(San Diego, CA) – Lots of news coming out of AleSmith’s latest newsletter on Wednesday. Read more below regarding the 22nd anniversary party on Saturday, August 12th.


We’re turning 22 years old and we want all of you to help us celebrate! We cordially invite you to attend our Anniversary Party on Saturday, August 12 from 11am through 11pm. We have quite a few exciting features planned for this celebratory occasion! Make plans now to join us for the following:

  • Double Barrel Speedway Stout Onsite Presale Event (Limited)
    • We’re offering party-goers the unique opportunity to purchase a bottle of this upcoming barrel-aged Speedway Stout release before it officially goes on sale on Eventbrite the following Monday.
    • Bottle Pre-sale is limited to One (1) Bottle per Person, as total presale amount is limited.
    • Presale ends as soon as limited presale inventory has been depleted. Attending the party does not guarantee you an opportunity to purchase a bottle.
    • In honor of our 22nd Anniversary, we will also be marking 22 individual bottles of Double Barrel Speedway Stout. If you end up purchasing a marked bottle, you win a prize!
