If you aren’t familiar with Duck Foot Brewing Company yet, it's time to get caught up. Known for its gluten-reduced brews, it has become a celebrated San Diego craft brewery since it opened less than a year ago in June 2015. In that short period of time, popularity has spiked so much that “the Quacks”, Matt Delvecchio, Brett Goldstock and head brewer Derek Wasak are making their beer available for the masses via bottles at the brewery and in stores starting in April. To celebrate the milestone, the brewery invites fans to come to its bottle launch party on Saturday, April 16!
Initially Duck Foot will be making three of its mostly widely-acclaimed brews available in bottles - “Choconut Lust” (chocolate hazelnut porter), “The Contender” (West Coast-style IPA), and “The Looker” (California blonde ale). The Barrel-aged “Ukranian Imperial Stout” will also be available in bottles at a future date yet to be determined. They will be sold in 22 oz bottles and are all still gluten-reduced and celiac-friendly for anyone sensitive to gluten or just looking to ditch the bloat.
“It’s not always convenient to come into our brewery and tasting room when you want to enjoy our beer, so we’re really excited to be able to make it even easier and have a wider reach with bottles so that more of our fans have access to our beer anytime they want,” says Matt Delvecchio, Head Quack/Founder. “We couldn’t be more pleased about how popular our beer has become since we started this last year and we’re looking forward to what this year will bring, including introducing even more bottled beer varieties to the current selection.”
To kick it off and celebrate, Duck Foot will be having a bottle launch party on April 16 from 6pm to 10pm at its brewery and tasting room located at 8920 Kenamar Dr #210, San Diego, CA 92121, that will be open to the public. A portion of all proceeds from the event will go to the Surfrider Foundation and attendees will have the opportunity to purchase Duck Foot beer while playing games, as well as enter the raffle for the chance to win some pretty outstanding prizes, especially for beer lovers and those into skateboarding, surfing and the outdoors.
