AleSmith is Here!

This month is off to a great start with the highly anticipated arrival of AleSmith's award winning brews!

Celebrating their 20th anniversary this year, AleSmith has grown steadily over the years to become one of the hottest and most well respected craft breweries in the country. In 2014, they were voted #1 Best Brewery in the World and #1 Brewery in California on RateBeer.com. Their wide range of products from West Coast hop-centric brews to traditional English and Belgian style ales such as Grand Cru, ESB, Wee-Heavy, and Olde Ale illustrates the versatility and capability of this San Diego brewhouse. AleSmith's Barrel-Aged series includes some of the most highly buzzed about beers and nearly all of them are rated 100 points on Ratebeer.com including the barrel-aged version of their famous Speedway Stout.

With an even bigger and better facility opening this year, AleSmith will have the capacity to produce over 100,000 barrels per year, allowing much room for growth and expansion in the years ahead. Taking into account the solid reputation they have built for themselves in the past two decades, there is no doubt they will remain at the top of the craft beer charts.

Be on the lookout for these AleSmith brews at your local retailer or watering hole:

IPA - It’s Pretty Awesome. A San Diego classic, AleSmith IPA showcases the versatility of American hops. Aromas of grapefruit and tangerine lead into an abundance of fresh pine and tropical fruit notes followed by a crisp, resinous bitterness. The complex hop profile is supported by a firm malt presence to create an incredibly flavorful and well-balanced IPA. Available in 22oz bottles and draft
 
Speedway Stout - Speedway Stout’s ominous, pitch-black appearance has become a hallmark of this modern-day classic. Chocolate and roasted malts dominate the flavor, supported by notes of dark fruit, toffee, and caramel. A healthy dose of locally-roasted coffee from Ryan Bros. Coffee, Inc. added to each batch brings out the beer’s dark chocolate flavors and enhances its drinkability. Despite its intensity, Speedway Stout’s fine carbonation and creamy mouthfeel make it very smooth and surprisingly easy to drink. This beer ages very well and will continue to mature for many years to come.
Available in 750ml bottles and draft
 
Lil’ Devil - This unfiltered Belgian-Style Pale Ale pours a hazy gold with a creamy white head. Ground coriander seeds and two kinds of orange peel added to the kettle contribute pleasant citrus notes to its Belgian fermentation character. Lil’ Devil’s light body and effervescent finish make for a refreshing beer that will have you coming back for more.
Available on draft
 
Barrel Aged Old Numskull - This Barrel-Aged version of our American Barleywine Ale is matured in premium bourbon barrels for up to one year to develop its rich and intense flavor profile. The result is an amazingy complex beer that balances the caramel and toasted malt character of the Old Numbskull with notes of vanilla, oak, and bourbon from the barrel aged process. Savor this one now or continue to age it in the bottle for years to come.
Available in 750ml bottles and draft
