the brewery


we are

simply different


About Us

We operate a 10 barrel brew house with 440 barrels of fermentation capacity, all housed inside of our brewery/winery/restaurant facility located in the Rancho Bernardo business park, a small little suburb of north San Diego.

We do all of our production on site, with windows into both the brewery and our expanded tank farm, while housing all of our barrels and kegs in our 10,000 sqft warehouse just up the street. We focus on producing beers that emphasize drinkability, originality and creativity. 



We are located in a business park just off of the 15 freeway, a quick 2 blocks west on Rancho Bernardo Road and Via Tazon. 

Our tasting room is attached to our restaurant, The Cork and Craft. We're open every day except for Monday, including lunch during the work week, and brunch on Sundays. We offer not only our own beers on tap, but many other guest beers from around the world that we share our 40 taps with. We feature flights of our own beers which can be enjoyed in the bar, restaurant or on our heated outdoor patio.

Come in for the beer, stay for the food, and discover your Abnormal side.

He comes to us after a long journey that took him from Funky Buddha and Green Flash to our brewery, along with all of the awesome experience and knowledge of a production brewery, and a passion for crafting fun and awesome brews.

She is a recent transplant from the Seattle craft beer scene after traveling around the world.

Elvin, also known as The Hammer, Mr. Excel, and Spreadsheet Master; is the man that ensures that everyone behaves and doesn't buy gold plated fermenters. He has a long history of managing money as he is the head of his family hotel, The Ocean Park Inn, in Pacific Beach, as well as his hotel software platform HotelBeat. Outside of cracking the proverbial whip, Elvin's favorite thing to do is to crush the dreams of all of the fancy brewery items that we can't afford.
