While new breweries countywide scramble for a piece of San Diego's craft beer pie, Pacific Beach AleHouse is still chilling by the beach, making the handcrafted brews that helped start the trend.
Throwing back a frosty pint(s) inside AleHouse's lodge-like surroundings makes watching the boardwalk action a heavenly juxtaposition. By day, lunch on the patio provides a sea-level view of the PB bustle, and climbing the stairs in flip-flops gives way to panoramic ocean views. At night, the downstairs fire pit heats up the scene, while twinkling starts and the sound of crashing waves enhance the alfresco dining experience on the sky deck.
For savory grass-fed burgers, BBQ grilled salmon and Lobster Mac & Cheese - all served up with a sandy spirit and paired with the latest offerings from an on-site microbrewery - come back to PB AleHouse.
