Tell us about your company.

Second Chance is not just the name of our Company and award-winning beer, it’s an impassioned mission and a declaration of independence. Approximately 70%+ of everything you see in our Carmel Mountain Ranch Brewery & Tasting Room and North Park Beer Lounge is living its “Second Chance” through recycling, repurposing, and upcycling. Our passion for second chances extends beyond décor and operations, too. Our "giving Second Chances" charitable program is one of the most generous in our industry. We partner with a variety of local and national non-profits ranging from animal rescues to breast cancer and organ donation awareness. Second Chance also is our Co-Founders' desire to venture beyond their corporate worlds and be #indiebeer in one of the World's most-decorated brewing cities. The name reminds us all that every day can be a new opportunity to savor the present moment, and hey – while you are at it, one of our world-renowned beers. We are proud to be an independent craft brewery in San Diego, California. Come. Seize. Sip. Enjoy.
