Staring in April, the San Diego History Center will explore the ebb and flow of beer production in the San Diego region with its new exhibit Bottled & Kegged: San Diego’s Craft Brew Culture. The museum will be full of cool interactive elements and awesome artifacts. An art piece that takes every growler, bottle or glass from every brewery in San Diego County was made specifically for the exhibit. The showcase will feature artifacts (paintings, tables and chairs) from Aztec Brewing Co., which in post prohibition years was San Diego’s largest brewery. The exhibit will even have a famous original brewhouse from Ballast Point Brewing Co. — a 15-barrel system used to make Sculpin India Pale Ale.[satellite gallery=4 auto=off caption=off thumbs=on]
But maybe some of the coolest learning tools will be the excellent, old thyme photography on display. The San Diego History Center was kind enough to share some of that photography with CBB, along with some concept shots of the exhibit. Peruse some of these striking images above at your convenience.
