Description

Arthur, previously of Cerverceria Cruda and Pizza Port, founded Lost Abbey Brewing Company, San Marcos, CA in the original Stone Brewing location. Lost Abbey began as one entity under the Port Brewing banner which also included Pizza Port as well as Arthur's Hop Concept. Since this recording, Arthur established the Tiny Bubbles and Kharisma hard tea lines as well as expanded operational footprint at the San Marcos site. In 2023, he vacated the San Marcos location to share brewing and tap room space with Mother Earth Brewing in Vista, CA. Lost Abbey has three tasting rooms in addition to the Vista location (Cardiff, San Elijio Hills in San Marcos, and San Diego.)
