The weekend before my son turned 16, we'd been invited to a birthday party in San Diego. Not ones to let a beer opportunity pass us up, we accepted and packed our bags. We spent the entire weekend exploring San Diego and it's many breweries. And with so many to choose from, we had to narrow our list to a manageable amount. We ended up with: Saint Archer, Stone, Iron Fist, Belching Beaver, White Labs, Coronado Brewing, Modern Times, Ballast Point and Green Flash.
