Prost to all! Oktoberfest is in full swing and although we might not be in Germany where the festival was created, it seems as though Americans have joined in on all the celebrations the festival has to offer. California seems to be one of the major states that celebrates Oktoberfest, with festivities in over 45 different cities. Celebrate Oktoberfest with San Diego Beer, Wine and Spirits Tours aboard the Beer Train Trolley Tour! The Beer Train Trolley Tour visits four breweries and boasts about 16 different tasters of local, craft beer. A light lunch and beer appreciation presentation are included in this tasty adventure!

September means… FOOTBALL IS BACK! Whether it’s college or NFL, a sports bar or a spot on the couch with your friends, chances are you’re reaching for a cold one this weekend. To give your taste buds a kick, we recommend pairing your favorite game day snacks with beer that can keep up with flavors. – Chili is a football favorite for those chilly weekends and best paired with rich and smoky beers. You can never go wrong pairing spice with stouts. Have you tried Belching Beaver’s Peanut Butter Milk Stout? – Wings are a football tradition no matter what climate you’re in, and you can pair just about any lager with them. A refreshing, light beer will cool down the spice and cleanse your palate for more taste! We suggest trying out Mission Brewery’s Blonde, a kolsch-style ale with…

Happy Father’s Day! We love our dads! But we think that when it comes to holidays, they don’t get a fair shake. After all, we just had Mother’s Day and all the stress that goes into trying to find the perfect gift for the moms in our life, and now here comes Father’s Day, less than two months later! What’s an offspring to do? Well, around here, we’re all about “fun” equality. We thought that you should bring the moms in your life on our tours for Mother’s Day, and now, we think that the best thing to do with the dads in your life this Father’s Day is, of course, bring them on one of our tours. You could just take them to dinner. But that’s so low key! Why not do something different and bring them on our…

Green beer is okay, but “going green” on one of our train tours is much better! We have barely recovered from Valentine’s Day, but St. Patrick’s Day is nearly upon us. As we adore Ireland with every fiber of our being (that’s where our lovely Shira Bliss is from!) we are happy to share some insider love with you. Now, you could celebrate the old-fashioned way – by pinching people and drinking green beer until you can’t look at anything green for the next month – but why go that route? Let’s Get Shamrocked! Here are our suggestions. Don’t let its reputation fool you. Ireland is not just a country of craic and Guinness. It is also a land of epicures and microbreweries, which in recent years have started springing up like mushrooms after a rain. Unfortunately, not many Irish…

The holidays have barreled down on us like a freight train and suddenly, it’s almost 2018. Are you prepared for the parties and gifts? How about dinners with family and friends? Prepared or not, there’s very little that can’t be improved with the proper application of delicious wine and beer, so here are some of our suggestions to help you add to your holiday spirit. Enjoy! First of all – what do your winter holiday plans entail? If you’re looking for last-minute gifts, the following beers are timely and delicious. If you don’t celebrate (or are just boycotting the holidays this year) we think that the best thing you can do is treat yourself, whether it’s celebratory or “just because.” The best way to do that, in our opinion, is to sample some of the many legendary San Diego beers…
