Go: Stone Brewing Tap Room, East Village
Stone’s throw: Just a soft toss from Petco’s Park at the Park, this tap room is a wallet-friendly alternative to ballpark brews. True, you’ll find cheaper pints in the Gaslamp’s diviest bars — looking at you, Tivoli! But at $7.50 to $9 per pint, Stone is a bargain next to Petco, where last season craft beers commanded $14.50.
Know: The tap room is open daily, afternoons and evenings until 9 p.m. (10 p.m. on weekends).
Cheapo: Dining choices, while limited, are also cheaper than inside Petco. The side salad is $3.50; flatbreads are $8 and $9; the $10 cheese board is most expensive item.
