San Diego Beer Pairing Dinner Cruise

Join us Friday evenings aboard our Hops on the Harbor craft beer dinner cruise. Each month, chef Brian Gist collaborates with a different San Diego brewery to create an exciting gourmet menu, with food that pairs perfectly with the distinctive flavors of each brewer's beer selections. This two-and-a-half-hour cruise features multiple food stations, picturesque bay views, and of course a full bar with rotating local brews and craft beer flights. The fun continues after dinner with music and dancing.

Every Hops cruise ends with a raffle. Guests can win merchandise from our brewery partners, passes to future cruises, and watches from Carlsbad's Original Grain Watch Company.

Featured Local Brewery:


Mother Earth Brew Co. has grown from a modest garage operation to a 70,000 sq. ft. success story. The family-run brewery, based in Vista, continues to produce complex, palate-pleasing beers, most notably its popular Cali Creamin’ vanilla cream ale. View Menu


Modern Times Beer is a beloved local favorite, recently named San Diego’s Best Brewery by West Coaster magazine readers. First released in Point Loma in 2013, their lineup of aroma-driven, flavorful, “sessionish” beers are all named after utopias. View Menu


Pizza Port Brewing Company offered its first brews to San Diegans in 1992 and quickly gained a reputation in the growing craft beer scene. Now, with over 91 medals/awards from the Great American Beer Festival, Pizza Port is a San Diego originial favorite.
