GRAVITY HEIGHTS IS FOR EVERYONE

It’s young and brash, it’s old and dependable; it’s safe, it’s unsafe; it’s historic, it’s modern; it’s in your home, at the party, it’s here, at the pub, the gastropub, that new thing, that old dive. You can drink it with your Grandad or your shitty 21-year-old son.

You got all that?

And if you were wondering about the name, gravity is a density measurement in the beer-making process and Heights is in our address.

Now that we got that settled, let's breakdown the basics. Gravity Heights Brewery & Beer Garden is the cross-section of our passion and our profession. We created a brewery and food concept based on the same principles that drive our other restaurants—good, simple ingredients create good food (and beer, funny enough). Gravity Heights, located in the Sorrento Mesa neighborhood of San Diego, is a 12,000-square-foot brewpub that includes an expansive outdoor beer garden. Managing partner, Arturo Kassel, has teamed up with Skip Virgilio, Founder of AleSmith Brewing to lead the brewing program.

WNL HOSPITALITY

Good food, good beer, great people:  This best sums up our philosophy on creating and running our restaurants. While we believe our food and beverage are better than good, we still subscribe to the “Great Good” Food Philosophy where less is more, simpler is better and it’s the quality and freshness of the ingredients that matters most. As Ms. Julia Child once said:

“You don’t have to cook complicated or fancy masterpieces, 
just good food from fresh ingredients.”
- Julia Child
