It’s Our 10 Year Anniversary!
June 2021 marks ten years since we first opened our doors in San Diego’s Little Italy neighborhood. Since then, we’ve grown to four San Diego locations, one in Long Beach and two more on the way in Oceanside and San Luis Obispo!
We thought it was only fitting to ring in a decade of good beer with four special releases from breweries we love.
Available starting this Saturday, June 26th at all locations:
Great Notion “Samson’s Tropical Vacation” | Tart Ale (7.5% abv)
Originally brewed for our 9 Year Anniversary, this one was such a hit, we brought it back for our 10th! Samson’s is a tropical tart ale brewed with pineapple, lime, coconut, and vanilla. Brewed in honor of Samson, Bottlecraft Little Italy’s resident shop dog. Surf’s Up!
Modern Times “Neon Campfire” | Imperial Pastry Stout (13% abv)
An exorbitantly decadent campfire stout started with a 2-row base, then added supporting malts of flaked oats, Crystal Extra Dark, roasted barley, Blackprinz, dark chocolate malt, pale chocolate malt, cherry wood smoked malt, Victory malt, and Double Roasted Crystal. Next came the recirculating; 66lbs of cocoa nibs and 150lbs of graham cracker crumbs for 5 days, and Ugandan vanilla and hand-toasted vegan marshmallows for an additional 5. It pours smoky black, and drinks like a freshly stacked liquid s’more. We’d be hard-pressed to come up with a better birthday treat.
Enegren “Jahrzehnt” | Hoppy Pilsner (4.8% abv)
“Jahrzehnt” is German for “decade”, which, coincidentally is how long both Bottlecraft and Enegren have been in operation. Classic pilsner base with New Zealand Motueka hops, providing a refreshingly zesty tropical flavor.
Ferrous Falcon “Bee & Bird” | Dry Hopped Double IPA (8.6% abv)
A dry hopped Double IPA with Cascade, El Dorado, Enigma, Honey and Lactose.
We will also be celebrating this Saturday with new, limited release 10 Year Anniversary merchandise and special draft lists featuring Cellarmaker, Fieldwork, Bottle Logic, and more! Check out Taphunter for live draft updates.
We are so honored to continue to serve Southern California and beyond. Thank you to everyone who has sat at our bar or shopped our shelves. We couldn’t have done it without you!
