K AR L STR AU SS T URNS 30 YEARS YOUNG : February 2, 2019 marks 30 years in business for Karl Strauss Brewing Company. By the time you read this, the party at HQ will likely have already taken place, but you can still celebrate with a special anniversary beer and food pairing available at all the brewery restaurant locations. Throughout February, the 30th Anniversary Ale, a Russian Imperial Stout aged in rye whiskey barrels for twelve months, will be served with slow-cooked, beer-braised boneless beef short ribs, a cheesy bacon-poblano potato cake, grilled asparagus, drunken raisins and cranberries, peppery greens, and beer demi-glace.

Virgilio and his crew, six-year Port Brewing / The Lost Abbey vet Tommy Kreamer, and former Benchmark Brewing alum Mike Williams, are eager to receive feedback on their house beers, which were produced on a 15-barrel system. There will be 17 house beers, spanning a wide range of styles that’s expectedly heavy on IPAs (there will be four: West Coast, Northeast, and a pair of doubles). Those ales and lagers pour forth from a 25-tap bar that’s the focal point of an outdoor patio featuring an eclectic mix of seating options ranging from stools and high tables to picnic benches and Acapulco chairs. In addition to on-site consumption, beer is available to-go in both growers and crowlers. K I LOWAT T B R E W I N G E XPA N DI N G TO OC E A N S I DE : After spending months scoping spots in the South Bay, Kilowatt Brewing co-founders Steve Kozyk and Rachel Fischer eventually landed a location for their next satellite tasting room in the county’s northwesternmost municipality, at 406 Mission Avenue in Oceanside. The 2,500 square-foot space used to house a Subway sandwich shop, which means they are inheriting a kitchen, as well. An onsite food option wasn’t on Kozyk’s and Fischer’s list of desired amenities, but they are happy to be able to offer eventual patrons a short-list of sandwiches, wraps, salads and a decadent beer-braised bacon-studded macaroni and cheese. Their pseudo-restaurant status would also allow them to offer guest beers on the 24 total taps. The tasting room will be enhanced by Kilowatt’s trademarks: colorful art, giant murals, king-sized bar games, and elaborate lighting installations. For the latter, Kozyk (a lighting professional by trade), says he has some “crazy, next-level stuff ” planned.

DO U BLE PEAK: SAN MARCOS’ NEWEST BREW ERY: Co-founder Frank Harton’s “brewing adventure” was inspired by a friend’s homebrew, enjoyed at the summit of Double Peak trail (which is visible from the tasting room at 1801 Diamond Street, Suite 101). Brewing operations are headed by Devin Patterson-Hall, who comes to the business with experience garnered at Karl Strauss Brewing and Port Brewing / The Lost Abbey. He is assisted by Harton’s daughter and Siebel Institute of Technology graduate Allison Longdon, and her husband, Ziggy Longdon. That duo was solely responsible for Double Peak’s version of Resilience IPA benefiting the Sierra Nevada Camp Fire Relief Fund. The rest of the brewery’s initial menu consisted of an amber ale, brown ale, red ale, West Coast IPA and Northeast-style IPA. A porter and stout are on the horizon.

E P P I G B R E W I N G P LA N N I N G V I STA P R ODUC T I ON FAC I LI T Y: After touring dozens of sites, Eppig has signed a lease to expand to 1347 Keystone Way, Suite C, just off Palomar Airport Road. The company’s future home is brand-new construction that will come in at nearly 16,000 square feet — plenty of room for the three-vessel, 30-barrel Deutsche steam brewhouse recently acquired, a 1,500 square-foot tasting room with a mezzanine, and a 1,000 square-foot patio.

In addition to its five-barrel brewhouse, Double Peak is equipped with a pilot system to develop small-batch and experimental beers. The team has also dedicated room to build a barrel-aging program later in the year. Over a month into its existence, Double Peak has so far been open solely on weekends, but Harton and company expect to post expanded, regular tasting room hours soon, with a grand opening date also TBD.

