Brewery Count Breaks 150

With the addition of breweries like Viewpoint Brewing, Alta Brewing, Thorn Barrio Logan, and Escondido Brewing, San Diego now boasts 152 operational brewhouses. We also added back to the list Oggi’s Carmel Mountain Ranch, which is now the last Oggi’s in San Diego County still brewing. That company’s sister business, Left Coast Brewing, is opening a Mission Viejo location this summer, as well as a Left Coast Brewing Restaurant in Orange County. Ownership hopes to open a San Diego tasting room at some point down the line. View the full list on our website, WestCoasterSD.com.

Modern Times Now 30% Employee-Owned

Modern Times Beer announced in July that 30% of the company is now held in an employee stock ownership plan (ESOP), through the repurchase of shares held by outside investors. Majority owner Jacob McKean says “this is my single proudest achievement as Founder & CEO of Modern Times.” A press release

stated that “it is the goal of Modern Times to work towards 100 percent employee ownership.” The ESOP deal structure was facilitated by Ambrose Advisors, with Neil Brozen of Ventura ESOP Fiduciary Services overseeing the ESOP in an independent role. The four-year-old brewery is the first in California with this business model. Other brands include Boston’s Harpoon, Fort Collins’ New Belgium and Odell, and Bend’s Deschutes. “Modern Times is proof that a start-up brewery can compete and win in the craft beer market without selling out, all the while taking outstanding care of our employees and rewarding our investors,” says McKean, who wrote more about the decision in a post on the Modern Times website.

SPEAKER SERIES

If you love craft beer

or work in the industry, don’t miss the Summit. You’ll have the chance to meet your favorite brewers as well as brewers that you’ve never heard of but need to know.

C O N T I N U E D F R O M PA G E 8 100,000 barrels of beer. The aforementioned development includes additional infrastructure and “fermentation improvements” as well as expansion of the brewery’s packaging areas. The latter will allow for a greater variety of packaging formats in the future. Back at home, the company has brought on Luis Lapostol to serve as lead brewer at its original Vista brewery. Lapostol spent nearly four years in the same role with SLO Brewing Company in San Luis Obispo, California. Prior to that, the Cal Poly SLO graduate worked at Central Coast wineries. Mother Earth is also sharing news about expansion of its distribution network including key regions across the nation, as well as Brazil. New states include Georgia (launching in August) and Rhode Island (October). Building on previously reached regions, Mother Earth beers will now be distributed throughout the entirety of Oregon after the company signed into the Great Artisan Beverage distribution network, plus all of Utah care of an agreement with Utah Craft Beverages. According to Mother Earth vice president Kevin Hopkins, additional market announcements are forthcoming.

Brewers Association Promotes Independence

A recent study commissioned by Brewbound and conducted Nielsen found that “independent” and “independentlyowned” strongly resonated with the majority (81 percent) of craft beer drinkers. Increasingly, they are looking for differentiation between what’s being produced by small and independent craft brewers versus Big Beer and acquired brands. In response, the Brewers Association unveiled a seal for eligible independent craft breweries to add to their packaging. As of press time, 1,415 breweries had adopted the seal. Currently, there are more than 5,300 small and independent craft brewers in the United States; these brewers make up 99% of the total number of breweries in the country, yet just 12% of sales. The Brewers Association consists of 3,800+ paid members, but even non-members can adopt the seal. Locally, breweries that plan to adopt the seal include Mother Earth Brew Co, Modern Times Beer, Second Chance Beer Company, New English Brewing, Karl Strauss, Midnight Jack Brewing, Eppig Brewing, Bagby Beer, Societe Brewing, Automatic Brewing, and Amplified Ale Works.

More BA News

In mid-April, the Brewers Association announced that they had made several changes to their marketing and advertising code in order to curb breweries from using offensive or sexist names and labels (see our May issue, page 8 for more details). In mid-July, Brewbound reported that Maryland’s Flying Dog Brewery officially terminated its membership, with the brewery’s CEO

AUGUST 2017

Jim Caruso saying that “this sort of policy is nothing more than a thinly veiled side door to censorship.” He also told Brewbound, “It’s anti-free enterprise. It’s interfering with their competitors’ business. It’s thinking for consumers. Americans hate thought police, and they hate censorship.” Brewers Association CEO Bob Pease defended the policy changes to Brewbound as “reasonable” and “responsible.” To read more of the back-and-forth, visit Brewbound.com and search “Flying Dog”. •

Cover Story

Serving Those Who Serve at Vista’s SpecHops Brewing Words by Ryan Lamb | Photos by Tim Stahl

T

ucked away in a North County industrial park lies SpecHops Brewing, where David “Spook” Casperson brews Reinheitsgebot-adhering beers with unwavering precision on a 15-barrel system. His background in special operations, or Spec Ops, led to the brewery name, which he trademarked by 2012 after sharing beer made from a Mr. Beer Kit with friends. Casperson went on to take “a firehose of information” from the UC Davis summer brewing course, before building the brewery’s exhaustive business plan with his wife, Stephanie, who works as the director of educational technology at San Marcos Unified School District. Some readers may even remember a few of their SpecHops beers popping up as a collaboration with Aztec Brewery around that time. In 2013, Casperson jumped at the opportunity to join Modern Times Beer founder Jacob McKean on an all-encompassing webinar, as a reward for donating to their Kickstarter. “His number one rule was that we can be friends if you make good craft beer and you have clean business practices.” Casperson similarly looks up to San Diego pioneers like Tomme Arthur, co-founder of The Lost Abbey. “I saw him out at a restaurant, and I told him that I wouldn’t be in this business if he hadn’t kicked open the door for the rest of us.” He also cites Stone’s uphill battle with educating the public about beer, and Green Flash’s risky move of betting on West Coast IPA, as inspiration. David and Stephanie ended up looking at 35 locations before signing a lease on Vista’s Activity Drive. The build-out that followed was meticulous. “Every aspect had 15 engineers looking over it,” he says, “because you don’t go anywhere without a solid team.” The first batches were brewed in January, and the tasting room opened the following month. A July 3 military charity fundraising event at The High Dive featured a keg of SpecHops beer which kicked in just a couple of hours. The next phase of SpecHops’ operations focuses on what Casperson calls “slow social media.” A small, soundproof office in a corner of the tasting room houses what resembles a miniature television studio, geared up to record stories of service from war veterans, their families, and others who have “participated in America.” The plan is to edit the footage and upload it to GetYourStoryTold.com. “The beer pays for the privilege of gathering the stories. A lot of places latch on to telling stories of service, but here it’s built into our DNA. If you’ve participated in a cancer foundation, if you’ve rescued dogs, if you were a firefighter...those are the stories we want to tell.” •

