In November, Margie and I were able to enjoy our first San Diego Beer Week. For the record, we thought we were beer snobs back on the east coast but now it’s out of control. In the past, we would check the beer makers’ schedules to see when New Belgium would launch their latest creation in our area, but now we’re on the lookout for the latest local double IPA or habanero-infused version of one of our new local favorites.
The craft beer culture is a great phenomenon for the city of San Diego and this area of the country and we were glad we could take part by visiting Monkey Paw, Mission Brewery, Karl Strauss, Stone Brewing Company and Green Flash in celebration of this hoppy goodness. Hopefully next year we’ll make it time for Karl Strauss’s Peanut Butter Cup Porter.
