JOIN US FOR A VIRTUAL TOAST
CELEBRATING TONY GWYNN’S BIRTHDAY
This Saturday, May 9th at 4:30pm PDT
This Saturday, May 9th marks what would have been the 60th birthday of our late friend and legendary Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn. We invite you to join Tony Gwynn Jr., Alicia Gwynn, Anisha Gwynn, AleSmith owners Peter and Vicky Zien, and surprise Padres player guests at 4:30pm PDT that day for a special virtual birthday toast. Raise your glass of .394 Pale Ale as we celebrate the life and legacy of the beloved Mr. Padre.
Many of you already know the origin story of how fan-favorite AleSmith .394 Pale Ale came to be. We had the distinct honor and privilege of collaborating with Tony on this beer back in 2014 before his untimely passing. It is during this time spent working together that forged an unbreakable bond between AleSmith and the Gwynn family.
Should you need to stock up on .394 Pale Ale or Hazy .394 before this Saturday’s event, please access the beer finder on our website by using the appropriate button below. You can find the beer at grocery stores, retail chain stores, and liquor stores near you by using that button. If you’re in California/Nevada or local to the brewery, we currently have 25% OFF cases of 12oz cans for both .394 Pale Ale and Hazy .394 available for shipping orders and local pickup from the gift shop. Individual 6-Packs are also available for shipping and local pickup orders as well.
We will conduct Tony’s virtual birthday toast this Saturday via Zoom webinar. Spaces will be available on a first-come first-serve basis, so please make plans to join us that day as early as possible. The Gwynns and the Ziens will share stories about Tony, answer some of your Q&A questions, and lead us in a toast. They may even bring along a special guest or two to join in the festivities! Please make sure to have Zoom installed on your computer or mobile device ahead of time. Hit the link below to launch Zoom and join the party OR enter in Zoom Meeting ID 940 8998 2544.
