No. 394 San Diego Pale Ale

In honor of San Diego legend Tony Gwynn. We have not been blessed with many winning teams in this town and absolutely zero championships (I don't count the '63 AFL title) but #19 was truly something special. I'm not sure how he was/is viewed in other parts of the nation but to me he was the greatest pure hitter of his era. George Brett, Boggs, Mattingly, Puckett and Molitor all come to mind as non power guys that got way more pub than him but absolutely nobody was more reliably consistent from the mid 80's to mid 90's than T. Cheers 🍻 to him up in that big 5.5 hole in the sky. — 6 years ago

He definitely belongs in ur list of hitters. He was a great one.

I believe Gwynn was and is universally respected as one of the greatest pure hitters of all time. He should also get respect for being the face of the franchise playing his whole career with the Padres. Glad my Braves are leaving town after getting smoked by your Team.

Once again Delectable proves to me that guys who appreciate the complexities of wine are sharp in a myriad of other areas! Thank you @Andrew Willingham @philip Angino @Chris Parrino @Mike R @Ned blodgett @leon egozi for confirming that Gwynn got the recognition he deserves outside of CA. ESPN Sports Center had a huge East Coast bias back in the day (the reason for Gina Toretra winning the Heisman over Marshall Faulk 🙄) it's cool to know that wine friends in Canada, FLA, the Northeast and the South respected him like I did.

Limited Release Indra Kunindra India-Style Export Stout

A Thai coconut green curry meal with some of the dessert too. After taste lingering curry/cayenne heat. Unique is an understatement :-) — 7 years ago
