Rumors of summer coming to an end are largely being ignored by us San Diegans. As we welcome another NFL season, we still enjoy at day at the beach while its 75-degrees at summer’s “end” and still enjoy a craft beer even schedule that remains strong through the end of the year. Here is a list of just some of the events for the month of September, which is a warmup for San Diego Beer Week early November.
