SDBW - Collaboration Flight Night

We chose the name Council because a Town Council is where people from a community, from all walks of life, viewpoints, and beliefs come together to deliberate, debate, and make decisions. We view beer in much the same way - it brings folks together over the commonality of beer, which is why we love collaborating with our fellow craft brewers to create a one of a kind beer for you all to enjoy. We’ve done some awesome collaborations over the last few years and we are excited to feature them in our SDBW Collaboration Flight on Friday, Nov. 9th at both tasting rooms (Kearny Mesa & Santee)!
