The basics

San Diego Country offers more than 200 different craft breweries and tasting rooms, and although you’ll be hard-pressed to visit all of them on a single trip, you can certainly get a taste for a few. One of the best-known breweries is Ballast Point. Started by two college buddies in the 1990s, it has gone on to nationwide success, winning several gold medals for their concoctions.

Whether you visit the brewery in Miramar, the tasting room in Little Italy, or at Home Brew Mart, you’ll be able to taste a selection of different beers. To learn more about the craft beer scene in San Diego sign up for a guided brewery tour of the city that stops at multiple locations.
