About this Feature

Now in its 5th year, the Sore Eye Cup is an award created by local blogger and podcast host Brian Beagle to name San Diego’s best independent craft beer.

The award process begins with a public nomination period to list everyone’s choices for best beer, followed by the vote-down until 10 beers remain. With a finalized list of contestants, Brian and his team of beer tasters use a proprietary scoring system to rate and declare a winner.

The victor is presented with an engraved 64oz crystal cup at an awards ceremony, and last weekend Benchmark Brewing Company took home the cup for their Oatmeal Stout. Congratulations to both the brewery, and Brian Beagle on another successful Sore Eye Cup which raises more awareness for great local San Diego beer!
