Best of Beer Week: November 3

Suggestions for closing out the first weekend of San Diego Beer Week

Place

O'Brien's Pub

4646 Convoy Street, San Diego

Chargers vs. Redskins Sour Brunch: The Chargers appear to be on the right track. Catch this case of lightning in a bottle along with glass after glass of tart, tasty sour beer from a board stocked with acidic treats from the deep, cold box of wonders at O’Brien’s Pub. | O’Brien’s Pub, 4646 Convoy Street, Kearny Mesa, 10 a.m.

Place

Hamilton's Tavern

1521 30th Street, San Diego

Man the Victory At Sea Fleet: Few beers take on as many flavors so nicely as Victory At Sea, a coffee- and vanilla-infused imperial porter from Ballast Point Brewing & Spirits. Get iterations stoked with everything from peppermint and fennel to mole and Crunchberries. | Hamilton's Tavern, 1521 30th Street, South Park, 10 a.m.

Place

Carnitas Snack Shack

2632 University Avenue, San Diego

Fifth Annual Green Flash Smokeout: Described as “a petting zoo of smoked meats,” this event will feature meats and seafood from local producers, plus live cooking demos, and special beers like Little Freak and Silva Stout. Put that in your pipe and smoke it. | Carnitas’ Snack Shack, 2632 University Avenue, North Park, 12 p.m.

Place

Stone Brewing Co.

1999 Citracado Parkway, Escondido

Ultimate Beer & Chocolate: Fast for 24 hours, then approach this decadent event featuring an entire heart-shaped box’s worth of chocolate truffles—15 to be exact—expertly paired with 10 fine craft beers brought to this sweet event from all around the world. | Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens, 1999 Citracado Parkway, Escondido, 12 p.m.

Note: All of the events above can be found on the official San Diego Beer Week site.

Disclosure: In addition to his work as a staff writer for the Reader, Brandon Hernández is also a communications specialist for Stone Brewing Co. However, his recommendation of the aforementioned event organized by the company is provided independent of that employment relationship.
