Come and explore North County's top breweries as we go on an exciting brew cruise! Join us as we travel on our luxury motor coach and go brew tasting and chat with fellow brewers about the basics of brew tactics.
We will start our journey at your departure point of choice and continue up the Interstate 15 to our first brewery which is Stone. Stone Brewery is known for the aggressive Arrogant Bastard Ale, although the brewery considers Stone Pale Ale and Stone IPA to be its flagship beer. Most of Stone's beers are characteristic of West Coast craft brews; that is to say, most beers have a traditionally 'hoppy' flavor. Stone beers are bottled in 22oz bottles, 12oz six packs, and occasionally 3L bottles.
Stone also sells growler jugs that you can have filled fresh off the tap with any of their year 'round releases to take home. Several times each month Stone offers "Special Growler Fills" where they put on tap their Stone Special Releases or the latest inspired creation from their brewing team.
Afterwards we drive to Green Flash Brewery which serves up local and tasty IPA beer worth tasting. Tucked away among several warehouses, we'll find the rich malty and hoppy brew of West Coast IPA. Green Flash Brewing Co, located in Vista, is an award-winning brewer of fine, hand-crafted ales, and specializes in brewing assertive and distinctive beers such as their West Coast I.P.A.: an award-winning beer whose wide acceptance has helped define a category. Green Flash brews nine styles of beer regularly, on draught and in bottles.
We end our journey by visiting Lost Abbey/Port Brewing Company. They produce a line of award-winning American ales and the groundbreaking Lost Abbey family of Belgian-inspired beers. Craft brewed under the direction of co-founder and World Champion brewer Tomme Arthur, five beers are issued under the Lost Abbey label year-round: Avant Garde, Lost and Found, Red Barn, Devotion and Judgment Day. Additionally, a number of seasonal and specialty releases are offered at various times throughout the year. As many of these are blended and aged for up to 18 months in French Oak, Brandy and Bourbon barrels, Lost Abbey beers are universally recognized for their complexity, unique flavors, and bold, boundary-pushing styles.
