California Kebab & Beer Garden unveils Amplified Ale Works

Having expanded in May from a SDSU hangout to an open air, oceanfront Pacific Beach eatery, California Kebab & Beer Garden will be celebrating the unveiling of their three-barrel craft microbrewery, Amplified Ale Works, with a beer tasting party on November 2.

Chat with owners Alex Pierson & JC Hill and Amplified Ale Works brewmaster Cy Henley while sipping on the brewery’s inaugural barley pops, Leggy Blonde and Electrocution IPA.

Electrocution IPA is Amplified Ale Works’ "San Diego style" IPA made with crystal and cascade hops.

“It features an aroma bursting with tropical fruit and pine from heavy dry hopping,” the press release reads. “It has a smooth bitterness, with a hop-forward taste of citrus & grapefruit, and a toasted malt character in the background. It has a crisp finish with 7.2% alcohol by volume and 70 IBU.”

Amplified’s Leggy Blonde is a crisp, Belgian blonde ale with hints of clove, spice, and bubblegum.

“It finishes dry, much like a fine champagne. The beer was designed to be sessionable , 5.5% alcohol by volume, so patrons can have more than one and enjoy California Kebab’s scenic patio on a warm San Diego day.”

“I’ve had this love affair with craft beer that began about three years ago,” says Hill. “I found myself completely immersed in all things beer; so many nights I had trouble sleeping because I was so wired thinking about new recipes and different styles.”

Despite his credentials as a certified Cicerone and the several years of homebrewing experience under his belt, Hill acknowledged early on that would need a seasoned brewmaster to run the show.

“My passion for beer and homebrewing would not translate to professional brewing overnight. Luckily I was put in touch with Cy Henley who had the professional experience from working at Ballast Point and Alpine, to head our program as brewmaster.

Hill says the name Amplified reflects the brewery’s mission to “create a unique product that invigorates the senses” (in true San Diego fashion) as well as the fact that many of the Amplified crew are musicians.

Accordingly, Amplified Ale Works plans to support local music by hosting monthly fundraising events and giving 10% of sales to a featured band.

“We hope that few extra bucks will allow for more recording time, touring expenses, new equipment, and whatever else the band will need.”


Taste what it’s all about on November 2 at the Pacific Peach location - 4150 Mission Blvd., Suite 208. Party starts at 5 p.m.

Note: Uber car service will be offering a $20 discount to all attendees coming to and from the event.