That brew system will allow Eppig to initially triple its production to 3,500 barrels annually, with high ceilings and room to grow its cellar capacity. For now, the team will continue to brew in North Park to supply that tasting room and their waterfront biergarten in Point Loma. Eppig has also been supplementing the beers produced at its Brewery Igniter space with contract-brewed products.

GRAV I TY HEI G HTS DEB UTS IN SORRENTO MES A: The newest addition to Sorrento Mesa was hammered into reality by local restaurant group Whisknladle Hospitality, with AleSmith’s original founder Skip Virgilio leading brewing operations. “The beauty of a brewpub is you can do plenty of one-batch brews,” said Virgilio, who says some of his beers are influenced by those he brewed back at AleSmith, but that all of Gravity Heights’ recipes are fromscratch. “Most of them were pilot brewed in my garage or winged here at the brewpub.”

“It’s exciting to find someplace that fits all of our needs, including having a phenomenal tasting room. Finding the exact mix wasn’t easy,” said co-owner Stephanie Eppig, who notes that the vacancy rate for commercial industrial space in San Diego is less than five percent, and even lower once the needs of a brewery production facility are factored in. “In particular, our Special Lager has been a big, runaway hit, and an unexpected one at that. Now we can hopefully brew enough to meet demand.”

K AI ROA BRI N G S NEW Z EALAND FLARE TO U NI V ER S I TY HEIG HTS: San Diego’s newest brewpub opened to the public on Tuesday, January 28 at 4601 Park Boulevard. House beers are the product of ex-Bitter Brothers Brewing and Lightning Brewery brewer Joe Peach, whose opening menu featured a Belgian blond ale called Cheeky Buggah, a hoppy wheat dubbed Wizard of the South, Ostrich oatmeal stout and two unfiltered IPAs, Southern Sky and 4 Gables. The aforementioned Northern Germanstyle pilsner is en route and hopped with New Zealand varietals Motueka and Wakatu — sourced from a New Zealand farm run by the cousin of brewery co-founder Shanan Spearing — to impart lemonlime flavors. Also on-deck: a San Diego pale ale, dunkelweizen, brown ale, and imperial stout. Don’t expect these beers to make many future appearances, though. “We won’t be making any core beers and there will always be something new,” said Peach. “We have four two-barrel tanks for our one-barrel pilot system, so we can make really experimental beers and do collaboration brews.”

The food menu is inspired by the company’s New Zealand roots: sausage rolls, green-lipped mussels steamed in the house pilsner, numerous dishes incorporating lamb (including tender chunks prepared barbacoastyle and lumped atop “chips” with queso fresco and mint chimichurri), and several savory pies, a vegetable version of which will change per the freshness and availability of seasonal ingredients. Also available are “butties,” which are buttered, slider-style sandwiches, paired with a house beer for $8.

It’s the passion project of brewing industry newbies, but that’s not to say they haven’t prepped for entrance into the local suds scene. The entire founding trio— Bob and Dylan Frank and Robert Bessone—graduated from San Diego State University’s Business of Craft Beer certificate program. And they also have the rare experience of working with municipal government to allow for operation of breweries within the limits of a city that previously forbid beer production. 13 Point also possesses something else not every San Diego County brewery does—music. In fact, live performances are a big part of what the business (the name and logo of which were inspired by a Grateful Dead graphic) is all about. Ownership expects to host at least one or two nighttime band gigs per week. The house beer is brewed on a seven-barrel system and currently includes three offerings: LG Basic Blonde Ale, Blue Lake Brown Ale, and My Trusty Llama American pale ale. The trio of beers on-deck to join these first drafts: Ol’ Nessie vanilla porter, a red ale aptly dubbed The Red, and a Northeast-style IPA called The LD Super Nova. LD stands for Lazy Daze, a reference to a Galaxy-hopped hazy IPA that serves as the foundation for a series of Nor’easters.

undergoing treatments at UC Davis Medical Center and Rady’s Children’s Hospital ever since. On January 25, the brewery released Beet Cancer with the goal of raising $50,000 for pediatric cancer research via TheTruth365 and The Pablove Foundation. “Of the federal funds that go to cancer research, only four percent goes to pediatric cancer research,” Mike Hess told Eric Kahnert in a CBS 8 News segment. “In the last 35 years, only three new drugs have come to market for kids with cancer.” The brew is a Belgian wit made with purple potatoes in the mash and beets in the hop back. At time of press, Beet Cancer was still on tap at all three county MHB locations: North Park’s flagship brewery (3812 Grim

