Facebook Event link HERE

BOXCAR Speedway Debut: To celebrate a decade of serving up San Diego Craft Beer, we decided to create an extremely special beer in collaboration with the brewery that kicked off our love of homebrewing, and that has been a major part of our history from day one – AleSmith Brewing Company. After brainstorming with Peter Zien we decided on a Barrel-Aged Speedway variation that would add layers, depth, complexity, and a little heat to this already unique beer. This beer is the collaborative effort of elite brewers, judges, roasters, and passionate industry compatriots. The name BOXCAR came second and is a nod to the old railcars, whose tracks cut around the AleSmith brewery.

Pliny the Younger Tappings:
Saturday 2/25 10am
Sunday 2/26 10am
(no tickets necessary, first come first serve)

Why this beer is special:

The Coffee:
Swell Coffee Co. supplied us with a unique blend of ultra premium Columbian & Burundi coffees, designed to hold up to the strength of this beer, while imparting their own nuanced flavor characteristics.

25% Peaberry grade coffee from Kayanza, Burundi in Africa. Peaberry grade coffee is produced from a natural mutation of the bean inside the cherry, where only a single bean is present inside the cherry providing a denser, sweet, and flavorful coffee.
Tasting Notes: Peach & Butterscotch

75% Finca La Virgen de Oro from Antioquia, Columbia, this is a true Estate coffee meaning it’s beans are milled and packed at the farm, unlike any other Columbian coffee.
Tasting Notes: Strawberry, Floral, Sweet Pepper, & Molasses.

The Chilies:
We used a blend of Hatch & Mulato chilies to further add to the complexity of this beer while contributing a touch of back end heat. The Hatch chilies provide a sweet earthiness, while the Mulato Chilies contribute notes of chocolate, cherry, & tobacco.

Cocoa Nibs & Vanilla Beans:
BoxCar was also aged on Brazil Forastero Cocoa Nibs and a healthy dose of Bourbon Madagascar Vanilla beans, which accentuate the sweeter, complex, whiskey character.

A host of resources, time, & passion went into the making of this collaboration, which we believe come through in the finished product. We are humbled to finally be able to share this project with everyone. Cheers from AleSmith & TapRoom team, enjoy!
