Anyone check out Burgeon in Little Italy yet?
Went yesterday – nice little spot. I don’t end up in Little Italy very often but I’ll definitely add it to the rotation when I do make it down there (they had more than a few non-hazies!). Got to talk with stawn for a bit, and Nunes was also working and mentioned he’s enjoyed being able to come up with beer-food pairings. I don’t know if this was particular to yesterday, but the wind was whipping up some serious vortexes in the front sidewalk/patio area (I was sitting inside though).

Fresh keg of 2021 BAVSS tapped at Alesmith. They kicked the current when I asked for a couple pours but the beertender brought out a fresh keg.

Fuuuuuuuuuuuuck, it's as close to 2014 as one can get.

Hi. I'm visiting my brother for a couple days in El Cajón. He doesn't drink beer. Flying into SD obviously. Any locals want to tell me where I can stock up on decent, fresh, non-hazy, hoppy beer on the way to this desert town I know nothing about?

Whats your definition of "on the way" and where in El Cajon? The city is kinda expansive and any recs could be 30+ mins away.

That being said, most liquor stores you'll stop at will have a decent selection of local hoppy beers.

Try El Cajon Wine & Spirits, which usually carries Burning Beard, North Park, and other goodies.

Gotcha, thanks guys. Any particular local SD breweries not on my radar churning out the kinda goodness I can expect from my local go-to's: Altamont, GhostTown, Faction? I've been out of the hunt for years and haven't been down there since hitting Alpine, Societe, etc back in 2014 or so.
