San Diego based brewery, Second Chance Beer Company, is proud to be a part of a loving community of craft beer lovers who advocate for change. A community where beer brings people together. We’re more than just a brewery – we embrace diversity, value innovation, and give back without compromise.

When one guy combined his love for craft beer with the art of conversation resulting in a larger purpose. With 20 years as a senior brewmaster under his belt, Marty always longed for something more: to bring people together through his own creation of beer. With a courageous push from fellow Co-founders, Curtis and Virginia, Marty turned his thirst into a familiar place full of great intentions. The result was Second Chance Beer Company.

COCA RASA is back!

Coconut-Chocolate-Porter with the base of our award-winning Tabula Rasa. 

Great place!! Employees were super nice and helpful with giving suggestions to find a beer I'd like. They had great beers and a food truck outside with amazing burgers. I'm not from around here, but I would make the trip again!

Hands down my favorite brewery! Their Seize The Coffee IPA is my really is my favorite beer and it makes me so sad when it's not on tap. Great friendly staff, very clean tasting room and there is outdoor seating.

Very cool vibe brewery to chill with friends. “Seize the coffee” is THE BOMB 💣 The place is pet friendly so feel free to bring yours 🙂

One of my favorite brewery/tasting rooms and my favorite IPA. Get some pizza across the street at Sicilian Thing and enjoy a beer at North Park Beer Lounge.
