The Hype


Del Mar, California

This 1,200 square foot sandwich shop is where it all started! The original Board & Brew opened on April 10, 1979 in the surf and beach town of Del Mar, California.


The Del Mar Story

While the city of Del Mar may have changed a lot over the years, Board & Brew has stayed true to the core values set by founder Tom Powers. Tom continues to own and operate the Del Mar Board & Brew today, never wavering from the brand’s signature focus on quality, value and service.

Most of the Board & Brew menu originated from the Del Mar shop, including our house marinades and famous Secret Sauce. And with a team that includes several members who have been with Board & Brew for over 20 years, we’re proud of the relationships we’ve built with both our staff and our most loyal customers.
