Border X Brewing

8684 Avenida De La Fuente, Suite 8, San Diego

It’s OK if the words “Border X” conjure little more than question marks for you. Nano-sized Border X Brewing Company opened only a few short months ago. Adding to its relative anonymity is its extreme southerly location in Otay Mesa. Unlike breweries opening in centralized locations like North Park and Miramar, or along North County’s hop highway, State Route 78, those setting up shop on the edges of the county don’t get as much brewery-to-brewery traffic. Throw in a low-key marketing approach and it makes sense that Border X is lesser known than, say, Modern Times Beer or Benchmark Brewing Company. But all that may change very soon.

Border X has teamed with San Diego Taco Company to go in together on a shared storefront in a historic bank building located at 2196 Logan Avenue in Barrio Logan. The former will utilize it as a satellite tasting room to get its beers in front of more people. Five-to-six taps will serve Latin-inspired beers such as Border X’s El Gran Jefe, Abuelos Pale Ale, Abuelas Mexican Chocolate Stout, and Jamaica Flower Blood Saison infused with hibiscus, while appropriate Mexican fare will be cooked up by SDTC.

It’s an extension of what the two companies have been up to down south, with SDTC providing catering services at Border X’s brewery tasting room. The latter states that, as soon as the two companies teamed up, the demand for its beer rapidly outgrew the brewery’s capacity. They are in the process of growing to increase production capabilities, but have yet to implement a concrete solution.

The new space features high ceilings, original factory windows, and a recently unearthed black-and-white tile floor. Border X brought in a salvaged redwood bar topped with stone as well as original pieces from local artist David Gane Feucht. Adding to the business’ artistic appeal will be rotating art brought in from neighboring gallery, La Bodega. Border X will also team with La Bodega for art shows and other special events.
