Introducing Swingin’ Friar Ale

With Opening Day (March 28) right around the corner, Ballast Point and the San Diego Padres have teamed up to release Swingin’ Friar Ale, the official craft beer of the San Diego Padres.

Unveiled today at Ballast Point’s Miramar brewery (video below,) the 100% Simcoe-hopped pale ale is designed for easy drinking.  In other words, it’s the perfect beer for a day at Petco Park, but still packs the hops San Diego is known for.  Named after the Padres’ iconic Friar mascot, Swingin’ Friar Ale packs aromas of grapefruit and citrus, complemented by a crisp, “biscuity” finish.

Available at the ballpark beginning Opening Day, and throughout the San Diego area season-long, the exclusive Padres-themed beer helps celebrate the team’s 50th anniversary season in San Diego.