DE F T & B E N C HM A R K C LO S E , T HE N R EOP E N : As of late January, both Benchmark Brewing and Deft Brewing are open again. Benchmark was forced to shut their doors on January 23 “due to a suspension of our ABC license, that was triggered by the state tax board,” the brewery announced on Facebook. Then, on January 25, the company posted that both their brewing headquarters and Bay Park tasting room were back open. Check their social media pages for updated hours. Deft Brewing is back online after “a geyser appeared out of the blue coming from a fire sprinkler system water line under our building,” said co-founder Mo Nuspl in an e-mail newsletter. “It looked like a total disaster when the water receded later in the afternoon, leaving inches of water, mud and muck everywhere.” Despite the unexpected setback, including a lost batch of beer, the Bay Park brewery is now pouring new beers such as a Munich dunkel, a Belgian dubbel, a coffee porter, an apple wheat, an experimental “hazy-ish” IPA, and a new black/brown IPA. •

COVER STORY / BEER IN THE HEADLIGHTS

COUNCIL IS ADJOURNED: THE RISE AND FALL OF A BELOVED KEARNY MESA BREWERY BY IAN CHEESMAN

IT

is a curious thing walking into Council Brewing Co. in 2019. Despite shuttering a month ago, very little has changed. There’s still beer in the barrels and a neat row of barstools ready to be filled. It feels like all it would take is illuminating the “OPEN” sign to draw passerby in for a pint of Bully Pulpit IPA and the world would spin on for this brewery. Of course, things are more complicated than that. December 15th, 2018 officially marked the cessation of Council Brewing Co. It seemed to come out of nowhere, but per the Facebook post announcing the same, it was a decision that had weighed on co-owners Liz and Curtis Chism for quite some time. I don’t think it’s hyperbole to say the statement sent a considerable tremor through the local beer scene. Most reacted with an outpouring of support and by sharing fond memories with the brand, but I found myself more vexed than anything. What undid this Kearny Mesa brewing institution? Perhaps the armchair CPAs of the world were correct in quipping that the business had expanded too fast, but the dearth of nuance in such statements gnawed at me. I wagered the arc of Council Brewing Co. had something more to teach, or at least a more personal story to tell. If nothing else, I wanted to properly memorialize the efforts that had enriched San Diego's beerosphere for half a decade. As is the story for the opening of so many San Diego breweries, the Council Brewing Co. endeavor began with a passion for homebrewing and the spark of entrepreneurship. Their burgeoning talent found recognition in awards through local club QUAFF, the San Diego County Fair’s homebrew

competition, and the National Homebrew Competition, which is to say nothing of the appreciation dispensed by those called upon to drink down the Chism’s supply. All it took was a friend approaching Curtis with the idea to partner up on starting a brewery back in 2012 for the dream to finally take shape. Those keen on arithmetic will note the two-year gap between this event and the opening of Council Brewing Co. in mid2014. This expanse was marked by exploring various possible locales (with a couple of false starts), dissolution of the original partnership, selling their home to provide additional funds for build out, and the onboarding of a new investor/partner. Despite the chaotic road to Kearny Mesa, they were operating loan-free and ready to serve a surprisingly eager public with their three-barrel brewhouse. “We opened up and, to our shock, people showed up and packed out the place,” said Curtis. While early sales were meeting expectations, the waters were far from calm for the Chisms. In their first month they were already addressing flaws in their brewing process, as well as tending to the complexities of a mixed fermentation sour program. All of that would have been chaotic enough without their new partner opting to “quit unexpectedly,” leading to a buyout and the cessation of the second financial relationship for the brewery. Though the Chisms could not have known it at the time, the happenings of those first six weeks would prove to define the trajectory of their business. The most immediate was the arrival of the tart saisons that would later be known as the Beatitude series. It proved all

