San Diego

Wed May 15, 2013 5:53 pm

I'm gonna be in San Diego in mid June. Here's the catch: I'll have my kids. 2 and6. We're going to Stone and Pizza Port because they're family friendly. Any other spots fit the bill? Alpine?

I do wanna hit Alpine, even if I have to sneak away for a bit. Also Societe. Anywhere else a must go?

Green Flash is great and a must-visit but it's just a tasting area in the brewery (at least that's what it was in 2010 during NHC). Also, Alesmith and Lost Abbey.

Thanks! Love all 3 of those breweries. Since I have limited sneak away time, I'm trying to go mostly to places that have hard to find or draft only releases.

Alpine would be a must for me. Next time I go to San Diego, I'd likely just spend the day there. The IPAs were epic, and the food was pretty goood too.

Is Alpine family friendly?

Alpine has both a brewery side and a small restaurant side. I doubt the brewery is open to kids. It's too small. I don't know why the restaurant wouldn't be though. It's small also, but nothing anti-kids.

I would check out Obriens pub. They have every single must have IPA on draft most of the time. I take my 3 year old for lunch all the time after the zoo.

Alpine is VERY small but at least go to get some beers. Where are you staying? That may help a little.....

+1 on O'Briens.

They set up a pre-conference event there before NHC a couple years ago. They wouldn't have picked it if it wasn't good. (I went and it was crowded as all hell, but the tap list was great!)
