Yea, unfortunately they don't seem to distribute their better (IMO), or more interesting beers. Their "core" beers are pretty good, but nothing which would necessarily separate them from the pack. For instance their Islander IPA, which just took gold in the WBC strong ale category, is pretty good, but not as good as their 435, Frog's Breath, and Idiot IPAs... again, just my opinion.Went to see The Drowners and Temples last night. The new Ballast Point joint was just around...

They're definitely one of my top local go-to breweries. Lots of good new ones springing up (Hess, which just won WBC gold, and Societe are both very good), but overall I tend to stick to Ballast Point, Ale Smith, Alpine Beer Co., Green Flash, Monkey Paw, Coronado Brewing Company and Lost Abbey for sours and Belgian styles. Of course, many folks still consider Stone king around here, but I burned out on their hop overload about 10yrs ago... Still enjoy them here and...
... what would you wear it with?
Plus, high neck crew is not louche.
X-post from waydn thread: ERDM Demi Tasse with rum and grapefruit cocktail.
Several beers from Monkey Paw Brewery here in San Diego, earlier today after golf w/ dad-in-law. All excellent. Saison was a standout... as was the oatmeal pale. These guys know what they're doing.

Many "Frog's Breath" IPAs at Coronado Brewing Co. Several 435 IPAs too. FB citrusy and spicy. 435 a very nice break from overtopped errthang. Thought it worth mentioning they were recently named World Beer Cup Champion for mid-size brewery and brewmaster, along with taking gold and silver medals for a couple of their brews.
