Welcome to the First Annual San Diego Beer Week! November 6-15 2009 will go down in San Diego Brewing history as the most awesome 10 days ever. There are over 200(!) events around town this week featuring local breweries.
Events run the gamut from beer dinners, cask nights, barrel aged tastings, to learn-to-brew classes and beer education seminars. Check out www.SDBW.org for the expanded run down. There are events every single day featuring Ballast Point brews at various places around town. In addition to great outings, we are going to do our best to make each day special at our two brewery locations.
Monday through Friday at our Scripps Ranch Brewery, Head Brewer and Distiller Yuseff Cherney will conduct a special, deluxe brewery tour at 2pm. Although Spirits are not available for tasting, Yuseff will present an olfactory sensory evaluation of Ballast Point’s Old Grove Gin and its herbal components during the tour. We will also feature an extended draft line up during the week with something special on draft each day.
Monday: Three different nitrogen beers on draft including:
- Sextant Oatmeal Stout
- Dry Hopped Schooner Ale
- A Nitro version of our Big Eye IPA
Tuesday: Apricots and Raspberries do nice things to beer
- Barmy Apricot Ale (13% ABV)
- Sour Wench Blackberry Ale
Wednesday: Properly aged versions of our biggest beers
- 2008 Sea Monster
- 2008 Victory at Sea
Thursday: A CASK of Schooner Wet Hopped Ale, brewed with hops 48 hours fresh off the vine
Friday: A CASK conditioned version of our most sought after brew
