This past weekend we visited Border X Brewery’s 2nd location in Barrio Logan. Their new location is truly an amazing space with years and years of history within it’s walls. The space was built in 1923 in the Mission Revival Style as the San Diego Trust and Commerce Bank. In 1927, the bank of Italy took over San Diego Trust and Commerce Bank which was later reorganized as the Bank of America in 1931, serving the area until 1948. The property became a Porkyland Tortilla factory in 1977 then to become a Roberto’s Taco Shop and now a brewery. (bank < brewery!!!)
^^they were all really good. but my favorite was the abuelitas chocolate stout.^^
^^tacos and beer. life is good. ^^
So, we’re super excited that a brewery has opened up near our neighborhood. There’s so many amazing old buildings and houses around these parts, nothing makes me happier to see them revived and given a new life. And now, I feel like a complete fool, I forgot to take a photo of the building from the outside, duh! You’ll just have to go there for yourself. It’s the big orange building on the corner of Logan and Sampson.
