We are so proud to have Chad Berkey as our bar manager at Aero Club. He is very passionate about the bar, whiskey and crafting cocktails. When Chad isn’t working at the bar, or being a new dad, he also runs his own business called Tin Play: http://www.tinplay.com/. We use his products at Aero Club!
Oh did we mention that Chad is also an author? His new book, The North American Whiskey Guide From Behind The Bar is available now on Amazon – Hard Cover & Kindle: http://www.amazon.com/North-American-Whiskey-Guide-Behind/dp/1624140769
Here’s a blog post about the Guide: http://agentlemansword.com/2014/12/the-north-american-whiskey-guide-from-behind-the-bar/
We are proud to carry The BenRiach Single Malt Scotch Whisky. Since 1898, The BenRiach has been distilling some of the finest whisky in “ ’Heart of Speyside’, between the village of Rothes and the town of Elgin, in the North-East of Scotland.”
What makes BenRiach stand apart from the “other Spey Valley distilleries, the traditional floor maltings with their distinctive pagoda style chimneys can produce peated, malted barley, enabling the distillery to capture the defining taste of peat reek in a few of their special bottlings.”
Currently (as of 6/24/14), we have these BenRiach whiskys in stock.
- Single Malt Limited Release 2000 (bottle 558 of 619) “Oloruso Sherry Finish”
- Single Malt Aged 12 Years
- Single Malt Aged 12 Years, “Horizons”, triple distilled
- Single Malt Aged 16 Years
- Single Malt Aged 17 Years “Solstice”, heavily peated Port Finish
- Single Malt Aged 25 Years “Authentics”, peated
- Single Malt Aged 17 Years “Septendecim” peated

Last year, Shawn from San Diego Beer Insider did a story about Aero Club and the Regal Beagle down the street.
Here is the part where he talks about Aero:
“The 1st noteworthy stop is the Aero Club. The Aero Club is a San Diego Institution and is a throw back to the days when San Diego was a world leader in the aerospace industry.
I have a sentimental attachment to this bar as well. Several years ago I was on a date with a hot girl. We had been on a few dates and I really dug her, but this one wasn’t going my way and looked like it might be the last. I happened to live in this area at the time so I asked if we could stop for a drink on the way back. She agreed and we wound up having a great time and discussion. We were married a couple of years later and she is still the love of my life.
The Aero Club is a pretty small place and the pool tables in the back are so squeezed in that they have some sawed off sticks to make those difficult shots. I’m including this bar with the beer bars although they actually have turned more into a whiskey bar; a recent change since for years they were licensed for beer only. They were evidently pretty excited about the modified liquor license, they have about as huge of a spirits collection as I’ve seen.”
