nitro black sheep coffee porter Sometimes the Black Sheep of the family gets a bad rap and that can make one bitter, but our 5.2% ABV Black Sheep Coffee Porter Nitro shuns that stereotype. With his dark, warm personality enhanced by local coffee roasters at Arcidiacono, the bold java tastes are softened by the smooth, suave touch nitro imparts on every sip. Let the Black Sheep in. He may surprise you. Always on tap.

Pizza Port Plans

One of San Diego’s original breweries is celebrating 30 years of its Solana Beach location with a special brewers collaboration (Pipes Pale Ale on nitro), as well as a recreation of the original Swamis IPA recipe and a limited run of Solana IPA cans. The festivities are planned for March 25 and 26. The Pizza Port team is also busy with a limited run of Bacon and Eggs cans (March 4 at the pubs), a new core canned beer – Grandview Golden Ale – set for release in April, plus Ocean Beach’s 7th anniversary and Jetty IPA limited can release (May 20).

On the Tracks Closes

Amid a glut of new brewery openings, a beer interest of more than six years quietly shuttered recently. That business is Carlsbad’s On-The-Tracks Brewery. The family-run business had soldiered on within a business park that later welcomed two other breweries – Arcana Brewing Company (opened as Fezziwig’s Brewing Company in 2012) and Guadalupe Brewery (installed

inside Carlsbad Brew Supply in 2015). Ian Anderson of the San Diego Reader reported that one factor in the closure was a monthlong suspension as a result of several code violations with the ABC.

Drinkabout's 7th

When visiting the website for DrinkAbout – www.sddrinkabout.com – you’ll find a succinct definition/mission statement: “An informal bus ride taken by members of the communities of Normal Heights, North Park, South Park and beyond, for the purpose of drinking without driving, sampling the wares at multiple local establishments, and being seen by the public.” In February, DrinkAbout celebrated seven years of providing free monthly rides that loop around to eight craft beer bars: Blind Lady, Small Bar, Live Wire, Toronado, Station Tavern, Hamiltons Tavern, Ritual Kitchen and Tiger!Tiger!. Here are the dates for upcoming DrinkAbout fun, which fall on the third Wednesday of the month: 3/15, 4/19, 5/17, 6/21, 7/19, 8/16, 9/20, 10/18, 11/15 and 12/20.

A scene from Karl Strauss' 28th Anniversary Celebration, "Changing of the Barrels"

Prohibition Chugs Along

One of the county’s northernmost breweries has a somewhat new head brewer. Dominic Venditti, a UCSD brewing program graduate who’s worked at Rough Draft, Mission and Mother Earth, is now in his sixth month working at the brewpub. Production pace has increased to around 700 barrels per year, and an upcoming expansion into a new building could bump that figure to 1,000 this year, and eventually 2,500 when all equipment is acquired and working at full steam. The added space will also allow the company to begin bottling in a 22-ounce format. Customer favorites, according to Venditti, now include Hop Chronicles pale ale, Life’s a Peach wheat beer, and Dirty Danking double IPA.

SR76 Beer Works

Brewer Brian Scott (formerly of Firehouse, Mission, Karl Strauss, and SD Brewers Guild Presidency) doesn’t need to worry about selling beer to outside accounts; the brewery he operates is owned by the economic development arm of the Rincon Band of Luiseno Indians, who run Harrah’s Southern California Resort. For the beers on tap inside the brewery tasting room and the resort’s bars and restaurants, Scott’s aim is approachability, with SR76’s current four core beers including a German-style wheat beer, a light-bodied Kölsch, a pale ale with Mosaic hops and 70 IBUs, and a low-ABV saison. if the operation is successful, the SR76 team sees this as a model that can be duplicated at resorts throughout Southern California and beyond—citing Northern California, Arizona, Oklahoma and North Carolina as potential regions for on-property brewery infusion. If you’re looking for an extra reason to make the trip, Harrah’s Resort SoCal is hosting “Beer Fest at Dive” on Sunday, March 19. X

PINK BOOTS SOCIETY IN GERMANY By Melody Crisp

MARCH 2017


A

s we celebrate Women’s History Month, I want to share some of the incredible work the Pink Boots Society is doing to empower women in the brewing industry. For those of you not familiar with PBS, it was founded in 2007 by female brewer Teri Fahrendorf. Since then, PBS has expanded to chapters in all 50 states (and abroad) with more than 2,000 members, with the mission to “assist, inspire and encourage women beer industry professionals to advance their careers through education.”

PBS is a nonprofit “open to women who are actively employed or retired from a career in the beer industry, who are in the process of opening a brewery, or are students currently enrolled in a beer industry focused program.” This group has been an incredible resource for meeting other like-minded women, networking, and mentoring each other. Pink Boots’ cornerstone is education, empowering women through continued learning, with scholarships awarded to women employed in all facets of the industry. I was recently a scholarship recipient for a trip to Germany, where myself and 12 other women from the industry spent 10 days immersed in German beer culture. Our schedule was so packed that we went straight from the airport to our first brewery tasting. Highlights of the trip, besides a traditional German barefoot forest walk, included brewing with Sister Doris – the world’s oldest brewing nun – at Mallersdorf Abbey, meeting the Meinel Sisters of Meinel-Bräu in Hof, drinking legit West Coast-style IPAs at Crew Republic, and marching in the Spalt Kirchweih festival as

honored guests. All of us were inspired seeing how many breweries were run by women with impressive brewing knowledge. This trip also shattered my preconceived notions of the Reinheitsgebot. Coming from the U.S. where we love to break the rules, I always thought the 500-yearold German Purity Law seemed a little outdated. We asked the brewers, hop farmers, and maltsters what they thought of the law, and the resounding majority were in favor. They felt that the Reinheitsgebot differentiates them on the world market and still allows for a lot of unexplored creativity within the confines of the law. Interestingly, the Purity Law’s need for tradition does not exclude brewers from seeking out the latest technologies or new world brewing procedures, like dry-hopping. This idea of pushing the limits within strict parameters was a central theme on the trip. It manifested itself in a beer that epitomized the trip for me: a small-batch blonde weizenbock from Schneider Weisse, dry-hopped with Mandarina Bavaria for an intense pineapple and bitter orange peel aroma.

