Thorn St. Brewery is an amazing neighborhood brewery in San Diego, CA. With a cool wooden bar, stools, and sweet open air patio in the back, this is the perfect place to spend on a Sunday afternoon (or any other day for that matter). Tucked down off of a side street, away from more of the madness along 30th St., Thorn St. is the ideal place to go and get a great beer, get some grub from the daily food truck that is parked outside, and chat it up with some of the neighborhood locals.
Every Rose has its Thorn St. Brewery
The larger room in the back is where the brew magic happens, so if you walk in, and think it’s just a tiny little place, just keep in mind that there’s more to be discovered. A good lineup of a wide variety of beers, and a warm, friendly atmosphere makes this place worth seeking out. Located just around the corner from Modern Times makes for a really good little mini-brewery crawl prior to trekking a bit further down the block to some of the great beer spots in the city like Toronado. This place definitely has that neighborhood feel, like you are almost guaranteed to know people when you go there. I’m sure if I lived in this area, I’d spend as much time bellying up to the wooden bar, as I would spend lounging on my couch. I can’t wait to go back again when the back patio is hopping with people, and I can sample more of their tasty brews. Don’t miss this place! Cheers!
