GUEST BLOG—By Ryan Lamb, Executive Editor, West Coaster Beer Magazine.
The Grill at Torrey Pines has played host to local craft beer heavyweights like Ballast Point, Coronado and The Lost Abbey for past beer dinners, but this Wednesday they’re switching it up to focus on one of San Diego’s newest breweries, Acoustic Ales Brewing Experiment.
Brewing in the original Mission Brewery building, Acoustic Ales is bringing five of their creations to pair with Executive Chef Daniel Boling’s menu.
