3 Days. 2 Laps. 8 Speedway Stout Variants.

San Diego Beer Week is upon us, which means it’s time for AleSmith’s premier SDBW event, Speedway Grand Prix! Our signature imperial stout with artisanally roasted coffee races around your palate as various AleSmith staff members partner with our brew team to dream up and produce unique riffs on the highly-acclaimed Speedway Stout.

Due to pandemic concerns, we’re conducting the Speedway Grand Prix a little differently this year. We will be offering two different ways to experience the enjoyment of this year’s Speedway Stout variants: join us in our Tasting Room for dine-in and beer service and/or (for the first time ever) purchase a convenient 16oz can mixed 4-pack to enjoy at home!
