It's just uncertain exactly when it will get here.
San Diego Mission Brewery is in the process of installing a tasting room and retail shop at 1380 Garnet Ave. on the corner of Garnet Avenue and Gresham Street.
“We are waiting on our Alcohol Beverage Control (ABC) Type 23 license, which allows families with underage kids and dogs to come in,” said Julia Pasek, Mission Brewery's project coordinator. “The property was purchased from a new landlord and remodeled, and has been through quite a transformation – it's a very nice space.
“People can bring their kids with them and enjoy a beer with lunch brought in from our East Village site” at 1441 L St. in downtown San Diego,” Pasek said.
Pasek stressed that a tasting room is not a restaurant. “We would have our own seasonal beers on tap, and people could bring in food,” she said.
Mission Brewery was originally established in 1913. Avid homebrewer Dan Selis re-established the brand in 2007 and opened in a brewery addition to a restaurant in UTC. The brewery soon outgrew the space and relocated to a shared warehouse brewery in Chula Vista.
After a few years, Mission secured the prime Wonder Bread space near Petco Park in San Diego's East Village. Mission now has over 40 national and international craft brewing awards under its belt.
The PB tasting room will be the company's first offsite outpost and will serve onsite, as well as offer growlers, cans and bottles for takeout.
The new Mission Brewery Tasting Room in Pacific Beach anticipates an early 2017 opening. For more information, visit missionbrewery.com.
