Three years almost to the day after brewing its first beer in North Park, Eppig Brewing officially became a North County brewery in October 2019, producing the first batch at its new brewhouse and headquarters in Vista.
The brewery and taproom includes spacious tasting area, beer garden, and beer hall. Brewery specializes in IPAs and several of San Diego's best lagers. Not counting 1200 feet of outdoor seating, the Vista taproom itself is roughly the size of the entire brewery suite in North Park. So is Eppig’s new cold box, and so is its forthcoming events space, being built to resemble a German beer hall. The biggest surprise about the new location isn’t that Eppig made the move from San Diego’s urban core to the southwesternmost corner of Vista, it’s that it achieved this growth at equivalent monthly operating costs.