verybody loves a well-themed beer article. Connecting the brews back to a common thread can really help the reader contextualize and connect to the material. It’s also waaaay more work than picking two breweries at random to write about, which is why I seldom bother. Unfortunately the “but I don’t like working!” excuse finds little purchase with editors, so I’m left fumbling to retrofit a theme to this month’s column. My selections didn’t make it easy. The posh gastropub at Viewpoint Brewing Co. and sleek tasting room of Bay City Brewing Co. don’t have a ton of thematic crossover. And I’ve been warned

that my original pitches of “Places to Enjoy Beer in a Glass!” or “Establishments with Bathrooms!” would continue to be dismissed. So it is with mandated enthusiasm that I bring you this month’s theme: “Breweries That Are Somewhat LagoonAdjacent Per Google Maps.” Enjoy! I had an immediate affinity for the Bay City Brewing Co. (3760 Hancock St., San Diego) tasting room. It has a million tiny details that seem purposefully and thoughtfully aligned. For example, there are televisions to enjoy sportball, but none were positioned over the main bar. This created a small, but sensible divide between those casually sipping away and those more intent on

giving beers and/or peers their focus. There wasn’t really a bad seat in the place either, courtesy of huge bay doors on either end of the room facilitating a very welcome breeze through it. Even when tabling interior design, I kept finding things to love about the atmosphere. The old school hip hop soundtrack overhead seemed plucked directly from my high school mixtapes, gracing me with a fleeting sense of being relevant again. Service was consistently prompt and friendly. The brewery even had a couple of terribly cute dogs ambling about. I understand that’s not necessarily a selling point for most, but for those like me that vasty prefer pups to people, it’s a real value add.

The only flaw I encountered was the bathroom wallpapered with beer periodicals that failed to include a single one of my articles, which I’ve decided to interpret as a personal jab. Hurtful, Bay City Brewing Co. Hurtful. Flights of beer at Bay City Brewing Co. are delivered in a chunky board that provides quasiergonomic handles on either edge. It’s more functional than flashy, but it establishes that the safe delivery of its precious cargo is paramount. I appreciate that, especially in light of having 15 different beers to potentially taste through. That kind of volume really necessitates a tasting board affixed to a pack mule, but I’m guessing some nitpicky city ordinance would take issue with it. My favorite of the haul had to be the The Sin Ship Baltic Porter. This garnet-hued sipper brimmed with an enticing nutty aroma that likewise featured coffee and chocolate in the nose. Its dark, fruit-forward flavors played off the more subtle notes of currant and chocolatecovered cherries well, departing with the merest touch of boozy heat in the finish. The schwarzbier was similarly well-executed. Its roasty, welcoming aroma neatly foreshadowed the cocoa, squaw bread, and moderate sweetness of the first sip. It’s also possible that I was so enamored with hearing Black Sheep on the radio again that I couldn’t be objective about the beer, but I’d like to believe they were legitimately delicious. The Coffee Pale Ale, a collaboration with local roaster Swell Coffee, had some lingering pine finish, but allowed the cold brew coffee blended in to perform most of the heavy lifting. It was much the same for the Wired Device Nitro Milk Stout. The 72 and Hoppy did offer a rich fruity aroma of mango, but that’s where the richness dropped off. It stands to reason that a session IPA

(which is already something of an oxymoron) is going to fight an uphill battle to woo a West Coast palate, but it still fell short of its potential to me. It did offer some lemon peel character along with some piney resonance, especially as it warmed, but it had a fizzy, almost mineral character that reminded me of seltzer water. It’s a tough style, no doubt, and I'll make sure to revisit when it comes out in cans. Even if some of the beers didn’t whip my hair back, I’d still suggest giving Bay City Brewing Co. a chance if you haven’t. Those beers I mentioned could be better tuned to your palate than mine. Moreover, the space itself and excellent service more than justify a visit, especially if you're looking for a “pregame” spot for any event at Valley View Casino Center a.k.a. The Sports Arena, which is just across the street. Plus they have the sexiest accent-lit fermenters in the game, which more than compensates for the obscured bay view. On the opposite end of the inland water-view continuum, Viewpoint Brewing Co. (2201 San Dieguito Drive, Del Mar) delivers entirely on the promise of its name. There are few breweries out there with a more delightful backdrop, even with Modern Times’ front-row seat to The Dinghy Doctor warehouse in the running. This place will be a prime location to spectate a stunning sunset against the San Dieguito Lagoon, enjoy an unfettered coastal breeze, or to callously mock the commuters stuck on the I-5. Del Mar’s first brewery is likewise a full restaurant, offering wine and beer from a select group of SD compatriots, and nibble. Note that my lack of pluralization is intentional for the last item. On the media preview night I attended I was able to acquire exactly one passed sample, so it’s the only one I can confirm. And as much

