One Sip And You'll Realize Why
AleSmith's Finely Crafted Beers Have
Won More Awards Than
Practically Any Other Brewery

Led by acclaimed homebrewer Peter Zien, AleSmith Brewing Company is a titan in the booming San Diego craft beer industry. And their best has yet to come.


Why you should try their beer:

They put the perfect twist on timeless styles


Rather than trying to re-invent the wheel, AleSmith crafts exceptional beer by putting their spin on established and beloved styles. Consider their Belgian Strong Ale named Horny Devil or their special edition Speedway Stout, which is infused with dark chocolate and intense coffee flavor.

Ample awards hint at the beer's high quality


The long list of kudos that this brewery has racked up begins with its leader Peter Zien, who earned more than 400 medals as a homebrewer before taking the helm of AleSmith in 2002. Under Peter's leadership, the brewery has snagged several top awards at the Great American Beer Festival while inspiring other homebrewers to set their sights high.

Their bottle art is eye-catching and classy


The design of AleSmith's bottles feature a cool minimalist-modern style that's more art than advertising. Owner Peter Zien said that these classy, 750 ml bottles are part of his efforts to position the brewery as the "Rolls Royce" of craft-brewed ales. It's all about quality inside and out.

Warning: Beer of the month clubs and mass producers promise "craft" beer…deliver less-than-stellar drinking experience.

Sadly, it's true…
98% of breweries in America are now labeled as "craft beer" producers, a term that's quickly losing its meaning. But most are still hiding dull, lifeless beer behind clever names and fancy labels.
