From PB I Ubered over to Ocean Beach and got dropped off at Azucar a great little Cuban Coffee shop for a Coconut cookie and a Cortado.
Before hitting the beach I popped into the South Beach Bar and Grill for a local Craft Beer and 2 rather large Thursday Taco Fish Tacos. Then hit the water and baked on the sand.
When I had enough fun in the sun I Headed to my first stop on my first Pub Crawl in Ocean Beach, the OB Brewery where my curvy tattooed and pink haired bartendess proudly pointed out they brew on site. Their Dunkelweizen was fantastic.
Next up I hit Kilowatt for a flight of their beers. Loved their Cucumber Gose so much I took a Crowler of it to go. The bartender shared the history of most of the Art in the bar, the works of Clint Cary…quite a local character…google him.
At my next stops Helms I had a flight of three of their brews while discussing how bad the water is in Cali, thus why their Pizza, Bagels and Heroes are generally lacking (being PC right outside of PB in the OB).
After pints and flights at three Breweries it was time to eat and I was luckily able to get a seat at packed on a Thursday night The Joint. I started with their spicy wakame salad and then from their hand-roll menu a Spicy Scallop, Salmon and Bacon roll(amazing!) and their namesake the Joint…with as if I needed it a local Gose beer.
On Saturday after an Acai bowl at Rum Jungle and a couple of hours at PB beach I decided to head back to Ocean Beach. I revved up at OB culture coffee for a perfect Cortado and then headed to Pizza Port for lunch where I enjoyed their loaded with shrimp and clams Seafood pizza with their brewed on site Hefeweizen. Fully sated I walked up the block for some sand and surf.
After 6pm it was time to hit some more Brewery’s starting with a flight at Culture Brewing.Then across the street to Belching Beaver for flight of their brews, the Blonde PBJ being the stand out…and yes you can taste peanut butter.
Hungry I decided to stick with The Joint since I enjoyed it so much and was able to snag a seat at the bar again. Ordered up some of their yummy eclectic Sushi rolls. Stuffed and buzzed, I Ubered back to PB.
