San Diego Brewery Tour

    I'd like to organize a Brewery Tour trip in San Diego CA with HBF members. I'm thinking sometime in June or July. I know a lot of the membership is strewn about the globe, but for anyone who could make a family vacation out of the trip to Southern California, I think it would be a worthy investment of one day of the vacay.

    Potential Breweries to Hit:
    Stone Brewery
    Karl Strauss
    Port Brewing / Pizza Port
    Green Flash
    Ballast Point
    The Lost Abbey
    Alesmith Brewing

    Depending on who / how many are going, I'll work out the logistics.

    Let me know if you;re interested.

    @WolfBier I recall you being local, but I haven't seen you online for a while so I thought I would give you a shout out.

    I'm in, assuming I haven't moved back east, I'm most definitely in, last time I was at lost abbey someone had stolen the giant crucifix from the lobby the day before! Stone is always tops when heading that way too!

    I hope I don't move!

    I'll look into it, but I'm going to say I won't be attending.

    No luck. I go off starting the 24th...

    Do not worry about me though, my schedule is likely to change before then. And getting the wife to let me jaunt off to San Diego will be delicate.


    I took a short one a couple hours ago. It was nice. --

    I consider having Wyoming represented at this thing to be a major milestone... You need to start priming that pump.

    Unless I take my vacation that week...then I'd pretty much have to take the family to Disneyland. Eh. It's just money, right?

    Don't hold your breath, but my wife is on board. She's all stoked about the zoo and sea world... Other suggestions for the family would be welcome.

    Ok, I just checked and it looks like my wife is supposed to be out of town that weekend.

    Does anyone have a conflict with June 8, 9?

    Daughters birthday and my anniversary, respectively. That's not necessarily an issue, though.

    no one has mentioned the ocean.
    curly, there is an ocean.
    a big one. with sand beaches.
    family fun taken care of!

    i think its free too, or it was the last time i was there. by now, Cali has probably found some way to tax it though......

    I'm going to plan for June 8/9 unless someone tells me that wont work for them. Curly, I'm assuming it will be a family vaca so you can make this work, let me know if the fam isn't cool with it.

    Yep. Now I just need to figure out the financial side. :) This is working out nicely because we wanted to do a family getaway this summer, but hadn't decided on where.
