San Diego Beer and Wine Tours Loves Oktoberfest!

We've said this before, again and again, but San Diego's best and most underrated season really is autumn. It's when the leaves on the trees change color, the low sun makes the water in the harbor look extra sparkly, and all the harvest activities are happening!

One of our absolute favorite autumn events is Oktoberfest. This Bavarian beer festival was first held to celebrate the wedding of Crown Prince Ludwig and Princess Therese in 1810, and quickly became a tradition.

But you don't have to make a pilgrimage to Bavaria to enjoy Oktoberfest. San Diego, with its glorious craft beer scene, has taken the traditional Oktoberfest and given it a unique regional flair. Best of all, you can find them all over the county, from La Mesa in the east to Encinitas in the northwest, each chock-full of all the best beer San Diego has to offer — and believe us when we say that is beer well worth a taste, especially all the wonderfully crisp pumpkin- and apple-laced brews. 

Want to come sample the best brews of San Diego like a true Bavarian? Come learn about San Diego's beer scene with us. We're offering a 10 percent discount on ALL tours throughout the month of Oktober — er, October. 

Happy tasting!
