Arrowhead Pride Beer of the Week: AleSmith Brewing Company San Diego Pale Ale .394 Welcome to another edition of the Beer of the Week!As always Daniel Sorensen Jersey , the Beer of the Week is originally presented on the Arrowhead Pride Tailgate on 610 Sports Radio as part of my Defense and Beer of the Week segment.During the offseason and preseason, each week’s Beer of the Week was chosen at random. Each week during the season, I’ll be choosing a beer from the opposition’s location — but one that can be obtained in the Kansas City area.And I’m already breaking the rule.This week’s Beer of the Week is straight out of San Diego.Sorry, Chargers.When you get out of that soccer stadium, I’ll pick one from Los Angeles.Say hello to AleSmith Brewing Company’s San Diego Pale Ale .394!A 6.0% ABV Pale Ale, this beer bucks the trend of hoppy pale ales, coming in at 13 IBU’s. This makes for an easy-to-drink golden pale ale with sweet malts that still has a good hop nose, but won’t linger as bitter on your palate. It’s perfect for afternoon drinking while watching the game, and won’t overwhelm you after knocking back a couple of cans!The .394 is named after late San Diego Padres legend Tony Gwynn — and his career high batting average from the 1994 season. Every beer purchased marks a donation to the Tony and Alicia Gwynn Foundation (TAG) that helps underprivileged children. So it’s not only a good beer from AleSmith, but also a good cause you’re helping to support.AleSmith Brewing Company was started by a three man team in 1995 as a small 15 bbl brew system. Their Belgian Golden Strong Ale won a silver medal from the 1998 Great American Beer Festival — their first of seventeen medals.In 2002, Grand Master Judge Peter Zien took ownership of the brewery and started formulating the lineup for which AleSmith is known to this day, earning the Best Small Brewing Company and Brewer of the Year awards at the 2008 Great American Beer Festival.Since then, the brewery has grown to a 100,000 square foot facility with an 80 bbl system, making great beers like the Old Numbskull Barleywine-style ale and their near perfectly rated Speedway Stout. If you can get either in their barrel-aged form, you’re in for a real treat.So if you can Harrison Butker Jersey , make sure to swing by your local liquor store and scoop up some AleSmith Brewing Company San Diego Pale Ale .394 this weekend!Check back here this time next week for the new Beer of the Week!Can Patrick Mahomes throw touchdown passes to 14 different Chiefs? Whatever else is true, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has stirred the imaginations of those who look for unusual NFL records that could be broken.Here’s another one to examine — this one courtesy of Good Morning Football host Peter Schrager.Schrager is correct.Through three weeks of the season, 12 different Chiefs players have caught passes from Mahomes, and nine of them have caught at least one touchdown pass.Sammy Watkins caught his first touchdown pass as a Chief on Sunday, and Marcus Kemp recorded his first reception on the season.Of the three remaining pass catchers yet without a touchdown, Spencer Ware would probably be the most likely to get one, followed by Damien Williams and Kemp.But even if all three eventually get touchdown catches, that’s still just 12 — not a record-setting 14.So who’s left?Neither running back Darrel Williams or tight end Alex Ellis — the remaining offensive skill players on the active roster — have yet seen playing time.The most likely way either of them — or practice squad players like Gehrig Dieter, Josh Crockett or David Wells — are going to see the field would be if currently active players miss playing time due to injury.So how else could the Chiefs get to 14?The Chiefs don’t presently have a defensive back that seems like a good candidate to get snaps as an offensive player - like Deion Sanders did.Nor does head coach Andy Reid have much history of having linemen report as eligible receivers like Marty Shottenheimer used to do.Chiefs offensive lineman Joe Valerio became a Kansas City folk hero between 1993 and 1995, when he was targeted on tackle-eligible plays four times, resulting in four touchdown passes.But that seems odd, doesn’t it?Wouldn’t you expect Reid to be the guy who thinks of putting an eligible tackle on the field to create more misdirection for his offense, rather than the staid Shottenheimer?Barring injuries, something like that is probably what it will take for Patrick Mahomes to get touchdown passes to 14 different Chiefs in 2018.But in this season, just about anything might be possible.We’ll keep an eye on it.
