Tasting notes, fast facts, and expert reviews on every brewery in the San Diego region
By Bruce Glassman
Like its neighbors Vista and San Marcos, the city of Oceanside has seen notable growth in its brewery community over the past few years. Legacy, which opened its doors in October 2013, is one of the area’s newer breweries.
Inside, the large, open space is dominated by a long bar and numerous big picnic-style tables that offer plenty of seating. The décor is an interesting mix of patriotic-biker-military, with flags and old-style Americana adorning the bar and walls.
Brewer Mark Mericle offers a good variety of styles and flavors, with most beers showing good, clean flavors and pleasing drinkability. For the adventurous visitor, some of the more creative beers, such as That Guava Beer, are an interesting departure from the norm.

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!
