NO-NO JOE DOUBLE IPA
Collaboration with Joe Musgrove
We first met Joe Musgrove in the spring of 2021. Shortly after being traded to the Padres, he sent us a message telling us that he had visited the brewery and enjoyed our beer. As massive baseball fans, we were flattered and grateful for his compliment. To express our thanks, we invited Joe downtown to check out the brewery and taste a few of our beers. While he was visiting, we asked if he would be interested in brewing a beer with us, and he eagerly agreed. A few days later, he threw the first No-Hitter in San Diego history.
When the time came to brew our collaboration, we set out to create a beer that would properly commemorate Joe's historic achievement. Here's what we decided on:
Name: No-No Joe
This natural rhyming nickname seemingly swelled from sources all around San Diego following Musgrove's No-Hitter (or No-No).
Style: West Coast Double IPA
When we asked him which beer styles he would be interested in brewing, Joe suggested the two most "San Diego" styles possible: Mexican Lager and West Coast IPA. Since we had recently debuted our Compadre Mexican Lager, we ended up deciding on a West Coast Double IPA.
Musgrove threw his No-Hitter on the 8,206th game in Padres history.
Prior to joining the Padres, Musgrove wore #59.
SRM (Color Indicator): 4.4
When he joined the Padres, Musgrove chose #44 to pay homage to Jake Peavy, who he watched pitch while growing up in San Diego.
No-No Joe is a West Coast Double IPA brewed with Nelson, Strata, Citra, and Simcoe hops. Dry and fruity with hop aromas of Passion Fruit, Pineapple, Tangerine, and White Wine Grape, No-No Joe is crisp, clean, and refreshing. The perfect beer to enjoy while watching a ballgame.
Best of all, a portion of all proceeds from No-No Joe sales goes directly to the Challenged Athletes Foundation, a local organization that works to assist people with physical challenges participate in athletics.
