It’s one of the biggest times of the year for San Diego! Comic-Con International is here again, and it’s bringing hundreds of thousands of people to our beautiful city.
Since San Diego is one of the beer capitals of the United States (if not the world!) it makes sense that there’s a lot of beer coming along with the crowds. But brewers aren’t the only ones who are coming through! Check out the Comic-Con offerings, because cons are thirsty work!
First and foremost, Schmaltz Brewing Company is celebrating the fiftieth anniversary (!) of Star Trek with a theme beer called The Trouble With Tribbles, a golden ale. Yum! You’ll be able to find it at the following locations in San Diego this week:
Golden Anniversary Ale: The Trouble With Tribbles will be available throughout the San Diego metro area at Neighborhood (777 G St.), Burgers, Bate & Beer (200 Marina Park Way), Hopping Pig (748 Fifth Ave), Tipsy Crow (770 Fifth Ave), Gaslamp Tavern (868 Fifth Ave), The Safehouse – North Park (2930 University Ave), Newport Pizza & Alehouse – Ocean Beach (5050 Newport Ave), Balboa Tap House – Clairemont (4421 Genesee Ave), Goldfish Point Café – La Jolla (1255 Coast Blvd), Eureka! – La Jolla (4353 La Jolla Village Dr), Woodstock’s Pizza – SDSU (6145 El Cajon Blvd), Ugly Dog Pub (6344 El Cajon Blvd), Craft Kitchen – La Mesa (4253 Palm Ave), and The Hills – La Mesa (8758 La Mesa Blvd). Please refer to this interactive map for additional locations selling The Trouble With Tribbles.
Schmaltz is also putting out another brew in the fall called: Star Trek Golden Anniversary Ale: Voyage To The Northeast Quadrant.
There’s also a metric ton of beer and comics related events all weekend long! It starts with Hop-Con 4.0, and the fun continues all the way through the weekend with the Heroes Brew Fest as one of the annual highlights.
There are quite a few Comic-Con-themed cocktails out there, too. Check a sampling of `em out right here. Because San Diego Comic-Con is thirsty work!
