Burning Beard Brewing Co.
El Cajon, 2016
As brewers and business partners, Burning Beard’s Mike Maass and Jeff Wiederkehr form one of the sharpest tandems in San Diego beer, and they’ve managed to do what no one else has, short of Alpine or Nickel Beer Company: open a destination brewery in East County. You needn’t drive so far as Alpine to enjoy this family-friendly, pet-friendly, rocker-friendly establishment that serves excellent beer across the board.
