Northern Pine Brewing is a little taste of home and the great Northwest here in Oceanside, San Diego. Like many other craft beer fans and home brewers, opening a brewery has been a long-time dream for co-founders Aaron Ortega, Anne Ortega, and Robert Parsons. When Bobby and Aaron came up with the idea to be professional brewers, they knew they wanted to give back through their beer, but they also wanted their beer and their brewery to represent them. It was quickly decided that the brewery had to be focused on the outdoors. They wanted to bring what they love most about their upbringings to Southern California and that is what inspired the name and the concept of Northern Pine Brewing. Their mission is to combine their passion for craft beer with their desire to give back to the community.
