Bottoms up: Happy february beeriversary to these brew spots

Culture Brewing Co., Karl Straus Brewing Company and Machete Beer House all celebrate anniversaries in February.

Valentine’s Day is past, but there’s still plenty to love about February. For local beer fans, this month has some notable anniversaries.

Karl Strauss’ 28th: The county’s oldest operating brewery celebrates 28 years with a rich Belgian-style quad (12.9 percent). The 28th is the orchid anniversary, but this beer leans toward another flower — it’s aged in Four Roses bourbon barrels.

Culture’s 4th: 30-plus beers on tap at Saturday’s party at the brewery. General admission, 1 to 6 p.m., is $10; the VIP pass, noon to 6 p.m., $15. Tickets are at; the brewery’s at 111 S. Cedros Ave., Solana Beach.

Machete Beer House’s 2nd: I was going to describe this pub as “arguably” National City’s craft command post, but that’s silly. There’s no argument — this is the place. You’ll find it at 2325 Highland Ave., National City.
