With ELEVEN changes to the list, Dec 2019 has to be one of the most active months ever in #sdbeer. #SanDiego saw 4 #breweries change categories, 1 open and 2 close. 160 breweries + 56 tasting rooms = 216 locations, one less than Nov. Look for SEVEN additions in early 2020!
The “inland” part of Oceanside has four breweries you can drink at (and one you can’t). But if you are looking for a “special” craft beer experience, this is probably not the tour you are looking for. #sdbeer #indiebeer #localbeer

This 1.2 mile beer tour of the downtown area of Oceanside takes you to five of Oceanside’s ten breweries and tasting rooms. #sdbeer #craftbeer #localbeer #indiebeer
Below, I’ve copied a press release that blew the socks off craft beer commentators. Here are links to my coverage…
This video was the runner-up at the 2010 Short Pour Film Festival, “Legend of the Craft Beer Bandit” is a…
Nov 2019 San Diego brewery update: Three closings and four openings leave us with 161 breweries and 56 tasting rooms for a grand total of 217 brewery locations in San Diego County.
Dogleg Brewing Co. soft opened Nov. 8, 2019, next door to the new Eppig brewery in Vista, just down the block from Helia Brewing. I’m calling this the Keystone Kraft Kbeer Krawl (the ‘k’ on “Kbeer” is silent, of course).
The Sanctuary, Lost Abbey’s second tasting room, opened at the end of October 20-19 in San Elijo Hills. It is a lovely room in a lovely village, with front and back patios. And, of course, the beer is great.
In October 2019, one brewery opened (Eppig in Vista) and one brewery changed categories from “no tasting room” to “with tasting room” (Harland in Scripps Ranch). There are now 156 craft and 5 non-craft breweries in San Diego County (net +1), 54 craft and 1 non-craft tasting rooms (no net change), for a grand total of 216 locations (net +1).
Harland Brewing Co.’s has opened a tasting room at their Scripps Ranch brewery. It is good.
Small and slapdash but maybe what you are looking for in the center of Escondido.
October 18, 2019, marks the third anniversary since the start of this brewery quest blog. Cheers to three years!
The Invigatorium is really about coffee, but they have six Modern Times beer taps, too. This tasting room joins a thriving craft beer scene in East Village.
The three High Spot Beer Co. beers are contract brewed as Bluewater Grill’s house beer brand. They succeed in what they are trying to be.
The fun, hip vibe means you don’t need to be a hard core beer geek to enjoy Pure at the Park. But if you are, you will really enjoy it.
The new Eppig Brewing location in Vista is one of the best in San Diego County. #sdbeer #craftbeer #sandiegocraftbeer
SouthNorte, a guest brewery at Coronado Bay Park, now has four permanent taps at that location’s tasting room—two of the four 2019 GABF medalists. Plus Coronado Brewing had two other winners this year, one of which is also a permanent offering. All three of those are available in cans, which is absolutely amazing. Go get some.
