Padres and Pints was created by two friends from San Diego who would frequently meet up and talk about two things they loved: baseball and beer. As one of the best craft beer cities in the world, there is no shortage of beer hot spots in San Diego. The commnity of Padres baseball on the other hand needed original, fun, unique, multimedia content. We saw a great match created a show!
Early on this fun side project made up with passion what it lacked in technical quality. Soon, the equipment quality, scope (we introduced a podcast!) and audience grew.
Both the video series and podcasts are hosted here at Padres Public. 2016 is shaping up to be a busy year with new guests and new locations on the horizon.
