Outside the original Thorn Street Brewery location for Thorn Brewing Co. in San Diego, California

Thorn Brewing Co.

Thorn Brewing Co. began in North Park in 2012 as the Thorn Street Brewery. The San Diego neighborhood is known for folks who pride themselves on walking or riding their bikes to get locally produced food, growing their own fruits and vegetables and, of course, brewing their own beer.

Thorn Brewing became known for being the ultimate neighborhood brewery. Their success led them to open Thorn Barrio Logan in 2017. That historic neighborhood is filled with art, culture and amazing people. This location boasts a 30-barrel brewhouse, canning line, and tasting room from where the brewery has been able to grow their distribution throughout Southern California as well as internationally.

The latest addition to the Thorn Tribe is Thorn Mission Hills. Nestled in the heart of Mission Hills, this tasting room is the perfect place to spend the afternoon hanging with friends enjoying a craft beer. Mission Hills, like our other locations, is both dog and family-friendly too.

Independence in craft beer is incredibly important to Thorn Brewing and to the craft beer community as a whole. This tight-knit, craft community was founded on the principles of quality versus quantity, passion versus profit, and being a positive impact on the neighborhoods where we live and work.

North Park Taproom

Thorn Street Brewery in North Park is a great spot for any gathering. From birthday parties to soccer parties, to work events we’ve got you covered. Our back room is large enough to house 30-60 guests with an open-air roof, perfect for our San Diego weather. Gather with your friends and family to celebrate while overlooking our 7-barrel brew system. There is also a bar with 9 taps of your favorite beer and you are welcome to bring in any outside food or grab food from our daily food trucks. This space can be booked for private events or if your guest count is under 30 people, we can reserve a couple of tables for your group. Additionally, this room has A/V capabilities.

Barrio Logan Taproom

At Thorn Barrio Logan, we just opened up a gorgeous event space on our mezzanine that overlooks our whole production brewery. This upstairs space can hold anywhere from 30-100 people with flexible seating and table arrangement. Your guests will enjoy beer from our bar upstairs with 4 taps and for private events, we serve red and white wine from Fallbrook Winery, a local vintner (both locations can serve wine at private events). This space is perfect for your wedding rehearsal dinners, birthday parties, corporate events and more.

Mission Hills Taproom

Situated in the heart of Mission Hills, our newest tasting room has an outdoor patio, lounge area, plenty of comfortable seating, 16 rotating taps, and even skeeball. Kids and dogs are welcome along with outside food. Reserved seating is available if you contact us ahead of time too.

Thorn Mission Hills is currently available for small parties (reserved tables) or full buy-outs.

Thorn Brewing remains committed to brewing high-quality and innovative beer. For more information, visit the brewery website at thorn.beer.
