San Diego Monthly Brewers' Dinners Celebrating Craft Beer
and Food at The Lodge at Torrey Pines®

SAN DIEGO, California (August 2010) – San Diego has been identified as the epicenter for beer culture and tourism. The Grill at Torrey Pines is proud to present a special Brewers’ Dinner with AleSmith Brewing Company to take place on Wednesday, September 29th, at The Lodge at Torrey Pines®.

AleSmith Brewing Company, one of San Diego’s premier craft breweries, creates award-winning, hand-forged ales. Deeply rooted in the home brewing community, AleSmith has continued to garner national and international acclaim, as well as a loyal and rabid following among beer enthusiasts.

Owner and Brew master Peter Zien will be presenting his personal creations at an event entitled “Peter’s Basement.” Grill Chef Kyle Bergman will pair four rare AleSmith specialty brews with a carefully crafted four-course menu.

The Grill, members of the San Diego Brewers Guild, will partner with local breweries the last Wednesday of each month for a four-course dinner event. Highlighting the superior, innovative craft beer in San Diego, these Brewers’ Dinners combine food and beer in a social atmosphere set on The Grill patio, overlooking the famed Torrey Pines Golf Course.

Guests have the opportunity to meet Chef Kyle Bergman of The Grill and the guest brewer to discuss the evening’s menu items and specialty beers. The brews served at our beer pairing dinners are rare finds - not available in stores or other restaurants - making this event a must for beer and food enthusiasts alike.

The $55 cost of The Brewers’ Dinners includes the special craft beers, dinner, and valet parking. These Brewers’ Dinners are offered in addition to the standard evening menus at The Lodge’s restaurants, A. R. Valentien and The Grill. To review the schedule for future culinary events, visit
