Manzanita Brewing Co. Releases Where There’s Smoke in Bottles

East County San Diego, CA – January is finally here and so is the long anticipated release of Where There’s Smoke. This smoked rye ale brewed with chile peppers is a favorite among craft beer enthusiasts.

Every year we take the time to hand process the chilies that are brewed with the beer. This is a lengthy process that starts weeks ahead of time, however the devotion to ingredient detail is key to making this beer complex in flavor. The combination of the two types of chilies, Guajillo pronounced gwah-Hee-yoh and Chile de Arbol, gives this beer a unique heat that is not over powering. This World Beer Cup award winner will now be available throughout the whole state of California.

To toast this San Diego “winter” treat, we will be throwing special release event at our Tasting Room, January 15th from 4pm-8pm. Our brewers have created a specialty flight for the evening, which will feature a variety of beers that are heat focused. As an added treat we will have New Orleans Cuisine and Catering Food Truck, featuring regional favorites, along with a dish created with our very own Where There’s Smoke!

Flight Line Up:

  • Where There’s Smoke
  • Hot Blonde
  • Gillespie Brown with Thai Chile, Lemongrass and Coconut
  • Pale Ale with Habanero, Ginger and Basil
  • Chaotic with Ghost Chiles
