A glimpse of a past Guild Fest.

We love keeping you in the loop on what’s brewing in our city — soon, it’s all about San Diego Beer Week, the 14th annual celebration of our local craft suds scene.

The 10-day festivity runs from Fri., Nov. 4-Sun., Nov. 13, with special events and deals across participating breweries + restaurants. The grandest is the 2022 Guild Fest, which returns on Sat., Nov. 5, for the first time since 2019. Here’s what’s on tap.

Introducing this year’s Capital of Craft IPA collab.

🎉 Guild Fest

Produced by the San Diego Brewers Guild (SDBG) to kick-off Beer Week, the 21+ outdoor shindig goes down from 1-4 p.m. at Surf Sports Park in Del Mar. General admission attendees can sample sips from 60+ local craft breweries while enjoying live music, lawn games, and food trucks.

Pro tips:

  • For an extra $15, VIP admission gets you into the festival an hour earlier and includes specialty pours.
  • If beer isn’t your thing, sip from kombucha brands + wineries at fest.
  • Parking is available onsite for $12.
  • Designated Driver tickets will be sold at the door for $20, which include festival access sans the suds.
  • Peep the beer list ahead of the fest to plot your tasting priorities.