as I’d like to gripe about this decidedly first world problem, that little peanut sauce-dolloped oxtail fritter was damned exquisite. I can’t often say that 100% of the menu (that I experienced) was perfect, but Viewpoint Brewing Co. gamed the system perfectly. At press time they had five of their own beers available, but the plan of record is to expand those offerings into where current guest taps reside. The brews pursue a motif of being “clean and true to style” per brewer Mychal “Mo” Katomski, which, for the most part, is a measure they meet. The standout was the French Smash Saison, a yeasty, stone fruit-forward sipper with prominent notes of clove and pear. It was followed closely by the Red Rye IPA, which despite being a tamer version of the style than most, summoned flowery, bready aromatics with notable hints of black pepper and a nice fruitiness. The other two beers I was able to try underwhelmed by comparison to the first pair, but still delivered on their “to style” promise. The Mandarina Pale Ale had an undeniable citrus and tangerine nose to them, but offered only muted equivalents on the same in the flavor. Their SMASH Chinook ultimately suffered a bit from its single-hoppedness, with slightly blunted spice aromas and a lightweight piney bitterness that lacked sufficient punch to pay tribute to the source material. Still, these are very minor gripes for beers that are the first offerings out of a very promising new enterprise. So there you have it. A new crop of beers to try and a satellite-verified body of water to enjoy them by. If you enjoyed that, please stay tuned for next month’s equally potent theme: Breweries That Do and Don’t Serve Pilsners. •

in Ensenada By Sheldon M. Kaplan

L

ike Pavlov’s dog, I too occasionally experience salivation induced by anticipation. Mine though is not brought on by the ringing of a bell, but rather triggered by the promise of good craft beer and the last toll booth just before Ensenada on the Carretera Tijuana - Ensenada. The choices of good Ensenada-brewed craft beer are in such abundance these days that this piece of writing cannot fully do justice to the growing list of 35+ breweries who are members of the Brewers Association of Ensenada. The Ensenada-area breweries range in size from the numerous nano systems at various brewing collectives, to the thirty-barrel system at Agua Mala’s new brewery. The growth in both quality and volume of Ensenada beer has increased exponentially in the last half decade, and San Diego beers and brewers have made a significant contribution to this movement through inspiration, education and collaboration. One of the pioneers of Ensenada’s burgeoning craft brewing movement is Nathaniel Schmidt, founder and proprietor of Agua Mala, currently the area's largest craft brewery. Schmidt, a Mexico City native, studied marine and fisheries biology at California's Humboldt State back in the late nineties. His introduction to craft beer was during this period in Northern California,

predominantly at the Lost Coast Brewery. After graduation, he moved down to Ensenada to run one of the first bluefin tuna farms, and then later started his own aquaculture farm, focusing on striped bass, flounder and totoaba. During this period, Schmidt's wife, Ashley, also from Mexico City, was working in hospitality in the Guadalupe Valley’s wine country. One day after attending the annual harvest festival, Valle de Guadalupe Vendimia, Schmidt remarked to his wife that he “had drunk enough wine, and that what he really needed was a good beer.” The only problem with that idea back then was that only macro-brewed lagers were available locally. It was this dearth of good beer that sparked the idea to start brewing at home. The closest brewing store to Ensenada at that time was Home Brew Mart in San Diego. So in 2005 Schmidt made the pilgrimage to Linda Vista and started gathering gear for his hobby. A little later on he joined San Diego club QUAFF and also became a “Recognized” BJCP judge. He recalls how helpful and encouraging Doug Duffield at Home Brew Mart was in these early days of his brewing adventure. In fact, the first beer Schmidt would later brew at Agua Mala, “Marea Roja” (“Red Tide”), arguably still the brewery’s flagship brew, is a hoppy amber ale based on the first beer Schmidt ever brewed at home –

an amber ale from the Home Brew Mart recipe binder. Schmidt says that he initially got feedback on his beers from local winemakers in the Valley that he’s friendly with. “They gave good feedback…they have good palates and [they] would tell me what what was wrong with it,” he says. Friends and neighbors started to enjoy drinking Schmidt's homebrews, including Tomas Fernandez, who is now a partner at Agua Mala. Following a brewing accident in his home kitchen, Fernandez stepped in to provide some space to brew at a local shipyard that he owned and operated. After work, local guys would hang out at the shipyard to try the beer and the word started to spread. Schmidt also started taking growlers of beer with him to a local restaurant, Manzanilla, and the owner said that if Nathaniel wanted to, he could bring in some kegs and they would try and sell the beer. Manzanilla is still an Agua Mala account to this day. After a while, a few more local restaurants got wind of this relatively unusual beer – especially for both its time and place – and also wanted in. Schmidt, who at the time was still running his fish farm, also asked his fish distributor in Mexico City, a purveyor of all types of restaurant supplies, to see if he had any interest in distributing the beer. The distributor agreed to pick up the fledgling brand and started to distribute to a number of Mexico City accounts, again many of whom still purchase the beer to this day. By 2010, Schmidt had outgrown the available shipyard space, and by then he had also formalized a partnership on the venture with Fernandez. They decided to relocate to a more brewing-specific environment, building the original 3.5-barrel Agua Mala brewery in a shipping container, continually adding more tanks as they grew. As time went on they also began adding more containers, “like Legos,” says Schmidt. Four years later, they added a bar and a tasting room using more shipping containers and bar tops made from oak from pallets they recycled. The “reuse and recycle” ethos is still alive and well at Agua Mala; unlike most of the local breweries who have their water trucked in, Agua Mala uses city water which then goes through a reverse osmosis process. The water profile is then adjusted to suit the style of whatever beer is being brewed at that time. The excess water from the reverse osmosis process is used for the organic gardens that provide some of the vegetables for the onsite restaurant, and the balance is used for brewery cleaning. This practice continues at the new brewery location, in El Sauzal, an industrial area not too far from the Ensenada end of the “Ruta de Vino,” the primary road that runs into Guadalupe Valley. The original brewery and restaurant location, a little closer to Ensenada, remains open to the public, with the old brewhouse being used primarily for R&D and/or one-off brews. A note to foodies: the items on the restaurant menu are all locally-sourced and sustainable, and the menu was formulated by Schmidt's friend Drew Deckman, a Michelin-starred chef who runs the renowned Deckman’s at El Mogor restaurant at the Mogor Badan Winery in the Valley, as well as other fine eating establishments in Baja. Agua Mala’s beers are now distributed in most of the major cities in Mexico, and at some limited locations in San Diego – mostly the South Bay area – plus some accounts in Orange County and Los Angeles. Expect to see a lot more of Agua Mala beers in Southern California when the new bottling line at the new brewery gets up to full speed this year.

