Best Hotel Near San Diego Breweries
San Diego is one of the best places in the world to be a beer lover. That’s a strong claim, but it comes firmly backed up: San Diego County boasts more craft breweries—better than 100—than any other part of the United States, and among them are some of the most lauded on the planet.
With Autograph Collection accommodations at Hotel Republic in Downtown San Diego, you’re wonderfully positioned to explore this great big world of top-grade Southern Californian craft beer.
We’re literally within shouting distance of the Downtown location of Karl Strauss Brewing Co. (1157 Columbia St.), one of several San Diego breweries—Stone and Green Flash also included—which rank among the biggest craft beermakers in the country. Karl Strauss is celebrating its 29th year in business in 2018, and its Anniversary Ale—available in the Downtown tap room—is a delectable barrel-aged Belgian-style Saison.
