Mitch Steele at Stone Brewing Co.

MITCH STEELE MOVING ON BY B R A NDON HERNÁNDEZ

Mitch Steele, Stone Brewing’s brewmaster of 10 years, left his post at the end of June to pursue a new opportunity. The specifics of that new venture have yet to be officially dispersed, but despite a lack of details, this is news that was widely reported in the beer world, and rightfully so. Steele is one of the brewing industry’s blue-chip members. Not only has he overseen brewing operations at one of the country’s fastestgrowing brewing companies — even during high-profile expansions to the East Coast and Europe — he literally wrote the book on India pale ales: IPA: Brewing Techniques, Recipes and the Evolution of India Pale Ale. His loss will be palpable for Stone, but not just because of his brewing prowess and professional skills, which led to numerous industry awards. Having worked with Steele for three years, I can tell you that he brought another “X factor” to Stone. In addition to being a consummate professional, he is also a good person with a big heart who not only loves beer and the art of brewing, but tirelessly supports the sharing of information for the purpose of educating and inspiring others about beer, brewing and his craftsperson industry. Though Stone has often been described as brash, polarizing or downright bastardly, such characterization has never been applied to Steele. He is one of the most respected and positively received publicfacing employees the company has ever had, and it will no doubt be very sad for his colleagues to see him go, but in speaking with a number of them in preparation for this article, their happiness for him is both real and unanimous. Count me among those sending best wishes for his next venture, for which he was sought out by industry professionals recognizing the talent and intangibles he brings to the brew-deck. Steele entered the brewing industry in 1988, four years after graduating from UC Davis with a degree in Fermentation Science. His first job was manning a 14-barrel system at the San Andreas Brewing Company. In 1992, he started work at Anheuser-Busch, managing brewhouse and fermenting operations in three different breweries while developing new beers as part of the company’s Specialty Brewing Group. An employee of Big Beer seemed an unlikely candidate for induction at Stone, which has railed against macro-entities since its 1996 founding, but Steele won over owners Greg Koch and Steve Wagner and proceeded to take San Diego County’s largest brewery from annual production of 48,000 barrels to more than 325,000 in 2015. The announcement of Steele’s departure was combined with a video produced by Stone. In it, Steele shares stories from the past decade, praises key members of his brewing staff and struggles with emotions throughout. Such emotion is understandable. It’s the end of an era, both for Steele and for Stone. Rather than fill the brewmaster position, Stone will employ an “innovation team” headed by chief operating officer Pat Tiernan and key individuals from the company’s brewing team. That group will develop new beers with concepts and recipes approved by Koch and Wagner. •

I N T E R N AT I O N A L C O L L A B O R AT I O N Lost Abbey Teams Up With Brasserie Dupont on “Deux Amis”

I N L AT E J U N E , fourth-

generation brewer Olivier Dedeycker (top photo, right) of Brasserie Dupont made his first-ever visit to the United States to release “Deux Amis”, or “Two Friends” — a collaboration beer with Tomme Arthur (glasses) from San Marcos’ The Lost Abbey. Brasserie Dupont’s signature peppery yeast was combined with American Amarillo and Simcoe hops to create this Old World Saison. The beer was brewed using Dupont’s 172-year-old brewing equipment. Dedeycker visited New York, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Diego during the release trip. “I wanted to work with Tomme,” explains Dedeycker, “because I felt we had a similar love for Saisons, and with his American hops expertise, we could really create something incredible.” For his part, Arthur venerated the brewery’s flagship Saison Dupont Vieille Provision as “one of those beers” with a “striking” yeast character. Deux Amis Saison is available in kegs and 750 mL bottles in limited quantities. •

Meanwhile, in Belgium... Belgian brewery De Halve Maan has begun construction on a unique, underground polyethylene pipeline that will channel beer from the brewery itself to the bottling plant — two miles away. Brewer Xavier Vanneste and his family raised about 10 percent of the $4.5 million project through crowdfunding, with one local restaurant owner giving $11,000 of his own money to fund construction.

