A Brewpub's Demise
It's not every day a brewery fails in San Diego, or one of its suburbs. The Hop Daddy's Beer Blog was the first I read to report the closing of El Cajon Brewing Company. I never made it out to the East County brewpub, but judging by some of the threads on BeerAdvocate, including this one, trouble seemed to plague El Cajon Brewing almost from its opening. I never like reading about a brewery closing, but sometimes issues are bigger than the beer.
