San Diego loves its craft beer, and San Diego Beer Week, happening Nov 4-13, is a great way to find out why we're the "capital of craft." Tastings and special events are a great way to discover what master brewers can do with hops. Here are some of the highlight events where you can chug, gulp, or savor a new brew.
Guild Fest is a 2-day kick-off event for the week of beer celebration. There'll be more than 60 breweries offering tastes on San Diego's Broadway Pier, and some of the selections will be unique to the event. There'll be plenty of food and music to go with the tastings, and you can get smart about beer at Beer College.
Relax in a beautiful setting while you enjoy beer from 28 breweries paired with food from 14 chefs. Sit back and indulge in unlimited tastings.
Beer Train Trolley Tours
Let the trolley take you to 4 breweries with a tasting flight at each. The tour runs daily throughout San Diego Beer Week and includes a guide, behind-the-scenes tours, and lunch. Brush up on your beer trivia to win prizes!
Battle of the Guilds
San Diego's three brewing guilds come together at this event to show of their goods. They'll each present 15 craft beers and compete for the Golden Key.
Tastings At Your Hotel
Relax back at The Dana after a full day of tastings at San Diego Beer Week, then head to our Firefly Restaurant and Bar for dinner with spectacular views of our bay. If you've still got beer cravings, join us for happy hour or have a microbrew tasting along with your supper. Hang out around the firepit and toast to the end of a great day.
