Mike Hess Brewing is one of the premier craft breweries in San Diego, a destination for aspiring small craft breweries as well as local craft beer fans and tourists alike. From humble beginnings (see History), Mike Hess Brewing has grown to include three locations in San Diego, the original “nano” in the Miramar area of San Diego, their showcase, production brewery in the mid-town area of San Diego, North Park and their satellite tasting room near the water in Ocean Beach.
Claritas Kolsch is their 2016 World Beer Cup–winning Kölsch ale. This refreshingly smooth, authentically German beer is light straw in color, infused with light fruit and bready aromatics from the German Pilsner malt, hops, and yeast. The result is a smooth and dry ale with a refreshingly clean finish.
