2018 San Diego Music Awards Preparty

Friday March 16th at the KARL Tasting Room

*Event Update*

Unfortunately due to predicted rain and generally lousy weather we will be bringing the party inside for a more low key, but still significantly rad, evening with the Matt Smith Neu Jazz Trio.  The beer will still be fresh and ready for your enjoyment and the vibe will be warm and cozy. The music kicks off at 5:30p, bring friends and come thirsty.

We love supporting our local music scene. Whether through our Arts & Amps summer series or our ongoing partnership with Rowlbertos Media with A Red Trolley Show, we dig our music making friends here in town.  For the second year in row we’re making good on that commitment by sponsoring the San Diego Music Awards and kicking things off with a party at our Tasting Room here at the brewery.

Featuring a Live Performance by

Matt Smith Neu Jazz Trio – Best Jazz Album


Up until now, our Isomerizer IPA has only been available on draft and we’re ready to drop it into cans for you to take home. Coincidentally, those cans will be making their worldwide debut at the party! You can grab a 6 pack to take home, fill a growler for $10, and enjoy $5 pints of it all night long while we get down to some excellent tunes.

Isomerization. Is it magic? Sorcery? The work of a mad scientist?? Kinda! It’s the chemical process in which alpha acids are converted into hop oils and infused into the beer during a rolling boil. Isomerizer IPA has aromas of passion fruit, citrus zest, and grapefruit backed by subtle flavors of cracked wheat. Finishing dry and hoppy, this single hop American IPA proves you don’t need to be a super hero or a Brewmaster (wait, aren’t those one and the same?) to appreciate the isomerization of hops.

Food will be available onsite for purchase from the Caribbean Escape Food Truck.
