San Diego Beer Week: Speedway Grand Prix

Wednesday, November 7th – Friday, November 9th

It’s time for AleSmith’s 6th Annual 3-Day Speedway Grand Prix event during San Diego Beer Week! The event will feature over twelve different specialty Speedway Stout variants broken into three flights (aka Laps) AND a VIP Lap featuring Barrel-Aged versions.

Speedway Stout has been a favorite in AleSmith’s year-round lineup since 1999. Its flavor is dominated by chocolate and roasted malts, which are complemented by a healthy dose of coffee added to each batch. While we love this stout just the way it is, its well-balanced profile and smooth drinkability make it the ideal candidate for the AleSmith team to use to flex their creative muscles. So, once a year we decide to push the limits and create exclusive one-off variations of Speedway Stout that are sure to impress.

The Speedway Grand Prix will take place here at AleSmith Brewing Company Wednesday (11/7/2018), Thursday (11/8/2018), and Friday (11/9/2018) during San Diego Beer Week.  Celebrate craft beer properly during San Diego Beer Week and drink some “laps” with us!

Tickets go on sale on October 1st!