beer blew my mind! I had another revelation at the Trumpet Bar (owned by the Meinel Sisters). We were treated to a 13% doppelbock that was served tableside with a super-heated metal rod that instantly caramelized the sugars for a rich butterscotch-like flavor. It was unlike anything I’ve ever tasted, and what I imagine J.K. Rowling conjured when dreaming up butter beer. But even as I reflect on the trip, and all the amazing experiences we had, some of my favorite moments weren’t planned on the itinerary. They came from getting to know women from all over the country, from all sectors of the industry. We shared stories during the long bus rides, and of course, over many beers. I now have friends in San Francisco, New Mexico, Colorado, Boston, Brooklyn, Wisconsin, and North Carolina. None of us had met prior to the trip, and now we are all bonded over this incredible shared experience. I came back from the trip reinvigorated to explore old brewing traditions, and to pay-it-forward to the Pink Boots Society. I want women in San Diego to know whether they are beertending or running brewery operations, there is

BEER IN THE HEADLIGHTS

Bagby Beer

By Ian Cheesman

A Ta l e o f Te a m w o r k

It’s

no surprise that San Diego has been known to venerate many of its brewers. Their toil and creativity is what has established us as the country’s greatest beer city, no matter what those covetous fiends in Portland say otherwise. So when it came to light a few years back that Jeff Bagby, Director of Brewing Operations for Pizza Port and GABF Brewer of the Year honoree, was striking out to start a brewery-restaurant of his own, many a craft brew fan squealed. Bagby Beer Company came to fruition in spectacular fashion. Not only were the new Oceanside digs a sprawling 11,000 squeet feet, but it would ultimately come to house 60-odd taps (a plurality of which are Bagby’s brews), a full gastropub menu, a cocktail and wine program, multiple festivals, a catering business, and a rolling staff of over 70 individuals. It was the turducken of brewpub ambitions. It begged the question of what sort of maniac would try to manage this behemoth? Allow me to introduce the delightful maniac of this story. Dande

Bagby, Director of Brewpub Operations for Bagby Beer Company, has been a driving force in its development. Of course, that’s not to say she wasn’t skeptical initially. “In the back of my mind I was like ‘This will never work. It’s crazy talk!’,” she said. “It’s way bigger than we were thinking about.” It is one thing to consider absorbing the cost of such a massive real estate footprint, but it’s another entirely to shoulder the logistics of retrofitting a 50-year-old car dealership into a modern restaurant space. The “civil engineer’s nightmare” was now Dande and Jeff’s reality. “Every single thing needed to be updated,” she said. “Much of the structural has been replaced, all of the electrical, all of the plumbing, all of the HVAC, everything.”

want you to be here enough that you know about all the ins and outs.” Building a crackerjack staff is not only important for the business, but is an extension of their philosophy that the little things truly do matter. This is observable in many ways, but perhaps best illustrated by the Anatomy Of… section of their website. It details the innumerable tiny considerations made to craft a given product for their menu, an affirmation that they only have offerings they feel personally connected with. “It’s a lot of work to do it this way: to curate the beers that we believe in from brewers that we like and care about, spirits from distilleries that are small, family-owned or have another unique characteristic,” she said. That might smack as a bit obsessive, but it’s a preoccupation that Dande happily owns. “Any time somebody is interfacing with something you’re offering, you want to make sure it’s the best thing they can have,” she said. As much as Bagby Beer Company is celebrated for its libations, seasoned craft fans likewise recognize its unique offerings in the brewfest world. It’s probably best known as the current home of the annual Brewbies festival, which has generated over 310 thousand dollars for the Keep A Breast Foundation to date. Bagby Beer Company has also bucked convention by throwing the occasional mini-fest (a mid-week festival featuring a dozen or so beers for handful of patrons) and are considering similar festivals for spirits in 2017. These things are hardly a brewpub mainstay, but Dande recognizes a value beyond their admission prices.

After two years of site-searching and construction, Bagby Beer Company opened, bringing with it all the administrative jumble of a large business. This demanded some division of labor. At present, Jeff primarily tackles “liquid ops” while Dande focuses on everything else needed to deliver a brewpub experience to their standard.

“They’re a challenge to organize and a challenge to present or produce, but challenges are great,” she said. “They stretch us and they stretch our creative muscles.”

“I’m part admin, part coach, part bookkeeper, part motivator, part disciplinarian,” she said.

Statements like that suddenly make the seeming insanity of this venture make perfect sense. Bringing Bagby Beer Company into being was never just about ownership or control. For Dande, it represented a chance to share something far more personal.

