Local San Diego Beer News

There was good news and bad news in San Diego beer this week.  Two posts from San Diego Beer Blog are worth reading.   The bad news is that Firehouse Brewing Co. has closed shop.  Firehouse has been around for a number of years, but I've probably had two or three of its beers since it opened, all the pale ale.  I am guessing I am not alone, as Firehouse never seemed to court the craft beer market.  The Beer Rover's Traveling Correspondent enjoyed Firehouse's patio and cheap beers.  

The second post states that Mission Brewing's new East Village (i.e. near Petco Park) brewery and tasting room are now open.  The tasting room is apparently not fully operational but is serving beer before, during and after Padre games.  Mission Brewing's website does not detail too much on the opening.  I need an excuse to visit this tasting room.
