Beer Trippin’ in California. Part 6 – Mission Brewery

Our final stop during our San Diego brew adventure was at Mission Brewery.  Mission has a long history of brewing in San Diego, dating all the way back to 1913.  The brewery closed their doors in 1918, but the name was revived in 2007, when owner / founder Dan Selis launched a new line of […]


Beer Trippin’ in California. Part 5 – AleSmith Brewing Company

When I hear the term “Big Beer” in Colorado, I immediately think of Avery Brewing and Great Divide Brewing.  Both have a vast selection of big beers ranging from 8%+ ABV Imperial Stouts, Double IPA’s, Barleywines and so on.  When I hear the term “Big Beer” in reference to Southern California, I think of San […]

No beer trippin’ report in San Diego would be complete without a visit to at least one of the Pizza Port locations.  The original Pizza Port was founded in Solana Beach in 1987, by owners Vince and Gina Marsaglia.  Vince began using the restaurant’s extra space to experiment with homebrewing.   5 years later in 1992, a 7 BBL […]

After two great stops at Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens and Port / The Lost Abbey, it was time to start heading South towards San Diego.  So for our last stop of the day, we decided to visit Green Flash Brewing.  This place caught me completely off guard.  From the outside, Green Flash looks […]


Beer Trippin’ in California. Part 2 – Port Brewing & The Lost Abbey

Just a short drive from our first stop at Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens, is Port Brewing & The Lost Abbey in San Marcos, CA.  Although only separated by a few miles, the two breweries feel like they’re worlds apart.  Unlike Stone, you won’t find any zen gardens, koi ponds or fancy restaurant here.  Instead, […]


Beer Trippin’ in California. Part 1 – Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens.

What can I say about Stone Brewing that hasn’t already been said?  While I won’t bore you with facts and figures or the latest production numbers, I would like to strongly encourage every craft beer drinker out there, to at some point, make the pilgrimage to Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens in Escondido, CA.
