Bay City Brewing Co. Adds Crowler Machine

SAN DIEGO – One local brewery has found a simple way to blend the great outdoors with craft beer that tastes like it was just tapped — even when you’re nowhere near a brewery. With its new, state-of-the-art machine, Bay City Brewing Co. now offers crowlers – the latest way to enjoy its craft creations and special releases on the go.

“Up until recently, people could only indulge in Bay City Brewing Co. in our tasting room, at a local bar or from a growler,”says Ben DuBois, co-owner of Bay City Brewing Co. “As a portable and environmentally-friendly alternative to traditional glass growlers, crowlers empower craft beer lovers to enjoy the many adventures San Diego has to offer without sacrificing the freshness of a locally made craft beer. Now, you can take the tasting room with you.”

According to DuBois, the addition of a crowler to its lineup of beer accessories marks a major milestone for the brewery whose beers are not yet available for sale in bottles or cans. The easy-to-use machine seals beer on tap inside a 32-ounce aluminum can, preventing any light or oxygen from disrupting the flavor. The crowler canning equipment marks the latest addition to Bay CityBrewing Co.’s 6,300 square-foot space.

To kick off its crowler craze, Bay City Brewing Co. invites the community to its Point Loma tasting room for a celebration.From 6 to 8 p.m. on Friday, September 29, guests can enjoy local food truck fare, a special release of Haze Against the Machine and all the canned beer their hearts desire.

As the fourth addition to the Bay City Brewing Co. hazy train,Haze Against the Machine uses a Conan yeast strain that produces a style of hazy beer known as a known as New England IPA.With a 6.6 percent alcohol by volume, this new brew blends lime and peach flavors with the citrus and tropical fruit flavors found inGalaxy hops.

Known informally as the “I-saw-you-from-the-freeway” brewery,Bay City Brewing Co. has found its home off Hancock Street in an industrial nook of Point Loma. The two-year-old brewery invites all to its indoor-outdoor tasting room to try any of its custom crafts on tap, now available in cans to-go, Monday throughSunday.
