In West Coaster’s ​latest ​r eader poll, Mikkeller Brewing San Diego was voted Best New Beer Spot. The Miramar brewery celebrated its first anniversary in late April with games, a pig roast and multiple beer releases. One of those releases, Raspberry Blush Berliner-style Weissbier brewed with raspberries & coffee, is a new core offering for the company. You can read more about their latest collaboration with Insurgente and Silenus on page 34.

BREWS IN THE NEWS Brewers Association Releases Growth Figures In late March the Brewers Association, the trade association representing small and independent domestic breweries, released 2016 data on craft brewing growth. As it stands, more than 5,300 breweries now represent 12.3% market share by volume of the overall beer industry. 826 new breweries opened nationwide, while 97 closed. In terms of production, craft brewers made 24.6 million barrels in 2016 with an estimated retail dollar value of $23.5 billion (21.9% market share). Production grew 6% (1.4 million barrels), meaning “craft brewer growth outpaced 1.2 million barrels lost from the craft segment, based on purchases by large brewing companies.” Also, brewpubs and microbreweries — those producing 15,000 barrels or less per year — delivered 90% of the craft brewer growth. “Small and independent brewers are operating in a new brewing reality still filled with opportunity, but within a much more competitive landscape,” said Bart Watson, chief economist, Brewers Association. “As the overall beer market remains static and the large global brewers lose volume, their strategy has been to focus on acquiring craft brewers. This has been a catalyst for slower growth for small and independent brewers and endangered consumer access to certain brands. Small and independent brewers were able to fill in the barrels lost to acquisitions and show steady growth but at a rate more reflective of today’s industry dynamics. The average brewer is getting smaller and growth is more diffuse within the craft category, with producers at the tail helping to drive growth for the overall segment.” In 2016, craft brewers produced 24.6 million barrels, and saw a 6 percent rise in volume3 on a comparable base and a 10 percent increase in retail dollar value. Retail dollar value was estimated at $23.5 billion, representing 21.9 percent market share. By adding 1.4 million barrels, craft brewer growth outpaced the 1.2 million barrels lost from the craft segment, based on purchases by large brewing companies. Microbreweries and brewpubs delivered 90 percent of the craft brewer growth.

opened on April 10, complete with a bowling alley, bocce ball courts and more. 255 Redel Road. In Vista, Battlemage Brewing will open to the public on May 6, utilizing a fivebarrel system to brew a variety of beer styles including multiple IPAs. Also be on the lookout for collaborations with business park neighbor Henebery Spirits. 2870 Scott Street Suite 102. In Chula Vista, both Chula Vista and Thr3e Punk Ales are now active. The former’s grand opening is set for Friday, May 5 at 294 Third Avenue. Just 500 feet away, Thr3e Punk Ales fired up their system in late April at 259 Third Avenue, with local veteran Bill Batten consulting on all things fermentation.

Controversies In Beerland Bend, Oregon-based 10 Barrel Brewing Co., famously acquired by AB InBev in 2014, is still awaiting final approval to open their brewpub in the East Village, with advertised shuttles to and from “Petco Field” yet to fire up. In the meantime, three local breweries — Monkey Paw, Resident, and Half Door — are teaming up to craft 11 Barrel IPA, with a portion of proceeds going to homeless and hunger causes in the neighborhood. In a Facebook post, Monkey Paw owner Scot Blair invited the public to join for both the mash in (May 10 at 8 a.m.) as well as the pub crawl (May 28 from 2 - 6 p.m.). For an op-ed from 10 Barrel co-founder Garrett Wales, turn to page 24. In mid-April, the Brewers Association (BA) announced that they would be amending their marketing and advertising code to curb breweries from using offensive or sexist names and labels. These breweries can still join the BA and enter beers into competitions, but if they win, “we would not read that name from the stage,” said BA president and CEO Bob Pease. “We want our members to be responsible corporate citizens,” Pease said. “We want to err on the side of tolerance. It’s not going to be black and white. There’s a subjective element to that, and the Association, we’re going to find ways to be inclusive. But at the same time, we do think this step is the right thing to do and shows the leadership that is needed. But it’s going to be sticky. It’s going to be hard.” Here are the 10 areas the BA says breweries should not stray into with their marketing: a.  portray, encourage, or condone driving and drinking; b.  depict situations where beer is being consumed excessively, involuntarily, as part of a drinking game; c.  portray persons lacking control over their behavior as a result of consuming beer; d.  portray or imply illegal activity as a part of drinking beer;

Sometimes I Like It Ugly By Jeff Wiederkehr, Co Founder, Head Brewer, Burning Beard Brewing Co.

