The “hobby” quickly outgrew their garage and, in 2013, the brothers relocated to Vista, CA. By 2017, their beer was being distributed by Karl Strauss, Northern California’s Gyser Distribution, and Oregon’s Upstanding Distribution. They added a private event space, The Wood Shed, and an onsite canning line. In 2020, Booze Brothers opened an Oceanside tasting room and by 2021, claimed a second event space,The Vistonian, in downtown Vista and a third taproom at The Mill in Fallbrook, CA.

No Cost Tips to Save Energy and Money

(Source: SDG&E) - Looking for ways to save on your energy bill? Check out these energy tips that don’t cost you a thing.

​1. Talk with your family, friends and neighbors to find out how they conserve energy. This can help you identify additional things you can do in your home to save. You may discover hidden energy costs, figure out how to eliminate them and learn from each other's good habits.

2. If you have a second refrigerator, unplug it when it’s not in use. (Save up to $155/year)An older refrigerator uses nearly twice as much energy as new efficient models. You pay more to run your spare, older appliance than your primary one in the kitchen. If you only need the extra space around the holidays or you're a renter and can't recycle the landlord's refrigerator, simply unplug it when you don't need it.
