I've always heard good things about it even before it became a mini-mecca for craft brews. I will get down there one of these days.

I did not know there was a brewery in Silverton CO, That gives me one more reason to get out there, I've been chomping on the bit to get to Silverton Mountain now I have another reason to go there!

I had some friends out this weekend from Tucson to enjoy the kick off of SD beer week. We went to the Brewer Guild festival, and they where vary impressed with all the different styles of beer and breweries represented. The event was fairly well attended for the Saturday afternoon session, but I now the evening sessions where packed.

I don't have much experience with beer cities east of the rockies, so I can't comment on that, but I think the west coast representation on that list is well merited.

Hey!!

In Escondido, I'm within a short distance of Stone, Lost Abbey/Port, Green Flash, and newcomers Mother Earth and Iron Fist. Except for Stone though, these are all tap rooms in the breweries. What we really need are more and better Brew Pubs. That's one thing I really liked about Portland.

Honestly, I don't even know what's near downtown San Diego anymore.

North County definitely has a good number of breweries. It is neat to know that they're all flourishing up there. Iron Fist is a great newcomer to the lineup, too.

San Diego proper has less breweries, but we have 30th Street and the bars that are on and around it. With Hamilton's, Toronado, Blind Lady, Livewire, Downtown Johnny Brown's, Small Bar, Ritual Tavern, The Neighborhood and more all serving great craft beer and with a max travel time of 10 minutes between any of them (and many much closer!), you have a great corridor that lies in and near downtown.

AND Stone is putting in a tasting room in South Park, on 30th Street. All of San Diego County is pretty amazing. Now if Pizza Port would only open an inland location.

I love looking through here and seeing cities I've never heard of. Going to take a wild shot and say that it's not going to be #1...

lol, I love this thread resurrection, as I've avoided responding to it earlier. San Diego, y'all have great breweries, but Portland still has you beat, and I want to be fair, so let's base this entirely on quality beer based on the average strip bar in each region. Every titty bar in Portland has micro on tap, and they show pink when they serve drinks. CA's strip club laws are a detriment to you San Diego. No matter how good your beers are, Portland will win.
