Tasting notes, fast facts, and expert reviews on every brewery in the San Diego region
By Bruce Glassman
Through the years, a number of excellent brewers have cycled through Oggi’s, at various locations. Unlike many of its counterparts, this franchise has historically been fairly serious about providing good quality beer alongside its pizza-centric, family-friendly menu. Today, only a few Oggi’s remain in San Diego and they are now owned by separate owners.
The large, comfortable space in Carmel Mountain can host parties of any kind. There are booths and big tables for families, bar tables for couples, and plenty of space at the bar if you’re on your own. Flat-screen TVs surround you, all tuned to one sports channel or another.
The beer lineup at this Oggi’s is brewed by two separate entities. On site, brewer Eric Loper does a rotation of three beers, which can include Belgian styles and wheat beers. The rest of the beer is contract-brewed by the well-respected Left Coast Brewing in San Clemente.

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!
