I’m going to spoil my own blog by telling you what I think right off the bat, Mother Earth Brewing is great. It has quickly become one of my favorite of the newer brewers that have joined the impressive list of San Diego breweries in the past couple of years. However, there is a slight problem. I have no one to blame for this but myself, I just don’t live close enough. Mother Earth Brewing is located in Vista, California which is a not-insignificant drive from where I live in Mission Valley. This is the same hindrance that I typically encounter when it comes to having the opportunity to check out any one of the great brewers located in the North Country area of San Diego.
Aside from the excellent beers available at the brewery and the tap house, I’d also like to say that the homebrew store is pretty exceptional as well. An excellent selection of grains, malts, White Labs yeast, hops and a database that can help you reconstruct any of the beers that Mother Earth makes. Staffed by friendly and knowledgeable people they even offer free classes on the weekend for home brewers of every level. I highly recommend stopping by if you are in the area.
