Large PARTIES & GROUP EVENTS

Nestled away in Rose Canyon, our Tasting Room is located at the site of our main brewery just outside of Pacific Beach. It is the heart and soul of our brewery. This space features a large outdoor beer garden, a barrel aging room, and windows into our brewery and bottling line.

The Tasting Room is the only place fans can try 20 Karl Strauss beers on tap at once, including specialty releases, brewery-only limited batches, and all the small batch beers created at our brewpubs.

For questions and inquiries please contact us directly at (858) 581-7324

Lost?

We know, we’re a little tough to find. We are located on the right side of Santa Fe st. right before it dead ends into the Rose Canyon bike path. Look for the sign on the roof and the smell of beer being brewed.
