In the house with Karl Strauss

Karl Strauss Brewing celebrating 35th anniversary with a handful of dynamic "house party" events at its venues

Karl Strauss Brewing, San Diego’s longest continuously operating post-Prohibition beer company, will host Karl’s House Party at its Sorrento Mesa brewpub on Wednesday, March 27 in celebration of its 35th anniversary.

Tickets are currently for sale online and entitle attendees to four draft beers, including two exclusive barrel-aged beers that will never be tasted again, all-you-can-eat bites and a swag bag that includes Karl Strauss’ 35th Anniversary Barrel Aged Weizenbock, a limited-edition pint glass and more. The festivities begin at 6 p.m.

Karl Strauss Executive Chef Gunther Emathinger, who has been with the brewery for 25 years, will present a food menu that features pretzel bites, spicy ahi poke, beer sausage skewers, firecracker sirloin strips, beer-brined pork chops, drunken shrimp, award-winning “MAC On Tap” (mac ‘n cheese), beeramisu and more.

91X FM, the longtime radio partner of Karl Strauss, will broadcast live from the event and provide the House Party music.

The evening will include storytelling from Brewmaster Paul Segura and co-founding CEO Chris Cramer. It was with the help of Cramer’s cousin, master brewer Karl M. Strauss, that Karl Strauss Brewing first opened its doors on Columbia Street in downtown San Diego on February 2, 1989.

“It’s an extraordinary time for Karl Strauss beer and its fans old and new,” said the company’s Chief Experience Officer Jen Briggs. “As we embark on the next 35 years, it’s important for us to celebrate the history of Karl as San Diego’s O.G. craft brewery while looking ahead at the ways we can continue making connections through craft in Southern California and beyond.”

The brewery will also host another Karl’s House Party event on Thursday, April 18 at its Anaheim brewpub, which is located adjacent to Angel Stadium. Tickets are available online. A third Karl’s House Party event is slated for Thursday, September 19 at Karl Strauss’ downtown San Diego location. Details will be announced in the coming weeks.
