“We’re stoked to partner with our pals at Pizza Port Brewing Company to release this hop forward West Coast-style IPA,” states Ryan Crisp, Head Brewer at AleSmith. “Teaming up with a brewery that shares our passion for hops always makes for a fun and exciting experience,” Crisp adds.
“Pizza Port is honored to be brewing this collab with our OG SD cousins at AleSmith,“ states Sean Farrell, Director of Brewing Operation at Pizza Port Brewing. “Our two companies have been proudly carrying the IPA flag here in town for a while, going all the way back to their Irie Pirate Ale winning some hardware at our Strong Ale Fest. Excited how this clear, fruity IPA came out and even more pumped to share some pints with them,” Farrell notes.

About Pizza Port Brewing Company
In March of 1987 Gina and Vince Marsaglia, a pair of siblings in their 20′s, bought a struggling pizza place in the sleepy coastal town of Solana Beach, just north of San Diego. Early on, Vince took advantage of free space in the restaurant’s storage area to dabble with home brewing. The hobby took off and at the urging of friends and fans, Vince and Gina decided to go into the brewpub business. Pizza Port offered its first craft-brewed beers to patrons in 1992 and quickly gained a reputation in San Diego’s growing craft beer scene. Following their success at the Solana Beach location the company has been steadily expanding. Location #2 opened in 1997 in Carlsbad. Location #3 opened in 2003 in San Clemente. In 2008 a premium bottle shop was added adjacent to the Carlsbad location, which offers hundreds of options from other breweries in the craft beer community. Pizza Port location #4 opened in 2010 in Ocean Beach. And, most recently, location #5 opened in 2013 in the Bressi Ranch community of Carlsbad and introduced a canning line to allow Pizza Port beers to find their home on store shelves across San Diego County!
