AleSmith Brewing Company will once again honor the late, great Tony Gwynn with a second beer release. A follow up to .394 Pale Ale, “Hall of Fame” Imperial .394 Pale Ale commemorates Gwynn’s 55th birthday and raises funds for the Tony Gwynn Museum.
AleSmith’s “Hall of Fame” ale is part of the brewery’s ongoing 20th Anniversary Specialty Release Series. Recently, Alesmith hosted an event honoring Gwynn, allowing customers to pick up their pre-ordered “Hall of Fame” offerings.
“Tony Gwynn envisioned this beer in early 2014 after collaborating with us on the .394 Pale Ale,” said AleSmith Owner and CEO Peter Zien. “The AleSmith team is honored to remember Tony with a double pale ale bearing his Padre number, and proud to support the Tony & Alicia Gwynn Foundation with a Tony Gwynn museum at our new location in the fall.”
Alesmith Imperial .394 Pale Ale features an aggressive hop bill of All-American hops, and a bottle featuring real gold and includes the special Tony Gwynn replica signature from his 2007 Hall of Fame induction.
Tony Gwynn would have turned 55 years old this year.
