Dear Friends, . Nobody wants to write this letter. It is not an easy thing to do, to put into words how you truly feel about a situation. But, here we are. And it is with great sadness that we have to announce that Toolbox is closing. . We came into this industry with a love of beer and an even greater love of San Diego. This always has been and always will be our home and to not be able to stay breaks our hearts. But the needs of our family will always be first and foremost. We have invested a lifetime of savings, blood, sweat and tears into Toolbox. We have fought the good fight but there comes a time to move on and accept your wins and losses graciously . . We want to thank you for your loyalty, love and support over the course of our adventure. There have been many twists and turns but through them all we have truly enjoyed sharing it with you, good or bad . . We are not saying “good bye”, for now we will simply say “see you later”. We look forward to coming back to San Diego and sharing a beer alongside you as the craft beer lovers we all are. Cheers! . With much love and gratitude, Amanda & Spencer . . . . . . . . For those of you that would like to come by and maybe enjoy a beer or two with us, we will be open this weekend during normal tasting room hours. We will officially close the doors at 6pm Sunday, October 14th. Thank you again! Cheers! 🍻

“This always has been and always will be our home and to not be able to stay breaks our hearts,” reads a post on Toolbox’s Instagram page. “But the needs of our family will always be first and foremost. We have invested a lifetime of savings, blood, sweat and tears into Toolbox. We have fought the good fight but there comes a time to move on and accept your wins and losses graciously.”

Founded in 2014 by owners Amanda Elder and Spencer Peters, Toolbox started out with a three-barrel brewhouse, three six-barrel fermenters and a six-barrel bright tank. Peter Perrecone, an award-winning home brewer, was the brewery’s head brewer, who was eventually replaced by Ehren Schmidt in 2015.

According to Toolbox Brewing, the brewery’s final day will be Oct. 14.
