‘Tis the season to crack a frothy one and get merry with friends and family. Did you know that beer especially comes in handy around the holidays? Just think of all the benefits of beer this time of year… potentially awkward family and work parties get lightened up, there is no preparation except to chill it in the fridge before hosting an ugly sweater party, you can make ordinary recipes (hyperlink ‘recipes’ to http://www.foodnetwork.com/holidays-and-parties/cooking-with-beer/index.html) extraordinary, and there are countless special holiday editions (make ‘special holiday editions’ hyperlink to http://draftmag.com/features/25-beers-of-christmas/). Beer season- I think so! Being that San Diego is the craft beer mecca of our country, and possibly the world, we don’t really have a season for extra beer consumption, but for all of you feeling extra keen to drink some crafty brews, you’ve come to the right spot. To follow are my picks for the five best breweries in San Diego (did I hear someone say brewery crawl?) and a standout brew from each. Santa, if you’re reading this, feel free to put these five ales under my tree…

Cinco De Mayo Party Essentials Set aside the rest of May to apologize for what you're going to do this Cinco de Mayo
Cant decide between a margarita or a beer this Cinco de Drinko? Then combine the best of both booze with a “Beerita” Its a tasty new-school cocktail that looks loco, but can also mellow out a overly saccharine margarita.
2 Part Reposado Tequila
1 Part Cointreau
1 whole lime, squeezed
Limeade to taste
1 Large glass, stable base
1 Mexican Beer
Directions: Pour Tequila, Cointreau, Lime & Limeade over ice in shaker. Shake until chilled, pour into steady serving glass, stopping 2-4 inches from the top. Open beer bottle, quickly upturn beer into the margarita.
As you slurp down the drink, the beer will naturally and evenly empty into the glass. Enjoy your cervazarita, beerita, or whatever you call it responsibly.
