San Diego, the Craft Beer Capital of America, will celebrate the 10th anniversary of San Diego Beer Week (SDBW) November 2-11.

Taking place throughout San Diego County at participating breweries, bars, restaurants and more, SDBW showcases beers from more than 130 local craft breweries. This year the festivities are expanding with the addition of breweries from neighboring Tijuana and Baja, Mexico, a celebration of the Cali-Baja culture that makes San Diego a unique destination. Groups can also enjoy San Diego’s beer scene year-round. There’s a new SD Beer mobile app (available for iOS and Android) that makes all the info thirsty visitors are seeking just a tap and a swipe away. Companies like Brew Hop, Brewery Tours of San Diego and San Diego Beer, Wine & Spirits Tour offer customized private tours, such as a Sailing and Brewery Tasting Tour and a Beer Train Trolley Tour. 

California is one of the most abundant agricultural regions in the world, but a startling number of residents aren’t always sure where their next meal will come from. According to Feeding America, the nation’s largest network of food banks, one in eight Californians struggles with hunger. The situation is especially startling for children; one in five is food insecure.

Hunger is not a supply problem, it’s a logistics challenge. And the meetings and events industry is full of logistics-minded people who are in a position to chip away at it.

 

There’s gold—and a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed meeting center—in them thar hills.

 

A new gem in the central coast.
