Take it from the tap: Tony Gwynn Junior’s IPA


Tony Gwynn Jr., the former pro baseball player and son of Baseball Hall of Famer, follows in his father’s footsteps and trades his bat for a brew with an IPA.

Beer: Tony Gwynn Junior’s IPA

From: AleSmith Brewing

Why: Show your Padres pride by hoisting this liquid riff on the Tony Gwynn-inspired .394 Pale Ale. Released late last month, Jr.’s IPA was created by head brewer Ryan Crisp and a former major leaguer whose name may sound familiar: Tony Gwynn Jr.

Geeking out: 4.3% ABV; 40 IBUs (International Bittering Units).

Seeking out: Jr.’s IPA is on tap at Petco Park, several local restaurants and taverns, plus the taproom at AleSmith Brewing
