One of San Diego’s craft brewing companies now has a street named after it – right at the site of its newest location set to open this summer.
AleSmith Brewing Co. has been working with the City of San Diego to change the name of the street where its new location will open from Empire Street to AleSmith Court.
On Wednesday morning, the street name change was officially made and the new, shiny street sign was unveiled as AleSmith Brewing staffers celebrated.
AleSmith Court is located off Miramar Road. CEO Peter Zien plans to open a new, state-of-the-art brewery there in a few months boasting a custom Steinecker 80 bbl brew system with the capability to pump out more than 100,000 barrels per year.
The new facility is just two blocks west of the original facility and will help the brewery increase production.
The space will also feature an entirely new tasting room, according to the brewery website.
The brewing company is known for draft selections such as X Extra Pale Ale, Lil’ Devil Belgian Pale Ale, San Diego Pale Ale, Grand Cru and Speedway Stout, among its beer lineup.
AleSmith Brewing Co. was founded in 1995 and is currently celebrating its 20th year in production as a local craft brewery.
