Alluring beaches, gorgeous weather and an exploding craft beer scene all make us wonder why we haven’t already picked up and headed to the coast. The release of the book San Diegos’s Top Brewers isn’t helping with that problem at all. Author Bruce Glassman dives into the formidable world of San Diego breweries in this engaging read that profiles every craft brewery in town. The book features heavy-hitters like Stone and Karl Strauss as well as smaller operations like Iron Fist and Lightning. Stunning photography of beer-inspired dishes like the sumptuous Breakwater Stout Rip Tips are also prominently featured—we dare you not to lick the pages. Glassman also packed in helpful tidbits like a craft beer lover’s calendar and a list of great bottle shops that make this required reading for the upcoming San Diego Beer Week that starts today.
