With roughly 500 hundred events ranging from pint nights to festivals and all-out, multi-venue fermentable free-for-alls, San Diego Beer Week can be confusing…and that’s before you start drinking. Fortunately, I know a thing or two about craft beer and our local scene. As such, I’ll be doling out info on some of the most special and significant goings-on during this ten-day span. Feel something incredible is missing? Comment and help get the word out there.

DAY FOUR | Monday, November 7

11:30 a.m. – Cellar-bration The Linkery in North Park will be pulling some well-aged gems from their beer cellar. That list includes Ballast Point’s tribute to Cabrillo-era S.D.-native ingredients, San Salvador Saison (’10 and ’11), and several Stone Vertical Epic Ale iterations from the past 11 years. Details

5 p.m. – San Diego IPA Insanity The country’s reigning Small Brewpub of the Year, Pizza Port Ocean Beach, is celebrating San Diego and hops in one fell swoop. Pizza Port could show off local hop bombs all by their lonesome, but instead they’re loading up their taps with single and double IPAs from all over the county. Details

5 p.m. – Dogfish Head Dirty Dozen Deleware’s Dogfish Head is the source for some of the most complex, imaginative, culinarily driven beers in the country, but they can be hard to come by. O’Brien’s owner Tom Nickel has been stashing away such as Bitches Brew, My Antonia, and the highly coveted 18% ABV 120-Minute IPA. Details

6 p.m. – Terra Bistro Manzanita Brewing Dinner Enjoy a five-course menu featuring butternut squash gnocchi, smoked chile-rye cured salmon, caramel-glazed duck breast, and pumpkin-spice cake with Rustic Horizon Red Ale, Where’s the Smoke Rye Ale, Gillespie Brown Ale, and Pumpkin Ale from Santee’s Manzanita Brewery. Details

7 p.m. – Beer U: Intro to San Diego Craft Beer Take in what’s sure to be one of the more enjoyable classes around — a session on the history of San Diego Brewing at Escondido’s Stone World Bistro & Gardens. Enjoy local beers such Iron Fist Martial Law, Mission Blonde Ale, and Mother Earth California Creamin’ along the way. Details