AUGUST 2017

Approximately a 1 mile drive from the new Agua Mala brewery, heading towards the Pacific Ocean – if you hit the water you’ve gone too far, but not by much – you will find Wendlandt Brewery, founded and operated by Eugenio Romero (Wendlandt is his family name). This particular location, Wendlandt’s second, opened in 2013, and is currently a production-only brewery with an attached tasting room. The original brewpub location, in part of Ensenada’s primary tourist district on Blvd. Lázaro Cárdenas, opened in 2012, and is still in operation as the Wendlandt bar and restaurant, but all the brewing is now done at the El Sauzal production brewery. Romero’s San Diego connection is strong, as he attended SDSU on a tennis scholarship before graduating with a business degree in 2006. He recalls “growing up and drinking Tecate and Corona” before discovering craft beer during his sojourn at SDSU – clearly there is value in a good education! After graduation Romero initially worked in Southern California for a company that provided surfboard blanks, before quitting that job to complete a Masters of Administration degree in 2010, for which he studied in both Mexico and Barcelona, Spain. In 2012, sensing opportunity in the growing local craft beer market, Romero opened the original brewpub location using a twenty-gallon homebrew system. “We were brewing every day…I would take the carboys home to ferment and then bring them back [to the brewpub] when they were ready. At one point we had forty carboys in some stage of fermentation,” he told me, almost in bemused disbelief at what they originally managed to accomplish. Once again, San Diego’s Home Brew Mart factors into the mix. As Romero recalls, Larry Monasakanian (now a rep for Fall Brewing) helped out a lot. “That's one of the main reasons our quality is up to spec. He even came to brew with us at the brewpub location in the beginning,” Romero reports. “We are so grateful” he says with heartfelt emphasis. “It is so good to have a great beer city so close to us. San Diego has helped us a lot…we had people coming into the brewpub who had been drinking beers from them [San Diego breweries] and that is one of the reasons we tried to be as good as we can be…we [the Ensenada brewing community] got a lot of help from San Diego brewers – which has helped raise the quality of the beer in Baja.” When Wendlandt moved production from the brewpub to the production brewery location, they initially grew the brewing system to 35 gallons, “double batching into 80-gallon plastic fermenters and then cold crashing and kegging in the cool box,” says Romero. Even with the additional production capacity they were still unable to keep up with just the demand at the Wendlandt pub and restaurant, so in 2014 they upgraded to a seven-barrel system, which also allowed them to start servicing other local draft accounts. That same year they also managed to get out their first two large format bottle releases, a Saison with Brettanomyces, aged for a year in wine barrels, and a “Christmas” Imperial Stout. In 2015, they added stainless fermenters and also started to bottle their seven core beers in 12oz bottles. The growth has been constant and Wendlandt beer is now available in most of the major Mexican cities. To keep up with demand, they added additional fermenters in 2016, and are currently planning to convert their production brewery to a 30-barrel brewhouse. As part of the “remodel” they are also planning a rooftop terrace with a bar and


restaurant overlooking the ocean. It should hopefully be open by the time the new brewhouse is up and running in early 2018. Not too far from the Wendlandt production brewery, on the way back into Ensenada from El Suazal, you will find the relatively new Cervecería Transpenisular brewpub with its seven-barrel brewhouse. The tasting room area is on two levels, so you can also watch them brewing from above while having a beer and a snack. Cervecería Transpenisular was founded by Collin Corrigan, a San Diegan who lives in Ensenada with his Mexican wife Gaby, who also helps out in the business. For many years prior to the brewery investment, Corrigan did business in both Tijuana and Ensenada as a distributor of screen printing supplies and equipment to both maquiladoras and other Baja screen printers. Consequently, he is well versed in both the culture as well as the bureaucracy of US/Mexico border trading. Corrigan is proud of the fact that he has brought some additional US investment into the area by building the brewery and associated pub. He is keen to point out that he has been part of the local community for some time now, and as he definitively states, “not just a guy coming to dig gold.” It was during his time living in La Mesa that Corrigan started frequenting the local Hoffer’s Cigar Bar, which has a large number of craft beers, both on tap and in bottles, which in turn helped inspire the Transpeninsular venture. “I spent many a night there drinking many local San Diego brews,” he says with a grin. To ensure that they would be brewing good beer from the getgo, he hired Cal Ryan, a master brewer with a pedigreed background. Ryan has brewed at Surly Brewing Co in Minneapolis, at Stone Brewing Co and at URBN in El Cajon during the period that URBN tried and failed to resurrect the bankrupted brewery that had previously been El Cajon Brewing Co. Ryan, who

