The Brew House at Eastlake closed its doors for good a couple days ago, leaving many more San Diegans out of work.
On the morning of Monday, October 1, some employees and patrons were surprised to find a sign on the front of the popular brewery/restaurant: "The Brew House at Eastlake is closed. Thank you for your patronage" was all it read. Some employees found out they'd lost their jobs via email Monday morning.
When San Diegans and Chula Vistans filled the Eastlake Tavern & Bowl to support American Idol contestant Jessica Sanchez in May, some of the overflow crowd spilled into the brewhouse. The brewery’s happy hour brought in many locals. Tuesdays drew a crowd of patrons for a good deal on tacos. On Chargers game days, people came in wearing the team colors to watch the game.
The Brew House was a seemingly successful company; its closure has left some in the community with unanswered questions.
