About: North County San Diego is one of my favorite craft beer destinations. Over the years, I have had some of the best beers of my life there, so I’m always on the look out for new breweries opening–such as Burgeon Beer Company.

Burgeon Beer Company has been on my radar since I learned Anthony Tallman (head brewer at Back Street Brewery in Vista) co-founded it and would be its head brewer. When Tallman brewed for Rough Draft Brewing in San Diego in 2013, he helped them win medals at beer competitions in San Diego and Los Angeles. His beers are innovative, well made, and delicious.

Located in a modern business park just south of McClellan-Palomar Airport, Burgeon’s brewhouse and tasting room are inside a vast warehouse. The tasting room is beautiful–adorned with a living wall of ferns and tropical plants, slabs of unfinished cedar, tall dried tree trunks, weathered boulders–like an indoor beer garden. The long, finished burl bar top is magnificent.

Hand-made tables and benches, constructed from heavy pieces of repurposed metal and thick cuts of polished cedar, provide plenty of seating. Under the living wall cozy nooks have been built for a different kind of seating. Great music plays in the background, and for sports fans, two large flat-screens let you watch TV. Lighting is soft from the fluorescents and overhead Edison bulbs, and during the day, natural through skylights and front windows.

A lot of thought and money has gone into the design and construction of this brewery. The final product is a beautiful interior space with plenty of open space for beer lovers to gather, relax, and enjoy fresh beer.

What I Drank: Noble Miner (5% ABV/14 IBU), a Grisette. Similar in style to a farmhouse Saison, Noble Miner smells like spring–earthy, citrusy, and spicy. The taste is similar to a Saison, but different. This beer has a nice tartness, it’s light bodied, and sparkles with silvery effervescence. I like how it finishes: clean, and dry. A thirst-quenching beer for warm days.

Likes: Excellent ambience, reasonably-priced beers, and a friendly staff who were highly knowledgeable about the beers they pour. Dog friendly and kid friendly. Clean, classy restrooms.

Dislikes: None.

Verdict: The beers at Burgeon are innovative and varied, served inside a beautifully designed and decorated tasting room. Highly Recommended.