too apt a name, as it blessed the business with a surge of recognition and an unexpectedly rabid fanbase. “We wouldn’t even announce [releases] on social media...within two hours, boom, 60 cases would go,” said Curtis. After establishing the “magic slurry” feeding Beatitude produced consistent, flavorful (and coveted) beer, the Chisms decided to scale up production and extend its reach out of the tasting room. One micro-loan later, the Magic Factory facility was born. It proved so successful that by January of 2016 they were already refinancing that loan to upgrade their brewing setup, vastly augment cellar needs, and acquire bottling equipment to help boost the reach of the program. On the whole, life was good for Council Brewing Co. in 2016. The business was in the black as it had been in the previous year, even on the back of loan payments and the Chisms striving to pay themselves a salary. Beatitude had proven a successful way to enter new markets as their distribution grew. However, midway through that year, there was a notable downturn in its sales throughout Southern California. This could have had multiple causes, but they saw a surge in popularity of kettle sours as a likely culprit. Beatitude, a mixed fermentation brew, had trouble competing in a marketplace where there wasn’t sufficient consumer understanding of how much more time- and labor-intensive it was to produce than its new stylistic rival. It made Beatitude's price point feel inflated, especially among those that actually mistook it for kettle soured. While this was an undeniable setback, it was by no means a crisis. Their tasting room

sales had grown 10% year over year since opening, which represented the majority of their revenue and somewhat buffered them from distribution fluctuations. Eventually they found eager national and even international markets to make use of the supply they had already generated. But as the sour category continued to slow into 2017, the Chisms knew their business had to further evolve. Council Brewing Co.'s new strategy for 2018 was to try their hand at the bustling market for large batch IPAs, a seemingly timely decision relative to the ongoing hype surrounding hazy IPAs. This shift in approach required brewing capacity beyond their existing setup, which they addressed by contracting brews through another local brewery. This initially proved a prudent approach, with cans of their In The Blind hazy IPA selling quickly at the tasting room and receiving ravenous demand from their distribution network. It would have been an unequivocal success, were it not for one small wrinkle. “Once the IPAs hit, [distributors] pretty much stopped ordering the sours,” lamented Curtis. This was something of a double whammy; it was one thing to have half of the business potentially ebb and flow, but quite another to upend that pipeline with a product whose margins — particularly after the added overhead cost of contract brewing — were far leaner. Still, they appeared to have another hit on their hands, so business proceeded with an increased urgency around bolstering their presence in the local market. It must have seemed a bit of serendipity when the Finest Made Ales facility in Santee came up for sale, because the Chisms had already been exploring East County for possible satellite tasting room sites. Further, this was essentially a turnkey brewing operation, removing the contract brewing variable from the equation (and at a price that barely edged past their established tasting room budget). Taking possession of the facility in March of 2018 allowed them to address the backlog of orders for their clean beers and fortify their direct sales. Unfortunately, this victory would prove to be offset by an uncanny volume of setbacks. Beginning in May, one distributor after another wreaked havoc on both their financials and their production. Some suddenly slashed their standing orders in half. Others indicated they would pass on a shipment, but fully intended to reorder the following Curtis and Liz Chism of Council Brewing with "first dollar" customer Ben Hodge in 2014. Photo by Tim Stahl

month. In many cases, those assurances were as empty as the previous month’s order. This was particularly troublesome, since logistics demanded cans be ordered and beers get brewed well in advance of these orders to fulfill them. While some of that packaged beer could be offloaded through local sales, much of it was effectively drain-bound due to an IPA’s narrow lifespan for quality. Complications beyond those of capricious distributors compounded the Chism’s headaches. The opening of the Santee tasting room was followed by a dramatic downturn in traffic to their Kearny Mesa location. They had anticipated some cannibalization of their business as existing patrons opted to visit the new location, but they encountered nearly double the percentage hit that their industry peers had projected. Clearly, something more was afoot, because even signature events such as Talk Like A Pirate Day were down 40% from the previous year. To add insult to injury, a healthy sales channel through China ultimately dropped to zero when the country announced a 25% tariff on American beer in retaliation for U.S. tariffs. Even if they could ignore how “demoralizing” it all was, the cumulative