Thinking about the Hazy IPA and really trying to work it out as a lover of San Diego, San Diego beer, and beer tradition. What is it about this new spin on the IPA that is so polarizing? Eventually, these thoughts on the Hazy IPA brought me to music. There are so many correlations that range from the creative process, to the groupies, and even the simple core ingredients for recipes and song writing. Like beer, rock ‘n roll does not require many ingredients. Essentially: Three chords for a verse. Three chords for the chorus. Maybe repeat. If one is clever, there may be a two or three chord bridge in there and maybe that bridge would appear just before a guitar solo or a moody break, and then it would return to the chorus. The End. Rock ‘n roll certainly is not High Math, but the endless combinations and variations of the simple ingredients that have been created by AC/DC and the Ramones alone is mind-boggling. How do they do so much with so little? We all do the same with beer. Look at category 21 in the 2015 BJCP Style Guide to see a similar beer trend: A bunch of sub-styles and a million recipes. Consider the simplicity of song structure and then ask: How do bands like AC/DC or the Ramones go about writing a song? Or better, how do we learn to write a song or build a recipe? In either case, the answer is the same. It starts with inspiration brought on by a myriad of both conscious and unconscious influences. I have written a ton of songs in my day, inspired by almost every artist found in the Beard jukebox (almost everything because the Venn diagram of Jeff and Mike musical taste does not overlap

100%). Sometimes I wasn’t good enough to play the music of those I aspired to. And sometimes, though not so often, I was “better than them” and I’d “fix” a song. Really, back in those days, I just did not understand that sometimes the bass player is holding down a single note because that is what the song needs (I am sure you can name a few beers born of this type of hubris). And sometimes my innate sense of personal rhythm would change the feel or the mood of a song, even though I had someone else’s song right in front of me. My personal mood and rhythm—sort of like my local ingredients—prevented me from being someone else. One classic musical example of this phenomenon is that of U2 and The Clash (but feel free to think White Stripes borrowing from Delta Blues, or Nirvana borrowing from the Pixies, or the Ramones borrowing from Buddy Holly). U2 wanted to be the Clash and, bringing it back to beer for just a moment, most breweries that have made an IPA within the last <insert a long period of time here> have wanted to emulate breweries like Alpine Beer Co. for example. But with U2, the interesting thing for me is their unique makeup of personalities and combination of limitations, and ironically even their strengths, that made them fall short of actually writing Clash songs. In the end, no matter how hard they tried, all U2 could ever be is U2. Extend this analogy to Alpine’s Nelson for example, or any of Alpine’s IPA’s for that matter. We can all know what’s in the beers. But take that beer, that song, and put it in someone else’s hands. Often it is forgettable, or worse. However, sometimes it becomes something unexpected: good, memorable,

or (whether conscious or unconscious) a new twist to an old favorite. For me, this is how we got Heady Topper. Take what we (Ha! We? [Pat McIlhenney et al.]) were doing out here on the West Coast and put it in the hands of someone who respects the IPA tradition, but is of a different mood and rhythm. Or for a brewery, of a different site and situation, like Alchemist. They, like U2, can’t help but have a different perspective on the same ingredients. Then add in a different water profile and a different approach to dry hopping—just a different approach to the same song—and next thing you know, you have a different song. In my mind, this is how we got Heady Topper, a beer I contend was deeply inspired by Nelson. Heady Topper is made with the same simple components, but with different techniques. It’s mouthfeel and perceived bitterness both play into giving us a different experience with the aromatics. This is U2 trying to be The Clash. Heady Topper trying to be Nelson. Year Zero for the Hazy IPA. I know that purists are inclined to shun the style, but that is what purists do. They hold on to traditions. I respect that perspective. I too love tradition. I even agree with much of the criticism. Sure, some breweries it seems are jumping on this style to cash in. And sure, some are doing it without doing their homework and they don’t quite seem to understand that there shouldn’t be any yeast, nor hops in suspension. But, shunning this sub-style because of a few poorly made beers is like claiming that rock ‘n roll is bad after seeing a horrible local rock show. We are smart enough to know that rock ‘n roll isn’t bad, but

