Remodel Update

Come have a beer in our new space

We invite you to join us for a handcrafted beer at our newly remodeled Sorrento Mesa brewery restaurant. We’ve made a lot of changes to this historic location, including doubling the size of the bar, creating a more social atmosphere. Pull up a barstool and enjoy the modern brewery-loft vibe with concrete, stainless steel and reclaimed wood elements. There is no bad seat in the house with our wall to wall garage-style roll-up doors bringing the outdoors in, and large communal tables creating a beer garden atmosphere.

We’ve added several more seats to the space, making more room for friends and family to gather around. We worked with a local San Diego artisan to custom build all of our furniture using reclaimed wood and vintage hardware dating back to the 1800’s. A new deck cantilevers over the koi pond bringing you closer to the amazing scenery that dubbed the location’s name, "brewery gardens". We also built private space, including secluded patio areas, available for your next birthday, office meeting, or any occasion. We all know that every event is better with beer. See you soon.
