Default Any Breweries or Winery in Sand Diego?

Last year I went to Stone and this year I would like to go to another brewery and Winery in San Diego. Any suggestions? I will be driving in from Yuma, AZ so anything around San Diego would be good. I enjoyed doing the tour of Stone last year.

I thought San Diego had a crap load of breweries. Or are you looking for a Combo (wine/beer) thing? Cause crimey, I mean there's Ballast point, Green Flash etc....

Lost Abbey/Port is less than 10 minutes from Stone (located in the original Stone location). Mother Earth, Oceanside Aleworks, Iron Fist and Aztec are all relatively nearby as well.

My favorites in San Diego are Lost Abbey, Ballast Point, Societe, Coronado, Mission (very cool location in an old Wonder Bread factory downtown), Stone, and Alesmith. A lot of people would throw Green Flash in there as well.

I'd be happy to meet up with you or anyone else wanting to check out SDs abundance of breweries.

Also, as someone pointed out, Temecula has a fun gauntlet of wineries to check out.

I'd highly recommend checking out the tasting room at White labs yeast factory. Its quite close to Ballast point brewery as well.
http://www.whitelabs.com/tasting_room.html
They have multiple batches of the same beer fermented with different yeasts gives you a great idea of the flavor contributions.
Also you get a short tour of the facility and how the various yeasts are produced.
