About Us

So here's what you need to know. We are brewers and culinarians.We want our beer to taste good, but we also want it to taste good with food. We don't want to blow-out your palate, we want you to explore the hidden flavors and understand the complexities of the taste.

We love beer. We want you to love beer.We will focus on crafting beers between 4.5% and 7.0% ABV. Our goal is a well-balanced, well-crafted, session beer. We'll do the hop-thing too, but always with an exciting and culinary-focused angle.

Here's the other thing. We're adventurous. San Diego is the brew capital of the world (are we exaggerating here... NO!) There's lots of great brewers. We found a few of them and held them down, twisted their arm really hard and asked them to brew something new and out there for us. Then, we found a few chefs who thought brewing was good sport. We helped them with the technical stuff and set them loose with the brew equipment.

You'll see their brew in our taproom...they may have other gigs in the city, and we support their efforts there too. Beer is beer. Drink it here. Drink it there. Drink it anywhere (with apologies to Dr. Seuss).
