San Diego Beer Week is….Now!

San Diego is in the throes of good beer as breweries, bars, restaurants, and hotels across the county are participating in the first-ever San Diego Beer Week November 6-15, 2009. 

“We already have more than 200 beer events planned throughout the county,” says Colby Chandler, San Diego Brewers Guild president.  Events run the gamut from beer dinners, cask nights, barrel aged tastings, to learn-to-brew classes and beer education seminars.  “We really encouraged our local breweries to think outside the box and create engaging and interesting events,” says Colby. 

Chef Celebration of San Diego Beers will wrap up the Beer Week festivities at the Irwin Jacob Hall on Sunday, November 15, 2009.  The event is hosted by two non-profit groups, the San Diego Brewers Guild and Chef Celebration.  The event will feature sixteen local chefs pairing food with eight San Diego breweries.
