In 2014, San Diego based AleSmith Brewing is released San Diego Pale Ale .394, named for the late baseball great Tony Gwynn’s batting average at the end of the 1994 season.
In 2015 after Gwynn’s passing, AleSmith released Hall of Fame Imperial San Diego Pale Ale .394. This edition was big on American hops, weighing in at a much higher 9% alcohol by volume.
Staring this month, AleSmith Hall of Fame Imperial San Diego Pale Ale .394 is going into national distribution.
“Tony’s spirit and the friendship we developed while working together has brought the Gwynn and Zien families incredibly close. We hold the Tony Gwynn 5.5K run and walk annually with proceeds benefitting the Tony and Alicia Gwynn Foundation. Hall of Fame Imperial San Diego Pale Ale .394 is just one more way for us to keep the memory of our dear friend alive.” – Peter Zien, AleSmith CEO