It is a lot of hats to wear, but it’s necessary to cultivate people that share the Bagby’s vision. Dande further complements this by running as lean a staff as feasible, which she believes fosters a deeper investment in the business. “If you’re [working] here we want it to be worth your while,” she said. “We

“We could have just opened up a production brewery probably two years sooner than we opened this place, but we wanted the whole experience,” she said. “We wanted people to learn about us through all of the things that we offer.” X

Collaboration Celebration

Brent Cordle of Odell Brewing and Stone Brewing small batch brewer Laura Ulrich

DENVER EVENT COMING UP MARCH 25 BY BRANDON HERNÁNDEZ

A

relatively new arrival to the ranks of must-visit beer festivals, Denver’s Collaboration Fest has matched up Colorado Brewers Guild members with other craft breweries from around the country since 2014. This year’s fest, taking place on March 25, features more than a hundred breweries serving 75+ beers brewed specifically for the occasion. Several of last year’s efforts involved San Diego brewing interests. Rip Current Brewing brewmaster Paul Sangster paired up with Littleton’s Living the Dream Brewing to brew a San Diego-style IPA. Stone Brewing small-batch brewer Laura Ulrich cooked up an imperial stout with old friends and coworkers from Fort Collins’ Odell Brewing, where she worked from 2002 to 2004 before joining the gargoyle clan. Both San Diegans were on-hand at the event to interact with festival goers and check out the other beers on the floor. Other San Diego participants included Bagby Beer Company, Ballast Point Brewing & Spirits, Green Flash Brewing and Pizza Port, who worked-up a pair of beers with Cannonball Creek Brewing and Twisted Pine Brewing. The beers ranged from ultra-hoppy to funky, style-bending, or infused with exotic ingredients, creating a beer-list unlike that of any other festival. Some of the standout sours included a tart dark ale with Brettanomyces from Crooked Stave and Evil Twin Brewing, a black saison called “Ramblin’ Man” from Liquid Mechanics and Odd 13 Brewing, “Deux Funk” from Funkwerks and Wicked Weed Brewing, and a vanillin-kissed, barrel-aged sour from Denver Beer and Spangalang Brewing called “Cross Eyed Funktion”. An oak-aged Gose from TRVE Brewing and Prairie Artisan Ales exhibited brilliant depth and fruitiness from Colorado peaches. Rare styles appeared, too, like Kvassier (Call to Arms, Denizens and Conshocken Brewing) and Kottbusser (300 Suns Brewing, Gemini Beer) and a rye- and wheat-beer hybrid (a roggenweiss) from Prost! and Dogfish Head. Even takes on IPAs went outside the box. Epic and Ska Brewing teamed up for a barrel-aged American IPA dubbed “Skeptic Ale”, while Crazy Mountain Brewing and Stillwater Artisan Ales’ “Neoteric” sour wild IPA was one of the fest’s most impressive offerings. There was also a reunion stout called “Breeze’s Mom” brewed by the founders of Call to Arms Brewing with their longtime former colleagues at Avery Brewing. Then there were all-in collabs like an outstanding barrel-fermented sour brewed by Our Mutual Friend, Scratch Brewing and Hopworks Urban Brewery; and a dubbel forged by the collective powers of The Bakers’ Brewery, Breckenridge Brewery, Pug Ryan’s Brewery, Angry James, Broken Compass, Backcountry and Dillon Dam Brewing. Some may find it difficult to justify traveling halfway across the country for three-to-four hours of beer-tasting, no matter how outstanding, but more awaits visitors to Collaboration Fest. Denver is home to 65 breweries, brewpubs and beer-centric bars and restaurants, many of which—roughly 25 breweries

and 20 or so hot-spots, including Falling Rock Tap House, Euclid Hal, Star Bar, First Draft, Tap 14 and Avanti—occupy the downtown core. Thanks to free public transit along the 16th Street Mall, a wide array of them can be accessed easily and expeditiously. And because the event is held during Colorado Craft Beer Week, many of those venues have special events and promotions taking place, adding value and enhanced experiences to one’s travel itinerary. San Diegans are fortunate to live in a suds-saturated locale, but remarkable events like Collaboration Fest remind us that there’s a whole world out there worth exploring.

SAN DIEGO COLLABORATION FEST BEERS CANNONBALL CREEK / PIZZA PORT NO MAN’S LAND IPA: Two prolific GABF and World Beer Cup medal-winners teamed up with a drinkable show of hop prowess. EPIC / GREEN FLASH EPIC FLASH SAISON: With its funky bouquet, gooseberry tartness and Sauvignon Blanc like minerality, it was one of the best of this fest. LIQUID MECHANICS / BAGBY INCOGNITO BLACK IPA: Dry and roasty with an evergreen hop-backbone, it made a case for keeping this dying style in play. LIVING THE DREAM / RIP CURRENT WHAT’S WITH ALL THE CRYSTAL MALT? IPA: An authentic, crisp and dry yet abundantly aromatic and fruity San Diego-style IPA that tasted like home. ODELL / STONE REUNIFICATION IMPERIAL STOUT: Smoky, creamy and chocolatey with a little cherry cordial mixed in, it was a tasty departure from Ulrich’s Stone SOP. SPANGALANG / BALLAST Point Lydian IPL: One of the rare, extremely straightforward beers at the event, it exhibited hallmark lager flavor sans imperial booziness. TWISTED PINE / PIZZA PORT DRY-HOPPED COURAGE KÖLSCH: This beer's name was ironic given its lack of ambition, but a little dryhopping never hurts.

BEST BEERTENDERS

A

stute readers will have noticed that last month’s 16 in ‘16 coverage did not include a “Best Beertender” category. For the past two years, Toronado’s Nate “Islander” Soroko was the resounding winner, and he would’ve likely clinched a three-peat this time around. So, we decided to change up the coverage a bit by asking Soroko to name three local beertenders who inspire him. He picked Kira Bouchard (AleSmith), Shannon Lynnette (Burning Beard), and Joann Cornejo (Machete Beer House).

f*king knowledgeable bad asses

These three are

who really care about beer and about your drinking experience. And as women they have to do it while overcoming the disillusion that they know less than guys. - Nate Soroko

MARCH 2017

SHANNON LYNNETTE BBurning Beard Brewing

WC: How did you get into beer? Typical teenage delinquency. I used to purloin my Dad's Fat Tire from the garage fridge and then had to shoulder tap bums to replace it. I got caught when I miscounted and left too many bottles. My first job was as a hostess and busser at a Brew Pub. When I grew idle, which was often, I would bug the brewer with inquiries on style and process. I was too young to be able to drink any of it, but I enjoyed watching him talk. Listening. I mean listening to him talk. When I was 19, I used to clean my guy friend's bathrooms for six packs of craft beer; the number of six packs directly correlating to the hygiene of the inhabitants. Every bar I worked at from then on, I ended up being the go to person for selling the craft beer that was on hand. You've earned your salt when you've sold a seemingly surly biker on a Belgian.

