Petco Park Beer Guide 2023

Posted in 2023 in

In the time since Petco Park first opened, the San Diego beer scene has exploded. Inside the park is no exception, with high octane hops washing away the leak-inducing legacy of watered-down corporate domestics. With all the craft beer drinking going on around the stadium, San Diego might need to rename their team to something with a little more hops and grain to it. San Diego Porters? The Pint-dres? We’ve got it… the San Diego IPA-dres.

For beer fans visiting San Diego Padres games, here’s our new guide to help map out the menu of craft beers and microbrews in and around Petco Park.

“Beer needs baseball, and baseball needs beer – it has always been thus.”
-Peter Richmond
