Our History

Mission Brewery was originally established in 1913. The brewery, like most breweries of the time, went out of business during the first year of Prohibition. In 2007, Dan Selis, an avid homebrewer, re-established the brand and eventually relocated the manufacturing and the tasting room to Downtown San Diego in the Historic Wonder Bread Building in the East Village.

Mission started in a humble brewery addition to a restaurant in UTC. We soon outgrew the space and relocated to a shared warehouse brewery in Chula Vista. After a few years, we were ready to head out on our own, and secured the old Wonder Bread space that we are currently in.

In arguably the most beautiful brewery space of the most epic proportions, Mission now boasts a 2,500 sq. ft. tasting room in over 25,000 square feet of total space. Original brick and bow trusses give rise to a space that is unlike many others found here in San Diego.

Besides its historic awe, the brewery is unique in that the brewhouse is set overlooking the tasting room. When you visit our space, you will be right in the middle of the action.

This is our only location and all beer is brewed, bottled, canned and kegged on-site.

Mission has been brewing commercially for over nine years. With over 40 National and International awards under its belt, Mission is considered one of the top craft breweries in San Diego County.