(As a side note, in my experience bikers are some of the most respectful and best customers I've ever had.) I made it to San Diego because my very dear friend Tanya turned in my resume without my knowledge. Abby made sure it got in to the right hands and I ended up with an impromptu phone interview with Vicky Zien that I was completely unprepared for. It's kind of serendipitous, but Kira and I entered the SD craft realm on the same day. AleSmith couldn't figure out which of us to hire, so they brought us both on. TL;DR Craft Beer and I have been together since I was 15. I'm married to my high school sweetheart.

WC: Any formal beer education? You mean I wasn't supposed to be making this shit up as I go along? Nothing past the CBS. An adoration for academia and learning has always been a prevalent force in


my life and while I have definite esteem for those that have achieved in these areas, I haven't found the time for formality yet. Formality struggles to find resonance with me as it is. As an insatiably curious person, I make sure to ask questions and listen. The desire for knowledge is voracious and ceaseless and this industry is possessed of a definite benevolence when it comes to sharing that passion and information. It's fortuitous for the perpetually inquisitive.

WC: What styles do you hope to see more of in 2017? IPA's. The market could use more. I'd really love to see more ESB's, lagers, and Oud Bruins. Being able to make a good IPA is a given. It's akin to having all of your permits in order. Everyone should be able to do that. Being able to cleanly brew a more classic style shows alacrity in the fundamentals. Lagers; please at least brew one. They take up valuable fermenter space, I get that. Simultaneously, they're revealing of the system that you're working on as well as patience and deference to the process. When done well they are clean and elegant (lookin' at you pilsner and dopplebock). Oud Bruins simply delight me. There's no reason why a brewery should make this, other than they want me blithely perched upon a barstool drinking up all of the stock. Which, for the record, I will most humbly acquiesce.

WC: Job Joys? Brevity is not my strong suite, so in the interest of haphazardly achieving it, I'll boil it down to the lowest common denominator; human connectivity. That's what you get in every pint glass. It's not just a beer, it's the story of us as a species, it's the opportunity to connect with the innocuous question, "what are you drinking?", to celebrate, to mourn, to exist in the allegedly mediocre moments, to be human. To be a facilitator of that connectivity, to not just be a witness but a participant to that breadth of life is truly humbling in the most earnest capacity.

WC: Job Pet Peeves? Lowest common denominator; the uninspired and slovenly. Those that exist simply because it's something to do, or justify capricious capitalism as being "a part of business" instead of looking their avarice in the eye and taking stock of it. We're not the sum of our bank accounts. We're here to build something and proffer a raw part of ourselves in to the world. It takes fortitude, and it takes grit.

Sound your yawp, and do so barbarically. The night was not meant to be quiet.

AleSmith, or in San Diego beer in general, without becoming a walking sponge of information.

KIRA BOUCHARD

WC: What styles do you hope to see more of in 2017?

WC: How did you get into beer?

I embrace Southern California weather to the fullest. I love beers that I can drink easily after a day of rock climbing, hiking, kayaking or anything else I'm getting myself into during my free time. If it's packaged in a can and I can fit it in my back pack, shoot I'll take it five days out into the Sierras, pop it in a river to cool it to perfection and crush after a 12 mile day. Specific styles I need more of in 2017 are Kölsch, Pilsner and ESB. The weather is too good in San Diego for us not to have amazing, easy-drinking core classic styles, and anything with an ridiculous abundance of hops makes me sneeze.

BAleSmith Brewing

I moved to San Diego four years ago. I had no job, no plan, and I liked it that way. I was looking for something new. I found AleSmith was hiring for beertenders and I went for it. I've bartended basically my whole life in high-volume bars and clubs on the East Coast. Finding myself in the country’s best beer city meant serving the best beer and I was at the best brewery in the world to make it all happen. This was a challenge and opportunity I wanted to take. It made me hungry to learn a new industry and craft. There was one job opening at the time and Shannon Lynnette and myself both interviewed and were hired for that position at AleSmith on the same day. We joke that they couldn't decide on one, so they brought us both on together. We would celebrate our "work anniversaries" with flowers, snacks, and of course share some great beer. I'm grateful to have been giving the opportunity from AleSmith owners, Peter and Vicky, back in 2013, and also thankful for for the people I've worked with at AleSmith. There is such an insane amount of talent and passion under this roof it's a little overwhelming. I couldn't have dreamed to fall into a better company with such a hardworking crew. They are all really the ones that make this industry amazing and why I'm still in it today. Passion and a drive for greatness like that, it's addicting.

