Green Flash x Knockaround
Inspired by craft, art and people. Driven to create things we love. Based in America’s Finest City.
Green Flash Brewing Co. and Knockaround have a friends first, and collaboration second philosophy. To truly create something special between brands there needs to exist an authentic relationship, a mutual respect, and an alignment of values.
With an appreciation of each other’s craft and an irrevocable passion for San Diego’s community and culture, a Green Flash x Knockaround collaboration made perfect sense. Both brands thrive on a commitment to culture, a labor of love, and an extremely loyal fan following. We share an excitement for keeping our fans thirsty for more by consistently producing experimental, limited release projects.
We couldn't be more excited about this special collaborative project. We've worked hard with Green Flash Brewing Co. to bring you the best of both our worlds—a limited pair of sunglasses and a special release beer.

Featuring golden yellow frames that fade to amber with reflective, polarized sunset lenses, each pair comes packed with a keg shell-print microfiber protective pouch, custom Knockaround beer sticker, and collector's card, inside a custom box.

Brightside Berliner Weisse
This special release beer was brewed to represent the quintessential San Diego ‘experience,’ where both our companies are headquartered. To complement San Diego’s year-round warm weather, we decided on a refreshing Berliner Weisse-style brew. This beer style dates back to the 16th century and has enjoyed a resurgence among beer enthusiasts of late. Putting our own spin on this traditional brew we incorporated cucumber, resulting in a bright, refreshing wheat ale with a touch of tartness and a finish of cucumber essence.
Our Brightside Berliner Weisse was brewed using malted wheat, pilsner malt, and Czech Saaz hops. This session beer sits at 4% ABV allowing you to enjoy just a couple more while your hanging with your friends!
“Both brands thrive on a commitment to culture, a labor of love, and an extremely loyal fan following, and I’m thrilled to bring the two of us together to celebrate one of my favorite weeks of the year, San Diego Beer Week,”
— Ace Moyer, CEO & Founder of Knockaround.
“Knockaround’s vibrant style and creativity combined with our passion for craft brewing resulted in a pair of beer sunglasses and a special beer release craft beer fans will covet. Bringing together like-minded artisans and designers passionate about their craft is always something we enjoy being a part of, whether it is food pairings, beer collaborations, and now eyewear. We are excited to showcase our collaborative project this year at San Diego Beer Week,”
— Mike Hinkley, CEO & Co-Founder of Green Flash Brewing Company.
