13th Annual SD Beer Week

San Diego County, California, has been called “the Craft Beer Capital of America”.  San Diego County is home to over 150 craft breweries – which is the most of any county in the United States.

So when San Diego does BEER WEEK… we go all out!

We know you have a ton of beer to choose from (predominantly IPAs) but we hope you make some time to sip on sours with your friends at California Wild Ales.

We are excited to be hosting SDBW at both our Sorrento Valley and Ocean Beach locations!

Join us November 5-14 as we pack our taps with tons of new beers over the 9 days of SD Beer Week.
