When I tell most people I live in Temecula, they either know about our rapidly growing wineries, our old town or Pechanga. For me, I am not too much of a wine drinker, I do like a glass every once and a while, but I personally am more of a craft beer kind of gal.
Luckily for me, Temecula breweries are popping up all over the place and with some of the best craft beer, I have had anywhere. Here is my list of the top 8 breweries you need to try Now!
Our List of the Best Temecula Breweries
Temecula is home to some of the best craft breweries in Southern California. These breweries are known for their exceptional craft brews and have gained a reputation for producing some of the most delicious and unique beers in the region.
Black Market Brewing Co.

- Pro Tip – Black Market is one of the few breweries that has a kitchen and serves food all day (most breweries bring in food trucks but it’s not every day), so plan to stop by this brewery during lunch or dinner.

One of my favorite breweries is Refuge Brewery. For the last five years, Refuge Brewery has brought Temecula a brewery full of unique beer, mostly made from local fresh seasonal ingredients.
Many people rave about their most popular drink, the Blood Orange Wit, a Belgian style wheat beer brewed with fresh blood oranges. I also really enjoy their grapefruit IPA, so I recommend you sample that one as well.
Pro Tip – Refuge Brewery Summer Nights Event is one of the most fun things you can do in Temecula in the Summer. Enjoy the cool nights of Temecula with $5 pours all night long accompanied by delicious food served from a local food truck. It is a great time and I go at least once a summer.
