San Diego Beer Tour: Miralani Makers District (Miramar)

For a fun, interesting beer tour in Miramar that doesn’t require transportation between breweries, check out the Miralani Makers District. #craftbeer #beercation #beertour

[Originally published in January 2019, I made some updates at the beginning of 2020.]

This is a great option for a beer tour in Miramar that doesn’t require transportation between breweries. The Miralani Makers District has got to have one of the highest concentrations of breweries anywhere, surely. The first two are within about 130 feet of each other in the same commercial building. Around the back is Setting Sun Sake Brewing. There’s a wine tasting room and a distillery in the same small complex, and a sushi restaurant. Across the street is Thunderhawk Alements. Very close to Thunderhawk are the excellent co-located Serpentine Cider and Lost Cause Meadery. Lost Cause has won national mead competitions; I strongly recommend that you include a visit there if you are in the area. There is a kitchen in the tasting room, too. Protector is one of the nation’s few all-organic breweries, and it is veteran owned and operated.

There’s a real sense of excitement and growth in the Miralani Makers District, and it is a wonderful example of synergies and cooperation between neighboring businesses being good for all of them.
