AleSmith Hall of Fame: Imperial .394 Release
Originally a faint idea dreamt up by Tony Gwynn and Peter Zien, the now imperial version of their collaboration, San Diego Pale Ale .394, will make an appearance in our 20th Anniversary Specialty Release Series. All proceeds from this beer will go towards raising funds for the Tony Gwynn Museum which will honor this hall of famer and raise money for TAG (Tony & Alicia Gwynn Foundation) at AleSmith’s new facility.
HALL OF FAME: TONY GWYNN IMPERIAL SAN DIEGO
PALE ALE .394 (ABV 9%)
AleSmith Brewing’s Hall of Fame version of the legendary Tony Gwynn San Diego Pale Ale .394 pays tribute to the one and only Mr. Padre and his commitment to excellence. Just like its predecessor, this “imperial” or “double” .394 is bursting with even more American hops, lending the beer a diverse palate of citrus, tropical fruit, and pine. The bottle is decorated with real gold and includes the special Tony Gwynn HOF/’07 replica signature from his 2007 Hall induction. Tony envisioned this beer in early 2014 and AleSmith is honored to make another of his dreams come true.
“Tony Gwynn was incredibly proud to be a member of the San Diego community; he impacted lives all over the world. He was the heart, soul, and flavor of San Diego for so many years and now you can taste his passion with every sip.”
Starting Monday, April 27th at 11:00am PST, you will be able to purchase up to (4) four bottles of Hall of Fame: Imperial San Diego Pale Ale .394 via Brown Paper Tickets (prices exclude tax and BPT service fee).
