Mike Hess Brewing To Open Seaside Imperial Beach Brewpub With Incarnation Of City Tacos

May 8, 2017

Mike Hess Brewing Co. is in the process of taking over the seaside space at 805 Ocean Lane in Imperial Beach that is currently occupied by IB Yoga for the opening of its 3rd San Diego County tasting room with an outdoor patio, rooftop beer garden and a restaurant in partnership with the crew from City Taco.

Mike Hess Brewing, which began in 2010 in Miramar and has since opened tasting rooms in North Park & Ocean Beach, is expanding to San Diego's South County. The new tasting room will be located a stone's throw from the IB Pier, not far from incoming The Shipping Yard restaurant, which will also house a tasting room for Ironfire Brewing.

Expect the new Mike Hess Brewing an open air design to let in the ocean breezes, as well as high top tables and multiple taps devoted to its highly rated craft beer, including nitro taps and a canning machine for take out. A collaboration between Mike Hess and City Tacos owner Gerry Torres, who also owns Tostadas in North Park and nearby IB Street Tacos in Imperial Beach, the new Mike Hess Brewing location will occupy 4,300 square-feet of beachside space with a quarter-million-dollar buildout by OBR Architecture. The location will hold 185 guests within its two-tier shipping container-built space, featuring a large outdoor patio, fire pit, and backyard games. There will be a full menu of tacos and Mexican treats from City Tacos. The tasting room aims to open by year's end or early 2018.
