Warfighter Brewing Company to Open in San Carlos.

August 23, 2013


A Micro-Brew with a Purpose.

I haven't featured a local business or restaurant in quite a while on the blog, but this story was too good to pass up.  (Credit to Paolo Lucchesi of SF Gate for the scoop on this).   In less than a month, Warfighter Brewing Company will open its doors in San Carlos.   What's the twist that makes Warfighter different than your typical California microbrewery that have sprung up in droves over the last decade?  Warfighter has a distinct armed-forces theme, with anticipated brews such as Honor IPA, Pride cream stout, and Sacrifice cream ale, according to their pre-release info on Yelp.

But the term “service” is far more than just a theme at Warfighter — it's woven into the DNA of the establishment.  According to the article, the impetus behind the brewery is not only to give armed forces veterans a place to connect, but also provide them with a place of employment.  A safe haven, if you will.   From their website:

A WAR FIGHTER  isn't just a person who served during combat operations, it's a statement of the American fighting spirit.   Both a verb and a noun, it embodies the soul of our great Nation that has been tempered through the bravery of men and women who heeded the call to arms, in every ‘clime and place' that she's needed them. The word knows no gender, race, creed, color,  or political affiliation, it simple describes a person who is willing to put the needs of many over the needs of his or her own…

This is a business that San Carlos should be proud to call their own, and here's to hoping it will be a tremendous success.  Warfighter Brewing Company will be located at 360 Industrial Road, Unit E in San Carlos.

When is the grand opening?  Quite fittingly, it is scheduled for September 11, 2013.