WC: Any formal beer education? Nope. Living in San Diego, being friends with homebrewers, professional brewers, beertenders and having some of the best beer nerds in the country as your daily guests is plenty of inspiration to try and learn more about beer. It helps that AleSmith has a huge connection the Beer Judge Certification Program because Peter our owner is a BJCP Grand Master Judge, and twenty-five percent of our staff are also active judges. I have my Cicerone Beer Server Certification, but I learn something new about beer literally every day I come into work. You can't walk though these doors and not learn. From the bottling and canning line, social media and marketing, recipe formulation, accounting, draft issues, special events and guest relations, warehouse processes, sales and accounts... even our guests are overflowing with beer culture; we all breathe it. You can't work at

WC: Job Joys? Easy. My coworkers and guests that I interact with every day. You could be having the worst day before your shift, but when you come in and you love the people you work with and also the people that come in for a pint or taster, a total 360 happens. I have never worked with such a diverse team at any job in my life. Everyone comes from somewhere else in the country or world. The entire AleSmith family is really something unique, as are the guests – we get so many people from across the globe seeking out AleSmith beer. People who visit AleSmith are always happy to be here. You can't be in a bad mood when you're around so much great beer. I am also the Expansion Lead for our 25,000 square foot Tasting Room on AleSmith Court. I've worked closely with AleSmith owners Peter and Vicky Zien, CLTVT, and Smith Consulting Architects since the beginning phases of this project. This opportunity has been extremely rewarding and I'm always learning more about the production and construction side of building a brewery, and what it takes down to every detail, from banks, budgets and city permits, to custom steel fabrications, light fixtures and materials, equipment needs, cad designs, IT needs and making unrealistic deadlines actually happen. It's also a joy when you bring snacks. I love snacks.

WC: Job Pet Peeves? People that tell me they don’t like beer. You just haven't tasted beer with the right guide. I promise myself or one of the other genius beertenders on my staff will find you a beer you’ll love in our


taproom. If you get to talking with one of these people you need to find their pallet. Figure out what they usually drink, be it a spirit, wine or commercial lager. Also find out what foods they like, what they're looking for in beer, whether it's something easy drinking, something for desert, a dinner pairing, day drinker, night cap... I'll find you an AleSmith beer you'll love.

JOANN CORNEJO BMachete Beer House

WC: How did you get into beer? Ping pong and foosball nights called for pitchers of Hefeweizen. Then one day after Korean BBQ a run in with O'briens happened; shout out to Tyson for spitting some true beer knowledge. Soon after I was introduced to AleSmith Nautical Nut Brown, and that was my jam. I remember when Kira and Shannon used to pour me beer at AleSmith Cabot when it had white walls and, as always, delicious beers! The rest is history. After lots of beer and frequenting Stone South Park a bunch I knew that I wanted to be behind the bar pouring beer. Luckily Stone Kettner was looking for crew members and as a teacher I wasn't opposed to having a second job that allowed me to interact with adults. I enjoyed my time with Stone, but eventually threw in the towel when we opened Machete. Three jobs just wasn't too practical!

WC: Any formal beer education? Does drinking a lot of beer count? Research… right? Back in 2013, I got my Certified Cicerone Beer Server while working with Stone Brewing Co. Our tasting room manager highly encouraged me to get it. Thanks to Randy Mosher and all my field research, it wasn’t hard to accomplish. I admire my beer friends who have pursued higher education in beer. That’s dope. As for now, I stay up to date by reading articles, skimming through beer books and listening to podcasts.

WC: What styles you hope to see more of in 2017?

We asked Joann, Kira and Shannon to each name 3 beertenders that are inspirational to them. Here’s who they picked and why: JOANN'S PICKS EDDIE TREJO

Machete Beer House

If you're new to craft beer he's the guy you want to greet you behind the bar. If you're a beer expert he's the one you want to pour you a beer. Why? He treats each guest like he's known them forever. His knowledge about beer allows him to match his guests' flavor profiles with a beer they’ll enjoy. He genuinely is one of the nicest and most patient beertenders around, and he has a pretty magical beard that he strokes while he thinks. When I grow up I want to be just like Eddie.

T YSON BL AKE

O’Brien’s Pub

It's true what they say... you never forget your first. Tyson was part of my very first experience with craft beer during a trip to O’Brien’s for my first Russian River beer. Tyson treats everyone like family, so you end up leaving with a belly full of delicious beer and food, and a happy heart. His meticulous way of describing beer, including its flavors, aromas and complexities, always convinced me to try a beer that was new to me. This made each visit a new experience and kept me returning to conduct more "research.”

MARTA G ARCIA-SWANSON

IPL/Hoppy Pilsners! I can’t get enough of these. It seriously is the style to drink all day. There is something about how the hops stand out that really excites me. It’s San Diego in a glass. It’s happiness. Many many many years ago I used to get excited about Fathom IPL. You wouldn’t see it everywhere and when I would, I wouldn’t pass up the opportunity. Fortunately for me, there are many other great local independent choices to enjoy. My current favorites are Burning Beard Millionaire Zeus IPL and, from south of the border, a collaboration between Wendlandt and Fauna: OctoPussy.

KIRA'S PICKS

WC: Job joys?

CIRO BL ANCO

Meeting new people, having that one person come in with a friend who doesn’t drink beer and having them leave with a new favorite style. This just makes my heart flutter! I’m a teacher by day and behind the bar at night, so that “ah-ha” moment is what I live for. Always try to show people their full beer potential… always.

WC: Job pet peeves? “What girly beers do you have on tap?" My usual response, “let me introduce you to my favorite (insert delicious barrel aged beer here)” or “what does that even mean?” Please, just please don’t ask this, it means nothing.

Second Chance

Talk about a craft beer ambassador! Marta is a person who everyone should have in their lives as she's everyone's biggest fan. Her enthusiasm for the beer industry and her constant smiles are always welcoming and make you feel at home wherever it might be. Her energy is contagious and because of that she is inspiring.

Coronado / Mike Hess

Ciro gives immeasurable support industrywide to other breweries and beertenders. My fondest chats with Ciro are about ways to operate more efficiently behind the bar ergonomically and economically for both employees and owners. This guy is incredibly smart and talented.

