  • South Park’s New Brew Pub

    Feb 2, 15 • CarMama • Neighborhood InformationNo CommentsRead More »

    Just when I thought South Park couldn’t get any better, I heard about the newest additional to my favorite neighborhood and it’s right up my alley! (No, it’s not literally in an alley, but you get what I’m sayin’.) According to Uptown News, “Founded by San Diego craft beer pioneer Mr. Scot Blair, (also founder of Small Bar and Monkey Paw Pub and Brewery) Hamilton’s has served as a neighborhood bar and craft beer academy for drinkers far and wide. They continue to serve up world-class ales to novice and expert craft fans from all over the world. I have been lucky enough to take in the sights and suds as a Hamilton’s regular. Blair is at it yet again with the opening of the brand new restaurant and brewery, South Park Brewing Company, located right next door to the beloved Hamilton’s Tavern. If you are at all aware of the current locations owned and operated by Mr. Blair, you will understand the expertise and meticulous care given to each and every detail, down to the beer itself. Expect nothing less when it comes to South Park Brewing Company. “‘Innovate don’t imitate’ has been the motto since I began in these great beer-forward endeavors,” Blair said. “We aren’t a restaurant group, real estate moguls, carpet bagger or looking to cash in on a trend. We are industry leaders and innovators

    The December South Park Walkabout is coming soon, and this year, they’ve added something new. On December 1st, the First Light Ceremony will be held at 6:00 pm. On Grape Street Square the artist-inspired tree will be lit ceremoniously for the public to enjoy and to kick off the holidays. Following the tree-lighting ceremony, folks can wander around the adorable neighborhood of South Park enjoying lights, local businesses, and plenty of good food and drink. The most festive night of the year to do this type of thing is during the Winter Walkabout, this year known as, the Luminaria Walkabout. What’s a Walkabout you may be wondering? The South Park Scene website describes it as, “a fun-filled evening festival to introduce you to the shops and cafes of South Park. From Kalmia to Beech Streets, you’ll find shops open late, entertainment, specials, and surprises. Browse, explore, shop, and celebrate the independent spirit of our neighborhood. Free trolley 6-10pm.” The neighborhood lit up with festive lights is reason enough to come take a stroll. The Lumineria Walkabout is on Saturday December 7th, from 6-10 pm. See you there! Carmen
