|THE RITUAL TAVERN|
RAINY NIGHT TOUR DE FUN—It's raining in San Diego. Crowds will be down, plus a pal or favorite relative just rolled into town unannounced and wants you to take her on a tour of North Park’s best craft beer centric places. Before you let her or him guess at the best step up to the plate and go with the following. And, remember the dry umbrellas probably were left behind weeks ago.
This isn’t meant to be a "best of" the planet bar hop. All are winners here. It is what it is, a guide to newbies coming into North Park, who take craft beer suggestions politely.
There are popular Bud Light bars aplenty in North Park, but if they’re not big on craft beer then they don’t make this list. Like I said for a quick craft beer tour you won’t go wrong with the following:
Craft Beer Baedeker (w/food too)
|NORTH PARK'S OWN|
Toronado, 4026 30th Street.
Why: 56 rotating, quality, drafts and a cask or two on the beer engines
The Linkery, 3794 30th Street
Why: Big craft beer selection and an award winning menu that’s unlike any in West.
|EL TAKE IT EASY|
El Take It Easy, 3926 30th Street

Tiger!Tiger! Tavern, 3025 El Cajon Blvd.
Why: Already listed on America’s 100 Best Beer Bars.
|TIGER TIGER TAVERN|
Ritual Tavern, 4095 30th Street
Why: Quaint tavern—old style—they know food and craft beer. Nice place to start a date night.
Live Wire Bar, 2103 El Cajon Blvd.
Why: Because it’s here. One of the classic saloons of all time in San Diego. If you want scenery go to the Waterfront Bar, downtown.

Why: Neighborhood. Food and Craft Beer share the spotlight.
