Bolt Brewery To Open New Tasting Room & Restaurant In San Diego's Old Town

June 7, 2023

The husband-and-wife team behind East County-based Bolt Brewery has taken over the space that last housed Hungry's Kitchen & Tap in San Diego's Old Town and will soon open a new brewpub.

La Mesa residents Clint & Molly Stromberg brought Bolt Brewery to their East County San Diego neighborhood in 2014 and expanded with a tasting room and restaurant in Little Italy that opened in summer 2015. In summer 2019, the Strombergs opened Bolt Brewery & Spirits in the La Mesa space that housed Mr. G's Tavern for seven decades, but that location shuttered in 2020 at the onset of the pandemic. 

The newest Bolt Brewery outpost will open later this year in the space that housed Hungry's Kitchen & Tap (previously O'Hungry's) in the heart of San Diego's historic Old Town neighborhood. Expect a handful of taps with Bolt's signature craft beer options like the OG IPA, Dan Stout, Citrasaurus, and Love Canoe Lager, as well as a full food menu with items like burgers, sandwiches, wings, burritos, tacos, salads and much more. 

Bolt Brewery is anticipated to open as early as this summer at 2547 San Diego Avenue in Old Town. For more information, visit
