Eater's beer readers have been wondering about the status of La Jolla Brewing Company, the new brewpub replacing the ten-year-old La Jolla Brew House in the seaside neighborhood.
With an end-of-year opening approaching, its new proprietors have given the space a complete overhaul, including a much-needed cleaning and modern update of every corner, from the retractable roof-covered patio with fire pits to the new 24-tap towers which will hold at least four house beers and other guest brews. Brewer Brett Stampf will debut his craft with a Glider Port Pale, Sunny Jim's IPA and Bird Rock Brown, plus more-to-come. For now, the La Jolla Brewing Company's beers will only be served in-house, but the owners may look for a separate production facility to be able to distribute beyond this site.
A diverse menu spans the gamut of brewpub food, from mac and cheese bowls and flatbreads to salads and sandwiches, but there are larger entrees too, including crispy duck, grilled skirt steak and a roasted half-chicken.
