Sometimes we don't know which is bumping more: the inside or outside of Soda Bar. Either side, it's the cool place to be.

Quintana hangs with his buddy, who happens to be donning a rival brewery's shirt! We kid: our San Diego brewery scene is so strong because everyone supports one another! So rad.

Once upon a time -- in 2011 actually -- these two fellas (Faughnder on the right, and Old Tiger's Dustin Lothspeich on the left) played one of the first SoundDiego LIVE parties right here at Soda Bar. They're both still there!

Just in case you didn't believe us -- here's Lothspeich at that show, doin' his vocal/guitar thing.

...and here's Faughnder -- without the beard -- performing at the same show.

Just for kicks: Old Tiger gettin' down and doin' their thang back in the day.

...and Sledding With Tigers, who just released their new EP called, "Come On and Slam" -- it's most excellent. Go pick it up at sleddingwithtigers.bandcamp.com!
