Featured Brewery of the Week—Bitter Brothers Brewing Company

May 15th, 2019 | ,

Bitter Brothers Brewing Company opened as San Diego’s first new craft brewery of 2016. Over the past three years, they have seen lots of change and growth, but they have always stayed true to their ‘bitter’ selves. The founder grew up in a glass-half-empty, Midwestern household, where being bitter was a way of life. This sparked the Bitter Brothers way—bitter is a lifestyle, not a representation of the beer.

Our founders are active members of the San Diego culinary scene. They have tasted their fair share of beer and saw an opportunity to create a brewery focused on brewing great, food-friendly beers. The flavor profiles they create showcase how balanced beers pair well with great food. Their quarterly beer dinners bring together different local chefs to highlight the magic that can be created with the right beer-food pairings.

Bitter Brothers Brewing Company is a family who treats their beers as family members themselves. Each beer has a special place in everyone’s hearts and a unique personality of their own. There are days you may like one more than the other, but just like real family members, at the end of the day, we love them all the same!

Bitter Brothers will be pouring Saturday and Sunday, August 3rd and 4th, 2019!
