After an exceedingly long and exhaustive quest for the perfect location, we are absolutely thrilled to announce that we have located a suitably rad spot for a North County tasting room.

Perched conveniently along the 101 on the north side of downtown Encinitas, this den of tasty pleasures will have room for about 150 elegant beer connoisseurs seated around a glorious horseshoe shaped bar, in cozy booths, on majestic lounging steps, and around a swanky indoor fire-pit. The aesthetic of the Far West Lounge will be luxurious mid-century tropical, complimented by some of our psychedelic DIY design and art installations. 32 taps will pour a ceaseless supply of exceedingly tasty beers brewed at the Lomaland Fermentorium and our planned locations in L.A. and Anaheim. Outrageously sexy merchandise, coffee bags and cans, beer to-go, and League/BPT pick-ups will also be on offer.

Once open, The Far West Lounge should prove to be a marvelous and complementary addition to an already killer neighborhood, and we couldn’t be more psyched on where we've landed (470 S. Highway 101, to be precise). More details and info on the timeline coming soon.

470 S. HWy 101 is coming up as Solana Beach not Encinitas?
Just wondering if that is correct.

Regarding the address, Apple Maps SUCK!
Google Maps indicates it will be right across the street from the La Paloma theatre in Encinitas on Coast Highway. Nice.

More than Stoked to roll out the welcome mat to this fine brand of Beer! Bring it on!
The Google map is correct, 470 S. Coast Highway 101, across the street from La Paloma and under the Encinitas sign!

It is good to see Modern Times arriving in Encinitas. I hope MT keeps the old “Summer Girl” sign at this location as it is a classic reminder of old Encinitas back in the day when local businesses were on this block across from the La Paloma. It would be good if La Paloma got a permit to have a 21+ movie night and you could bring in your six pack of Modern Times for a classic movie showing. The fire station is right behind you, so you should have a “fire alarm”  special when their alarm goes off. Parking is tight here, so please respect the neighbors when you park in their neighborhood. Better yet, take the Coaster and walk across to Modern Times. You could do a beer tour from Solona Beach to Oceanside.  I look forward to your opening in 2017!
