Belching Beaver Brewing Will Bring New Tasting Room & Eatery To San Diego's East Village

August 1, 2017

The worst named brewery in San Diego will soon debut its 6th area outpost. Vista-based Belching Beaver Brewery, which launched in 2012, is in the process of taking over a space at 634 14th Street for the opening of a tasting room and eatery in the East Village.

Founded by Tom Vogel & Dave Mobley in 2012, Belching Beaver has grown from a modest start in Vista’s Business Park with a facility that produced 1,800 barrels per year into a mid-size brewery that can produce up to 40,000 barrels of craft beer annually. The company's beers, credited to head brewer Troy Smith, are now sold throughout California - from San Diego to San Francisco, as well as in Hawaii, Nevada, Oregon and Washington. Belching Beaver currently has 5 locations, including a large Oceanside brewing facility & tasting room, an Ocean Beach tasting room, a North Park tasting room, and two spots in the brewery's hometown of Vista in San Diego's North County - the original location and a new full service restaurant and brewpub that debuted last year.

Belching Beaver's East Village tasting room and restaurant will be located at 634 14th Street, Suite 110. The outpost will offer Belching Beaver's lineup of craft beers available for onsite consumption and for takeaway in bottles, cans and growlers, as well as a food component that will offer a menu of classic American dishes made with locally sourced ingredients like the Vista brewpub. The East Village branch is not anticipated to open until year's end, possibly early 2018.
