Green Flash Brewing Company has partnered up with another famous San Diego based sunglasses company called Knockaround for a special San Diego Beer Week 2015 Release! Not only is Green Flash Brewing going to release a new beer called Brightside which is a Berliner Weisse brewed with cucumber, but Knockaround will be releasing some exclusive Sunglasses to go along with this amazing collaboration!
Here’s what each of them had to say about the collaboration:
“Both brands thrive on a commitment to culture, a labor of love, and an extremely loyal fan following, and I’m thrilled to bring the two of us together to celebrate one of my favorite weeks of the year, San Diego Beer Week,” said Adam Moyer, Founder of Knockaround Sunglasses.
“Knockaround’s vibrant style and creativity combined with our passion for craft brewing resulted in a pair of beer sunglasses and a special beer release craft beer fans will covet. Bringing together like-minded artisans and designers passionate about their craft is always something we enjoy being a part of, whether it is food pairings, beer collaborations, and now eyewear. We are excited to showcase our collaborative project this year at San Diego Beer Week,” said Mike Hinkley, CEO and co-founder of Green Flash Brewing Company.
To celebrate the launch on Friday, November 13th there is a special event at Green Flash Brewing Company Tasting Room starting at 6pm.

Knockaround is the original, affordable, Southern California sunglasses company based in San Diego, California and founded by Adam Moyer in 2005. Merging the classic East Coast prep style of his Virginia upbringing, his interest in design and fashion, and a newfound love for the perpetually sunny, laid-back lifestyle of Southern California, Moyer created a company centered on a sunglasses line that was both practical and stylish. Since its inception, Knockaround has grown to offer five different frame styles available in a wide range of colors, ongoing Limited Edition sunglasses and collaborations, a “build your own” custom sunglasses shop and an extremely loyal fan base.
