From there, we walked back to the hotel where our car was and headed to the north side of the city. We had a few stops planned, but figured that we would ask around as we went. Jen was excited because we were driving by Miramar again, which is pretty cool. Sometimes you can see the pilots practicing and the sound of the jets as they pass is crazy!
We started at Ballast Point Brewery. They had way more on tap than we were expecting, but lots of great beers. It was a simple tap room, with a good size bar and servers who knew their beer. They also had brewery tours for the "beer bus" people. We then went to AleSmith, which is a newer brewery. They had a smaller taproom, but it had a more sophisticated feel. We tried a few beers there, said hello to the beautiful huskies that were enjoying the afternoon with their owners and moved on.

The last stop was Wet n' Reckless Brewing, another brand new, brewer run place. It had the same style atmosphere as Hess, but a few more beers to try. There were a lot of beer fanatics there checking this place out...and it was worth the stop! We also met some people who are going to the Stone Sour Beer Fest, which is the reason we drove all the way down to San Diego. So we chatted a few people up and then decided to head back to the hotel and relax a little bit...we'd had A LOT of beer and needing something to eat.

All in all, a very productive day and I like San Diego even more now! Check it out sometime...great place.
