America's Best Beer Cities
No. 7 San Diego
The sunny city has been steadily rising in the ranks as its craft beer scene rapidly expands. For years, beer pilgrims have visited Escondido, east of the city, to experience Stone Brewing, but a new branch of Stone is now opening in waterfront Point Loma, where you can find pairing dinners, beer-friendly bocce, and outdoor movies. Downtown’s Hotel Solamar, meanwhile, is launching a Friday Craft Beer Hour for sampling local brews from Mission Brewery, The Lost Abbey, and others. Good call: San Diego also ranks in the top 10 for its singles scene, happy hours, and good-looking locals.
