Local Farmers and Vendors

About us

It all started with a vision of offering quality food, great beer, and cocktails at a reasonable price. We reached that goal and opened our little neighborhood pub in 2011. In 2016 we added an in-house craft brewery, tasting room, and beer garden. Rancho Peñasquitos is home to our second location as of early 2019.
