Oceanside’s First Brewery

Welcome.  As Oceanside’s (CA) first brewery, and one of the pioneering microbreweries in San Diego County, Oceanside Ale Works (OAW) has stood the test of time, and helped launch the great microbrewery boom in San Diego.  We strive to create not only award winning beers, but a wide variety sure to please most palates.  From our easy to drink Buccaneer Blonde or powerful American Strong Ale, to our signature IPA’s, Pirates Cove and award winning Dude, we’re sure you’ll find something bring a smile to your face.  For those who like to take a walk on the wild side, we have the Funk-n-Delicious series of flavored sours, and if you are lucky, our Daliesque…rated one of the top 25 Beers in the World by Draft Magazine.

Co-owner/head brew master, Mark Purciel (The Dude), is dedicated to using the freshest hops and finest barley to produce hand-crafted beers to exacting standards to provide a taste experience you are sure to remember.  European brewing tradition meets west coast innovation at one of the few 20 barrel manual brew houses in the country.  Enjoy our beers wherever they are sold, or drop in for a pint, or two, at our tasting room…remember to say “Hi” to the Dude.
