That’s right folks! The Padres and Pints crew will be emerging from our parents basements to shoot an episode with special guest Jesse Agler at Mike Hess Brewing in North Park, immediately following the Padres/Braves game and you are all invited!

Come on down and watch the game (big screens & beer!) and then watch us say things like, “TAKE 2!” and “TAKE 7!” as we bumble through our lines repeatedly while basking in the glow that is Jesse Agler. It’ll be a fun time for all!

Where: Mike Hess Brewing- North Park at 3812 Grim Avenue San Diego CA 92104
Date: Tuesday June 9th 2015
Time: 4:10PM Padres vs. Braves/7:30ish Padres and Pints
What: Watch the Padres take on the #Barves and then watch us film a Padres and Pints episode. See how the cheese is really made, or something like that.
Anything else?: Wow, you’re tough to please, but there may be some other surprises in store. Stay tuned!

EDIT – We will now also be joined by the legendary Bob Chandler! Plus there will be giveaways courtesy of Knockaround!

Since it’s National Beer Day, we thought we’d give you two Padres and Pints posts in one day.

On Saturday, while at Padres FanFest, I did my best to hobble around on one knee and scope out some of the changes this year when it comes to beer. Not everything was open but here’s what I found out!

Mike Hess Brewing

I saw the Habitus Double IPAJucundus Orange Honey Wheat at the San Diego craft beer carts behind home plate on the field level. However based on the picture above, they may rotate it from time to time. There were also Bomber’s of Habitus and Grazias Vienna Cream Ale in the Craft Beers of San Diego stand next to Seaside Market and cans of Claritas Kolsch and Jucundus.

Rumor has it that their new “Open Mike” cans will be there soon too. These cans have removable tops which turns it into a cup and Hess is the first brewery on the West Coast to use this idea.

Also of note: the Jucundus was Brady & I’s celebratory beer of choice for the #BloggersTakeover and it was fantastic.
