NATURAL BRIDGE LAGER SERIES

The word 'bridge' has long been a symbol for connecting two points, whether it's a geographic distance, different eras in time or something two people can find common ground on, creating new relationships.  For us, 'Natural Bridge' means all of these things.  It tells the story of the original founders of Eppig Brewing traveling from Germany to Brooklyn, NY, establishing roots and lager brewing traditions.  We have chosen to continue on that path in San Diego, brewing a broad range of styles drawing from the rich family brewing tradition while innovating to create beers that are distinctly our own.
