If the beer lovers in your life are smiling just a little bit more this week, it's probably because it's their favorite time of the year.

San Diego Beer Week 2013 is underway and continues through this Sunday.

But with all the breweries, brew-pubs and brewery-restaurants in town, how can you be sure you're picking the pub that's right for you?

Beer and food columnist Brandon Hernandez has bravely sampled just about all the craft beer that San Diego has to offer and he's out with a new book: "San Diego Beer News Complete Guide to San Diego Breweries."

"Think of it as something of a Zagat guide for San Diego craft beer," said Hernandez.

The ebook rates more than 70 breweries in the county, based on quality, service and setting. He also offers detailed descriptions about what brewhouses offer and what they lack.

San Diego Beer News Complete Guide to San Diego Breweries is available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble and iTunes.
