Booze Brothers Brewing

At Booze Brothers (which was actually started by brothers Dave and Donny Firth), you can try unique seasonal brews like Gin Gose and Peachy Monkey in their tasting room, and come for events like live music, art shows, and a rotating schedule of local food vendors.

Iron Fist Brewing

In true microbrewery fashion, the original Iron Fist Brewing tap room is nestled in a random industrial Park in Vista, open Wednesday through Sunday. This chill tap room also has live music and food truck fare alongside fun selections like Nelson the Impaler extra pale ale and gentler offerings like Summer City American lager.

Bear Roots Brewing Company

At the Bear Roots tasting room, you can enjoy delicious beers from a Chocolate Peanut Butter Stout to a pumpkin ale to a blood orange IPA. This brewery was also created to be a home base for home brewers–so if you want to start making your own beer, pick up one of their beer kits, or talk brewing with other locals over a pint and a pizza.
