The LIST of San Diego Breweries and Tasting Rooms

Roughly each month I post an update on the openings and closings in the San Diego craft beer industry. The updated list is here, so you can always find it in the same place. Check the monthly posts in the brewery review area of the blog for details of openings and closings.

San Diego Breweries and Tasting Rooms

This link will take you to a searchable spreadsheet. There are tabs for operating, closed and in-planning venues.

In addition, these locations are craft beer satellite tasting rooms in San Diego, but the beer is brewed outside of San Diego County:

Non-San Diego-Brewed Craft Brewpubs

  1. BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse (Chula Vista)

  2. BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse (La Mesa)

  3. BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse (Hazard Center)

  4. BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse (La Jolla)

  5. BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse (Escondido)

  6. BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse (Carlsbad)

Note: BJ’s has six breweries in five states (Brea, Boulder, Chandler, Reno, Temple, West Covina) and has won a variety of awards (including 28 GABF medals since 2000; BJ’s won Large Brewpub of the Year at GABF 2002). BJ’s breweries are members of the Brewer’s Association, which means that BJ’s is craft beer. That is contrary to what I had thought; certainly, West Coaster and others don’t have them on their lists of craft beer in San Diego.

  1. Oggi’s Pizza Express (SDSU)

  2. Oggi’s Sports | Brewhouse | Pizza (Liberty Station)

  3. Oggi’s Sports | Brewhouse | Pizza (Santee)

  4. Oggi’s Sports | Brewhouse | Pizza (Del Mar)

  5. Oggi’s Sports | Brewhouse | Pizza (Encinitas)

  6. Oggi’s Sports | Brewhouse | Pizza (Vista)

  7. Oggi’s Sports | Brewhouse | Pizza (Mission Valley)

Note: As I was told by an employee in spring 2017, Oggi’s no longer brews on any of their own premises [July 2017: except Carmel Mountain Ranch] but instead contracts with Left Coast (San Clemente, CA) to have their recipes made.
