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. 

 
 

TASTING ROOM

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 has spent a tremendous amount of time with Whitelabs, learning all sorts of awesome things about fermentation and the science behind the brew.

Darrin izadi

Darrin is the newest addition to the team and happens to be the "brother-in-lager" to Ian, making him family before he even joined the team! He has been in beer sales for quite some time, loving every bit of it. Previously he was with another awesome brewery, BNS Brewing, so he's well established and loved in the San Diego craft beer market. When he's not smiling he's selling beer, except when he's smiling when he's selling beer, otherwise he's always smiling :) We're stoked to have him be part of the family

elvin lai

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.
