The 30th Street craft beer corridor's newest member, Belching Beaver Brewery, officially opens its doors to the public on Wednesday at 3 p.m. The location is a second tasting room for the brewery, whose main production facility is in Vista.
Though there's been some speculation that the tasting room would go by another name, Eater has confirmed that it will be called Belching Beaver North Park. Their newly registered Hop Highway Brewing Company handle is for a line of collaboration beers that the brewery is releasing.
For now, co-owners Tom Vogel and Dave Mobley, along with their brew master and partner, Troy Smith, have no plans to brew in North Park; Belching Beaver does have the capacity to add nine 30 barrel fermenters to their North County space.
The 2,500-square-foot tasting room has room for 70 to 100 beer drinkers and a tasting bar with two identical sets of 12 taps that'll dispense Belching Beaver's brews; beer will be available by the taster, half-pint, pint, growler and keg.
Opening hours to start will be 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. weekdays and 3 p.m. to midnight on weekends; the brewery's made arrangements with Crazee Burger and Sicilian Thing to coordinate food delivery to the tasting room.
