Without breweries, beer drinkers would have to distill their own alcohol at home from hops, barley, and Peter O’Toole’s tears. Leave the craft to the craftsmen with today’s Groupon to Mission Brewery. Choose from the following options:

  • For $15, you get $30 worth of draft and bottled beer.
  • For $24, you get a private tasting and brewery tour for four people (a $48 value).
  • For $60, you get a private tasting and brewery tour for 10 people (a $120 value).


Despite its short tenure since its reestablishment in 2007, Mission Brewery has already snatched medals from the Great American Beer Festival and other competitions for its pantheon of brews. The tasting room houses a selection of bottled beers, such as six-packs of Bavarian-style Hefeweizen ($9.49), with hints of banana, clove, and pear, and 22-ounce bottles of the Shipwrecked Double IPA ($7.49), a strong concoction that, like walking on hot coals, benefits from a liberal use of hops. During private tastings, each guest sips at seven 3-ounce glasses of the brewery’s draft offerings, such as the Dark Seas Stout and the Blonde Kolsch-style ale. Parties then tour the grounds of the brewing chambers housed in the historic Wonder Bread Building, rumored to be haunted by multicolored polka dots.

Mission Brewery

The early 20th century birthed the first incarnation of Mission Brewery, in which California newsboys and other pre–Jazz Era scallywags tossed back their sudsy concoctions before Prohibition closed its doors. Despite its short tenure since its reestablishment in 2007, Mission Brewery has already snatched medals from the Great American Beer Festival and other competitions for its pantheon of brews. In its tasting room, patrons claim bottles or sample draft beers that include the Bavarian-style hefeweizen with hints of banana, clove, and pear; a russian imperial stout; or the Shipwrecked Double IPA, a strong concoction that, like walking on hot coals, benefits from a liberal use of hops. Located just a few blocks from the San Diego Padre's Petco Park, guests can enjoy tours through the rows of gleaming vats in the brewing chambers, which are housed in the historic Wonder Bread Building, rumored to be haunted by multicolored polka dots.
