#110 Blind Lady Ale House (San Diego, California)

Since 2009, folks have been coming to Blind Lady Ale House for beer tapped from “the cleanest draft system in Southern California,” according to the bar, whose staff clean the lines between each keg change and their draft tech breaks down the taps and shanks weekly for a deep cleaning. BLAH (as it’s known to regulars) is home to Automatic Brewing Co., headed by master brewer Lee Chase, who has a degree in malting science for UC Davis and was the original brewer at Stone. Housed in a historic brick building built in 1921, the San Diego bar’s most famous beer is Sex Panther IPA (formerly Will Powered IPA), brewed annually to benefit the Will Ferrell-backed charity Cancer for College. There are 26 curated, independent beers on tap, along with six draft wines. Pull up a seat at the bar and admire the vintage beer can and bottle collection donated by NFL legend Ben Davidson, who played for the Oakland Raiders and spent time drinking at BLAH. Try BLAH's Neapolitan-style pizza created by co-owner Clea Hantman, who is a Verace Pizza Napoletana-certified pizzaiola. (Lisa W./Yelp)
