Council Brewing Is Closing

council brewing is closing

After over five years in business (with locations in Kearny Mesa and Santee,) Council Brewing is closing.  Known for pouring award-winning barrel aged sour beers, the husband-and-wife owned craft brewery broke the bad brew news Wednesday on its Facebook page.

Referencing rising operational costs and “over-saturation of the brewery market,” Council Brewing Co. co-founder Curtis Chism said in the post, “we’ve had too long of a stretch of declining sales that we can’t sustain any longer.”

Curtis and Lis Chism will close the Santee tasting room Friday, December 14th, followed by a farewell party at their Kearny Mesa location, Saturday, December 15th, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Additionally, from now until the 15th, Council Brewing Company will be selling ALL beers for $5 (cash only) with proceeds benefiting the San Diego Food Bank.

Way to go out with class, and good luck to the Chisms on their next move.
