Description by Brandon Hernández
The High Dive is popular among denizens of San Diego’s Bay Park community for many reasons, but it wasn’t until owner Ingrid Qua discovered the immense flavor-spectrum provided by craft beer that solid suds were added to the venue’s list of attributes. Fast forward to present day and The High Dive is now San Diego’s largest Ballast Point account and has one of the most diversified yet across-the-board-desirable beer lists in town. It is also home base for Ingrid’s monthly Chicks For Beer group, which brings in brewers for women-only beer education sessions where sampling is a key component of higher learning. Throw in pinball machines, a load of smile-inspiring kitsch, and the casual comfort of a “dive” and you’ve got all the makings for a high time at The High Dive.

The Bruery Smoking Wood - Rye
13.0%
The Bruery, Placentia, CA

Brewed with beachwood and cherrywood smoked malt, Smoking Wood is a delicious demonstration of what wood has to offer when it comes to beer. This imperial smoked porter is brewed with a hefty amount of rye malt, contributing to a full body and light spiciness. This aged variant is layered with a rounding richness from the spirit from the rye barrel. Toasty oak, caramel and vanilla flavors balance the smokiness, contributing to an intense yet refined flavor profile.
