About

Latchkey Brewing Company is the product of many years of dreaming, planning and honing of skills. The term "Latchkey", or "Latchkey Child" (laCHˌkē CHīld) is a child who is at home without adult supervision for some part of the day, especially after school until a parent returns from work. As Latchkey Kids, Gen-Xers, we spent a good portion of our childhood unsupervised, filling our days experimenting with music, sports, and other creative hobbies-- and sometimes finding trouble. Now, after 20 years in stable careers, we are stepping out on our own, completely unsupervised and left to our own devices (although, this time around, we're responsible adults... right?).

Latchkey Brewing Company fills a much needed niche in the San Diego brewing space. While big, bold, hopped-up ales are a local favorite, we also focus on more nuanced classics, designed as easy drinkers on hot days and can be easily paired with food. Our maniacal focus on quality and consistency is at the heart of everything we do.
