Situated in the northwest corner of El Cajon, Burning Beard is in the heart of East County’s commercial and industrial core. We serve not only the hard working men and women of our community, but all those who seek out and appreciate top quality, expertly crafted San Diego beer.


Flanked by the 125, 52, 67, and 8 freeways, the Beard is smack dab in the middle of San Diego’s Circle of Hops, on the edge of East County’s craft brewing frontier.
