San Diego Beer Recap

There was obviously more to our visit than just beer, but it certainly played a large part in our decision to visit San Diego.

And being the beer nerd (in addition to a regular nerd) that I am, naturally I kept a list of all the beers we tried while we were here. Here it is, the drool worthy list of beer:

Yep, we're nerdy

And yes, the list is alphabetized by brewery. I thought about alphabetizing within the brewery, but wasn’t sure if I should go by style or catchy name, so I just left it where it was.

And before you all think that there is no possible way we could have sampled all of these beers and managed to have any memory of our trip at all, I will point out that a few of these were sipped and immediately poured out due to being terrible beyond words. (i.e. Manzanita Brewing Chaotic Double IPA and both of the Ironfire brews) Also, quite a few of these were had as part of beer flights at various brewpubs around San Diego. So we did not stumble our way through our visit; rather, we sipped, tasted, and enjoyed.
