Where the West Coast mashes in with the Emerald Isle

Where West Coast meets Emerald Isle

beer We have been experimenting with different beer styles at home and work, getting closer to an initial lineup of house beers for Half Door. Without a doubt the lineup will include IPAs, paying homage to what has made San Diego famous in the world of craft beer. And of course we'll have some traditional Irish stouts and lagers, plus some session-able beers that will be a perfect pre-game refreshment before heading down the block to Petco Park to cheer on the Padres.

But we are approaching everything at Half Door with our Irish ancestry and brethren in mind – and that means we'll have our own Old World twist on everything brewed or stewed at HDBC. From historical explorations of pre-Guinness brewing*, to modernized California-friendly adaptations of traditional Emerald Isle grub.

Check the blog often as we share some in-depth R&D as we develop the food & suds for Half Door!

* What came before Guinness?? Wasn't the all to familiar stout something the Irish have brewed and drank since the dawn of fermented grain? Actually, no. Here's the untold story.
