Sarah's Beer of the Week 08.01.19

San Diego is one of our greatest beer towns. There are some legendary breweries, and brand new ones and all are making quality brew. Last time I was there I spent time at the old standards like Stone Brewing and Ballast Point. For this trip, I went to a spot called Half Door Brewing. The building is historical and looks like it belongs in New Orleans! Very cool location, and there is a feel of history inside as well. The taps are door knobs. Very cool. I ordered the Half Door Pale Ale. Citra hops, hints of mango and citrus, sounded good to me. I must say, when it arrived, I found it a strange color, so I sipped with trepidation. But thankfully, it was delicious! Sometimes you can't judge a book by its cover. I also sampled the Dad Bod Brown Ale which was also quite yummy. Great name. After the brewery I went to Petco Park for a Padres game. Had to indulge in a few Ballast Point. Great beer scene in SD, can't ever complain about a visit here! My advice always is, order something local, even if it's something your totally unfamiliar with. My experience is almost always positive!
