San Diego Strong Ale Festival

We had a great day yesterday at the 11th Annual San Diego Strong Ale Festival up at Port Carlsbad. They had a wide variety of Double IPAs, Belgians, and high octane stouts and porters.

Without exception, everything I tried was fantastic, but highlights were Alesmith Yulemith and the Oak Aged Yeti Imperial Stout from Great Divide.

We also stopped in next door at Pizza Port to consume some food and some lower alcohol beverages (Poor Man's and Duet) by the xmas tree.


  1. How were the crowds and at what time did you go? Last year, people were dropping glasses and stepping around on broken glass. Not to mention a few other downsides - was this year better on non-beer-related aspects?

  2. We were there from about 12:30 until 5:30. It definitely got more rowdy toward the end of our stay, but nothing out of control.
