Black Plague Brewing To Bring Burgers & Beer To San Diego's North County City Of Escondido

June 27, 2022

North County San Diego's 5-year-old Black Plague Brewing is opening a new area taproom with an onsite burger restaurant. 

Black Plague Brewing was founded by former pro-skateboarder Jordan Hoffart and Jarred Doss in Oceanside, CA in 2017. The company was previously set to open a taproom in North Park but that deal fell through during the early days of the pandemic. After a long search, Black Plague has secured a 2,400 square-foot space with a 1,400 square-foot back patio in downtown Escondido. 

For its new location, Black Plague has joined forces with its longtime pop-up food partner Full Metal Burgers, who will operate from the onsite kitchen. Tentatively dubbed the "Purgatory Lounge", expect a handful of taps devoted to signature beers like Bring Out Your Dead American IPA, Tony Hawps West Coast IPA, and In My Darkest Sour. 

Black Plague Brewing is anticipated to open in late August at 239 East Valley Parkway in Escondido. For more information, visit