financial impact of losing tens of thousands of dollars month over month was catastrophic. “It happened so fast that we just couldn’t recover from it,” said Curtis. The looming close of the year brought everything into sharp focus. Courtesy of New Year's Resolutions, they knew they could bank on the usual slump in January sales. They couldn't reasonably assume February would be much better either, given the recent track record of diminishing returns on their marketing efforts. While many would look to an investor to stay afloat in similar circumstances, that option no longer interested them, especially at a juncture where the devalued business would likely not produce the most equitable terms. Add to that the realization that in five years of business they had paid themselves less than 50% of the time, and in some months, that pay wasn’t even sufficient to cover rent on their home. But the real line in the sand was their firm commitment to paying their employees. Once that was in jeopardy, the decision essentially made itself. There’s an understandable compulsion to review the myriad decisions that led Council Brewing Co. to its terminus with the

wisdom of hindsight, but that sort of analysis lacks the context of the moments that forged them. For example, it’s trivial to observe that a more conservative expansion of the Magic Factory would have decreased their reliance on the distribution channels that ultimately injured the business. However, it was the success of that endeavor that allowed Council Brewing Co. to do things like hire brewing staff. That only sounds like an indulgence until you discover it still wasn't help enough to prevent Liz from needing to return to work the same day she gave birth to their daughter. All that can really be said is they saw opportunities to do more than keep the business afloat and pursued them to mixed outcomes. Whether their brand lost its cachet in a world rife with newer, shinier options, or the ever-ominous market saturation came a-calling, the Chisms prefer to focus on what they managed to accomplish. “We tried to build a place that’s like a town council where people come together, deliberate, debate, have conversations, [and] forge new friendships,” said Curtis. “Curtis and I did our jobs,” added Liz. •

PROHIBITCHIN’

Profile: Anyaa Carter, South Park Brewing Company By Beth Demmon | Photos by Kristina Yamamoto

WALK

into South Park Brewing Company on any given day and it’s likely to be full of couples sharing a flight and some tacos, families playing board games, and a handful of ubiquitous beer nerds gearing up to head to Hamilton’s Tavern next door. The pintsized pub’s five-barrel brewing system is only separated from the dining area by a low wall, so it’s hard to miss any activity by the brew team of owner Scot Blair, head brewer Ryan Sullivan, and assistant brewer Anyaa Carter. Carter’s journey into the industry started in 2016 when she joined the South Park team as a beertender after leaving her previous job in security. However, she admits that the requisite customer service aspect wasn’t her biggest strength, nor was it where she wanted to end up. “Women behind the bar aren’t as valued as they should be,” Carter says. “I just knew this wasn’t my ceiling.” So when former brewer Ryan Traylor left South Park for an opportunity at Karl Strauss, Carter stepped up and told Blair she’d like to move into the brewhouse. “I remember the moment very distinctly,” she reminisces. “I couldn’t believe that I was just like ‘I want to do it.’ It was kind of an out-of-body thing because I’m just not like that.”

It paid off; Sullivan and Carter have been brewing together ever since, keeping the 13 in-house taps pouring with a rotating selection of original brews. The collaborative nature of the job means each member works to their skill set. (“Blair is doing all the recipe writing, Ryan’s doing most of the actual, physical brewing side of it, and I’m doing more of what leads up to brew day.”) Carter sees the shared workload as a benefit, allowing them to roughly double their output in 2018 from the previous year by her estimate. When I ask her about her future plans, she’s not shy about her ambition. “I’m kind of playing with the idea of whether I want to own my own place, but I don’t necessarily think it would be in San Diego,” citing the amount of competition already established. But she admits: “I don’t want to just be a shift brewer. I don’t want to just be a lead brewer. I want to have something more than that.” Competition aside, Carter’s fully aware of the challenges she faces in the world of beer. “For me to really hit my mark in this industry, I’m going to have to push myself — especially as a black woman in this industry. I’m going to have to push myself a little harder than other people in beer.” It’s no secret that women are still outnumbered by men in the craft beer industry. But even as the numbers slowly rise, Carter


