Here are a few things you may not know about the San Diego Craft Brewing Industry:

  • The craft beer industry in San Diego has an annual economic impact of about $300 million
  • San Diego County has been ranked as "Best Beer City" by numerous sources (CNN, Men's Fitness, USA Today, New York Times) 

The San Diego Brewers Guild is preparing for its sixth annual San Diego Beer Week 2014 (SDBW), November 7-16.  San Diego Beer Week is a ten-day celebration inspiring people to drink local, craft beer and promoting San Diego’s thriving brewing culture with multiple events happening across the county. The festival attracts beer tourism, fosters knowledge of the region’s brewing heritage, and serves as a showcase for San Diego's breweries, restaurants, pubs, and other businesses with ties to the craft beer community. 

You can celebrate SDBW in Escondido by visiting the hugely popular Stone Brewing World Bistro and Gardens, as well as Escondido’s other two craft breweries, Offbeat Brewing Company and  Plan 9 Alehouse.
