Juneshine Hard Kombucha To Open New Location In San Diego's North Park

January 13, 2020

San Diego-based hard kombucha company, Juneshine, is continuing its aggressive expansion plans and will soon relocate from its flagship tasting room within the CRAFT by Brewery Igniter space to The Jackson apartment building in North Park.

Founded by University of San Diego graduates Gregory Serrao & Forrest Dein, Juneshine opened in Spring 2018 in the former San Diego Brewing Company space within North Park's CRAFT by Brewery Igniter at 3052 El Cajon Boulevard. Marketed as "California's first organic hard kombucha brewery", Juneshine promotes itself as a "transparent alcohol brand that caters to a healthy and active lifestyle." Like Saint Archer Brewing, which was purchased by MillerCoors in 2015 for nearly $100 million, Juneshine has used a team of professional surfers, skiers, adventurers, artists, and creatives to be "brand ambassadors" of the company in order to boost social media growth. Backed by funding from Bird Rock Capital LLC, last year Juneshine expanded its brewing operations with the takeover of the 24,000 square-foot former Ballast Point Brewing Old Grove facility in Scripps Ranch. The much-expanded footprint allowed Juneshine to substantially increase production of its hard jun, a version of kombucha made with honey rather than sugar.

This spring, Juneshine will move a few blocks north from their original location into the 2,000 square-foot unit on the base floor of the new The Jackson mixed-use community on 30th Street in North Park. The space will feature a Bohemian-chic tasting room with a private event space and 600-square foot outdoor patio. There is no timeline currently in place on when Juneshine will close its location within Brewery Igniter.
