Had a 9 hour day on the road from Morro Bay to San With stops at Santa Monica, Oceanside and La Jolla.
There were numerous delays on the I5 due to crashes which allowed me down but was glad to make it to SD. I already love this place.
Went to the Hopping Pig for dinner. 21 beers and pork-based meals. I had that most traditional of Southern Californian dish, Bangers and Mash
Had 3 beers there, Garage Golden Munich Lager, Alpine Duet IPA and Ironfire Six Killer Stout. The 1st 2 were good the stout only okay but I'm not really a coffee kinda guy and this was brewed with hazelnut coffee.
Then a quick stop by the liquor store and a bottle of Pliny the Elder.
As the guy there said to me "It was amazing 10 years ago but now everyone brews something like it".
I'd have to agree. Feels like I've had it many times before. Good but nothing out of this world.
Also got a six pack of Coronado Brewing Co Seacoast Pilsner which I'm yet to try.
All in all a good day.