is based in San Diego, visits Transpeninsular several times a week, and has also helped train a local resident head brewer, Juan Grijalva, on the new system. They are brewing many different styles, from a Double IPA to a guava and pineapple-flavored wheat beer called “Guapina.” The goal is for Grijalva to take over all the primary brewing responsibilities going forward. As for distribution, Corrigan’s initial goal is to focus only on draft accounts in Ensenada. He then plans on working with Cervecería Insurgente in Tijuana to distribute to that market before expanding distribution to the Mexicali and Tecate areas. After that, he plans to look at the possibilities for distribution into San Diego. That said, don’t be too surprised if you walk into Hoffer’s Cigar Bar in the not too distant future and see a special keg of Transpenisular cerveza on tap. The last of the current bigger brew houses is located towards the southern end of Blvd. Lázaro Cárdenas, Ensenada’s main boulevard that runs parallel to the coast. Here you will find Cervecería Doble C, owned and operated by twin brothers Alan and Omar Celis – hence the “Doble [double] C” – both born and raised in Ensenada. Around 2010, Alan was working at a local accounting firm when he took a vacation to Europe and was amazed by the variety of beers he found there. By 2012 he and Omar had set up a five-gallon home brew system in their mother’s kitchen, and by 2015 they decided to upgrade to a one-barrel system at their current location. To help them dial in their recipes, they managed to persuade Vincent Falcone, a San Diego-based brewer at the time, to help them refine their brewing techniques. “The twins” met Falcone when he was the brewer at the Pacific Beach AleHouse. Not too long thereafter, the Pacific Beach AleHouse suffered a fire and was closed for many months while it underwent repairs and

WESTCOASTERSD.COM

remodeling. Falcone ended up moving to La Jolla Brewing Company, and has now moved on to brew in Colorado; however, in 2015 he would go down to Ensenada on weekends to help the twins brew. As the twins brewed more beer and gained more brewing skills, they realized that they were going to need a bigger system, and so in 2016 they installed a 10-barrel brewhouse with two 20-barrel fermenters and four 10-barrel fermenters. As they have grown, the San Diego influence has remained strong: “we are 100 percent influenced by San Diego,” says Alan, and to that end that they have collaborated on a number of occasions with San Diego brewers. Pat Korn, Barrelmaster at Green Flash Brewing Co’s Cellar 3, and Cosimo Sorrentino, the now Denmark-based former head brewer at Monkey Paw, headed down to Ensenada earlier this year, both in a private capacity, to do a collaboration brew with Doble C. The beer, which was released at the Ensenada Beer Festival in March was, according to Korn, “a hazy West Coast style IPA that was inspired by Alpine’s Nelson.” Korn and Sorrentino, along with numerous other San Diego-based beer judges helped with the beer competition that is associated with the festival. Korn notes that “the whole Baja brewing scene is like San Diego’s was 10 to 15 years ago: small with super

38

AUGUST 2017

passionate brewers.” He adds, “there are some really killer beers down there.” The Doble C guys have also collaborated on a hefeweizen with El Cajon’s Burning Beard Brewing Co, connecting through Brian Kelly, a brewer at Burning Beard who is originally from Tijuana. Kelly, who is coincidentally also an identical twin – his brother Andrew Kelly is the senior brewer at Coronado Brewing – had previously helped the Doble C twins to help scale up their recipes to their 10-barrel system. This was not the first time that the Burning Beard guys have done a collaboration with an Ensenada brewery. As founder/ brewer Jeff Wiederkehr recalls, “we also did a collaboration with Wendlandt, a California Common. That beer was pretty awesome.” For now, Doble C’s beers are only distributed in Mexico, however, if you can’t get down there to try them, don’t worry too much, as soon they will be coming to you. As Celis relates, “we are planning to open a small-batch, five-barrel brewery and tasting room in Chula Vista before the end of the year.” In addition to the aforementioned larger production craft breweries, the majority of members of the Association of Craft Brewers of Ensenada, 35 at last count, and probably more by the time you read this, are considered nano breweries. These “nanos" vary in size from approximately a half-barrel to three-barrel systems in size. A few like Escafandra, Cerveceria Origines, Canneria, Media Perra, and El Chivo Gruñón are dedicated breweries and are operated by pro brewers with brewing as their primary focus. In some instances, a number of brewers will share space and equipment in an effort to contain costs, and also for the general camaraderie and the sharing of knowledge that comes with that arrangement. These are known as “colectivos” or “collectives” in English. Some of the nano breweries are operated by part-time brewers who have full-time day jobs and brew on the side, either individually or again as part of a brewing collective. From a U.S. perspective, think of these parttimers as “home/pro brewer hybrids” who are brewing the majority of their beer for public, not private consumption, either in warehouses or in private homes. The collectives vary in size and “membership” and there is also some occasional crossover, with brewers being part of a number of different collectives and/or just one-off collaborations. These nano-brewed beers are predominantly served at local craft-friendly bars such as Lucky Irish Pub, Distrito Barra Publica, Colectivo 18 Bar, Tap Patio and at the Bajabrews Colectivo Cervecero (Baja Brewers Collective) located not too far from the Wendlandt production brewery in El Sauzal. At some of these bars/tasting rooms you will also find craft brews from Tijuana and Mexicali. A good example of one of these collective brewing operations is Zombie Brew Labs, founded in 2010 by Carlos “Charlie” Carrillo and his friend Mauricio Peralta, both industrial engineers by day. Carrillo and Peralta were introduced to brewing by their friend and brewer Jose “Cheche” Arce, who now also has his own brand of beer called Bruer, which operates out of a warehouse brewing collective called CCN, an acronym for “Colectivo Cervecero del Norte,” loosely translated as the “Collective Brewers of the North.” The CCN brewing location and associated costs are shared with three other brands: Cardera, Todos Santos, and Rocks Beer. Cheche was the initial instigator for Zombie Brew Labs when he bought an extract kit from Home Brew Mart. Once Carrillo and Peralta saw him brewing, they too jumped into brewing with gusto. Eventually they got to a point where they thought the quality of the beer was good enough to make it available to the public. This initially occurred at Distrito Barra Publica when the bar was inaugurated in December of 2011, and where at the time Cheche was also a partner. In the interim period Charlie moved to a job in Mexicali and Mauricio ended up moving for work to Phoenix, Arizona. In order to keep Zombie Brew Labs going, Mauricio trained and tried a number of brewers to take over for them, before eventually settling on his