points to the lack of women in leadership positions as a bigger cause for concern. “What hurts the industry as a whole is that there’s not women further up beyond a certain point, [they’re] not in the room making decisions… there’s just not a natural progression like there is for a man right now.” Carter speaks honestly and directly, although she admits that can be risky in today’s climate. “Nowadays, everyone has an opinion about everything. I find myself having to be really careful about that because I am a woman and people may perceive what I say as something that reflects on South Park Brewing. I don’t feel like I can be honest with everyone about everything... I don’t want to seem combative because I’m a woman. As hard as I have to work for my respect, I have to pick and choose what I put out there.” She echoes a common criticism of the beer industry today: that no one’s talking about what’s wrong, only what’s right, due to fear of alienation, offending someone, or severing a relationship over a difference of opinion in a market where relationships are everything. Throughout the course of the interview, Carter and I at times respectfully disagree with one another when it comes to heavy topics in the beer community. But it’s the respectful part that Carter wishes would make a comeback. And as much as it seems like a long-gone luxury to agree-to-disagree, she understands that no matter what, the spotlight’s on her. “I was even hesitant to do this interview because [I thought] ‘what do I have to say that’s important?’ But on the other side, I have to realize that I do have something to say that’s important. I do have the responsibility to at least put myself out there so that other women know that they can get somewhere in this industry… I know people are paying attention to what happens in my trajectory because I’m visible.” She sips her beer and muses aloud. “Do I have what it takes to be a mentor? Am I going to take the chances to open a brewery? Am I going to take the chances to put myself and my ideas out there?” I, for one, can’t wait to see how she answers those questions.

Craft Q&A: Kelsey McNair

West Coaster readers voted Kelsey McNair of North Park Beer Co. San Diego’s Best Brewer of 2018. When told the news, McNair revealed he didn’t vote for himself: “I voted for Travis Smith,” he said, referring to Societe’s brewmaster who won in 2014. “In all seriousness, I have way too much left to learn to have such an honor bested upon me.” We asked McNair to put his humility to the side and answer a few questions for us.

How would you sum up 2018?

Philosophically speaking, 2018 was a year of breaking out of my comfort zone and not being complacent. I spent a lot of time analyzing our processes and working with my team to figure out where we could make improvements. Sometimes this resulted in taking a couple of steps backward in order to take several steps forward. Ultimately, I believe that the efforts have resulted in some great strides in quality for our new beers and mainstays alike. We also brewed several collaborations, which meant a lot of brainstorming, sharing our methods for various processes with other brewers, learning how other brewers were doing various processes, and ultimately learning new things together. From my perspective, each collaboration brew should be a knowledge building opportunity for everyone involved. A successful collaboration can be so much more than just getting together and making a beer.

How does your location, on a prime North Park corner, impact what you choose to brew?

One of the things that I have had to accept is that I need to try and please as many people as possible with our beer portfolio. This means making beer that people want without compromising on my values as a brewer (most of the time… there was that charcoal glitter thing we made for Comic-Con, which is going to haunt me forever). We continued to brew a lot of traditional beer styles, but I did set aside the BJCP style guidelines at times and embraced more “free form” brewing which included making some fun culinary inspired beers, such as our popular Bakers Man Brand Stout series. I fully embraced the haze and dove deep into that style, which I believe has led to us making some truly exceptional versions. Our 2nd Anniversary Hazy Double IPA “Gimme a 2nd” garnered several reviews comparing it to that of a Monkish release, which was incredibly gratifying considering that Monkish is touted as one of the best brewers of the style. I remembered that I really enjoy the experimentation and tinkering side of brewing, which connects directly to my history as a homebrewer.

What’s in the works for this year?

