San Diego isn't known as a cradle of America's craft brew scene for anything. For those days when you need a break from imbibing, I've chosen a few booze-less options
The downtown flagship of craft beer favorite Karl Strauss houses an onsite beer brewing and a full service restaurant. Beer flights start at just $5 and beer is available to go in glass growlers
The plain Jane "Coffee Shop" sign is deceptive as you won't find just a regular old cup of Joe at this Sorrento Valley spot. Beans are roasted in house and espresso drinks rank up their with the best of San Diego
You'll want to get a designated driver to try all if the beers on Pizza Port's list. You can choose from beers brewed on site, other PP locations & create your own flight. My pie of choice is the Laguna!
Fun independent smoothie shop serving up acai bowls and fruit smoothies. My pick is the Super Berry!
Hillcrest is the proud home of the world's first brew pub geared to an LGBT clientele. HBC serves their own beers with playful names such as Crotch Rocket and Banana Hammock, alongside other local beers, without a Coors or Bud in sight
This compact beer bar has one of the best views in San Diego on the pier at Shelter Island. Get the Baja dog and a beer from a rotating list of local breweries.
A trendy ramen and craft beer bar awaits in the heart of Little Italy. The $10 ramen is a steal and the open air seating is perfect for people watching
Incredible selection of craft beers & artisan sodas in North Park. Cans and bottles are available for individual sale, with a nice variety of local & even craft Mexican beers.
Wang's is a fun modern Asian restaurant with excellent happy hour specials. Try the Ballast Point Sculpin IPA for only $4 at the bar
