Why is the brewery named Eppig?
Eppig is our co-founder Stephanie’s last name. The Eppig family’s brewing roots date back to 1866 in Brooklyn, NY. The team has resurrected the Eppig family business 150 years later and is now brewing in San Diego, CA.
Where is Eppig Brewing located?
Our production brewery is located at the corner of El Cajon Blvd. and Ohio Street in North Park, San Diego (3052 El Cajon Blvd. Suite C, San Diego, CA 92104). Enter the parking lot- just look for the beer mural on the building- head to the back of the lot and down the ramp to Eppig Brewing.
Our Waterfront Biergarten is nestled in the heart of America's Cup Harbor near Shelter Island (2817 Dickens St. San Diego, CA 92106).
Where do I park?
Please travel responsibly and consider rideshare options.
Our North Park Brewery has a small parking lot and plenty of nearby surrounding street parking.
Our Point Loma Waterfront Biergarten is conveniently located near a large public parking lot off of Shelter Island Drive. We recommend parking in the lot in front of The Brigantine Restaurant (part of the lot is metered- up to 3 hours- and the back portion of the lot is free). From there, enjoy a short, scenic walk along the harbor to our biergarten. DO NOT PARK AT POINT LOMA SEAFOODS- YOU WILL BE TOWED!

Can I reserve the tasting room for my next event?

What the heck is a crowler, and how does it work?
A Crowler is a 32 oz. one-time use, recyclable can. Choose from any Eppig beer, and we’ll fill your Crowler with fresh beer directly off of our taps. We then cap it using our Crowler sealing machine. Sorry, beer in Crowlers may not be consumed on-site.
Do you fill growlers?
We fill 32 oz., 64 oz., and 1 gallon growlers to-go. 64 oz. glass growlers are also available for purchase. Sorry, beer in growlers may not be consumed on-site.
Will you fill a blank growler or growler from another brewery?
We take great pride in the beer we produce. It is of the utmost importance that the quality and integrity of the beer we produce is maintained from the time it leaves the brewery until it is consumed.
We are pleased to fill outside growlers, provided they meet the following criteria:
· Growler is clean when it is brought in for a refill
· The container must be sealable using a screw top, cork, flip top, etc.
· Any and all other brewery emblems, slogans and info must be covered by tape or shrink wrap
Do you sell kegs?
Yes! 1/2 barrel kegs (15.5 gallons; approximately 120 16 oz. servings) and 1/6 barrel kegs (5.3 gallons; approximately 40 16 oz. servings) are available for purchase. AT THIS TIME, KEGS ARE ONLY AVAILABLE AT OUR NORTH PARK LOCATION.
To reserve your keg, we recommend contacting Eppig Brewing at least 3 days in advance. This will ensure we have the beer variety and keg on-site at the time of pick up. Walk-up keg purchases are accepted, but variety may be limited.
You must be 21 years of age or older to purchase a keg, and provide valid identification upon pick up. Every keg requires a $100 deposit, refunded when the keg is returned to Eppig Brewing. Kegs must be returned within 90 days. Keg pumps are not available at Eppig Brewing.
I'm hosting a fundraiser- will Eppig Brewing donate to my event?
We’re grateful to have the opportunity to give back to the community that supports us. We invite non-profit groups to host fundraising events at our tasting room and frequently donate beer to non-profit organizations. We receive many requests and honor as many as possible. Due to ABC restrictions, we are not able to donate gift cards or merchandise. We can only donate beer for your event if:
· You are a 501c(3) non-profit organization with federal tax ID#
· You obtain a one-day special event license from the ABC (Type 221)
To be considered, please complete and return this form to Stephanie@eppigbrewing.com.
Do you brew on-site?
Beer is produced at our North Park brewery. Our North Park tasting room doubles as our production facility, so you’ll often see our brewers in action. We brew on a 10-barrel Premier Stainless brewhouse with five 20-barrel fermenters.
