Sublime Alehouse To Shutter In San Diego's San Marcos After 10 Years In Business

September 1, 2021

The owners of Sublime Alehouse in San Diego's San Marcos community have announced they will be shuttering their restaurant after 10 years in business. 

In October 2011, Chef James Limjoco opened Sublime Alehouse in San Marcos, offering a menu of elevated comfort foods and a tap list heavily devoted to San Diego's craft beer. On a quest to expand his restaurant portfolio, Limjoco also opened Sublime Pizza in Rancho Bernard and Sublime Tavern near the Polo grounds in Del Mar, but both locations have since closed. 

"It is with a heavy heart that we need to announce Sublime Ale House will be closing its doors after an incredible 10 year run," announced Sublime Alehouse restaurant ownership in a post on the company's Facebook page. "It has been an absolute honor serving you all gourmet comfort food and taking part in the proliferation of craft beer. Wow, what an incredible ride the last decade has been! Thank you to all our loyal patrons for embracing us with open arms, and allowing us to help showcase the amazing flavors of craft beers from all over the world, most specifically San Diego County. You have supported us through the thick and thin, celebrating birthdays, graduations, promotions, reunions, holidays, or just getting together for some good quality grub and suds. We cannot thank you enough for the smiles, good times, stories, friendships, and staying with us all these years."

Sublime Alehouse will officially close its doors on Saturday, September 11. Those looking for one last taste are urged to visit the restaurant at 1020 W San Marcos Boulevard in San Marcos' Old California Restaurant Row. For more information, visit
