Life is GOOD! Local beer?

San Diego now has,like, 86 craft beer producers. We are the center of the beer universe. And to make things even better, Stone Brewery is opening up a satellite brewery and restaurant about a mile away in Point Loma. They also have 2 liter sealable bottles that you can bring in for refills. It's their Arrogant Bastard Oaked Ale. Once you pay the deposit on the bottle, the ale is $12 a refill, cheaper than a six-pack. Life is good. At my favorite bar, at Southwestern Yacht Club, the only yellow fizzy beer left is the Miller Light. Everything else is real beer.

Well, that's stretching things a little bit, but it is probably the best beer city in California and possibly on the West Coast, although I'm sure Portlandites would have something to say about that.

They wouldn't be the only ones. In fact, it seems like just about every major city has 86 micro breweries anymore, even on the east coast. Seattle will definitely spoil you on this front, as will Portland. Probably more here though. Our yard is right between Maritime Pacific, Hales Ales, and Red Hook. All within walking distance, and that's just the big ones!

Yeah, if you ask me, the ABITA brewery in Abita Springs Louisiana will beat 'em all, and the Lazy Magnolia folks in the Kiln, Mississippi are right up there with Abita

I beg to inform you beer lovers,but Asheville,NC has won the Beer City USA for the last two years! Great local beers but the sailing sucks.

Those 2 liter sealable bottles are quite popular here too. There are four breweries in my town (pop. about 100000) offering what is called "Zwickelbier". You take your bottle to the brewery, and they fill it directly from the fermentation tanks. So you get really fresh beer, unfiltered and unpasteurized. Keeps about a week in the fridge, but usually doesn't get anywhere near a chance to spoil around here...

That's what we call a "growler". Been around forever.

Re: Life is GOOD! Local beer?

Well, here it is, evidence that beer was critical to the establishment of civilization: Beer Lubricated the Rise of Civilization, Study Suggests | LiveScience. Whichever of our locales claims superiority, we are, at least, centers of modern civilization. What an irony that it originated in the Tigris-Euphrates region.

Lads and lassies , the number of breweries is not an indication of good beer, merely confused palettes. Lol

Oh man ... I'll on that Gord. Sleeping Giant Brewery has been a g-d send to this parched northerner as we suffer through the long, long winter.
