Featured Pairing:
PEANUT BUTTER CUP PORTER &
PB&J ICE CREAM SANDWICH

The beer: PEANUT BUTTER CUP PORTER

This decadent twist on a robust porter packs rich layers of smooth peanut butter and dark chocolate flavors. The lingering, slightly dry finish is sure to keep you going back for the next sip. Today, it turns out you really can have your dessert… and drink it too.

The Food: PB&J ICE CREAM SANDWICH

Vanilla bean ice cream, strawberry preserves, peanut butter caramel, pound cake, candied bacon crumble, and cinnamon-sugared sweet fries. 7.95 Our chefs simply outdid themselves this month with this creatively indulgent pairing. The chocolate and coffee flavors in the porter complement the rich vanilla ice cream and pound cake, while the strawberry and peanut butter highlight the beer’s unique sweet and nutty finish. Save room for dessert.

About This Location

Opening in February of 1989, Karl Strauss Downtown became the first brewery to open in San Diego in more than fifty years. Located blocks from San Diego’s city center, this historic brewery location is where Master Brewer Karl Strauss brewed the first batches of his namesake Amber and our World Beer Cup and Great American Beer Festival medal-winning Red Trolley Ale. The original onsite microbrewery remains in full operation, consistently producing a series of rotating special release brews to pair with our West Coast pub fare. In addition to our drink beer, think food approach to beer and food pairing, Karl Strauss Downtown features 10 craft beers on tap, brewery tours, and a knowledgeable staff of craft beer enthusiasts.
