For those of you who haven’t been to Abnormal Beer Co yet, you are definitely missing out. They are getting ready to celebrate their first anniversary on Saturday, April 16. It’s hard to imagine that they are only going to be celebrating their first anniversary with some of the amazing things they have accomplished during year one. From tap takeovers, to exclusive beer dinners featuring other breweries, to collaborations and celebrations, to their big expansion plans, this brewery has definitely hit the ground running.
Part of that, is thanks to their head brewer Derek Gallanosa. Starting as a home brewer in 2007, he quickly grew his passion and love for craft beer into an Assistant Brewer at Karl Strauss Brewing nine months later. If you have been to any events at local breweries throughout San Diego, chances are you have rubbed elbows with him once or twice since he is always supporting others in the industry. He’s even an active contributor to the popular Facebook group for beer lovers called SD BEER FRIENDS and even brewed a special beer in honor of that group. He’s made some ridiculously good beers at Abnormal Beer Co over the past year and is definitely not afraid to play with flavor profiles. Our favorite has to have been his M2- Imperial Oatmeal Stout with Cocao Nibs, Lactose, Espresso, Coconut, & Vanilla, which he made in celebration of Mostra Coffee’s 2nd Anniversary. We are definitely excited to see what he comes up with next, especially with Abnormal Beer Co’s big expansion currently underway.
So come celebrate one year with Abnormal Beer Co and Derek at their 1st Anniversary Party. It’s going to have a killer tap line up, snacks & small bites for purchase. Did we mention that the brewery is located at The Cork & Craft, which makes ridiculously good food? Plus chances are you will see an alien or two.
