Culture Brewing coming to downtown Encinitas

While Encinitas remains one of the few cities in North County not to have its own craft brewery (or several of them), we're open to tasting rooms for other cities' finest.

First was Lost Abbey's Confessional in Cardiff, now comes Solana Beach's Culture to downtown 101.

San Diego Eater:
A North County tipster spotted a notice indicating that Culture Brewing Co. is planning to expand into downtown Encinitas, and the brewery confirmed that it has signed a lease for a space on South Coast Highway that's just over 1,000-square-feet.

The local craft brewery's original production facility and tasting room is in Solana Beach, and Culture opened a satellite tap room in Ocean Beach in 2014. A rep for the brewery told Eater that it is currently going through the permitting process, with the goal to be open in Encinitas by January 2017. Beer won't be brewed on site, but patrons will be able to stop in for tasters, pints and growler fills of Culture beer.

  3. Another satellite brewery. No ABC liquor license required for it.

  4. Culture will be a great addition to Encinitas. They operate a very nice tasting room on Cedros with frequent showings by local artists. I'm sure there will be haters but this is not another bar. I doubt they will stay open late.

  8. A bar is a bar and council, if they allow this, are losers. The stench of patrons at our homeless shelter library is something else. The freaks sleeping off there high at cottonwood creek park is delightful, and to consider another drunk hang out? Get serious council and notice how bad our roads are as you neglect them for a 3 million dollar lifeguard tower!

    1. Drunks don't pay $8 a pint for microbrew and yell at homeless people when you see them as the more you yell at the them the more they feel like carrying on down to Elitist Solana Beach and Del Mar where they really belong.

    2. It seems to me that in this day and age people can't do anything without a drink in their hand or in their belly. Great values to teach our children.

    5. So true 7:36 it's like they know it's the only incentive some people have to leave the house but they market it as "culture".

  10. Put up the we want to be like Huntington Beach sign.

    I am voting against any Councilmember who voted for more bars or increased density.

  11. Tear down the bars dealing meth and serving old men enough to tumble into 101 traffic. Give this new place one of those licenses.
