Local Teacher and Firefighter Found Oceanside's First Brewery

Oceanside Ale Works was founded in 2005 in the heart of the city of Oceanside, California and is one of the few manual brew houses in the USA. Inspired by European brewing traditions and committed to innovations inspired by venerated West Coast brewers, our ales have won many awards across the country, and locally at the San Diego County Fair.

Oceanside Ale Works is currently producing Pier View Pale Ale, San Luis Rey Red Ale and American Strong Ale along with seasonal ales - made from Old World recipes brewed with a Southern California interpretation. Meeting quality, taste and standards of consistency is a promise of integrity that only an owner/brewer can make.
