San Diego Beer Week Is Next Week Here's How We're Celebrating
The 14th-Annual San Diego Beer Week, presented by the San Diego Brewers Guild, begins on Friday, November 4th and we're excited to support the annual celebration saluting the Capital of Craft!
Best Beer Gardens in Munich
Christianity has Bethlehem. Judaism has Jerusalem. Islam has Mecca…and beer-lovers have Munich. The capital of Bavaria is not only home to some of the oldest breweries in the world, but also some of beer’s most important history.
It was Duke Wilhelm IV, the owner of Munich’s royal Hofbräuhaus himself, who passed the 1500s-era creed – the Bavarian Purity Law – which defined what beer actually was, and over two hundred years ago, it was Munich that first instituted the beloved and all-holy biergärten.
Sip 'n Ship - a San Diego Beer Festival On Boats!
There's no shortage of beer festivals in San Diego, but last weekend I had one of my all-time-favorite experiences at one though initially I was skeptical. For those of you who have attended beer fests, you know that typically these events are just row after row of tap tents in a park or along a road somewhere. This one was scattered among the many boats at the San Diego Maritime Museum! Yes - that's right, drunk people navigating gangways and ships moving beneath of our feet... what could possibly go wrong...
San Diego's Rhythm and Brews Beer Festival
It constantly amazes me just how many craft beers there are here in San Diego and virtually every weekend there is a beef festival celebrating this fantastic beverage. However, as much as I love seeing the same breweries all the time it's always fantastic to sample some new ones that I haven't tried before. You wouldn't believe it unless you lived here in San Diego, but there are SO MANY breweries here that even 20-30 min north of downtown is a whole other world. It was those North County breweries that made this event special for me and I look forward to exploring more of them individually over the next several months.
San Diego Brewers Presents Guild Rhythm & Brews on Saturday, April 25
It's that time of year again! Since it's perpetual spring time here in San Diego, what this means is that it's Beer Festival Season and you don't want to miss this festival featuring 100+ craft brews served up from more than 60 breweries, while listening to seven different musical performances that are guaranteed to keep you rocking all afternoon!
We'll be covering the 4th Annual Rhythm and Brews Festival later this month but wanted to give you a preview in the mean time. If you'll be there, let us know - we look forward to meeting up with you there...
Hanging out at Sierra Nevada Beer Camp Tour in San Diego
There's no shortage of awesome beer festivals in San Diego and since we have some of the most talented brewers in the world it is never boring to see the same cast of characters week after week.
However, it is always exciting to see something different and that's exactly what Sierra Nevada delivered with their Beer Camp Across America tour this summer.
