Travel the “Beer Highway” in San Diego

0

As regular readers of our (irregularly updated) blog know, we’re all about the beer scene here in San Diego, California. More specifically, we’re all about the beer scene in Northern San Diego county, particularly along State Route 78 that we like to call “the beer highway”.

Along a 12 mile stretch of road that runs from the Pacific Ocean to the foothills you can hit no fewer than eight great breweries and brew pubs, try just about every type of beer imaginable, and get a look at operations that range from 7 barrels to 10,000 barrels.

Now, thanks to Google’s new embeddable maps feature, I’ve created a map of the brewers along the beer highway complete with addresses, phone numbers and websites. So if you’ve ever wanted to do a little (real or virtual) brew-hopping in San Diego, here’s your chance to do it. Check it out:

The map has all the same functionality as a regular Google map, so you can zoom in and out, click on the little blue pointers to get more info, and even get a satellite view if you want.

Pretty cool, don’t you think? (And a darned good excuse to come to San Diego and do a little sampling.)

So, what do you think ?
