Beer At The San Diego Zoo
It's been maybe two years or more since I last visited the San Diego Zoo. I went yesterday and was impressed with the availability of craft beer. I knew the upscale restaurant Albert's served good beer, but I noticed several kiosks and small eateries around the zoo that offer craft beer, and you're even allowed to walk around the zoo with beer. I am guessing this is relatively new, because I don't remember beer stands from my previous zoo excursions. I saw local craft brewers Karl Strauss, Stone Brewing and Ballast Point represented (and a few non-local big boys). It's great having hometown brewers prominently selling their beer at one of San Diego's largest tourist attractions.
