San Diego's Little Miss Brewing Continues Area Expansion

July 21, 2021

San Diego's 5-year-old Little Miss Brewing is continuing its local expansion with plans to open a new tasting room in Poway.

Husband and wife Greg & Jade Malkin founded Little Miss Brewing in San Diego's beer-drenched Miramar neighborhood in 2016. With immediate expansion as a goal, the couple opened a Normal Heights satellite tasting room in 2017 while also working to install a location in Ocean Beach. Unfortunately for them, residents and township administers of the overly protective beachside community were opposed to more breweries moving into the neighborhood, resulting in problems that caused the Malkins to abandon the tasting room project after already investing substantial funds. Little Miss Brewing didn't let one small hurdle derail the budding company and now has addition tasting rooms in downtown’s East Village, La Mesa, Escondido, Lakeside and its brewing headquarters in Miramar.

Little Miss Brewing has taken over the space that long housed Lappert's Ice Cream & Coffee Lounge within the strip mall on the corner of Pomerado and Scripps Poway Parkway in San Diego's East County. Like its other spots, the tasting room will be designed with a World War II flying theme and military-related decor. Each of the Little Miss tasting rooms has a theme that pays homage to U.S. ally country from WWII. For instance, Normal Heights is Great Britain and the East Village incorporates a French design. Little Miss Brewing's new Lakeside beer bar, which will likely open by year's end, will offer numerous taps dedicated to house brews, as well as growlers to-go and a merchandise section.
