San Diego brews with a view
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, thetinfishrestaurants.com
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, piercafe.com
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.

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.
