Craft Beer

San Diego brews with a view

333 Pacific
333 Pacific in Oceanside

Go: Suffering from a bad case of June gloom? Shake it off at pierside diners where you can quaff a craft brew while drinking in Pacific vistas.

Way down below: Anchoring the Imperial Beach pier’s far end, The Tin Fish is the southwestern-most spot on the mainland where you can enjoy a $7 16-ounce schooner of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.

910 Seacoast Dr., Imperial Beach, 619.628.8414,

Glow: Watch the sun set from Seaport Village’s San Diego Pier Café while savoring a Stone IPA. A 12-ounce pour runs $6.

885 W. Harbor Dr., Seaport Village, 619.239.3968,

So?: Yes, we realize Caroline’s Seaside Café isn’t on Scripps Pier. Still, it offers superb views of that landmark and its selection of canned beers — Maui Bikini Blonde for $7! — is sweet.

8610 Kennel Way, La Jolla, 858.202.0569,

Pro: A stone’s throw from the Oceanside Pier, 333 Pacific is an art deco dining and drinking destination. Order Modern Times’ amber ale, Blazing World, $8 a pint, and watch the tide roll in. Or out. We’re not fussy, except about beer.

333 N. Pacific St., Oceanside, 760.433.3333,
