California lays claim as the birthplace of the American craft-beer brewing trend, and, according to the most recent count, the Golden State has more craft breweries—900-plus—than any other state. So it’s no surprise that Californians have high standards when it comes to their beer—and, of course, the food they enjoy with it.
Like everyone, craft brewers have had to adapt to the coronavirus pandemic, changing practices to comply with local and state ordinances. For now, nearly all have canceled brewery tours and indoor dining, but many of them offer outdoor seating and creative take-out and delivery options.
That means you can create a DIY Oktoberfest with special brews and tasty treats. These four establishments, from San Diego to Paso Robles, offer a delicious range of sips and eats to enjoy either on-site (if allowed) or at home.
