Back when Jack MacPherson was tending bar at the West End, some dorky beer salesperson stopped in promoting a new type of Ale.
Normally these people would get their asses reamed and run out. As far as Jack was concern, there were only a handful of beers worth drinking. However, this one sparked his attention for the obvious.
“Silverback Ale,” the salesperson pitched, plopping a six-pack on the bar.
Hummm … Albert, Silverback Gorilla, or Ale – sounds like an appropriated beverage that would fit perfect for Mac Meda. And of all things, brewed by the Wynkoop Brewing Company … in Colorado, United States since 1858 … another humm … is that not the same state that Coors is brewed, another Mac Meda beach favorite?

Here is how the story goes. Huge Mac Meda Convention at WindanSea. Cops like always were waiting out of sight, usually lined up like a fright train somewhere in Bird Rock or at the top of Nautilus St; glued to their radios, tapping fingers on the dashboard, just waiting to bust underage drinkers.
And the wishful wish of finally put the end to the La Jolla outlaw drinking group that had been terrorizing the so-called respected citizens of La Jolla for the last 5-6 years. Oh my … such bad boys and girls of the beach life.

The Mac Meda Destruction Co. sounds like a joke, started as a joke, thrived as a joke and ended up like a joke.
Or is it?
Some of the teen-age, members of this loosely organized group boast the motto, “Drinking Destruction and Sex”
Here’s the joke punch line, written Jan 10 (1965):
On that day, beer flowed freely among the young Mac Meda crowd – nearly 200 of them minors – at a secluded grazing pasture of Carmel Valley, just north of the San Diego City limits.
Fifty police cars raided the teen-aged car caravan “beer blast” Four youth were arrested on charges of possession of alcoholic beverages and will be tried March 2 in a North Country Municipal Court, Oceanside.

For the locals back in the early 1960s, La Jolla’s Torrey Pines Cliff were known for three things, 1) the Glider Field, 2) Blacks Beach’s for surfing and nakedness, and 3) for pushing cars off.
Okay, the first two are still what the cliffs are known for, however the third, it is been outlawed for obviously reasons.
Back in the late 1930s Torrey Pines was a quick way to get rid of that junker, you know those white elephant Model Ts (now worth their weight in gold) that were a dime a dozen and taken up space in the garage. It wasn’t until old man Black built a road down to the beach was when the quick disposable dump site discovered. At one time there was a number of Model-Ts laying at the bottom.

Back in 2000 Jack thought it was be pretty cool to let Mars know of Mac Meda. So, not knowing all the details of how he or others did it, Mac Meda joined the mission of exploration and discovery.
A compact disc bearing Mac Meda Destruction Co was included on the next Mars Exploration Rover-2003 that would search for geologic evidence for water. Because once you find water … well you guess it, you can make beer.
One of the rumors was that there was a Mac Meda sticker placed inside the Exploration Rover by a NASA geek … Sorry as of this date we have not seen any evidences there was one. But we do like the claim to fame thought, but if you do find one, please let us know.
