Take it from the tap: Fourpenny House opens in La Mesa
Fourpenny House recently opened in La Mesa. Below is some information regarding the U.K.-inspired brewpub.
Go: Fourpenny House
Know: While revered for its whiskeys, Scotland has produced sturdy ales for centuries. Fourpenny’s owner, Peter Soutowood, salutes that tradition at his new brewpub.
Whoa!: With one of the region’s tiniest commercial breweries, head brewer Davey Landeros makes his Scottish Pub Ale (5.5% ABV) on a two-and-a-half-barrel system.
Pro: Four or five house beers augment an impressive bottle list, which has a Eurocentric tilt: the highlights include Saison Dupont, Tripel Karmeliet and the Duchesse de Bourgogne. The full bar also offers wine and — was there any doubt? — Scotch.
Land ho: There may be no peat bogs or windswept moors in East County, yet Fourpenny’s staff brings a touch of the U.K. to La Mesa’s Village. Soutowood’s family roots are in Scotland, while general manager, Dave Pressly, is a British import.