I'd definitely drink the McNair's Session Ale again. Rich malt profile, nice chocolate notes and super crushable. High in flavor, low in ABV! With that being said, they were all drinkable and I can't wait to spend more time in the space. - Abby Heilborn (Ska Brewing) .........................................................................

I had the Panoramic Pale Ale. I would drink it again because it had great hop flavor and balance in the overall beer was spot on.

McNair's Session Ale was a standout for me. This beer was very refreshing — it was hot inside even though the AC was on — balanced and extremely easy drinking. I was very impressed with the level of flavor for a 3% beer and was pleasantly surprised on the fresh approach to a sessionable beer. - Brian Beagle (SD Beer Talk) .........................................................................

I loved McNair's Session Ale. Only Kelsey could make such a light gravity beer taste so flavorful. I'm ready for my next pint! - Tim Stahl (Stahl PhotoGraphics)

Panoramic is tasty North Park goodness. Body of a beauty! - Rudy Pollorena Jr. (Craft Beerd) ..................................................................

McNair's Session 70/- was a great example of drinkability and flavor in the growing trend of lighter ABV, sessionable beers. The fact that it's 3% is amazing, considering the depth of flavor and body. - Matthew Cammack (Hamilton’s Tavern & South Park Brewing)

The Beaufort Black Stout was a fantastic beer from a great brewer. Its malt character was so well-defined. The roast and chocolate notes were not muddled. The bitterness was firm but not astringent. Kelsey’s beers show a true grasp of process and recipe formulation. These are the kinds of beers that separate the homebrewer from the brewer/artist.

I bought a growler of Panoramic American Strong. Got home and tried it and would definitely have some more. I knew I liked Hop-Fu, but this was also delicious. - Omar Passons (Civic Activist and Craft Enthusiast) .........................................................................

First Four Beers On Tap: MCNAIR'S SESSION ALE Scottish 70/Malts: Golden Promise, Honey Malt, Pale Chocolate, Munich, Crystal Hops: East Kent Goldings 3% ABV

R AY S T R E E T R E D West Coast style Red Malts: 2-row, Crystal, Pale Chocolate Malt Hops: Amarillo, Centennial, Chinook 6.0% ABV

I only had time to try the Panoramic Pale Ale and the Beaufort Black Stout. Both were great, but if I had to pick one to have again it would be the stout. That beer is super clean and balanced. Not too much roast or chocolate. It has great mouthfeel and you can't detect any heat from the heavier side of a 7.9% beer. - David Crane (Doggy Beer Bones) ......................................

The Panoramic Pale Ale is bomb... super drinkable and not aggressive; crushable. - Nate Soroko (Toronado / Modern Times)

American style Strong Pale Ale Malts: 2-row, Honey Malt Hops: Mosaic, Simcoe, Cascade, Centennial 6.6% ABV

I definitely would drink the Pale Ale again. It drinks like an IPA but not too high in alcohol. I'm hoping they call it a San Diego Pale, it definitely rivals .394 from AleSmith and Magical and Delicious from Fall. - Peter Robertson (Blind Lady Ale House) .........................................................................

I had the Scottish Ale. I don't generally drink the style but Kelsey has made the cleanest, most drinkably delightful Scottish I've had to date. The low ABV is good too for those driving. - Doug Hasker (Gordon Biersch) .........................................................................

The McNair's Session Ale was amazing! Full bodied with great flavor, and only 3% which is really impressive. I would drink it again because it was delicious. Simple as that! - George Mora (URGE Gastropub) .........................................................................

The Panoramic Strong Pale. I enjoyed it and am looking forward to seeing the progression of Kelsey’s beers. - Bill Batten (Mikkeller San Diego) .........................................................................