DREW LOPE Z

Mike Hess OB

This man has an undying love for the industry and his company as deep as his love for his family of two adorable daughters and adoring fiancé Cynthia, who is also a great inspiration to me. They're such a fantastic young family raised on the craft beer industry. It's wild how this culture can bring people together and what you can see it build.


CHRIS MOOSIOS

Cellar 3

I've never met a beertender so passionate about guests. When customers walk through the door you instantly become a friend... an extremely well-educated one at that! Chris loves being on the homefront and getting people into the beer by explaining what goes on behind the scenes. This guy is super passionate and knowledgeable about the process of creating these precious beverages. He captivates people and keeps them coming back not only for the beer, but for his views on industry topics and life wonders.

SHANNON'S PICKS T YSON BL AKE

O’Brien’s Pub

This man is an OG. He approaches otherwise daunting events like the hellish marathon of SDBW with incredible energy. Every conversation I have with him is filled with bright enthusiasm about the beers, their cultivation, and their presentation. He's one of those few personalities that can gracefully bridge a conversation between the most seasoned craft veteran and shiny neophyte. He just plain f*cking rocks.

SAMANTHA DUFAU

2Kids

This woman literally does it all. The only thing below her is the floor, and I'm convinced she'll even scrub that cheerfully. She is resiliently educational and affable with her customer base, and is a bon vivant at the non-pretentious presentation of information. Buy this woman a damn beer!

JAKE COLLINS

Intergalactic / 2Kids

Jake is a rare breed of adorable human. He and I have had lengthy conversations about the actual art of beertending, and its reach past setting down a glass or making sure the faucet isn't submerged. He's one of those individuals that genuinely gives a sh*t about what he does and that translates not just to his customer interaction, but how he presents himself to his colleagues. I've got a lot of respect for that a**hole. X

Lorah Smith with Bangers & Mash

FOODSMITH

SOCIETE BREWING’S LORAH SMITH KEEPS HER COWORKERS FED AND HER FACEBOOK FOLLOWERS SALIVATING L AST Y E A R,

I took a job at Kearny Mesa’s Societe Brewing Company. Having been a long-time fan of that operation, I’d had the pleasure of getting to know numerous members of the Societe team prior to coming aboard. I’d long admired their deepseeded appreciation for beer and the brewing process, and looked forward to working with like-minded souls in that regard. But I had no idea that I’d also find common-ground where my culinary passions are concerned. One of my biggest concerns in spending five-days-a-week at Societe was how I was going to resist the urge to consume The Pupil, The Dandy, The Butcher and their cousins on a far-too-frequent basis. It remains challenging, I’ll admit, but I manage somehow. As it turns out, there’s even more to be tempted by at my workday digs—namely a constant barrage of home-made, edible goodness brought in on plates and platters, in tinfoil and Tupperware, and always warm, odoriferous, fluffy, gooey, piping hot or otherwise desirable thanks to its maker, Lorah Smith. To many, Lorah is “Travis’ wife”, and while that is true from a literal sense (she does sport a wedding band bestowed upon her by our brewmaster), to her family at Societe, she is so much more—kind-hearted spearhead of our charitable and humanitarian efforts, coordinator of our offsite beer-dinners, maternal herder of cats and nourisher of the masses. I found out about that last one after being treated to three days of tasty baked goods during my first week of employment. Many dishes, both savory and sweet, have followed. So, too, have dozens of conversations about food and her daily cooking conquests, proof of which are presented via her appetizing Facebook timeline.

MARCH 2017

BY BRANDON HERNÁNDEZ I instantly felt a kinship with Lorah. We’ve both been bitten by the cookingbug, but she’s far more prolific than I am these days. I marvel at her output and creativity. There have been times when she’s made more food than her audiences can consume. Keep in mind that her audiences regularly consist of her hungry-man husband and trio of kiddos, and the 20-plus employees of a brewery where more than half of those folks have completed a challenge that involves consuming a two-and-a-half-pound burrito and full-serving of imperial stout in less than 20 minutes. To outcook these folks is quite the feat. If you’re not impressed yet, a look at some of the dishes she’s fixed up ought to do it: herb-crusted rack of lamb with balsamic-glazed portobellos and chevre-stuffed potatoes, home-made pho, New Orleans-style Asian braised pork belly, chilaquiles with hatch green chile salsa, and carnitas made from a pig that Travis guy butchered himself. Then there’s the hearty chili made with meat from a bear gifted to the Smiths by local beer-scene gadabout Bobby Mathews, which was both exotic and delicious! And keep in mind, these aren’t things she busted out for special occasions. These are days-that-end-with-a-Y territory. The woman just loves to cook and can do it well. So, when it came time to focus on a local culinarian with chops, gusto and some recipes to share, it was a no-brainer that I shine a light on this generous gastronome. You can call her “Travis’ wife” if you insist, but you’d do just as well to refer to her as “chef.”


BANGERS & MASH

WITH BRAISED CABBAGE AND BEER-ONION GRAVY

PAIRED WITH THE HABERDASHER ENGLISH IPA OR THE PUGILIST DRY STOUT

YIELD: 4 SERVINGS 4 medium Russet potatoes, peeled and quartered ½ cup unsalted butter 4 large yellow onions, thinly sliced

To serve, place a mound of mashed potatoes onto a plate and top with a sausage. Ladle the onion gravy on top of the bangers and mash. Spoon some cabbage on the side and serve immediately with an English-style IPA or dry Irish-style stout.

