enjoy craft brews. Choices galore, tons of events, 2nd Saturday. What’s not to love? —@MatyRice

Oh my fave beer bar is, hands down, Queens Of Beer in #Hillcrest—the world’s first out & proud #LGBT brewery. The pizza = epic. —@AHizz

Tiger! Tiger! is my absolute fave beer bar! The beer selection is always exceptional +food/staff put it over the top! —@jennjjones

Raglan Public House. Great beer selection. Knowledgable servers. Beach vibe. Oh, & good food too! #SDMBeer —@MartinEglitis

Hands down fave beer bar is MonkeyPaw. Fabulous rotating taps, great bottle selection, super knowledgeable staff & great grub! —@JenQFE
