Wake up and smell the blueberries!

Why is it that I have to drink beer from Maine to get a decent blueberry beer? I live in San Diego, which is arguably the microbrew capital of the world, and no one here is making good fruit beers anymore. I know that many of the folks in So Cal like to bash their tastebuds in with super bitter IPAs, but can't someone just brew up a few good fruity beers? Yeah, OK, Alpine does a good raspberry now and again, but who else is making anything similar? I know I am not the only person who is head over heels for Shipyard's Smashed Blueberry, so can some local brewer please step up and make me a nice fruit beer?
