San Diego breweries among best in the world....

Did this warrant a bump of a thread (and an argument) that had been dead for over 6 months? LOL

What does everyone think of the San Diego Reddit's "Best of San Diego"

Alpine may not count if they focused on the city, but I find the categories a bit limiting. I think that by pub they meant places that carried outside beer, which would sort of put Alpine in the brewery category. I like BLAH, but I'm a Toronado fan.

Most of the beer geeks that I know have gotten sort of tired of Green Flash.

It's so nice to not see Phil's listed as "best BBQ" that I'm willing to forgive them for the small stuff. LOL

What foods go with beer?

Stone 18th Anniversary Ale (an IPA with lemon Pledge notes).

What foods go with beer?

Sure - take a barleywine, for example. I cannot imagine anything fried that would go well with it, but that may just be me.

NM Hatch Chile Roastings in SD

That is correct, DoctorChow - September 13. I misread their advertisement, because usually they highlight the La Jolla events for me and they didn't this time.

NM Hatch Chile Roastings in SD

Bristol Farms stopped doing the roasting event here a few years back. Not enough interest. I got the impression that happened with Whole Foods as well. Surprised that there isn't at least one Sprouts locally that is doing it, though.

Dan Diego's on Morena

Weird place. Decent prices on most stuff, but every once in a while the hard to find stuff (e.g. a barrel aged beer from Firestone Walker) will go for a lot more than you see elsewhere.

What foods go with beer?

There are quite a few beers that I'd never have with fried food. Anything high in alcohol, sweet, or lowly carbonated (e.g. a strong stout) would be a gross match with fried food, IMHO.

Dan Diego's on Morena

They changed their name a while back. Same owner, he just changed their name and made them more beer oriented. Same guy that is running the liquor store next door (Jimbo's - has one of the most comprehensive beer selections in San Diego).

Real dairy frozen custard in San Diego?

There is something special and nostalgic about those DQ dip cones.

I see there is a Rita's opening in Mira Mesa (Camino Ruiz Plaza) as well. They seem to be occupying places that are a bit off the beaten path - interesting strategy.

Restaurant for corporate foodies

And of course if they have a car or pay for cab/shuttle/etc. Most conferences are either downtown/Gaslamp, but you'll see a lot in Mission Valley and a few at the Mission Bay or La Jolla coastal hotels.

One man's exhaustive search for the best fish taco in SD. .

I know this is getting far away from fish tacos, but I've always wondered if many women they are realizing when they are off key, or do they just don't care? I always assumed it was the latter, but I've learned that not everybody has the ear for that.

Duck Dynasty + Craft Beer =

One might say those are craft beer beards as well, so it probably is a decent match.

This place is 40 miles from where I grew up. Their beer has pretty respectable marks on BA, it appears. The next time I'm back there visiting family, I might be tempted to check it out for curiosity's sake.

The History Channel changed its name to "History" 6 years ago, Josh - you must have missed the memo.

Dr Brown's bottles 4-packs?

I've seen individual bottles at Bristol Farms, but they may have 4 packs for sale as well (though I wouldn't bet on it).

I'm sure that is near the top of his list if/when he returns.

I find it interesting that he seems to agree with many of the Chowhounders, especially with respect to South Beach Bar & Grill. I'm sort of surprised to see Puesto with a 4-fish rating, though - that's one I've never given a fair chance because I thought they seemed like they were aiming more at the vibe than the food. I'll give it a chance.

Too bad Bahia is such a far drive from me. I guess I could make a late afternoon run when going to pick up my daughter at camp (she's in PB these days).

Your Favorite Place to Get a Grass-fed Burger and/or Steak in the San Diego Environs

Oddly enough, after eating a 1/2 pound burger you are hungrier than you were before you ate.

Curious - does Colorado now have a new type of "grass fed" beef?

San Diego CLOSED Restaurants: Thread Four (2014 edition)

I cannot imagine you are that disappointed; for some odd reason, I don't see the Costa Verde plaza being your type of place. Even so, not to worry - you can always go to Roy's, 5 Guys, Sammy's, Chipotle Express, the Greek place, or the Bristol Farms cafeteria.

San Diego CLOSED Restaurants: Thread Four (2014 edition)

From the article:

"While the company is still working on the specifics of what will replace the space, Cohn did reveal that it would have a casual vibe, a craft beer focus and a new menu, but no 'grilling your own steaks.'"

Probably a little more upscale than a Eureka, but having a varied draft/craft selection is par for the course these days.

San Diego CLOSED Restaurants: Thread Four (2014 edition)

The Cohn Group's La Jolla Strip Club (sister restaurant of the Gaslamp Strip Club) - grill your own steak places (not burlesque entertainment), will be closed. Apparently the concept wasn't working too well in the UTC, which shocks me little. A casual place with a "craft beer focus" will likely replace it. Sounds sort of like...Eureka Burger...

why is cider on beer board?

Are you asking about cider in general, or hard cider? Typically, hard ciders are consumed where beers are consumed, and sold alongside with it, so that is probably why it is discussed here and not the spirits board.

I don't think there was ever any intention for non-alcoholic ciders to be discussed here.

Yeah, somebody's quick on the trigger.

Jokes aside, I would be curious to see what certain people think of the invention of a style. :)
