Actually. I totally understand the sentiment. there's a shit ton of really good beer out there all things equal I would prefer more people getting wealthy instead of one large corporation getting wealthy. I guess I do have some anti capitalistic aspirations.

But if one beer is better I wouldn't really care

Speaking (somewhat) of San Diego beer: I'll be there in February visiting some of my wife's family, and I think we'll have a night out in town. I've never been before, so what can't I miss? Also, coffee / restaurant recommendations would be appreciated too.

I'm in LA but really enjoy SD. Just quickly off the top of my head (depending on your time/length of stay).

Gaslamp District: good restaurants, bars and live music (Cafe Sevilla has great Spanish food... some of the best garlic soup there)
Old Town: mission history and some pretty good Mexican food
Balboa Park: beautiful botanical gardens
Pacific and Mission beaches
Coronado: cool island, Navy shit & the Hotel del
La Jolla: slightly north where UCSD is located… this is my go-to chill spot. George's @ the Cove has roof-top patio right on the coast for sunset martinis and fish tacos… yep, you should do that…

plus the beer! cheers.gif

You can goole those suggestions and see what suits you. I haven't been in a while or done any brewery tours, but I'm sure others will add to this. Enjoy!

@brp2

Depends on where you'll be staying, as your time is fairly limited. Let me know and I'll point you in the right direction.

Finally get to drink this'un again. Been a couple of years. The best Flemish Old Brown ale out there. So smooth, and 13%. Mindblowing really.

Wasn't sure, with the funny name and label and all, but very pleasant beer. Aftertaste a bit shorter and more bitter than expected. But will buy again. smile.gif

^ Nice. Delirium is a personal favorite. Was in New York City last weekend and got to go beer drinking at George Keeley on the Upper West Side, Blind Tiger in the Village and check out some tasting flights at Top Hops. Tried a number of things I liked, but really enjoyed the Billy Full Stack Double IPA, Alesmith Hawaiian Speedway Stout and Bells Expedition Stout. Absolutely fantastic.

Before, I had the regular. The aged one tastes quite a lot differently. Has that complex "oud bruin"-like flavor that some of the TAPX (Mein Aventinus Barrique--which I've had yesterday--etc.) have, but of course more delicate (no cask, no added Eisbock etc). Good stuff.

Thanks… it is very much so. Historic actually… it's the old Christian Moerlein brewery… which is now Rhinegeist.
