Burning Bears Brewing Company is situated in the heart of El Cajon, a stone’s throw from multiple shopping centers and industrial parks. It’s a diamond in the rough; the brewery space is 5,000 square feet and is complemented by a tasting room that boasts 20 taps and a jukebox. Each beers is offered in two versions (one with nitro, one with carbon dioxide), so that you can do side-by-side comparisons with your buds. But with tunes sometimes blasting at high levels, you’ll be thankful for the abundance of seating both indoors and outdoors. Adding boozy charm to El Cajon, Burning Beard should be the next brewery you take for a spin.
