The Coaster Commuter Train goes from Carlsbad to the Old Town Transit Center.

Also, the Amtrak Train goes from Oceanside to San Diego and has checked luggage service on most trains. Some Amtrak trains stop at Old Town (which is only a few miles from Downtown, and the San Diego Trolley goes between the Santa Fe Station and Old Town.) There is no checked luggage service at the Old Town Station.

I would head to Oggi's, Karl Strauss or Stone Breweries for a good Microbrew.

Fortunatley we have about 35 microbreweries in SD county.

You certainly dont need to go to their locations to try them since many of our bars have good selections on tap.

Some of the best SD County microbreweries include:

Stone

Alesmith

Ballast Point

Green Flash

Mission

Coronado Brewing Company

Oggi's and Karl Straus are pretty average, try most of the others before you get to theirs.

Im an IPA drinker, I like a very hoppy beer so that is my suggestion but if that is not your style al of those I mention have a good variety of styles.

Yes the coaster leaves from old town on a very set schedule. Awesome way to get to beaches for a small price. Because we used transit, we bought a region promo pass for 12$ we went from sante fe station to Carlsbad and then back, took orange line downtown to get bus back to hotel. All day transit for 12$.

For beer, you can also check out the "Where can I find craft beer in San Diego?" link in the "Top Questions About San Diego" section at the top right of this page.

Also, this week (2-11 Nov.) is San Diego Beer Week:
