San Diego Craft Beer Festival at Del Mar Race Track

The last weekend of Del Mar racing is coming up! Before the season is finished, my family and I wanted to check it out.

The history and beauty of the racetrack is enough to merit a ticket purchase (only $10 for clubhouse seats), but there are loads of events and music after the racing is finished for the day!

This past Saturday featured San Diego Craft Beer Festival! Although it was very hot, it was nice to try a few local beers. All of the favorites were there, such as Ballast Point, Stone, and Coronado Brewing Company, but there were also some newer brewers, such as my new fave, Mother Earth

 There were so many different tastes that it was overwhelming, but one that stood out was the beer created specifically for the event -- Double Jockey IPABallast Point Brewery and top jockey from the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club Aaron Gryder teamed up earlier this month to concoct a special hoppy batch inspired by the place where the turf meets the surf.

There were also some national brands, such as Blue Moon, which I love with an orange slice during the summer months. 

There was even cornhole set up for relaxing with your beer!

This weekend is the final for Del Mar racing. I highly recommend enjoying an afternoon of racing and soaking up that wonderful SoCal atmosphere!
