We are a husband-and-wife team. We moved from San Francisco to San Diego for work. The first night we went out for a dinner we tried some local craft beers. We were sold. Since then we have continuously been amazed by San Diego’s selection of craft beers. Then we brewed our own. It came out better than we thought and we decided to start a brewery: Itza Brewing.
Itza Brewing makes authentic, adventurous, inspired craft beer. We are located in Ocean Beach, San Diego, CA. We are on a journey to find and create new flavors and aromas to make craft beer at its best. Our beer making is fueled & inspired by ancient traditions, scientific knowledge, dedication, dreams, an adventurous mind and a palate, and hard work.
Itza Brewing name comes from our last name: Garcia Itza Niemi. Itza is an ancient Mayan name. There are only a few families left in the world with the name Itza. It is thought that the word “Itza” comes from Mayan words “itz” (“magic”) and “h(a)” (“water”). And that Itza means “Water Magician.” At Itza Brewing we strive to create magic from water: our craft beer.
Our background education and work is theoretical and intellectual. We both missed being creative. Brewing beer is both a science and an art. It combines our education and interests. We also love to photograph and do art. All photos and images at our website and social media is by us. We hope you will find your own favorite beer from our selection of craft beers.
