The fourth in line of the World Famous Hillcrest landmark restaurant group, Mo’s Universe, HBC features handcrafted beer and stone fired pizzas with bottles, growlers & kegs to-go. Our brews and pizza pies have captured the essence of San Diego’s most colorful and vibrant neighborhood, serving salads, chicken wings and pies that are perfectly orchestrated; with a focus from the water and flour to create its crust, to the fresh Italian roma tomatoes, fresh toppings and cheeses. Pouring only grains and grapes, our hunky brewsters can direct your taste buds to any one of HBC’s own nine micro-brews, or 16 all local guest taps whose own breweries have each defined the taste of their neighborhoods. Hillcrest Brewing Company has reclaimed the essence of a neighborhood gathering place with "Hoppy Hour", 7 days a week from 4-6pm, featuring $2 draught beer, flights, growlers & wine along with $2 pizza by the slice. It’s welcoming atmosphere designed to engage and stimulate interaction between guests and our brew master with a hands-on operation to maximize consistency, taste and amazingly well balanced microbrews. Open noon on weekends, 4pm weekdays, our restaurant closes at 11pm nightly, with our tap house closing at midnight.
