I'm going to be in SoCal in February, heading from San Diego up to Orange, and I'm looking for some places to visit. I'm flying into SD and then driving up to Encinitas, so I'll actually be pretty close to Stone Brewery and I plan to check that out Monday night. Then I have some meetings Tuesday and will be in Orange/Santa Ana that evening. It's a quick hitter, but I was hoping for some recommendations. I see that Karl Strauss is near my hotel, so that's an option. Newport Beach Brewing Co. is nearby as well. Recommendations are more than welcome though.
