Inspired by a group of friends who are always in search of great food, quality craft beers, and an overall good time, Common Theory will appeal to the local crowd and the casual connoisseur from other parts of San Diego by featuring 30-34 craft beers on tap. The rotating selection of craft beers will derive from many of the local San Diego breweries, breweries up and down the coast of California, and sometimes from other parts of the states. Our philosophy in beer selection is that there is always something available for everyone, but if there isn’t we will try our best to find you a beer that suits the palate. Please note that apply the literal meaning of “rotating selection”; although our beer lines are designated to certain styles, the brewery and beer names will always rotate!!! Being in the Craft Beer Capital of the world, we strive to keep the draft beer system clean by performing regular maintenance and cleaning in order to pour our customers a clean, crisp, and tasteful glass of beer.
Our kitchen will revolve around the theory of simplicity, offering a menu of California cuisine that focuses on enhancing natural ingredients using contemporary cooking sensibilities of different ethnic backgrounds. The culture clash of our Korean-Chinese-Mexican-American background will showcase itself in true genuine form throughout the environment, food, and drinks; making it easy to call ourselves Californian!
Our goal is to provide customers with a relaxing and fun atmosphere to enjoy simple-straightforward food at reasonable pricing, paired with a variety of craft beers and cocktails to come.
