Tasting notes, fast facts, and expert reviews on every brewery in the San Diego region
By Bruce Glassman
Vista is quickly becoming one of San Diego’s most densely populated brewery areas. One of the most recent new kids in the neighborhood is Ebullition, which offers a nicely designed tasting space and plenty of room in which to enjoy.
The long, deep tasting room has a good-sized bar and plenty of options for table seating or standing at a beer ledge. Open to the brew house and fermentation tanks, the space has a casual and informal feel.
The brewery’s initial lineup is small but admirably varied, with eight beers on tap that range from IPA to saison to stout and even a gruit. The saison and the hazy IPA stood out as particularly well-balanced and flavorful.
San Diego is all about great beer—and there’s an awful lot of it! We currently have more than 150 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!
