Driven by passion. Steeped in tradition.
The inspiration behind Dogleg Brewing Company is deeply rooted in the game of golf. Founded by four friends who met on the links, Dogleg embodies the social connection created both on the course and over a pint of delicious craft beer. After all, what better way to cap off a round with friends than to sip on a crisp lager while swapping epic golf stories? It was during a round of golf that one co-owner, Nick Lumsden, met award-winning homebrewer Jim McCaskey, and they soon formed a friendship over their passion for craft beer.
Dogleg Brewing Company offers an eclectic variety of craft beers brewed by Lumsden & McCaskey, who is also a retired U.S. Navy Commander of 23 years. Patrons can find beers to delight every flavor palette, from the refreshing Compadre Mexican Lager to the rich and fruity Dubbel Bogey Belgian Dubbel. Completing the craft beer experience is a tasting room that fuses a relaxing and rustic atmosphere with a nod to the traditions of the game.
Patrons can tee it up on the Foresight Sports GC Hawk simulator, roll putts on the indoor green or simply enjoy the views from the patio. Located in Vista, Calif., the brewery overlooks the old Carlsbad Raceway. For craft beer lovers and golfers alike Dogleg Brewing Company is the perfect (dog-friendly) spot to get your golf fix in while enjoying a pint of your favorite beer.
