JULY 2017

July 23, 2017 – We live in San Diego, the capitol of craft breweries! We decided it’s time to start trying them out, so our first stop was The Second Chance Beer Company. For me, Stone beer will always have my heart, so that’s what I tend to compare all beers too. My favorite at Second Chance was the Clever Hoppy Name, an extra pale ale. The best part of this Brewery was the game room area. I had a blast sipping good beer and playing darts with my love. We will definitely visit here again!
