The San Diego indi beer industry has grown like yeast stains over the past number of years and we lucky San Diegans get to live it everyday! From new breweries openings like Bay City Brewing Co. representing new life in a local industry that has always been about community to well established breweries like Helm’s Brewing Co. branching out into new San Diego communities we have much to look forward to.
Bay City Brewing Co.
Located smack dab in between San Diego and Mission Bay Bay City is aptly named after the city we call home. The freedom to brew a wide array of diverse beer styles attracted ex Monkey Paw brewer Chris West to the Bay City head brewer position and the rest is history. Young history as it were with Bay City only having months under it’s belt it seems the best it yet to come. Taste Bay City brews at Heroes Brew Fest on July 23rd or stop by Bay City to enjoy malty, hoppy and sour brews on tap daily. No matter your taste preference Bay City’s got something for everyone!
Helm’s Brewing Co.
Multiple award winning and well established Helm’s Brewing company is expanding with a new tasting room project slated to open any day now. Newport Ave. Ocean Beach will soon be home to Helms second tasting room and if this location is anything like the mother ship you can expect some seriously fun themed events and brews! For example today Helms is celebrating National Doughnut Day by tapping into a special Beeruccino Maple Bar Cask and serving up complimentary donuts. And that’s just for National Doughnut Day!
