A deep appreciation for the craft

Long-Time Support for a San Diego Legacy

The San Diego region is home to among the most diverse and unique craft beer communities in the world.  Omar Passons has been a leader in supporting and championing the impact of this vibrant community on the economic growth of the region, the availability of quality jobs and a more than $850 Million direct economic impact.

Omar appreciates support from internationally respected figures such as Greg Koch of Stone Brewing Co. and Peter Zien of AleSmith Brewing and is grateful for the entire #Brewers4Omar contingent.

Whether it is the success of craft beer periodicals like Westcoaster magazine, the success of life sciences auxiliary companies like White Labs, a yeast manufacturer, or the significant benefit in attracting and retaining talent, craft beer has helped elevate the San Diego region in diverse ways.
