From the Archives: San Diego Beer Insider

Last year, Shawn from San Diego Beer Insider did a story about Aero Club and the Regal Beagle down the street.

Here is the part where he talks about Aero:
“The 1st noteworthy stop is the Aero Club. The Aero Club is a San Diego Institution and is a throw back to the days when San Diego was a world leader in the aerospace industry.

I have a sentimental attachment to this bar as well. Several years ago I was on a date with a hot girl. We had been on a few dates and I really dug her, but this one wasn’t going my way and looked like it might be the last. I happened to live in this area at the time so  I asked if we could stop for a drink on the way back. She agreed and we wound up having a great time and discussion. We were married a couple of years later and she is still the love of my life.

The Aero Club is a pretty small place and the pool tables in the back are so squeezed in that they have some sawed off sticks to make those difficult shots. I’m including this bar with the beer bars although they actually have turned more into a whiskey bar; a recent change since for years they were licensed for beer only. They were evidently pretty excited about the modified liquor license, they have about as huge of a spirits collection as I’ve seen.”