CHERRY COBBLER

PAIRED WITH THE SAVAGE FERAL DARK ALE WITH CHERRIES YIELD: 6 SERVINGS

4 Irish-style banger sausages

FOR THE BATTER

2 liters English-style IPA (preferably,

⅔ cup whole milk

Societe The Haberdasher)

¼ cup unsalted butter, melted

¼ -to- ⅓ cup whole milk or cream

1 cup all-purpose flour

salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

¾ cup granulated sugar

4 cups cabbage, sliced into 1-inch strips

1 tsp baking powder

Worcestershire sauce to taste (optional)

¼ tsp salt

garlic powder (optional) FOR THE FILLING

Place the potatoes in a large pot of water and bring to a boil over high heat. Continue to boil until the potatoes are fork tender, about 12 to 15 minutes. While the potatoes are boiling, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter in a large skillet over low heat. Add 2 cups of onions and sauté until soft and tender, about 6 minutes. Place the bangers to the skillet and add enough beer to cover them. Bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until the bangers are fully cooked, 15 to 20 minutes. You may need to add more beer to keep the bangers covered at least to the halfway mark as the liquid evaporates. Once the potatoes are tender, drain and transfer to a large mixing bowl. Mix in the milk and 5 tablespoons of butter and mash to desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper, then cover to keep warm. Melt the remaining butter in a large skillet over low heat. Add the onions and sauté until they begin to caramelize, 10 to 15 minutes. Add the cabbage and some of the broth from the bangers to help wilt it. Cook until slightly tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove the bangers from the broth and keep warm. Increase heat to medium-high and reduce the onions and broth mixture by half to create a thin gravy. Add Worcestershire sauce, and season with salt, pepper and garlic powder as desired.

1 cup plus 2 Tbsp granulated sugar 1 Tbsp cornstarch ¾ cup boiling water 4 cups fresh cherries, stemmed and pitted

vanilla ice cream (optional) Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. For the batter, cut the milk and butter into the remaining dry ingredients and set aside. For the filling, place the cherries in the bottom of a greased 9-inch baking dish. In a small bowl, combine 1 cup of sugar with the cornstarch. Stir in the boiling water, then pour the mixture over the cherries. Pour and spread the batter evenly over the cherry mixture. Evenly sprinkle the remaining sugar over the cobbler. Place in the oven and bake until the cobbler top is golden-brown and cooked through, 45-50 minutes. Remove from the oven and let stand 5 minutes. Serve warm alone or topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Either way, pair this dessert with a Flanders-style red ale or barrel-aged, cherryinfused sour ale. X

INTO THE BREW

By Sam Tierney I’m not going to pretend that this is a list of “5 beer styles that will be the next hot thing this summer.” Or this winter. Or you know, any time soon. I have no reason to believe that any of these styles will be the next IPA. You still like IPA, right? All I know is that these beers don’t get the love and respect that they deserve and it makes me sad. If you are a brewer you should make one of these, and if you see one on tap somewhere, order it. That IPA will be there next week, don’t worry.

GRISETTE

Grisette is like Saison’s younger, less popular sister. You know when a song starts with a rhythmic series of notes and you start to fall into the groove, and then the drums come in and you realized you were totally grooving to the wrong beat? Grisette is kind of like that too; it’s basically a wheat Saison. You smell it and you’re like, “oh, cool, Saison yeast aromatics,” but then you take a sip and you’re like, “but this has a certain something that I wasn’t quite expecting.” Ya, Grisette is like that. Witbier is pretty cool. Grisette is cooler. Also cool are the tart, barrel-aged versions that a few brewers are doing.

DARK CZECH-STYLE LAGERS

The dark lagers of Bohemia don’t see much love in the US. Cerny (black) and Tmavy (dark) lagers barely register a blip here and that’s just wrong. Take the richness of decoction mashing and throw in a healthy dose of roasted malt and you get ridiculously balanced dark lagers that tend to also have a nice hop balance to boot. Typically a bit maltier than their German cousins, these guys even come in session-strength versions. Sure, Pilsner is the darling of Bohemian brewing but its relatives can be just as personable.

M I L D A L E Poor, poor Mild Ale. It’s one of those beer styles that you just can’t help but feel sorry for like some destitute orphan in a Charles Dickens novel. That’s mild ale over there in the gutter, begging you for an opportunity to make a good impression. Don’t be a Scrooge, order a pint for the love of all that is good about traditional English brewing. So Mild Ale has a branding problem, I get it. It’s dark, weak, and generally doesn’t make much of an impression. At first sip, it even seems a little watery. You could have sworn that this beer looked like it packed more of a punch. But then, halfway through that first pint, it all comes together. You find yourself ordering another and wondering how a beer can be so demure and yet so moreish. For one glorious moment, you forget about hops.

PALE LAGERS

( T H A T A R E N ’ T P I L S N E R ) Pilsner is having a moment. It’s no longer just another fizzy yellow beer and you don’t know how happy that makes me. And yet, I feel for all the other pale lager styles that have yet to find true love and acceptance in this brave new world of craft beer. Another set of distinctions without difference? There are a myriad of pale lagers styles around the world that are variations on a theme, far less different than say, a San Diego Pale Ale and a New England IPA. Dortmunder is a bit hoppier, Helles is a bit maltier, Kellerbier is a bit hazier, and Heller Bock is a bit portlier. Give me pilsner malt, a noble hop, and some lager yeast, and I will show you the world. Give me some corn or rice too and I’ll show you even more. I guess it’s a super geeky brewer thing to muse over the beauty of the possibilities of such simplicity. I even believe in the power of American Lager. Make Pale Lager great again.

