SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - Glasses up, San Diego. It's time to celebrate one of the region's most important industries.
From Nov. 3 to 12, San Diego Beer Week will celebrate the region's ever-popular beer scene and culture throughout the county with ten days worth of events on tap.
For those thinking the week is just another round of beer events, consider the impact beer has on San Diego. According to the San Diego Brewer's Guild, the region is home to more than 130 craft breweries. That industry generated an estimated $851 million in 2015 and employed 4,512 workers, according to the San Diego Regional Economic Development Corporation.
So, yeah, it's a pretty big deal.
The week kicks off at Port Pavilion on Broadway Pier with the 15th Annual Guild Fest, featuring more than 60 of the region's breweries.
Excited? You're not alone. Here's a look at some of the events happening across the county for San Diego Beer Week.
