Green Flash and Port Brewing are near the top for me and I'm sure you've tried Stone. I'm also a huge fan of Lost Abbey's Belgian-style beers (same company as Port Brewing), particularly Lost and Found and Judgement Day. Their brewery is in San Marcos up in north county, very close to Stone, so you could hit both easily. If you can find Alpine Brewing beers, give them a try. Their brewery is east of San Diego but the beers are pretty readily available. I'm also a big, big fan of Ballast Point Sculpin IPA. If you find yourself in Ocean Beach, go to their Pizza Port for good pies and an excellent tap beer selection a block from the beach. I'm in Norcal for the academic year, otherwise would love to meet up for a beer. Have fun!
