Great craft beer... fun for the whole family?
So, you're in the mood to go out for a great craft beer. There's just one problem... it's family night! Do you forgo the brew, knowing that family restaurants typically have few, if any, good beer choices? Or, do you skip out on the family for the evening so that you can hit your favorite brewpub for a pint or two? Truth be told, you don't have to do either. You can have your cake and eat it too! If you search, you can find family friendly restaurants that offer great craft beer as well. I hit up one of my favorite spots with the family this evening, San Diego Brewing Co. The atmosphere is as easy going as it gets. You walk in and seat yourself at one of their spacious tables or booths. I usually opt for a table because it gives me a good view of one of their large overhead chalkboards that list what's on tap that day. There are always lots of families and kids, so my three little ones are never (at least not usually) the loudest ones there! There are usually 6 or 7 beers on tap that they brew in-house, or you can choose from their extensive tap list, around 50 in all. The staff is nice, and the food is very good. I never visit without having a cup of their signature Jalapeno Beer Cheese soup. I always leave satisfied, as does the whole family. They are located at 10450 Friars Rd. Suite L, San Diego, California, 92120. You can visit them online at http://www.sandiegobrewing.com Stop by sometime, and don't forget to bring the family!
