San Diego’s craft beer scene went global
San Diego’s craft beer scene has exploded over the past decade and you’d be hard-pressed to find a weekend where there isn’t one beer festival or another. No beer screams San Diego more than the hop-heavy IPA, a trend Stone Brewing had a hand in starting 20 years ago. So it’s fitting Escondido-based Stone is taking their beer abroad. In 2016, they will open the first independently-operated American craft brewery in, where else, Germany. World domination through hoppy beer is pretty damn San Diego.