childhood friend Rodolfo Flores. Brewing is now done at Flores' house, and more recently Orlando Ortiz joined the group to help with management. Zombie Brew Labs has also done numerous collaborations with larger breweries such as Agua Mala, as well as at nanos such as Bruer with their old amigo Cheche, plus some collabs with other brewers who operate out of CCN collective. Their latest venture will be with Cheche and Bruer when they open up the Zombie-Bruer Tasting room on Blvd. Lázaro Cárdenas. At the time of going to press they were waiting for the final signature on their permit which will allow them to serve alcohol to the public. Kathy Pedrin is a junior high school teacher in Ensenada. When she is not teaching English and graphic design she moonlights as a brewer with her friend Marycruz Felix. Together, they brew as Cachonda Cerveza Artisinal, on a one-barrel, home-based brewing system. These beers are then supplied to a number of the aforementioned Ensenada craft beer-friendly bars and tasting rooms. Kathy has been brewing for around three years and has also done a lot to help bring women into the brewing community, both in Ensenada and Mexico as a whole. As part of this effort she helps coordinate the “Mujeres Catadoras de Cerveza de Mexico,” loosely translated as “Women Brewers in Mexico.” This group was founded in Ensenada in 2012 by Yadira Espinoza, and as best as I can describe it, it is a combination of both craft beer appreciation and education run by women, and a healthy dose of much needed female empowerment in Mexico’s macho culture. Mujeres Catadoras de Cerveza de Mexico has now grown to over 2,000 members, with 22 coordinators of local group chapters in multiple Mexican cities, and there is now some international interest too. The coordinators are responsible for helping manage the local chapters and assisting the local members to organize and hold various meetings and events in an effort to go out and promote craft beer. The following is from a loose translation on the groups’ blog: “We promote the moderate and conscious consumption of good and true beer among women…we are interested in the women of our country to know more about this drink, and that we become experts in the subject matter, in order to transmit knowledge and brewing culture. We are part of the Brewing Revolution! We are women and we are powerful! We are beautiful and we are brewers! Cheers!” I’ll certainly drink to that! Heading back east into Guadalupe Valley from Ensenada, the first pueblo one encounters is in San Antonio de las Minas, also known as Villa de Juárez. It is here that you will find El Chivo Gruñón (“The Grumpy Goat”) nano brewery. The brewery is tucked away at the top of the hill in a cluster of various buildings on what was once a family ranch, which now also houses the associated Ochentos Pizza restaurant. The nano brewery system is “a Brew Magic half-barrel system modded out to a four-barrel system,” according to Juan Julian De Gracia, a current day MacGyver and the man responsible for the modifications. He is also the proprietor and co-founder of El Chivo Gruñón. Like many folk from Baja, MX, De Gracia grew up with relatives in both Baja and Southern California. For a long time his dad “Ochento" worked in Laguna running an auto repair shop, and De Gracia went to junior high and high school in Dana Point. It was on his first day at junior high where he met Larson Poole who became his best friend and now brother-in-law – they married sisters. Larson is now the brewer at and co-founder of El Chivo Gruñón, though they took a somewhat circuitous journey to each their current point. De Gracia’s mother, Madelyn, who had remained primarily in Baja, had a side business baking cookies that she sold locally. Some years later, Ochento badly injured his shoulder off-road racing in Baja and couldn’t work as a mechanic, so he returned to help at what had grown into a bigger bakery – notably rebuilt by community donations after the first bakery had burnt down with no insurance coverage. By 2005 they had added pizzas as a bakery item, though initially for take-out only. Word in the Valley quickly spread and the

pizza lines grew, and by 2008 people had according to De Gracia, “started to want to buy their pizza and just hang out,” and so over time the bakery evolved into the Ochentos Pizza restaurant. Meanwhile the aforementioned Larson Poole started brewing at home in Orange County. He would bring beers to Ochentos Pizza when he would come down and visit his friend. Over time these beers became pretty popular, and some may have perhaps made it into the hands of some customers, at least as rumor has it. De Gracia, like his dad, is a trained auto mechanic, but due to arthritis he had quit his trade and was helping to run the ever-expanding Ochentos Pizza. He also took notice of how the craft beer scene was starting to grow in and around Ensenada and in 2014 he called his friend Poole. “I had an idea and called Larson up on a whim,” he tells me. The idea was to start up a nano brewery at Ochentos Pizza and Poole readily agreed. Cut to three years later and El Chivo Gruñón is still growing steadily. The relatively small brewing system requires Larson to brew at least three times a week and they are now also bottling their beer in 12 ounce bottles. Cruise ship “craft beer tour” busses now stop by Ochentos Pizza on a regular basis and their beer

