Help me plan the best San Diego beer trip ever

My husband loves craft beer, so for his birthday next March, I am planning to take him on a surprise trip to San Diego. He loves Stone, so a visit there is definitely on the cards. Does anyone have suggestions of the best places to go for beer, preferably with good IPAs and/or stouts? [more inside]

Your stop-drinking success stories?

Non-alcoholic beer — but for spirits? Help replace my gin.

I'm trying to reduce my alcohol intake, much of which is made up of either a bottle of beer after work, followed by a later bourbon or gin over ice. I've switched to non-alcoholic beers for post-dinner on weeknights, which seems to satisfy the craving. I'd like to find a similar substitute that can take the place of the spirits. Something herbal, full-flavored and sip-able. Does this magic drink exist? [more inside]

Minneapolis Brew Pubs & Breweries for Pub Crawl on Saturday?

Hi, we have guests visiting us in Minneapolis for the 4th of July holiday weekend. We've got a minivan and designated driver and we'd like to drive around and visit a number of small breweries/brewpubs tomorrow. We took them to Indeed, Fulton, and 612 last time they were in town.

Beer Me, Cocktail Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me

A friend brought an 18-pack of Miller Lites to our house, and we now have a bunch of excess Miller Lites nestled in our kitchen.

Yes, YOU; I'm asking YOU, dear reader!

What kind of wine might a beer drinker like?

Due to medical reasons, I can no longer drink carbonated beverages, including beer. So what kind of wine might quench my thirst after a long day at the lake? Any other suggestions like hard cider or lemonade that isn't carbonated? Margaritas obviously, but what else? I typically enjoy good old Bud Light so something along those lines.

Miss Spiteful and Pipeworks brewing in Chicago, how can I ship them?

I moved to the Bay Area a year ago and have no complaints about the weather thus far. On the other hand I really miss the Chicago breweries that aren't available in stores out here. I'd love to get my hands on some of their new releases, particularly their stouts and porters. Anyone know if it's legal and possible to ship beer to CA for personal consumption and how to go about it?

How can I find a commercial beer similar to a local favorite.

I recently tasted a beer that is brewed locally and I really enjoyed it. How can I determine which commercial beer would taste the most similar? I won't always be in this region and have access to this brewery. I'm not typically a "beer" person and don't really have tons of knowledge on beer and their flavors, but I enjoy this one and a Guinness occasionally. Thank you in advance.