I tried all the beers and very much enjoyed them. The Ray Street Red was my favorite! Well balanced, easy to drink, not overly hopped, as is

All of the beers were great. Panoramic Pale was excellent and the Beaufort Black is a classic example of the American Stout style. - Chuck West (QUAFF)

BEER IN THE HEADLIGHTS

AMPLIFIED ALE WORKS & MIDNIGHT JACK BY IAN CHEES M A N

People don’t understand

the stress

I’m under. My life as a beer writer is not as glamorous as it may seem. Not a day goes by where I am not beset by the most grievous First World Problems thrust upon mankind. Take today for example. Despite running my sous vide at 62.8 degrees Centigrade, my soft boiled eggs somehow possessed regrettably firm, grainy yolks. The centerpiece of my brunch was ruined and I had no other farm fresh eggs to correct it with. I live in an ineligible area for Amazon Fresh delivery, so clearly no more eggs were forthcoming. Needless to say, a lesser man would have buckled under this tremendous strain, but I persisted. If my hollandaise sauce didn’t break, I sure as shit wasn’t going to either. I heroically began to drizzle my organic asparagus spears with shallot-infused extra virgin olive oil, readying them to roast as an alternative, when I was struck by a sudden realization: After enduring all this I still had two different breweries to visit that day AND I hadn’t charged the batteries on my newest DSLR camera. Worse, those breweries were in opposing directions on the 15 freeway. The weight of the world was already upon me, and yet my trials had barely begun. But, damnit, I’m professionally obligated to drink beer and I’m not going to let this city down.

caring about how much space the carriers take up is actually quite Rock and Roll itself, subtly extending the theme. Very subversive! Thankfully all of my nitpicking was quickly forgotten as I journeyed into Amplified Ale Works’ brews. Not only were they offering a substantial array of styles, most of their offerings were quite solid. Some of them even threatened to convert me on styles I don’t typically embrace, which is about as high a praise as I can offer. The most surprising of the bunch was the Smokin Kiwi, a lightly smoked hoppy red ale. That seems like a melange of flavors more prone to failure than success, but somehow they married them all into something quite nuanced. I also rather enjoyed the Electrocution IPA, which favored crisp fruit notes of pears, tropical fruit and even a pinch of fuji apple. My favorite was probably Rare Form, a cloudy mahogany Belgian Quad with prominent brown sugar aromas, sticky body, and loads of streusel and molasses flavors within. I was less a fan of their dry Irish stout, Irish Lullabies, which I thought had an unusual mesquite character to the nose and slightly metallic finish. Whereas Amplified Ale Works crams a ton of tasting room into their space, the newly founded Midnight Jack Brewery (3801 Oceanic Dr, Oceanside, CA 92056) embodies the exact opposite. It is a large, airy warehouse with an expansive central bar and scattered picnic table seating just adjacent. It seems like the kind of space with the potential to turn into a sauna, but the warm weather accompanying my visit was capably mitigated by the overhead fans and cross-breeze. If anything, it made for an idyllic beerswilling climate. Midnight Jack has been serving and pilot-batching beers since their soft open on March 25th, but their grand opening kicks off on the weekend of July 2nd. It will be a ticketed event with live music and food vendors entitled “Jackfest”, which I refuse to comment on despite the riotous urging of my sniggering inner child. Like Amplified Ale Works, Midnight Jack offered considerable variety on their tap offerings, even having three different options on nitro. I rather enjoyed the Midnight Jack Pale Ale, which embraced the maltier aspects of the style (versus the many who tend to treat pale ales as more of a session IPA). It was floral, medium bodied, and totally crushable, though I wouldn’t have minded a little more hop persistence. The Barnstormer Brown similarly favored the maltier edge of the style, summoning bread and cocoa to dominate the aroma and flavor. It got a considerable boost from the fullness of the nitro format, which I would recommend over the regular presentation. This malt-forward approach worked moderately well on other beers like their Belgian Blonde, but felt like a misstep on their Sassy Saison and Klandestine Kolsch. The latter in particular, with its unfiltered body and punchy lemonade notes, really lacked the desirable thirst-quenching quality of the style. Even the Running Board Milk Stout, a style with ample latitude for sweetness, had a Lik-m-Stick and overripe berry tonality I couldn’t get into. As you can see, despite the incalculable odds against me, I emerged victorious in my quest. I can only hope the retelling of this epic saga will inspire you. •


SD-based beer-finding app TapHunter shared with WC this snapshot data of its 30 most searched-for beers over a two-week period in May. Russian River’s Pliny the Elder topped the list (again), while folks are still looking for Pliny the Younger, which is brewed just once a year and tapped out in February or early March. Latitude 33’s Blood Orange IPA jumped from the 15 spot to second place this month.

