Karl Strauss Brewery & Restaurant
1157 Columbia St (at W B St)
San Diego, CA 92101
Karl Strauss Brewing Company’s Little Italy location offers the craft beer giant’s signature brews, like the Wreck Alley Imperial Stout, made with darkly kilned malts, cocoa nibs, and Ethiopian coffee beans, and the Red Trolley Ale with caramelized malts, hops, and hints of raisins and currants. Complement your boozy beverage with some equally beer-y bar bites: Karl Strauss food favorites include The Big Beer Burger, basted with Columbia Street Amber and topped with Red Trolley Ale onions, IPA mushrooms, beer-brined bacon, Gruyere, tomato, and lettuce. Or, opt for earthy truffle fries, duck fat pretzel bites, beer-braised smoked pork belly, or the gooey crowd-favorite mac and cheese.
