There’s a brewery every 7.5 feet in San Diego, but somehow Del Mar managed to not have one—until now. Viewpoint Brewing Co. has opened a 7,000-square-foot brewery, tasting room, and gastropub in a warehouse with roll-up garage doors spilling your eyes out to the San Dieguito Lagoon.

Owner, chef, and homebrewer Charles Koll and executive chef Gunnar Planter (both worked under Martin Woesle at Mille Fleurs) are doing gastropub food like pretzel bao buns, steak frites, and smoked gouda mac and cheese, plus some salads and lighter fare for the area’s fit crowd. Over 20 taps will pour house beer and favorites from other local brewers. Also, look for a couple SkeeBall machines and outdoor Astroturf games.
