Building off the success of the past two San Diego Beer Weeks, the San Diego Brewers Guild is preparing for San Diego Beer Week 2013 (SDBW), November 1-10. San Diego Beer Week is a nine-day celebration inspiring people to drink local, craft beer and promoting San Diego’s thriving brewing culture with multiple events happening across the county.
San Diego is home to more 50 breweries and has gained an international reputation for brewing award-winning beers. The city's breweries recently brought home more medals at the 2010 World Beer Cup than the traditional beer countries of England, Germany, and Belgium combined and won 20 medals at the 2011 Great American Beer Festival. With the popularity of craft beer on the rise, San Diego is poised to be the capital of craft beer tourism in the United States.
