Four Brewers | On Location at Urge American Gastropub
Season 2, Episode 25 – This week we’re at the ever-so-awesome Urge Gastropub in Rancho Bernardo, San Diego.
This week, we’re still in San Diego, California at our third stop, Urge American Gastropub. This show is a bit of a deviation from our normal shows in that Urge isn’t a brewery, but rather an awesome beer-geeky pub and restaurant.
Urge [bURGEr] Gastropub was founded in 2010 by owner and proprietor Grant Tondro and Zak Higson. Grant comes from a family of restaurant owners, and is a huge beer geek. Urge boasts 51 taps of craft beer, and an insane bottle list that even the geekiest beer geek would drool over. We kick off the show with a beer that’s pretty much impossible to get in Southern California, Anna from Hill Farmstead Brewery.
Urge is a restaurant after all, so naturally we’re gonna have some food on the show. Grant whipped up an awesome spread for us that included a few different burgers and some beer cheese fries. It’s all awesome stuff–Urge is no joke.
The other beers on the show include a peach sour named Hidden Barrel Peche from AC Golden (yup, Coors), a 2015 Cable Car Ale from The Lost Abbey, and a pint of 2015 YuleSmith Summer from AleSmith Brewing Co.. #Whalezbro indeed…
Grant has plans to open a brewery in Oceanside, California in late 2015 named Mason Ale Works, with Mike Rodriguez (formerly of The Lost Abbey and Boulevard Brewing) at the helm. Keep your eyes open…
Urge Gastropub is a great spot with delicious food, awesome brews and a great atmosphere. Definitely worth checking out the next time you’re in the area.
BREW THE SHIT OUT OF IT.