is also available at the Baja Brewers Collective in El Sauzal, where they have also opened up a secondary Ochentos Pizza location next to the other food offering there, El Local by Slow Burger. The aforementioned Baja Brewers Collective also serves beers from other local nano breweries including Old Mission, Escafandra, Origenes, Canneria, and Cachonda, as well as craft beers from Mexicali: Fauna, Urbana, and Cerveza Legion, and from Tijuana: Silenus, Border Psycho, and Insurgente. De Gracia, ever the tinkerer, has also been busy developing a line of keg washers, counter pressure fillers, bottle washers and the like under the “Chivomatic” brand, aimed at the growing nano brewery market. His partner in the “Chivomatic” venture is Douglas VomSteeg, a U.S. expat who up until fairly recently ran Cosecha 128, a brewery supply store in the Valley primarily for the nano brewing market. VomSteeg, who originally hails from Hemet, worked as high school teacher in Temecula in the nineties and early oughts. His homebrewing roots go back to the Temecula Home Brewers Club circa 1994, when one Vinnie Cilurzo, of later both Blind Pig and Russian River fame, was club president. It was, however, the calling of a different god that changed VomSteeg's life path, when in 2005 he and his wife Carrie and their son moved to Guadalupe Valley to start “a bible school for gringos.” He continued to brew at home, though much of his brewing was closeted so as not to arouse the wrath of some of his local Christian community, many of whom look askance at those who consume alcohol. By chatting with some of the local winemakers over the years, Douglas learned that they had difficulty getting supplies, and so he decided to try and start a side business servicing their needs. In a relatively short period of time, he began bringing in beer brewing supplies. He also started inviting folks from the San Diego craft brewing community to come and give talks about once a month at various breweries and restaurants under the “Baja Beerology” banner, with “Beer Without Borders” as an appropriate slogan. Ryan Brooks (Coronado Brewing and founder of the associated SouthNorte Brew Co), Kara Taylor (White Labs), Curtis and Liz Chism and Jeff Crane (Council Brewing Co), Rick Blankemeier (ex Stone and now Modern Times Brewing Co) and a host of others from San Diego's craft brewing community made the trip down south at various times to share their knowledge with the Baja brewers, who at times numbered more than 70 at these various meetings. Unfortunately for VomSteeg, Cosecha 128 grew a little faster in both scope and revenue than originally planned. That may not seem like a bad thing, however, the result of said growth would have required him to have to switch over from a sole proprietorship and register as a corporation. This change, with its attendant byzantine bureaucratic requirements that the Mexican government seems to be so fond of, put a major dent in his enthusiasm for the entity, and he recently decided to shut it down and focus his energies on his work with De Gracia on their nascent line of Chivomatic brewery equipment. On the plus side, in a move of camaraderie that many craft brewers would recognize, especially those from San Diego, Collin Corrigan of Cervecería Transpenisular has stepped into the breach to help bring in more supplies for the burgeoning Ensenada nanos. According to Corrigan, “we have been helping out the nano brewers who need more competitive pricing and we offer them goods from our stock. Out of respect to Miguel Loza [who runs the local home brew store], we are not servicing the homebrewer market unless they want to buy certain hops from us that he normally doesn't carry.” With that level of cooperation, and barring government interference or major moves by Mexican macro beer to stifle the movement, look out for even more good beer from Ensenada as we move forward, no doubt about it. Salud! •

H e ct o r F E R R E I R A a n d Pac o Tal a m a nt e : E n s e n a da B e e r F e st i val “I don't make beer, I make brewers,” says Hector “Chubuki” Ferreira with a chuckle. Chubuki, along with business partner Paco Talamante, are the founders and organizers of the ever growing, both in size and popularity, Ensenada Beer Festival. It is held in March and this year’s iteration was its sixth. Given that there is now a three-day, free brewing conference leading up to the festival, Chubuki may well be correct in his assessment. Talamante and Chubuki were both Ensenada homebrewers when they met at a small Oktoberfest in Ensenada in 2009. Chubuki was initially introduced to craft beer in the nineties, first by tasting New Belgium’s Fat Tire and later Ballast’s Point’s Yellowtail Pale Ale, as the beer was then known in those days. Chubuki’s foray into whole-grain brewing began with John Palmer’s How To Brew: Everything You Need to Know to Brew Beer Right the First Time. “I started homebrewing every Sunday while cooking carne asada with a bunch of Coors Light guys,” he says, still grinning at the thought of it. Supplies were initially sourced from Northern Brewer and later Home Brew Mart, which Chubuki discovered a couple of months into his new hobby. Not too long thereafter he emailed John Palmer with a brewing question and the two started to correspond more regularly. When Talamante and Chubuki set up the first festival in March of 2011 they invited Palmer who attended and has since returned. This year he gave two separate presentations at the festival’s brewing conference. Talamante and Chubuki also make sure that videos of the brewing conference are made free online to whomever wants to access them. “This is also about passion, not profit,” says Chubuki. When not organizing the festival, Talamante runs Canneria, a two-barrel brewery in Ensenada. “We have 14 beers all year long and lots of seasonals,” he tells me. He is also planning on eventually upgrading to a 15-barrel system. The initial festival in 2011 had some teething problems. Chubuki and Talamante were concerned that only a few people would show up, so they gave away 600 free tickets. On the day of, 2,100 folks showed up to sample beers from the 27 breweries participating. The associated beer competition, now known as “La Copa del Pacifico” – named after the ocean and not the fizzy yellow beer of the same name – was initially beset with problems and according to Chubuki, “back then, a lot of shitty beer.” Nathaniel Schmidt of Agua Mala ran the judging and recalls


“judging outside at a table in the heat.” Clearly not the best conditions in which to judge beers. Cut to this year, six years later and things are running pretty smoothly. The beer competition is now judged in Tijuana, a week before the festival itself, and both Mexican and San Diegan BJCP certified judges are utilized for this endeavor. This year 6,200 people bought tickets to sample beer from 120 breweries who poured during the 10 hour festival. In addition to some great food from local restaurants, the patrons were also entertained by music and DJs on three different stages at the Ensenada’s Cultural Center, the festival’s location, a beautiful building which was formerly the Hotel Riviera del Pacífico which originally opened in 1930. A fabulous venue for a beer festival and one heartily endorsed by this sometimes “beer festival jaded” writer. See you there next year.

