New bartender series utilizes farm fresh ingredients


Starting July 25, notable bartenders from False Idol, George’s at the Cove, Jayne’s Gastropub and more will come to Royale Burgers & Cocktails for a new bartender series, “In Good Company,” to concoct summery beverages using local, farm produce.

The mom ‘n pop-style bar and eatery sources its ingredients from a 15-acre farm in San Diego. It just so happens this farm, Nopalito, is also owned by the same people who started Royale — Jordan and Mariah Brownwood.

Nopalito has tapped into local business with its fresh farm produce, botanicals and ingredients. “In Good Company” seeks to extend that practice and include cocktail connoisseurs.

“In Good Company” events are from 7-10 p.m. at Royale Burgers & Cocktails. Read more about the Ocean Beach farm-to-table restaurant here.
