Head brewer Jeff Drum opened with one entirely new beer on tap, a Scottish Ale called 80 Shilling (named for its alcohol-content per historic Scottish practices). He has another beer in development, which he plans on debuting soon, an IPA called Shadow Fall. In addition to all that ale, San Diego Brewing's satellite also serves house-made root beer and a pair of kombuchas, one of which is pumpkin pie-flavored and served on nitro.
The North Park facility is equipped with a 10-barrel brewing system Drum uses to double-batch into 20-barrel fermentation and conditioning tanks. The tasting room is open to the public from 4 to 9 pm, Mon. thru Thurs., 3 to 10 pm on Fridays, noon to 10 pm on Sat. and Sun from noon to 9 pm.
