A pristine Monday afternoon during San Diego Beer Week called for an early start at a local downtown brewery, so we swung by Monkey Paw Brewing at 805 16th Street in San Diego.
The brewery is located directly off the 94 West into downtown, the first turn right onto 16th street. There is street parking up and down 16th, be sure to bring change to feed the parking meters, as they are regularly enforced! Once parked, you’ll enter the tasting room on the corner of 16th Street and F Street, where there is plenty of seating both at the bar, and a long picnic-style table that spans the length of the tasting room. There are also smaller size tables along the back wall, and some bar stools by a large front window, where you can watch people walking up and down the street.
The service is friendly, knowledgeable and prompt, which is helpful if you need recommendations of the oodles of styles on the beer menu. Many of Monkey Paw’s house beers feature collaborations with other local breweries, which fosters the legendary camaraderie among San Diego’s brewers and breweries. It is a cause worth celebrating and supporting to continue to keep the local breweries competitive and alive.
During San Diego Beer Week, Monkey Paw is running the following fantastic specials: $4.50 pours of any Monkey Paw beer (house beer that is brewed on-site, 17 MP house beers on draft!), 15% off any Monkey Paw Cheesesteak, 15% off all Monkey Paw merchandise. Get a truffle when you shuffle – while supplies last, get a complimentary Andrea’s Truffle with your first purchase of Andrea’s Truffle 5th Anniversary Ale, Truffle Shuffle. By the way, their Cheesesteak is pretty delicious!
Monkey Paw is located at 805 16th Street, San Diego, CA 92101. Their tasting room hours are Monday-Wednesday 12:00 Noon- 12:00 Midnight, and Thursday-Sunday 12:00 Noon-2:00am.
