Another local brewery located right here in the SoNo Hood, Thorn Street has received an impressive amount of recognition from San Diego locals. Thorn Street Brewing offers a large variety of different craft beers that will be on full display on 10/13.

Poor House Brew

Poor House Brew focuses on two things: making great beer and making great friends. Poor House takes pride in valuing their customers and getting to know them, making it more than just a brewery, but an amazing experience.


Made with all organic ingredients and no added sugars, JuneShine takes the new health trend of kombucha to the next level by adding alcohol! New to the neighborhood, make sure to stop by their table on your Taste of North Park tour on 10/13.

Fruit Craft

FruitCraft has taken a creative approach to their craft alcohol by fermenting and distilling some of the highest quality fermentable ingredients on earth – fruit. With flavors such as cranberry, pineapple, and even pumpkin spice, FruitCraft is definitely worth checking out.
