COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"It’s hard to believe we’ve been slingin’ pizzas for 20 years since March of 1987! That’s about 7300 days or 175,200 happy hours of fun! We’re excited to celebreate by brewing and bottling up a beer to share a special toast! Swami’s IPA is one of our best selling beers. Many have called it the original San Diego IPA. As such, it’s been a big part of Pizza Port Solana Beach since we installed the brewing system in 1992. A bold IPA hopped to the extreme with galena, Centennial and Cascade hops. We also add a healthy dose of dry hops in the serving tank and always serve it unfiltered. Thank you so much to everyone who has been sharing the memories along the unbelievable way...Cheers!"

Formerly 7.4% when brewed at Solana Beach location.

Garrold (1611) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2014
Can. Beer Central, Sheffield. Hazy gold. Dense, lasting, sticky, white head. Big, tropical fruit aroma. Peach. Pineapple. Ripe mandarin. Some vanilla sweet, toffee malts underneath. Taste is, by contrast, pithy, and zesty bitter. Palate is full, and oily. Really quite chewy. Finishes a little sweet, but mostly big, oily, pithy bitter. Liked this a lot. Super tasty.
