Bottlecraft: Little Italy Retail Store by Day, Bar by Night

bottlecraft-little-italyBottlecraft is the new go-to spot among San Diego beer enthusiasts.

When you’re the new kid on the block in a swanky arts district, it’s wise to fit in. That’s why Bottlecraft, a new craft beer store and tasting room, designed itself to look like an edgy urban art gallery, with minimalist décor and industrial accents. The place feels like a retail store by day, bar by night; with more than 500 local and international bottles in stock, including several hard-to-find cult brews, it’s become the go-to spot among local beer enthusiasts. Any bottle in the store can be chilled and imbibed right on-site at the communal benches or around the small mellow bar, or test your taste buds with a blind flight, offered every Tuesday, while noshing on a “pubcake” (that’s right, cupcakes made with beer). Beer education’s on the menu as well: guests can sniff four different types of hops, sample varieties of barley and wheat and compare tasting notes. Who says beer can’t be high-brow? Daily noon to 10 pm at 2161 India St., Little Italy, 619.487.9493.
