It was a long, winding road that brought North Park Beer Co out from the garage and into the spotlight.  Our Head Brewer and Proprietor, Kelsey McNair, arrived in San Diego 20 years ago to live the California dream and design video games with his friends.  But it wasn’t long before his love for cuisine, chemistry, and craft found an outlet in the city’s fledgling beer scene which teemed with exciting, bold new flavors and inspired talent. His homebrewing career was nothing short of meteoric, and soon his Hop-Fu! IPA had become the most award winning homebrew recipe in history, in the most competitive category — the American IPA. Over the next decade, the awards accumulated, the name North Park Beer Co was established and run out of his North Park residence, and plans for the commercial-scale brewery took shape. What followed was an uphill battle spanning several years to raise capital, find the right location, and build out a brand new taproom and brewing facility.  Enduring setback after setback, Kelsey and his wife, Amanda, persisted, leaving behind their careers in game design to fulfill their dream of opening the business. For all of the McNairs’ efforts we are thankful… thankful that their vision of a community focused brewpub — dedicated to the preservation of Kelsey’s passion for craft and quality — has materialized. Since we opened our doors in June 2016, we feel North Park Beer Co has become a fitting tribute to its namesake neighborhood, where the McNairs and their daughter Ruby continue to make their home. Truly a place made for the very best ales and lagers, and our favorite friends and neighbors.
