I'd love to go to San Diego, not for a comic con though. That city has a lot of awesome breweries.

I was going to go this year, but it turns out I'm not. Maybe I'll go do one of the Brewery Tours of San Diego instead.

I live in San Diego. Not going to Comic Con, though, simply because of the ticket snafu and crowds. But I'll be hitting up the surrounding stuff like the Walking Dead Escape, etc.

I wish I lived in San Diego. I would kill for summer time high of 75 degrees with 20-30% humidity. I saw someone in another thread, maybe you Thumeblyna, talking about hating doing yardwork in 50 degree weather. To me that sounds positively delightful. It probably would to you as well had you ever pushed a lawnmower through St. Augustine grass in 95 degree weather with 90-100% humidity.

Never been to St. Augestine, but that weather sounds mighty familiar. It's the reason why I bought a riding mower with headlights.

No, I don't mean St. Augustine, FL, I meant St. Augusting grass. I live right outside of New Orleans. thankfully I now live in a condo and don't have to push a mower. Heck, the last time I actually had to push a mower was before they had even invented self-propelled mowers. The weather here is one of the reasons I bought a condo instead of a house.

Hmm, I see. Well, mowing is as far as I'm willing to go when it comes to landscaping. I couldn't tell you one kind of grass from another if my life depended on it. Some people love lawn care, me, I'd rather install Astro Turf.

After reading these posts, I casually mentioned to my husband, "Huh, apparently San Diego has some pretty good breweries..."

His response was, "Are you saying that our next trip should be to San Diego? Because that's what it sounded like to me."

Alesmith, Green Flash, The Lost Abbey, Port and Stone in that city. That's a lot of world class beer for 1 city.

I guess San Diego is making a name for itself as becoming one of the top microbrewery cities in the nation. I have no clue because I've never drunk a beer, as much as Sora has made suggestions to ease me into such delightful debauchery.

The brewery tours are fun for me, not because of the drinking, but because of what you learn on how to make beer and the different types and styles of beer. Very much like a winery tour, but so much more laid back.

That's something that I really need to take advantage of since I'm only an hour and half away. I've sampled most of the beers from the area but haven't been to any of the breweries.

I'm just going to say that I hate you for having easy access to so many fantastic breweries. If it wasn't in the US I'd consider moving to San Diego just for the beer. You can probably get Anderson Valley, Anchor, Lagunitas, Russian River and others pretty easily too. Smiley: glare

There are some pretty good microbrews starting to pop up around the New Orleans area as well. Abita has been here for a while and is kind of the New Orleans answer to Sam Adams with all of the seasonal brews. Covington Brewhouse also recently opened and is supposed to be pretty good. The best thing about New Orleans, though, is Cooter Brown's. It's a dive bar in the Garden District/University area that has over 300 different varieties of beer, including 120 or so on tap at any given time.

They also offer a "Beers Around the World" adventure where you get a card and once you try 100 different beers you get something free. It used to be you would get 5 free beers, but that was a few years ago so I don't know what it is now. they also serve really good New Orleans dive bar food, like roast beef poboys, fried shrimp poboys, cheese fries, and other stuff.
