If you've never been, Stone is definitely a place to go, but people overlook a lot of the awesome south county breweries. I'm partial to the ones near my house (6-7 within walking distance) which include: Alesmith, Green Flash, Ballast Point, Hess, Wet 'n Reckless, Rough Draft, the Karl Strauss brewpub where I got married, and the White Labs tasting room (bunch of the same beer, fermented with different yeasts! Awesome).

I'd say Green Flash, Alesmith, and Hess are my favorites. Green Flash is my favorite place to grab a pint, Alesmith makes the best beer, and Hess is the coolest spot- I'm a nanobrewer so I like hanging out at nanobreweries.

A couple weeks ago we took a trip down to Escondido and hit a bunch of stuff around there. Next time I want to get further south and hit some of the stuff you mentioned. I grabbed a bottle of Alesmith IPA at Pizza Port and it's one of the best I've had. I'll definitely have to make it there next time I'm in the area.

Definitely Stone and Pizza Port.

Haven't seen Coronado listed yet. Good beer, good place for dinner with the family.

It's very new, maybe a couple months. They hired the head brewer from the La Jolla Rock Bottom Brewpub- great guy who makes some great beer. A buddy of mine's architecture firm designed the tasting room- it's a neat space, and accross the street from my gym

Many people choose houses based on their proximity to schools or work.

You sir, are in a whole different league!

If you're going to Lost Abby swing by Stone Brewing, it's just around the block. I haven't hit Pizza Port but hear it's good. There's a few commercial brew-pups; Karl Strauss and Rock Bottom - I wouldn't go out of your way for either. PB has a brew pub too, not bad. If there's one bar I would say you must check out it would be Toronados on 32nd st in Northpark, huge tap and bottle selection. Have fun, and enjoy that beautiful weather!