SMOKED BEER

While this isn’t so much a style as a defining flavor characteristic, it deserves some love. Often a rare, one-off curiosity, the smoked beer comes in various guises from the Rauchbier of Franconia to Smoked Porters and the back-from-extinction Graetzer. I have to hand it to the die-hard brewers that have been staking a claim in this style for years now, but for some reason, they never really caught on in general. The beauty of a great smoked beer is that the smoke fades with time. Those first couple of sips can be bracing, but then it all melts together in your mouth like a handful of M&Ms, and you wonder how you ever lived without this glorious beverage. I’ll be the first to admit that overly-peated smoked beers can be gross, phenolic messes, but a well balanced smoked beer brings a dimension and complexity that few other beers can match. X

It’s For A Good Cause A QUICK GUIDE TO COMMUNIT Y SUPPORT BY THE BEER INDUSTRY

Buddies Jacob Nikos (Societe) and Josh Hembree (Setting Sun Sake) are losing weight for charity. It started when Josh challenged Jake to a monthlong weight loss challenge, based on weight lost by percentage. If Josh wins, funds raised from family and friends go to Keep A Breast; if Jake wins, Pints For Prostates gets the cash.

Hockey and beer collide at Bay City, a brewing operation just steps from the San Diego Gulls' home turf of Valley View Casino Center (locals may know it better as the Sports Arena). The brewery's Power Play IPA, a juicy 6.9% ABV brew with Azacca and Citra hops, debuted on February 17 during a fundraiser for the San Diego Gulls Foundation. Until the end of the season, a portion of proceeds from the beer’s sales will benefit the same organization, and the tasting room will stream all Gulls games — home and away.

Part of sales from a rotating Bitter Brothers pint benefits a new charity each month. March’s beneficiary is Special Delivery San Diego; April is Feeding San Diego; and May is Beer to the Rescue for the Lupus Foundation of Southern California. Additionally, the brewery’s quarterly beer dinner raises money for Feeding San Diego, with the last iteration funding an estimated 5,000 meals. The next beer dinner is scheduled for Sunday, April 30.

Blind Lady Ale House – along with sister bar Tiger!Tiger! – are helping different organizations each month through 2017: National Organization of Women SD (March); The Center (April); Bike Month with Bike SD, SDDBC, Bikes Del Pueblo & SD Velo Youth (May); June: Dreams of Change (June); Feeding San Diego (July); California Innocence Project (August); Outdoor Outreach (September); Border Angels / Angels de la Frontera (October); Girls Rising


(November); and SD Refugee Tutoring (December). A percentage of sales from Monday’s Meatless Pizza night (Blind Lady Ale House) as well as food sales on Thursday night (both Blind Lady and Tiger!Tiger!) will serve these groups; see more info at www.SDAgentsOfChange.com.

Amplified Ale Works and Karl Strauss continue brewing their Pathway Ale collaboration, funds from which go to installing safe bike paths in Pacific Beach via Beautiful PB, the neighborhood’s business improvement district. Close to $7,000 has been raised since the first Pathway Ale in the fall of 2015, and brewers are optimistic for even more donations this year alone. 2017’s tentative schedule includes a variety of styles: Milk Stout, Single Hop Crystal IPA (Q1); Red IPA, Berlinerweisse (Q2); Japanese Rice Lager with Hallertau Blanc hops, Pale Ale with experimental hops (Q3); and Justin Vineyards Cabernet Barrel-Aged Saison with pluots, Chai Thai Coffee Cream Ale (Q4).

The event calendar for Second Chance Beer Company has been packed with events supporting good causes. Here are some upcoming happenings: International brew benefiting Pink Boots Society (March 4); annual fundraiser for Donate Life San Diego (March 11); parents' night out fundraiser for Poway High School Foundation to raise money where state funding is lacking (March 18 – private event); Lawyers Club of San Diego Community Outreach Fundraiser (April 26); “Ride Above Disability” event for Therapuetic Riding Center (April 29); and Zero Waste San Diego “Fix-It Clinics” to give items a second chance (one Saturday per month through spring). Also, a portion of wholesale and retail sales from Brewbies On My Mind Pink Saison, now a yearround release, goes to the Keep A Breast Foundation.

One-year-old Pure Project Brewing are members of the 1% For The Planet network of organizations, contributing 1% of their sales every day go to environmental champions like San Diego Surfrider, San Diego Coastkeeper and Outdoor Outreach. The brewery's first anniversary party in January benefited the scholarship program of Outdoor Reach. Looking forward, a beer release on May 7 benefits Beer To The Rescue for Lupus research and awareness.

A portion of sales from every beer sold at the outdoor ChuckAlek Biergarten benefits their non-profit neighbor in the North Park space: Art Produce. Funds go towards Art Produce’s gallery and community event programming, which in turn draw customers to the beer space and accompanying restaurant Tostadas. This dynamic is described by owners as a “social entrepreneurship model.”

Freshman operation Eppig Brewing teams up local and national organizations frequently, including for these upcoming events benefiting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (March 4); Experience Camps (March 14); Emilio Nares Foundation (March 28); and Simle Train (April 4). The beneficiary from sales on March 21 is to be determined. Eppig also collaborated with local indie band Weight of the Sun, with proceeds from the IPA going to the National Pancreatic Cancer Foundation.

Both locations of Iron Fist Brewing Company (Vista and Barrio Logan) have hosted a variety of events geared towards charitable causes. Coming up on March 12, Ricky Smith of the R.A.K.E. organization (Random Acts of Kindness Everyone) visits Barrio Logan as part of his tour hitting 50 cities in 30 days. Details are still being finalized; view more info at www.RakeNow.org.

Societe Brewing Company siphons part of Tuesday sales to a different charity each month, plus a big annual food drive in November and December for the Jacob and Cushman SD Food Bank. Here are the organizations they’re working with in 2017: Azuna-Kai (March); Frosted Faces Foundation (April); Beer to the Rescue (May); Foundation for Prader-Willi Research (June); SENA (July); August is TBD; The Rescued Dog (September); Breast Cancer Angels (October); Pints for Prostates (November).
