SAN DIEGO FANATIC
The best known in town is Karl Strauss Brewery, with several locations. 9675 Scranton Rd, in Mira Mesa. There is one downtown, (my favorite) 1157 Columbia Street, San Diego. There is also one in La Jolla on Wall Street, 1044 Wall St, La Jolla. The food is good, beer is great, atmosphere, fun. Go have a beer at Karl Strauss.The PIZZA PORT is a great little local brewery and they serve great food. There is one in Solana Beach (on the 101 just north of Loma's Santa Fe) in Carlsbad (on Carlsbad Village Drive) and there is new one in Ocean Beach. Great beer!Rock Bottom Brewery. It's a national chain, but has tasty beer, good atmosphere, check em out downtown at 401 G Street.Gordon Biersch is another national chain, but again, good beer and atmosphere. Located in Mission Valley at 5010 Mission Center Road.On Coronado Island, enjoy the microbrews at, The Coronado Brewing Company, 170 Orange Avenue.There are quite a few Oggi's Pizza and Brewing Company locations throughout the city.The Pizza is good, so is the beer.
