About New English Brewing Co.
This brewery was founded by Simon Lacey, who wanted to create a brewery with an emphasis on English and American-style beers and ales. This brewery was founded in 2007, just before craft breweries exploded in popularity. Using his experience of growing up with the pub culture in northwest England, he crafted an ambiance, as well as a slew of amazing beers.
Since opening, New English has become one of the premier breweries in San Diego. They’ve expanded, added new brewing equipment and barrel fermenters, and began crafting new beers in their 9,000-sq.-ft. facility.
