It’s Summer, and there’s a ton of great beer to drink in San Diego. We’re teaming up with two of our favorite breweries in town—Benchmark Brewing Company and Fall Brewing Co.—to make that super easy.
The Summer Solstice Ale Trail is back again for 2015. If you traveled the Ale Trail last year, you already know how it works, but here’s a refresher on what’s going on for this year. Throughout the entire month of June, stop into any of our three brewery’s tasting rooms and pick up your official 2015 Summer Solstice Ale Trail Passport.
Keep this card handy, as each time you visit one of our breweries you will collect a stamp on the Passport in recognition of your visit. By visiting all three breweries, and collecting all three stamps, you will successfully complete the passport (and hopefully taste a lot of great San Diego beer along the way). Once you have a completed Passport, redeem that card at any of our locations in order to receive a commemorative pair of drinking socks. That’s right, this year you will take home a swanky pair of drinking footwear to make your friends jealous and to keep your feet looking fresh.
The Passports and the drinking socks will be available at each brewery while supplies last, and you’ve got from June 1 – June 30 to complete the Ale Trail.
Oh yeh, you know that the American Homebrewers Association is coming to San Diego again this year for the National Homebrewers Conference, right? Well, you do now. As part of the Conference, we’re making it even easier to complete the Ale Trail. Thanks to our friends at Brewery Tours of San Diego, we will have a free shuttle bus that runs from the Conference location at the Town & Country Resort to Benchmark Brewing Company, to Societe, then on over to Fall Brewing Co., and then back to the Town & Country Resort. This shuttle hits the Trail on June 9 from 3:00pm – 8:00pm, and there couldn’t be an easier or safer way to complete the Ale Trail in one afternoon of awesome San Diego beer-infused fun.
We’re dreaming about a tall glass of “Table Beer,” a full pour of “The Harlot,” and a creamy pour of “2 a.m. Bike Ride” right now…it just sounds like Summer.
For those who need to know, you can find us all at:
- Benchmark Brewing Company – 6190 Fairmount Ave., Ste. G, San Diego, CA 92120 – @BenchmarkBrew

Plan to ride along the Ale Trail this Summer, and join us and our friends at Benchmark Brewing Company and Fall Brewing Co. in celebrating some of the best beer that San Diego has to offer. Oh, and drinking socks.
