The beer is interesting, the atmosphere is laid-back, and the patio was lovely and breezy even on a hot day.

From Our Editors

Lightning Brewery head brewer Jim Crute first developed an interest in beer where many people do: in college. But as a student of biochemistry, he viewed beer through a different lens than many others his age. He began brewing his own batches in 1982 and maintained it as a hobby until 2005, when San Diego's burgeoning craft-beer movement exploded. An opportunity too tempting to pass up, Lightning Brewery was born.

Today, Jim and his team fuse science with premium ingredients from Europe, England, and the U.S. to churn out their award-winning beers. Lightning beers are now on tap in hundreds of local restaurants and stores, and a few have even garnered national acclaim, including the popular Thunderweizen Ale:

Thunderweizen Ale (ABV: 5.8%)

  • First released: September 2006
  • Food pairings: lighter fare, such as clams, mussels, and salads
  • Awards: It won gold two years in a row at the California State Fair Commercial Craft Beer Competition with strong marks for being the best hefeweizen brewed in California
  • Press: The New York Times included it on its list of 10 featured Hefeweizens in the United States in 2012
