Are you a craft beer fanatic? (I am.) Want to enjoy your adult beverages and then walk home? (I do.) Well then, come check out downtown San Diego! With the addition of the Stone Company Store at 1202 Kettner Boulevard in the Columbia District, 92101 has even more easily accessible craft beer options.
Karl Strauss Brewing has been in the Columbia District since February 1989. Stone, the newest kid on the 92101 block, definitely has more taps but Karl Strauss has 10 drafts plus fantastic food. Try the fish tacos, decadent mac and cheese, or the burgers. And chili! You won’t be disappointed. And they do $8 64-oz growler fills on Fridays. Want to enjoy these establishments and then walk home? Check out The Grande (North and South), Sapphire Tower, or Treo. I’ll need to hit Stone a few more times before I get the hang of it but I definitely recommend the Reason Be Damned Belgian Style Abbey Ale aged in Red Wine Barrels. Wow!
Mission Brewery has been around for a while in the East Village (Ballpark District) just east of Petco Park and actually lies within the footprint of the proposed Charger Stadium. Icon, Park Terrace, M2i, Fahrenheit are all close by. Also in the East Village is Monkey Paw Brewing. If you’re hooked on their beers and cheesesteaks (the Blairsteak with waffle fries is amazing), then Union Square or even Cortez Hill condos would be good options.
Last but certainly not least is Ballast Point in north Little Italy. So easy to walk to if you lived at Hawthorn Place, Acqua Vista, or La Vita. Sound like the lifestyle you’ve been looking for? Let’s grab a beer and talk about downtown San Diego real estate. Contact me today and let me know when and where. I’ll be there.
