has intense pine and grapefruit notes that linger through a dry finish. Our signature dry-hopping technique brings out vibrant citrus aromas that are balanced by a toasted malt backbone. Tower 10 IPA is brewed in true West Coast fashion.
Hand-shaped lamb burgers, white cheddar, seared portabella and shishitos, beer onions, curly endive, tomato, spicy harissa, and cotija crumble.
When Tower 10 IPA is the beer pairing, regular ol’ sliders need not apply. The caramelized flavors of the rich grilled lamb and the beer onions are a perfect complement to this full-flavored IPA. Tower 10’s big hop flavors enhance the citrusy, spicy harissa and cleanse your palate for the next bite.

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.
