Well Beachwood bbq in Seal Beach always has some good stuff on tap.

Here is a link to the webcam on the beer board, it is updated every 15 mins.

As of this post I see Blind Pig, Dogfish Festina Peche, Victory Hop Wallop, Sublimely on cask, Alesmith etc...

The other Place is Hollingshead Deli in Orange. They carry everything you can imagine. Last time there I bought a 6 pack of Pure Hoppiness and the time before he was cutting deals on Pliny by the case. They also have a bar with tons of great stuff on tap.

Are you driving or flying in to SF? Any other states you might be hitting? I can recommend a few in UT if you do...

But Bear Republic was great when I tried it too. Would recommend sitting at the bar and having as many as you can

I'll be flying to SF from LA, it was cheaper/quicker.

Oh I'll def be hitting up a few bars (any suggestions would be great), but was probably going to spend the days finding what I could and drinking on the beach as well. Aside from maybe pliney, I'm hoping to spend each drink having something I've never had before

If you make it out to the Inland Empire (San Bernardino) you would will want to stop into Hangar 24. They are the fast growing local brewer in the area. I recommend the Orange Wheat. http://www.hangar24brewery.com/

THIS blew me AWAY! My parents live in Paso Robles so I'd grown accustomed to DBA but when I had the unfiltered. WOW.

You're already planning on it, but I second your plans to try anything and everything you can from Deschutes Brewery.

Russian River is my favorite brewery doing really unique things, and Deschutes is my favorite brewery of classic styles.
