San Diego Beer Week 2017

San Diego is the craft beer capital of the country. Come visit during San Diego Beer Week, Nov 3-12, and you’ll find out why in the best way: by drinking local breweries’ best local beers.

Get a jump on the fest with Brewcation 2017 at The Dana. There’ll be craft beer paired with local chef’s best dishes. Vote for your favorite to choose the best pairing. Chef Christopher Spayde from our very own Blue Wave Bar & Grill will be paired with local brewery Groundswell Brewing.

Then plan a week full of inspired events. The Guild Fest November 3rd & 4th, starts the week with tastings, food, and entertainment. Friday night’s Guild Fest includes beers you won’t taste anywhere else–they were brewed especially for this event. Plan to linger in the Beer Garden 11/12 to enjoy beer from 28 breweries accompanied by food from 14 chefs.

Fill your vacation with picks from the Beer Week calendar, including chocolate & beer pairings, an ale trail, local brews flavored with fruit from local farms,  a yoga + beer workout, a Guy Fawkes Day party, behind-the-scenes brewery tours, and other great experiences to enhance your enjoyment of great beer. Whether you prefer a dark porter or a pale ale–or want to try both before you decide–you’ll discover lots of great beer and have fun, too.

Island Palms’s location on Shelter Island makes it easy to get to all the activities with a beautiful setting to enjoy when you aren’t exploring the beer scene. Blue Wave Bar and Grill means you’ll have great dining even when you aren’t at a Beer Week food event. Relax and take advantage of amenities including our pools and hot tub, play a game of tennis, or walk or bike our waterfront paths and just admire the beauty of the bay. Make your reservation!
