Quad Alehouse is the brainchild of Tomme Arthur in collaboration with the Gaslamp Tavern in San Diego. The name comes from a play on words from a quadrangle of a college campus and the Belgian style Quad. The focus was to promote “intelligent consumption” in an atmosphere not typically found in the Gaslamp district. Varnish created the entire branding package surrounding this amazing spot. We designed the custom tap handles, the entire bar itself (a proud first), tons o’ merch as well as a gigantic wall map installation illustrating all the 100+ plus San Diego breweries and their locations. The beer of course is amazing (you are in Beer Mecca) and the food is outstanding. Next time you’re downtown San Diego, you know what to do.
