Karl Strauss Adds Follow the Sun as New Core

Karl Strauss, San Diego’s longest continuously operating post-Prohibition brewing company, today releases Follow the Sun Lager as a new core beer. The 4.2% alcohol-by-volume (ABV) brew is available on draft and in six packs of 12-oz cans at Karl Strauss’ nine Southern California locations. Brewmaster Paul Segura made the announcement.

The light-bodied American lager has notes of crisp malt and a subtle hop bitterness. The beer’s launch also marks a change in Karl Strauss packaging. Follow the Sun will be joined by core beers Aurora Hoppyalis IPA, Boat Shoes Hazy IPA, and Tower X West Coast IPA in 12-oz cans later this spring.

“The words ‘crisp’, ‘clean’, and ‘refreshing’ are thrown around a lot with lagers, but we really feel like we hit that trifecta with this beer,” Segura said. “Karl has been a staple in San Diego since 1989, and Follow the Sun symbolizes our passion for sharing not only our craft, but a piece of the beautiful city we get to call home, with people from all over.”

Karl Strauss has five San Diego County locations: 4S Ranch, Carlsbad, Downtown, San Marcos (The Outpost beer garden), and Sorrento Mesa. The brewery also has brewpubs in Anaheim, Costa Mesa, Downtown Los Angeles, and Temecula. Several bars, restaurants, and retailers are also carrying Follow the Sun.

Karl Strauss is celebrating its 35th anniversary in 2024. Details on future anniversary events will be released in the coming weeks.

Last summer, Karl Strauss was voted as one of San Diego’s Best Craft Breweries in The San Diego Union-Tribune’s 2023 Readers Poll. Only 10 made the list.
