The San Diego sun is shining just right, and nothing can top this summer feelin’ like a nice cold beer. Head down to these booming local brew houses to get a taste of these limited time brew offers.

The magic is in the name at Beerfish, San Diego’s top destination for fish and, of course, beer. There are several dozen rotating beers available at all times, but if you can’t choose on your own, then you can’t go wrong with their most popular offering- the Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. This brew has a deep amber color with a slightly spicy flavor, perfect to pair with the restaurant’s broad seafood menu. Stop in on a Thursday for their weekly Keep the Pint Night special and enjoy $4 refills, featuring a different brewery each week.

No trip to Woodstock’s Pizza is the same if you are seeking craft beer. The in-house cicerone curates the rotating beer menu on a weekly basis, making sure that all taste buds are satisfied. From lagers, to IPAS and everything in between- the brews are changed often and paired perfectly for a great pizza experience. Stop in to the SDSU location on Wednesdays to enjoy a fun round of bingo and half-priced pints and pitchers.

Pacific Beach Alehouse boasts brews straight from the keg as a world class Southern California brewery. Get a flavorful taste of their own PB Alehouse Beer of the Rising Sun. This beer is crisp and dry with a hint of tangy lemon to separate it from anything else you try. ‘Hoppy Hour’ is a great excuse to enjoy their house beers for just $3, while soaking in the view from their rooftop deck.

There’s always something new to try at Barrel Republic. The bar boasts an impressive rotating arsenal of beers that are perfect for summer. Take a ride to their Pacific Beach location to get a taste of the Blackberry IPA, brewed with fresh blackberries by Refuge Brewery. This beer is guaranteed to leave you refreshed and ready for the sun. Live in the area and need another excuse to stop in? On Sundays, locals enjoy 20% off food and wine.

Already renowned for their top of the line succulent barbecue, Wood Ranch is also a prime destination for some great summer ale. Nothing washes down delicious barbecue like some brews, and the Mike Hess ‘Into the Sunset’ is perfect for exactly that. This blood orange IPA is refreshing and crisp with a hint of citrus that complements the savory food.

Settle into the summer vibes with these seasonal brews, and you better hurry because they won’t be waiting long!
