Changing of the Barrels

February 2, 1989 marks the first day we opened our doors on Columbia St. in Downtown San Diego and introduced the city to craft beer. Each February, to honor the occasion, we invite a few friends down to the brewery for the debut of our annual Barrel-Aged Anniversary release and a chance to taste the next year’s batch before it spends a year in barrels.

OUR 2019 CELEBRATION

We will celebrate our 30th year in beer on Saturday, February 2nd at our Tasting Room & Beer Garden in Pacific Beach.