THE DOCTOR’S OFFICE

CHUCKALEK

BIERGARTEN MEETS ART GALLERY AND EATERY

“S

pecializing in Old School Beers for New School Palates, ChuckAlek focuses on German-style Lagers, original-era

Porter & Stout, and funky Sours while working with local culinary artisans, hop-growers, and other brewers to create exciting collaborations with historic elements.” This overview of ChuckAlek is found on the ArtProduce.org website, an online portal operated by the landlords of husband and wife duo Grant Fraley and Marta Jankowska at their satellite tasting room in North Park. The brewery is named after their grandfathers, Chuck and Alek, a mural of whom you can see in the small taproom. This mural, by local artist Janelle Despot, is the embodiment of the space it occupies, as it is family-oriented, and as the hallway in which it hangs leads you to the Art Produce gallery, where Janelle has contributed to many exhibits and community events in a space that is now conjoined to a new North Park staple: Tostadas. The space used by Art Produce and Tostadas - and now ChuckAlek - is quite unique in our region and something culturally and economically significant. This building used to be the location of North Park Produce, a grocery store from a bygone era, one which houses a North Park unrecognizable if placed side by side with the bustling craft beer, gastronomical art district that exists today. When new owners took over the space, it was named Art Produce as an homage to the grocery store. The ChuckAlek Biergarten is situated upon the old parking lot, and the interior space, where all the beers are poured, is the old walk-in cooler; this is a happy coincidence but one that fits the spirit of this living experiment. This use of existing space is key to how the ChuckAlek Biergarten fits within the environment. Rain water collection, for example, starts on the roof which trickles down to the graded ground where there is

INTO THE BREW

Reflecting on Europe B Y S A M TIER NEY

When

I was twenty years old I spent

a semester abroad studying politics and history at Lund University in Sweden. One of the classes that I took was on the European Union. The recent referendum result in the United Kingdom to leave the European Union got me thinking back to that class and that time in my life. I was buying beer for myself for the first time in my life (the legal age in Sweden is twenty for liquor stores and eighteen in bars and restaurants) and took to the internet to find more info on all of the strange and interesting looking beers at the store. I ended up opening a door to a new world. Drinking my way through European beer was its own small exploration of European culture. There were the lagers of Germany and the Czech Republic, the spicy and fruity ales of Belgium, hoppy pale ales and dark porters of England, and headache-inducing malt liquors of Russia. I ended up making several trips around the continent during that semester, and on each trip, finding local beers became a fun way to explore the culture of each country. A trip to Oktoberfest was my first glimpse into the prominent place that beer holds in Bavarian history and daily life. A tour around the brewpubs of Prague showed me the darker side of Czech lager that you hardly get a chance to see outside of the small Central European country. A clean, crisp mug of Rugenbräu Spezial Hell at a cozy restaurant on a

Our Family Tart Berliner Weisse gets dressed up with a variety of fruity additions — prickly pear, ginger and guava, to name a few. It’s part of her allure. Light, crisp and effervescent, some would say ‘tart,’ but certainly not bitter. The traditional German beer style is incredibly refreshing and ripe for summertime sipping. Just don’t be heartbroken if she’s flirting with another flavor next time you visit the tasting room.

The event was part of Shanghai Beer Week, which ran from May 20 - 29. California breweries included Karl Strauss, Mother Earth, Belching Beaver, Firestone Walker and Ballast Point. Dan LeBlanc, founder of San Diego-based exporters Craft Cask & Cork, poured in the Karl Strauss booth. His business has been bringing US brands to China since 2012. “Overall, this was a great event with an increasing number of native Chinese attending,” he said, adding that “brewery representation was much higher than last year” with several sales team members promoting brands like Flying Dog and Goose Island.
