Athletic Brewing Company buys second San Diego facility

Athletic Brewing Company has announced the purchase of a second brewing facility in San Diego, California, US, for an undisclosed sum.


The 107,000-square-foot brewery is located on Carroll Way, next to the non-alcoholic brewer’s existing San Diego site on Trade Street. The new facility includes 300-barrel and 150-barrel brewhouses, and will offer the versatility to produce both flagship and limited-time brews.


Athletic Brewing is planning a series of renovations and site improvements over the next 18 months. These include the installation of a new packaging line, as well as enhancements to the brewhouse, cellar and lab to meet food safety and quality requirements specific to the large-scale production of non-alcoholic beer at the company’s standards.


The company expects to begin brewing at the Carroll Way facility in late 2025. It will retain its existing Trade Street location. When the new brewery is operational, Athletic will double its US brewing capacity.

A Ballast Point taproom operated by Kings & Convicts, and connected to the Carroll Way facility, will remain open to the public during the renovation.


John Walker, co-founder and chief product officer at Athletic Brewing Company, said: “We look forward to continuing the tradition of creating amazing brews at this renowned facility and pushing the boundaries of non-alcoholic beer”.


He added: “We plan to utilise the capacity at Carroll Way to its fullest, with the addition of a brand-new, state-of-the-art packaging hall capable of filling 1,200 cans per minute and implementing some amazing brewing technology which will enhance sustainability as we continue to reduce our use of one of our most precious resources – water”.
