Located next door to Eppig (which was closed), and across El Cajon Boulevard from Tiger! Tiger!, Pariah has a somewhat hipster dive bar vibe to it; it is small and dark with a small bar and minimal seating - I grabbed a stool along the wall-counter (Is this a thing?). That said, their beers are superb and plentiful, with plenty of taps and several excellent IPAs.
Friendly service and some friendly hipsters made for a pleasant visit. You could include this in your North Park Beer Tour as Belching Beaver, Rip Current and Falls Brewery are all in stumbling distance - or jump on Bus No. 2. If you like IPAs, this is the place. Hope to hit their neighbor in a future visit.

My favorite brewery in the SD area. Such a chill spot with killer tunes and some of the friendliest staff and brewers/owners. Focusing on Hazy NEIPA ales and dessert stouts and knocking it out of the park. Their beers are very much on par with Tree House, Trillium, River Roost, Austin Street etc... They don’t barrel age but if ever decide to I know it’d be magic. Look forward to another visit

I've been going to Pariah since they opened in 2017 and the beers just keep getting more clean, more flavorful and more unique. Definitely the most quality produced beer in SD right now. The bar staff is incredibly knowlegable and friendly. My personal favorites are their sour Berliner Weisse "Passion of the Kiwi" and their "Dorcha Extra Stout". Keep an eye out for these guys and a must visit while in SD. Hope these guys continue to kick ass.

13 beers on tap and all of exceptional quality and thought. Nothing redundant or over played, everything in its place obviously for a reason. Warm environment, warmer service without lacking of knowledge. Thankful to have this place locally.

This place is awesome! Some of the most interesting and über flavorful beers I’ve ever had! Fun playlist, extremely friendly service, dogs welcome, games for kiddos (and adults), food trucks on weekends. Big bonus that they have different glassware for every type of beer! HIGHLY reccomend.

this place is super cool, part of that brewery incubator thing sandwiched between eppig and a hard kombucha place, such a cool idea for a business to have these guys come in and start their breweries in rented space with rented equipment, takes some of the financial scare out of the process, and lets some amazing beer flourish. this place is tiny, seating for no more than maybe 20, with some nice breeze blowing in, low light, and a some art on the walls, but pretty minimal. the digital beer menu shows us a ton of selections, really a remarkable amount of options here. the beer blew us away, we had a really cool southern hemisphere double ipa, a curious breakfast brew on nitro, and a killer wit, each had something or two interesting about them, and all of them were incredibly good, shockingly good really, i didnt expect the uniqueness and quality to be so high, and left here feeling so glad that we stopped in randomly. the beer was fantastic, i look forward to seeing how far they can take it, it was some of the more memorable beer we had on our whole san diego trip, to be honest. good service, cozy space, but all about the beer. definitely make a point to check this place out!

Small brewery sandwiched in between 2 other breweries (my favorite of the 3) Bar seats maybe 8. Some tables and counter and roll-up window. A dozen beers on tap about half IPAs and DIPAs (as it should be). Cool vibe.

Pariah Brewing is located in North Park area of San Diego in an interesting building. It's shared with two other breweries which all had a similar vibe. This is a small-ish brewery that had a small bar area with some more seating along the roll-up window and side wall. I did like the Pariah sign on the wall. Very cool.

I had a sampler of two beers. It's a nice local spot to hang out.
