San Diego’s Strangest Brews

Three weird beers that will turn heads

As you already know, San Diego is home to one of the country’s most exciting craft beer scenes. But if you’re looking for something really unexpected, the three following strange brews will have you buzzing long after the first sip.

Indra Kunindra from Ballast Brewing Company

This stout looks to India for its robust flavor profile. While ingredients like coconut, kaffir lime leaf, and cumin are unusual on their own, it’s the addition of Madras curry that sends this over the top. Each sip delivers heat, tang, and loads of heady spice.

Peanut Butter Cup Porter from Karl Strauss Brewing Company

While most porters can feel a bit heavy after one pint, this one lightens things up with the help of notes of creamy peanut butter and dark chocolate – proving that you can have your dessert, and drink it, too.

Bacon and Eggs Porter from Pizza Port Brewing Company

Coffee fans will flip for this dark beer packed with the intense flavor of coffee beans, courtesy of local roaster Bird Rock Coffee. Turn to this an unexpected pick-me-up at the end of a long day.
