Beer + Art

Three flights will be available for purchase Thursday evening, all selected to highlight interesting and exciting aspects of craft beer, both locally and globally. As always individual beers will be available for purchase as well from the large selection stocked by Bottlecraft.

Since this is San Diego one flight will highlight the beer styles San Diego brewers are most known for, IPAs and Double IPAs. The flight will include:

  • Karl Strauss Big Barrel
  • Port Brewing Mongo
  • Ballast Point Sculpin
  • Stone Sublimely Self Righteous Ale
But we want to make it clear that San Diego brewers aren’t a one trick pony. San Diego might be known for hoppy beers, but there are plenty of other styles being brewed here. This flight of not so hoppy beers from San Diego brewers will include:
  • Lightning Thunderweizen
  • Coronado Mermaid Red
  • AleSmith Horny Devil
  • Green Flash Double Stout
One of my favorite trends in craft beer (that I hope continues to grow and stick around for a long time) is craft beer in cans. Cans are lighter in weight which reduces shipping cost and fuel needed to transport them. They’re also easier to carry and can be taken places where glass isn’t allowed. Sadly no San Diego breweries are canning their beers (yet?). This flight includes beers from Colorado, Hawaii and even Japan:
  • Oskar Blues Dale’s Pale Ale
  • Avery Joe’s Pils
  • Maui Flyin’ Hi P Hay
  • Yoho Tokyo Black
* Flights are subject to change in the unlikely occasion that any of the beers don’t show up in time for the show. But we’ll make sure they get substituted with something equally awesome and in line with the theme of the flight.
