Escondido Brewing Company is a historically small brewery (> 300 sqft), but that doesn't mean they don't go big on flavor. Esco brews small batch beers that afford the microbrewery (emphasis on micro) a chance to brew a variety of craft beer styles.
Their outdoor patio is a great place for relaxing over a cold pint. It's also (leashed) dog and kid friendly, so don't skip out on visiting just because you made a few adult decisions. Besides the patio picnic tables, seating is available at the bar. Or if you prefer, you can take your brew over to the lawn games and wager off a few rounds if you're feeling confident.
Oh, did we mention that EBC is attached to a Pet Food & Supply shop? Yes, the 1.5 bbl brewhouse was built out by the owners themselves right in a friend's brick & mortar supply store. And, while we can't be sure, we thought we saw some homebrewing books laying around the taproom for patrons to read.
