Saint Archer’s Leucadia Tasting Room Set To Open In MayEat + Drink Getting tasting rooms open in Encinitas hasn't been easy...
Saint Archer Brewing Co., one of San Diego’s most coveted craft breweries, is opening a new tasting room in the beach community of Leucadia. The tasting room design will be simplistic with a mix of wood and concrete and will showcase local artists including photography from Saint Archer’s brand ambassadors.
Opening this month, the new 1,200 sq. ft tasting room will feature 30 taps offering their core beer selections and specialty brews only available at the new tasting room and the main brewery, and will be located at 978 N. Coast Highway 101.
With ties to surf culture, the Leucadia tasting room is a natural fit as Saint Archer has been bringing artists, musicians, professional surfers, skateboarders, and snowboarders together, showing their passion and dedication to express their love for great, crafted beer.
The 30 taps will pour Saint Archer staples like the Blonde Ale, White Ale, Pale Ale, Mosaic IPA, Mexican Lager, Citra Session IPA, Coco Stout and more. Cans, bombers and crowlers will also be available for beer to go.
Getting Beer Into Encinitas Hasn’t Been Easy
The City of Encinitas has not made it easy for breweries to set up shop in the community. Culture Brewing was able to get their tasting room opened in the last year, and now Saint Archer is right around the corner – so we have good momentum! Hopefully they keep it up.
More Than Just Beer
The thing we love most about the tasting room concepts is that they really become gathering places to get together and end the day with a sense of community. They aren’t party spots; they’re the place where you have just enough beer to create good conversation and connect with friends before heading home. We imagine that’s why Encinitas has allowed them to finally open – they’ve realized that tasting rooms aren’t enough rowdy bar (Encinitas already has plenty of those!).
In the coming months, the tasting room will host art shows and screenings just in time for summer and also be partnering with non-profit organizations including SurfAid, Pink Boots Society, and more . In the future there will be a merchandise room that will be an ode to Roy’s Market, which was the original use for the coastal location in the 1930s.
See you there!