We’ll continue down the path we have been paving: more collaborations, more tinkering, more learning and having fun with our beer. You’ll see more barrel aged beer releases in bottles and more releases for some of our non-barrel aged beers in cans. Some of our existing beers, such as Hop-Fu!, should level up in quality as we’ll start brewing with hops that I personally selected in Yakima, Washington. We plan to continue expanding within our existing space by adding some more fermentation capacity and growing our beer production team as needed. I think it is going to be an amazing year for North Park Beer Co. •

Cardoza with Burning Beard's Christina O'Grady and Shannon Lynnette

By Brandon Hernández

M

ichael Cardoza is a full-fledged bon vivant… and a bit of a Casanova. He knows the way to the hearts of members of San Diego’s brewing community is through their stomachs. A fan of local beer since the early ‘90s, he goes out of his way to keep local brewery staffers—from brewers to front-ofhouse—feeling equal parts full and appreciated courtesy of homemade, confection-stocked care packages. “Beer industry folks never have time to eat, so I like to give them something quick and easy they can have a bite of now and finish later,” says Cardoza, speaking of a small-but-mighty variety of cookies he’s become known for among San Diego brewers in recent years. Cardoza’s love of San Diego beer began when he was a college student working downtown. Strapped for cash, he was happy to stumble on Hang Ten Brewing, where there was cheap food and pitchers of beer far more exotic than standard kegger

fare. Pitchers of house brews gave way to bombers of Pete’s Wicked Ale and Arrogant Bastard Ale on ski excursions, followed by Costco-procured cases of Karl Strauss’ Red Trolley Ale. But it wasn’t until he and his wife Rebecca began venturing to the places from which their beer hailed that his “homegrown obsession” took its ultimate shape. “The first people I met in the brewing industry were at Green Flash’s original location in Vista,” he says. It was there he shared conversations with former brewmaster Chuck Silva and discovered beer industry people have a lot of passion and much to share. “I like to collect stories. It’s amazing the education and mastery the people making our beer have, and how willing they are to offer it up to people who are interested.” Cardoza recalls a trip he and his wife took to Napa 14 years ago. They went wine tasting, because “that’s what you do when you’re in Napa.”

They enjoyed it just fine, but the following year they returned to Northern California and went to breweries instead, and says they had way more fun. Why? “It’s the people. The beer is the body, mind and soul of the people who are making it. It’s a community.” Cardoza has become known throughout that community as a regular patron of numerous interests. His most frequented haunts include Burning Beard Brewing, Benchmark Brewing, North Park Beer Co., Amplified Ale Works and, most recently, Eppig Brewing. Cardoza says 99.9% of the reason he returns to all of them is the atmosphere and the people. And when the latter see him coming, it’s not odd for them to salivate a bit. Enter, the cookie man. One day, Cardoza heard a bartender-slashfriend at Toronado San Diego was having “the shittiest of shittiest days,” so he went home and baked a batch of chocolate chip cookies that he later delivered to her at the bar. She said that act of kindness turned her entire day and mood around. It was a watershed moment for Cardoza, who now makes impromptu cookie deliveries to his favorite watering holes on a regular basis. “Chocolate chip cookies are a little sweet for my taste, so I decided to add another ingredient and experimented with dried fruits. I started with raisins and cranberries before discovering sour cherries were the best,” he says. “I like to add alcohol to everything I do, so I started soaking the cherries in spirits. When I tried them with bourbon, it changed everything.” So, too, did a conversation with Burning Beard head brewer Jeff Wiederkehr, who suggested he incorporate oats. His rationale was that, much like with spices such as cinnamon and nutmeg, brewers incorporate oats into some of their beers, which would make for a good beer-and-cookie pairing; a real “brewer’s cookie.” The result is a toothier confection with similar flavor, increased spice, and more to offer from a texture perspective. And Cardoza’s no one-trick pony. He also won a chili cook-off at Burning Beard with a gamemeat version of a football-season chili recipe he and his dad have perfected over the years, winning the first publicly-sold sixtel from the El Cajon brewery in the process. In celebration of Cardoza’s West Coaster ink, cookie-and-beer tastings are planned at Burning Beard (February 15), Amplified Ale Works in Pacific Beach (February 21), and North Park Beer Co. (February 28). Can’t wait that long to try those cookies? No problem. Being the generous soul he is, Cardoza is sharing recipes for two varieties with readers. Consider it a Valentine for the San Diego beer community.
