Culture Brewing Co | Solana Beach 
111 S Cedros Ave
Solana Beach, CA 92075

Trendy microbrewery featuring a modern-rustic tasting room with craft beers on tap & patio seating. The brewery is also famous for its art shows every first Friday of the month featuring local artists.  

Culture Brewing Co: "From the earliest brainstorms about taking things to the next level, the goal was always to create more than just great beer. Bringing an approachable style to the already rich community of the craft beer industry, we opened our brewery & on-site tasting room in February 2013. In November 2014, Culture Brewing Co opened our satellite tasting room in Ocean Beach CA. With our beers gaining fans every day, we couldn’t be more excited about what we’ll brew next, and who we’ll get to share it with.

Saint Archer Brewing Co
2051, 978 N Coast Hwy 101
Encinitas, CA 92024

Handcrafted beers lure locals to this brewery's industrial tasting room with weekend food trucks.

Saint Archer Brewing Co: "The Saint Archer journey was founded on love and commitment.  A love of craft beer and a commitment to creativity and following the road less traveled.  From the beginning, we have always believed the craft beer experience happens where art and science meet.  With that understanding, our company was founded on a unique strain of creative talent. World-class brewers. Artists and musicians. Professional surfers, skateboarders, and snowboarders… All coming together with passion and dedication to express our one true love: great, crafted beer".

Modern Times Beer
470 S. Coast Highway 101 
Encinitas, CA 92024 

Hip craft brewery with a large, stylish tasting room with 32 beers on tap.

Modern Times Beer: "This place is an intrepid cadre of brewers, coffee roasters, and culinary wizards that began as a 30bbl production brewery and tasting room in the Point Loma neighborhood of San Diego. Modern Times is named after a beautifully crazy utopian community founded in 1850, and (almost) all of our beers are named after real utopian experiments or mythological utopias... We have an outrageously tasty stable of year-round offerings, monthly special releases, and rotating seasonal beers, as well as tons of special release and one-off batches, from hazy IPAs, to barrel-aged sours, to decadent imperial stouts". 

Solterra Winery & Kitchen 
934 N Coast Hwy 101
Encinitas, CA 92024

Sleek, barrel-lined restaurant offering Mediterranean small plates & house-label wines on tap.

Solterra Winery & Kitchen: “While the majority of wineries are set among vineyards in the warm inland valleys, Solterra is situated a couple of blocks from the beach in beautiful north county San Diego. The climate is ideal for wine storage as the humidity is higher and the temperatures are a lot cooler which is ideal for aging our wines in barrel. Our goal is to offer an educational and satisfying wine experience to residents who will be able to enjoy the process and our wines locally. We have a demonstration vineyard and will be producing all of our wines on premise”. 

Carruth Cellars Urban Winery & Tasting Room
118 S. Cedros Ave #C

Solana Beach, CA 92075

Award-winning unique urban winery conveniently located in the heart of the Cedros Design District.

Carruth Cellars: “Sourcing the best grapes we can find is the first and most important step in our winemaking process. We focus our efforts on the fruit from Northern and Central California and Willamette Valley in Oregon, and thus far that has worked well for us. As soon as the grapes are harvested, they are loaded on temperature controlled trucks and are immediately transported to San Diego. We do all wine production in our urban facility by the beach!”  

Lotierzo Family Vineyards
1100 Via Di Felicita
Encinitas, CA 92024

Boutique family owned winery whose goal and focus is to create premium quality wines serving the local community. 

Robert Lotierzo, Owner: “Following a family practice that dates back to my grandfather making wines for his family and neighbors in the 1920’s and 30’s, we were excited to revive that tradition here in California after taking a number of courses in Winemaking as well as Vineyard Production and Management during 2006 and 2007. We planted our first vineyard in 2007. Initial plantings were of the Bordeaux varietals Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc and later we grafted some Nebbiolo, the Italian varietal from northern Italy”.
