Respect, Share, and Enjoy Our Craft

Know Thy Craft

We pride ourselves on having multiple Certified Cicerones and Certified Beer Servers in our ranks. Joining Karl Strauss comes with an expectation that you take your beer seriously and back that up by furthering your own knowledge and education. We have a ton of resources and programs available to help you along in your personal journey.

You can learn more about our involvement with education and mentoring programs by checking out our Education page

Share Thy Craft

In our brewpubs, we take pride in being a gateway of knowledge and information for our guests. Everything from beer and food pairings to style education is part of the Karl Strauss experience that goes above and beyond what you’ll find anywhere else.

Learn, Improve, and Grow


Our focus on wellness means Karl Strauss team members have a ton of resources for keepin’ fit to balance out all the beer drinking. Join in our bi-weekly yoga sessions, attend a bootcamp, or take advantage of our Farmers’ Market Box program that includes fresh and organic produce from Specialty Produce, delivered weekly to our Home Office.

Educate, Inspire, Encourage

We are huge supporters of the Pink Boots Society and are proud of the women we work with who are active members. Each year we participate in the International Women’s Collaboration Brew Day and spread the love for our righteous sisters in beer.

Caring For Our Environment And Each Other

Walkin’ The Walk

We regularly support local grassroots non-profit organizations based in San Diego through a combination of fundraising and participation. Our commitment to being a sustainability-focused company means going beyond the walls of our brewery and brewpubs and personally contributing to causes we believe in.

Check out our efforts and partnerships on our Sustainability and the Environment page.

Winning At Life, Together

There is no “I” In Team, but there is an “I” in “I’m drinking this beer to celebrate that we beat you in softball!” As the recent winners of our company tournament can attest, there’s nothing wrong with some healthy sibling rivalry in the KARL family.

Authentic Relationships Based On Trust and Integrity

Handcrafted Beer. Local Art. Independent Music.

Our Arts & Amps series brings together friends and coworkers at our Main Brewery and Tasting Room for an evening of art, music, and beer. They’re just a few of our many events that help strengthen our company culture as well as the great relationships we have with our local community.

Collaborating With Friends

We love to invite our friends out to make beer with us. Each of our Brewpubs features a satellite brew system where we’re constantly collaborating with other breweries and team members to craft small batch recipes. Beer might bring us together, but there’s nothing quite like enjoying a beer you brewed together.
