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. 

San Diego rocks! And, beginning on Feb. 3, 2023, the coastal city will rock more than ever before. That’s when THE SOUND, a new state-of-the-art concert venue, will make its debut with an opening performance by 8-time Grammy winner Ziggy Marley. Located at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, and operated by Solana Beach-based Belly Up Entertainment, THE SOUND adds an exciting mid-sized venue to San Diego’s performance scene and for private events.
