What better way is there to honor Tony Gwynn than to drink his very own beer at a Padres tailgate?!? In early 2014, Tony Gwynn’s team approached AleSmith to create a distinctive beer for the baseball legend to bring with him on annual trips to Cooperstown. A meeting was called at the Gwynn household, which included a sampling of AleSmith beers to identify Tony’s preferences. He wanted the beer to be “light with a kick” which he elaborated further to mean full of hop character and light in body and color.  The result of the Gwynn family’s feedback on test batches rendered a golden pale ale full of American hop flavor and aroma, with a subdued bitterness and a malty sweet finish. AleSmith San Diego Pale Ale .394, the first of its style, pays tribute to the city that Tony loved and the career high batting average that he achieved in ‘94. Discover what happens when a Hall of Fame perfectionist crafts a beer with a world-class brewery and get your first taste at the tailgate on September 20.
