AleSmith to hold Tony Gwynn Day

Celebration of legendary San Diego sports figure to feature special-edition beers

AleSmith Brewing is proud to announce the upcoming Tony Gwynn Day celebration at its brewery on Saturday, August 5. The event will commemorate legendary baseball player, Tony Gwynn, and feature two special commemorative beers in four-packs of 16-ounce cans, with eye-catching artwork designed by Ground Floor Murals.

Tony Gwynn is considered one of the greatest baseball players of all time, having earned 15 All-Star selections, eight National League batting titles, five Gold Glove Awards, and induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame. AleSmith collaborated with “Mr. Padre” himself in 2014 to brew .394 Pale Ale, which is named after his highest batting average in 1994, and available on tap and in package throughout San Diego County.

In honor of Gwynn’s milestone 2,000th and 3,000th career hits in 1993 and 1999, AleSmith will be releasing two commemorative beers paying homage to his illustrious career. This is the second year of the Miramar brewery hosting this event kicking it off in 2022.

The celebration will take place at AleSmith’s Miramar tasting room from 2 to 6 p.m. Visitors will enjoy live art activations, DJs, raffle prizes and food trucks on-site throughout the day. The main attraction will be the Padres vs. Dodgers Watch Party at 5:40 p.m., complete with drink specials available to support the home team.

Those interested in attending the event and picking up four-packs can RSVP online to receive more information on the event and exclusive pre-sale details pre-sale of the new releases.

AleSmith invites everyone to join in the celebration of Tony Gwynn’s life and legacy. The event is free and open to all ages.
