Are you ready for National Beer Day? These local restaurants and breweries are! Check out what they have to offer for this brew-tiful occasion.

Tacos and beer? Yes, please. The Taco Stand is celebrating this iconic pairing by offering $2 beers with every food purchase on National Beer Day. Gorge on a giant California Burrito, or treat yourself to one of their new secret menu items, including Al Pastor Volcan – a crispy tostada topped with melted cheese, al pastor, guacamole, white onions, cilantro, pineapple and cilantro salsa – and Carne Asada Volcan – a tostada with melted cheese, carne asada, guacamole, white onions, cilantro and mild salsa.

There’s a Beer Day deal brewing at Pacific Beach AleHouse, where folks can get their fill of $5 AleHouse drafts all day to pair with the location’s stunning views and toothsome bites. Try their Down to Hop West Coast IPA (7% ABV), teeming with aromas and flavors of sweet tangerine and mango, or their Brews Lee Hoppy Lager (4.6% ABV), boasting a light and crisp flavor profile with lime, lemon and slight herbal flavors from a Motueka dry hop.

It’s baseball season, which means AleSmith Brewing Company is knocking it out of the park with their coveted, seasonal brew, Hazy .394, which has been expertly honed by the AleSmith team to encompass everything beer-drinkers love about a San Diego-style pale ale. This rendition is the hazy cousin of their original .394 – a collaboration with Hall-of-Famer Tony Gwynn that first launched in 2014 and has since won the hearts of craft beer lovers in both Padre territory and nationwide.

Novo Brazil Brewing has officially added a new limited brew to the  brewery’s Hazy Series, just in time for National Beer Day! Behold Sabro Haze, a Hazy IPA packed with Sabro hops and clocking in at 7% ABV. Tangerine, stone fruit and vanilla cream flirt with herbal and woody cedar to yield a well-balanced beer that’s smooth, with distinct tropical notes that blend seamlessly with creamy characteristics. This hoppy creation is available until May on-tap, as well as in four-packs of 16-oz cans at select retailers.