M i g u e l Loz a : F o u n de r a n d p r o p r i et o r o f L a Casa De l Lu p u lo h o m e b r e w st o r e a n d R a n c h o Loz a H o p Far m Miguel Loza moved from Ensenada to San Diego in the 6th grade. Even though he and his wife and kids are settled in San Diego where Loza also has his regular day job, his Ensenada roots are still pretty strong. About a decade ago, he got interested in homebrewing and bought a kit from Home Brew Mart, before joining QUAFF in 2013. At around that same time he also had the idea to start growing hops on his family’s ranch in the Guadelupe Valley. This idea was met with some skepticism by a number of folks he met while

trying to set up the project. “Why don’t you just stick to growing avocados?” he was dismissively asked by one of them. Undeterred, Loza pursued this idea and continued doing research. He also managed to get some much appreciated and valuable assistance from Eric March who grows hops at his Star B Ranch in Ramona. In 2013, Loza planted Cascade, Centennial, Nugget, Mount Hood and Willamette hops on two acres at Rancho Loza. He says that the Cascade and Nugget seemed to fair best, and a year later he also planted some Chinook and Magnum hops. Loza has already brought in his fifth harvest, though the hop farm is still more of a hobby than a purely commercial venture. This is due to the relatively small area under cultivation, as well as the cost of nutritional supplements – the hops are organic and thus no artificial fertilizers are used. Adding to the overall cost is the high price of water in the Valley. Loza also realized that it was difficult for Ensenada homebrewers to get supplies, as the closest homebrew stores were all in San Diego County. So in order to fill this need he asked his cousin who owns a liquor store if he could use a small area to sell some supplies. His cousin readily agreed, and they started to sell brewing ingredients, accessories and homebrewing kits. After a while, Loza decided that there was sufficient demand to open a stand-alone

42

AUGUST 2017

homebrew store, and in May of 2015 he opened “La Casa del Lupulo” (The House of Hops) in the downtown area of Ensenada. “Homebrewing has been growing around here like crazy and Miguel has been a good catalyst for that,” Nathaniel Schmidt of Agua Mala tells me. While the exact number of Ensenada homebrewers is difficult to quantify precisely, it is most likely somewhere between 50 and 75 people, according to my definitely non-scientific poll. The local homebrewing club, the Cerveceros Caseros de Ensenada (“CCE”) is very active, and there is a fair amount of dialogue and cross-pollination between the brewers of the CCE, the Tijuana Homebrew Club and the Mexicali Homebrew Club. When I visited the Rancho Loza Hop Farm last year, Loza was busy hosting the Tijuana Homebrew club and giving a tour and talk. This homebrewer education is also provided at “La Casa del Lupulo” where locals can sign up for free classes. Loza is also planning on putting in a tasting bar at the store to further educate and refresh the locals. If “La Casa del Lupulo” has even a smidgen of similar influence on Ensenada homebrewers as the Home Brew Mart has had on San Diego, then expect some very good beers to be coming out of Ensenada for a very long time to come. •

n the competitive marketplace of time and attention, breweries are finding new ways to engage with their fans and it’s through their Instagram feeds. Gone are the days where businesses depend on street corner sign spinners and fan blown inflatables to draw customers to their door. As people depend more and more on their phones to eat, sleep, and breathe, breweries have found a way to tap into that screen millennials check over 150 times a day (literally). Tucked neatly between the stream of food porn and humble brag vacation photos is a widening river of craft beer content with news as fresh and engaging as a newly tapped IPA. Social media, in general, provides a number of useful features to breweries. Announcing new beers at the tasting room, weekend can sales, and marketing their brand with epic visuals and candid insights are some of the things they depend on.

Mat Robar of Pure says, “Instagram has done a great job finding ways to interact with your audience. From static images, to video and even short clips that disappear after a period of time or going live and broadcasting to your fans.“ Part of what makes Instagram so effective and efficient is its clean and uncluttered layout. “With Facebook not only do you have pictures like Instagram but you also have to compete with everyone posting events, sharing links, inviting you to groups, writing 'novels' complaining about their personal life, etc.” explains Derek Gallanosa of Abnormal. “Instagram is by far the most important social media tool in our marketing mix. It has the most followers and highest amount of customer engagement.” And it’s the engagement that makes the message stick. Robar believes “social media goes way beyond just typical engagement rates (likes, comments, views...etc) as you have the

opportunity to build a long term relationship with your followers.” Pure has utilized those relationships in creating contests for their supporters. The #pureinthewild competitions have fans posting pictures of their branded cans next to waterfalls, on snowy mountaintops, and in front of National Park landscapes. As enthusiastic fans post pictures of what they’re enjoying, the message multiplies as that image matriculates onto the screens of their friends and followers across the country. Those friends then engage the brewery and interest and exposure widens. Single-run can releases have had a watershed effect on the following of many local breweries because of this multiplicative factor. Mikkeller San Diego has been doing weekly can releases since the beginning of the year, and their number of followers has risen faster than any other brewery of similar size.

Producing products that excite beer nerds is one crucial aspect of drawing followers, but the types of photos, content, and consistency also makes a difference. Robar explains that they work with “great photographers/videographers who help capture the moments. From an execution side, we simply try to remain consistent with our posting schedule.” Gallanosa gives his philosophy as, “make sure what you’re putting out there has meaning… some behind the scenes info that we can act on. My approach is to give people what they are looking for which are updates on upcoming beer releases and events but from a Brewer’s point of view.” It also helps that

both Robar and Gallanosa have backgrounds in business and marketing. Breweries aren’t the only ones feeding the current of San Diego craft beer on Instagram. @craftbeeray and @brewstills have garnered more followers (27.8k and 6.5k, respectively) than most breweries with their unflappable feeds of arresting and addictive craft beer visuals and videos. @craftbeeray consults on marketing and branding to clients within the industry and brewstills contributes artful high-quality photography to breweries. Standing out above the noise and grabbing the attention of the average consumer is more

challenging today than ever. As the number of breweries continues to expand so too are the number of distractions from all around. Social media content is not only up to the minute and immediately actionable, but through meticulous design is begging to be consumed. From a scientific perspective, social media provides a variable feedback, like pulling the handle on a slot machine, each time a user clicks the front door of an app an unknown treat awaits. Sometimes it’s an insufferable selfie of that guy you went to high school with and other times it’s an impromptu sale you’ll drop everything to get. •
