What are the best breweries in the area?

Can anyone tell me what the best breweries are in the area? I'll have a car when I'm down there, so they don't have to be right in San Diego proper, although that's where I'm staying.  And don't worry -- will always have a DD!

Oh man, loaded question! There are well over 80 breweries/brew pubs in San Diego. It's practically a Mecca for good craft beer. You really don't necessarily need to visit the breweries themselves; tasting rooms and/or bars often give you a chance to try a lot of different ones. Nevertheless, here are a few of my favorite places to visit:

I really could go on for a while about this, but is a great resource for more San Diego beer info. Check out their directory for a list of even more places.

Hope that helps!

Ballast Point Brewing Company -- can't say enough about Calico Amber Ale.  

Also, never been to the brewpub, but I love most of what Lagunitas Brewing Company makes. They're up north in Petaluma.  Just putting that out there.
