Who knew an article on 10 Great Places to Have a Beer would turn into the most controversial story we ever ran in our newsletter? It turns out, however, that we weren't kidding when we said Monterey County has a burgeoning beer scene. As evidenced by the emails and phone calls both visitors to and residents of Monterey County are quite passionate about their beer. To our shock, we even got a callout in the Monterey County Weekly's food section this past Thursday for the article.
So — now that you're sated from this weekend's Monterey Beer Festival — what venues did we miss? Should we have included the not-yet-open Cannery Row Brewing Company? Stuck strictly to places that brew their own beer? What's your iconic beer spot in Monterey County? Tell us in the comments section.
