A Few Reasons I Love San Diego

Posted by Shawn | Posted in Craft Beer, Just For Fun | On 11-16-2012


San Diego harbors everything I love in this world. Here are a few reasons why I am in a love affair with this city.

1. Beer Everywhere


Brandon Hernandez of San Diego Reader keeps his fingers on the pulse of everything beer in this town, and he just wrote about 3 new breweries on the way. As if we don’t have enough of them to cover the streets in 1 foot of beer, I welcome the addition of new players in the industry (if done right). I hate when businessmen looking to make buck take advantage of the burgeoning craft beer scene and produce shitty beer that’s not a result of love. I want people seriously committed to the craft.

That’s why I’m excited for these 3 new ones to hit San Diego soon. They all come from homebrewers or experienced brew masters who want to launch their own venture. Keep your eye out for Belching Beaver Brewery, Butcher’s Brewing and Saint Archer. Full article here.

2. Beautiful Scenery in My Backyard


I live in Crown Point and every morning I pass over the bay on Ingraham St bridge to a beautiful sunrise over the mountains on my left and a clear blue sky / water scene to my right. Heading down the street I can ride my bike to small but crisp waves and enter an empty lineup looking back at the cliffs of Bird Rock.

Amplified Ale Works, located at the end of my street, took this picture here this morning and it sums up my love for my backyard.

3. Gluttonous Food


I’m just going to quickly say I obviously love the food scene in San Diego. Here is an example that you can get your hands on today from 5pm to close at The Linkery. Deep…fried…bacon. Need I say more?
