Barn Door Public House To Bring Self-Pour Craft Beverages & Montreal-Style Bagels To San Diego's North County

May 20, 2022

Opening this summer in San Diego's North County is Barn Door Public House, a self-service craft beverage bar and beer garden with a menu of Montreal-style bagels. 

From longtime friends Brian Scott, Matthew Veling and Brian McNeill, Barn Door Public House is an incoming self-pour tap room being constructed in a 1,375 square-foot standalone building that last housed a Gracie jiu-jitsu gym in San Diego's North County community of Escondido. Named after the reclaimed 100-year-old Kentucky barn door at the businesse's entrance, expect a country-style design featuring barn doors throughout the space, as well as 1,700 square-foot outdoor beer garden with fire pits and bar table seating. 

"We hope to create an environment where our community can socially congregate, enjoy time with friends and try a variety of tasty beers," explained Barn Door Public House co-founder Brian McNeill. "We also have a full-service kiosk on our patio that will also be open for breakfast with bagels and coffee. We are currently working on relationships with emerging companies to provide our dining service." 

Barn Door Public House will have more than 20 taps of self-pour beverages, including craft beer, wine
hard kombucha and ciders. There will also be a food from Hawaii's Empty Elle Bagel Shop with a menu centered around hand-rolled, honey boiled Montreal-style bagels, including specialty decadent night time bagels, as well as a selection of appetizers and finger foods. 

Barn Door Public House is anticipated to open some point this summer at 2500 South Escondido Boulevard in Escondido, CA. For more information, visit
