With more than 30 breweries in San Diego County, San Diego is one of America’s best destinations for craft beer. Choose from three San Diego brewery tours, where you'll taste a variety of beers at some of the city’s most notable breweries and learn about the brewing process. Don’t worry about driving after drinking -- you’ll either be walking or riding a bus as your guide takes you to the best spots in town.
Begin your walking tour of downtown San Diego with a stroll to Karl Strass brewery, known for its local IPAs. You'll enjoy a beer-tasting with a quick explanation of the plant and brewing process. Next you'll see sights of downtown San Diego as you continue to Rock Bottom Brewery for a quick taste of their various brews, and then you’ll head to the Yard House to see 50 different selections of beer on tap and sample a few! The tour continues to a popular downtown hangout, the Beer Co, where you can taste more hand-crafted brew. You’ll then end the tour at Altitude, a fun rooftop bar.
