San Diego Beer Week: Day Six
With roughly 500 events 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'm doling out daily info on some of the most significant goings-on during this 10-day span. Feel something incredible is missing? Comment and help get the word out there. No matter what, get out there and soak up some suds.
