As I mentioned yesterday, on Sunday I flew down to San Diego for a couple of days to attend a CSBA meeting. My first stop was to visit Tomme Arthur at Port Brewing‘s new production facility, which they bought a little over a year ago from Stone Brewing. I wanted to see what they’d done to the place and also sample Tomme’s wonderful beers at the source.
The lobby of the brewery has been fashioned like a ship with portholes looking into their conference room.
The original paintings from the Lost Abbey’s beautiful labels hang behind the tasting bar.
Aging beer in wooden barrels line the brewery and are fit into nooks and crannies throughout.
Tomme’s daughter Sydney, who’s just over a year-old, came to work.
