Valuable information here: The top 50 places in America to have a beer.
I have not been to their top 3, but I can’t argue about the Toronado (SF) being no worse than 4th, and Papago (Scottsdale) and O’Brien’s (just down the highway from Ladera Frutal) making the top 10!
But how could Liar’s Club be only no. 30 and Pizza Port (the Carlsbad version) only no. 40? Port Solana comes in at no. 50. Seems I have some research to do in order to validate.
Hard to complain about living in the same county with four of the top 50!
See also the top 50 craft brews in America. (I can’t even begin to accept their no. 1, even if it is very local.) Several SD county brews on the list. I’m always somewhat amazed when I think about it, but San Diego really is one of the four or five best metro areas in the USA for brewing!
Readers are more than welcome to chime in on the quality of locales and products on these lists.
