Dolce Does…The Great Beer Tour!

San Diego has emerged as one of the top craft beer cities in the U.S. over the past decade or so.  Although there are a few notable breweries coming up on their 20th anniversaries, the majority of the city’s craft/micro/nano breweries have opened in the last decade.

The Mr. and I have bonded over our mutual love of alcohol, so we’ve been known to take advantage of the amazing beer scene a time or two.  He sticks to the IPAs, porters and stouts, while I gravitate toward belgians, wheats, lagers, pilsners, and saisons.

While we’ve made it out to a number of breweries, there’s still a lot of territory we’ve yet to cover.  Since I’m pretty good at setting myself up for challenges (noooot so good at the follow through, however..) I thought I’d start one I actually might have a chance at completing.  So, without further ado, I present to you…the Great Dolce Does Beer Tour!

The current list of breweries is sitting at a hefty 82 breweries, and it grows by the day.  So slow and steady will win this race!
