Alpine Beer Company Pub
The family-run Alpine Beer Company Pub takes customer experience seriously, meaning meats are smoked daily with handpicked hickory and mesquite wood, fish is served fresh, and dressings and sauces are made from scratch. Pair house-made brews with spinach artichoke dip, shrimp ceviche, smoked grilled cheese, or opt for a pulled pork or beef brisket sandwich. The space is dog-friendly and has an expansive patio with an outdoor bar.
San Diego is sprawling, and as tempting as it is for a casual beer fan to not venture past the breweries in the more central locations of the city, sometimes you need to make a hike, namely to Alpine Beer Company. If you're the type to put stock in beer rankings (and really, why wouldn't you?), here's where we tell you that BeerAdvocate lists the brewery’s Keene Idea Double IPA as one of the 120 best beers in the world.
