Two veterans of San Diego’s craft beer scene are bringing a new beer garden and restaurant called The Hop Stop to Poway, a community that remains relatively unsaturated, beer-wise. Founders Mark and Rebecca Saldivar are both longtime neighborhood residents; Mark worked for San Diego Brewing Company for nearly 20 years while Rebecca has logged considerable experience at several local breweries and beer-focused eateries including Second Chance Beer Co., Callahan’s, Urge Gastropub, and Abnormal Beer Co.

Scheduled to open this spring, The Hop Stop is the couple’s first solo project; the Saldivars tell Eater that they’re looking forward to bringing a kid and pet-friendly, beer-focused eatery to an still underserved area. Featuring a modern industrial design of metal and wood, the space is being extensively remodeled to encompass a front dining room and bar with a wrap-around patio; a set of roll up doors will open onto a spacious beer garden. A kitchen is being constructed in a separate building, where guests will order a range of appetizers, salads, pizza, and burgers from walk-up window. The owners say that they hope to bring a version of The Hop Stop to other local areas in the future.
