One night I stopped by Small Bar. As I looked at the beer board, Karen Barnett flagged me down and when I approached to say hi she introduced me to the legendary local San Diego veteran brewer Colby Chandler!
Back in the day when I opened Cueva Bar I tried bringing Ballast Point beer to Cueva but it was a hard fish to catch. After sipping on a collaboration beer Colby had worked on, Karen suggested we collaborate on a dinner beer pairing event and so we did!
After meeting with Colby and the great team of gals at Ballast Point in Little Italy we came with a consensus of four beers that will be paired with 4 of our hand made and baked empanadas!
We hope you can join us to celebrate the capital beer of the world during San Diego's Beer Week!
