Bier Garden

No need to crack open a cold one when you can take a ride up to The Bier Garden of Encinitas and let them take care of everything. Select one of their local craft beers on tap and take in the salty, North County air!

This popular restaurant is located on the main street in Encinitas and is known for its SoCal vibe and epic brews.  For National IPA Day they will be celebrating by offering $5 select beers, all day long. And if you decide that one day just isn’t enough to celebrate, come back on August 2nd to celebrate International ‘Bier’ Day.