sometimes rock ‘n roll bands are, right? Often, these bands just aren’t around long enough to learn how to master the insanely complex job of wielding their simple three chord ingredients. But sometimes they get it. And when they do, both in music and in beer, often they tap into my second favorite thing about tradition: It is fun to turn tradition on its head. The result of the best of these beer-making blasphemers, in an era where everyone thinks we have already done everything, is both creative and innovative. Moreover, at base, it just tastes good, and that, for us at the Beard, is exciting. Actually, it is inspiring. So much so, that we are proud to say that we have created a few of these Frankenstein, McIlhenneyinspired, West Coast hazy-abominations with crazy mouthfeel and a multidimensional aromatic experience. No, we aren’t making “lazy” IPAs. We are applying science and technique to achieve a different flavor experience. And we aren’t making N.E. IPAs (think about it, do New Englanders say “give me a San Diego IPA” when they order Duet? No they don’t [now I am being a purist]), we are making IPAs that happen to be hazy as a result of the unique combination of process, ingredients, and timetable, the result of which is a beer that takes a long time to clarify. (Note: you will find neither yeast, nor hops in suspension in our hazy beers.) And yes, the beer would eventually clear up. Gravity always wins.

In conclusion, I suggest a group re-think on Hazy IPAs. Let’s think of rock ‘n roll before the purist in us shuns the Hazy craze. To certain people, AC/ DC, the Ramones, and even early-era Beatles (my favorite era) exemplify low quality noise, lacking both production value and creativity. For me, these bands are the Hazy IPAs of rock ‘n roll – Ugly, but glorious – infinitely more complex than most know, but certainly not for everyone. Then again, neither are clear IPAs (maybe post-Sgt. Peppers Beatles of beer?). To claim that Hazy IPAs are an abomination that we should seek to destroy “through better practices” is a purist mantra that I believe will leave a lot of beer brewers and drinkers alike sounding silly. I mean, you are just setting yourself up to be the stereotypical Old Man that shook his fist at Jerry Lee Lewis and cried “This isn’t REAL music!” Deep thoughts: Was Peter Celis the Jerry Lee Lewis of Hazy beers? •

Q&A with S D BEER TALK G R E G H O M YA K A N D B R I A N B E AG L E CO M P L E T E 1 0 0 P O D C A S T E P I S O D E S Photos by Tim Stahl

You're coming up on your third anniversary in August. What have you learned that you wish you could go back in time and tell yourself? GREG : I would tell myself two things. First, make sure everyone involved in the show is on the same page. At the beginning we suffered from rants and tangents which turned off some listeners to the show. Also, we didn’t do a show every week; scheduling was sporadic at best. Second, I’d tell myself to be more prepared. During the first 20 episodes we had no predetermined questions and no structure to the show. It wasn’t until I asked Brian Beagle to join the show that that changed. His one requirement was to have a “show sheet” with at least some sort of structure and direction for what we wanted to accomplish.

BRIAN : Originally, I was extremely nervous to interview the amazing indie beer industry members we've been fortunate enough to have on the show. If I could go back to the beginning, I'd tell myself to squash that nervousness and reassure myself that the San Diego craft scene is full of incredibly interesting, talented, and approachable people. They say craft beer people are good people; in my experience craft beer people are the best people.

You're now 100+ episodes in. I'm sure all guests have had something to offer... but which guests have been particularly memorable? GREG : Well I realized that not all people in the industry talk like a sailor. So during our first interview with Liz and Curtis from Council Brewing on Episode 9, Hooker and myself are swearing left and right, not realizing that neither one of them cuss. While I don’t think they minded, it was awkward at times. Another guest, Brian Mitchell, has been on the show eleven times. The first time he came on was when he worked for Twisted Manzanita, which was only for a few months. We should have titled that show “Brian Mitchell” and not “Twisted Manzanita” since the company actually asked to come back on shortly after to do a “proper” show. Mitchell always brings his no-BS attitude.

BRIAN : First off, I have to shout out the two most prolific guests in terms of appearances, Brian Mitchell and Alex Van Horne. They’ve had nearly 20 appearances between the two of them, yet never at the same time. It's difficult to pick other favorites from the amazing people we've had a chance to meet but here goes, in no particular order: Jill Davidson, Ray Astamendi (hilarious), Shannon Rogers, Shawn McIlhenney, Carli Smith, and Cosimo Sorrentino. Secondly, I’d like to give a special shout out to some of our fill-in hosts: George Thornton, Travis Hudson, and Tom Keliinoi.

18

M AY 2 0 1 7

Who have you not had on the show that you would like to? GREG : Even though we now have recorded over 100 episodes, we have barely scratched the surface of the independent beer community. While we probably won’t stop until we hit pretty much everyone in San Diego craft beer, there are a few off the top of my head that I would love to interview. In no particular order: Tom Nickel, Jeff and Dande Bagby, Lee Chase, Peter and Vicky Zien, and Jacob McKean. We are also very excited to talk to newer breweries like Rouleur, Thunderhawk, California Ale Works, and Black Plaque (when they open).

BRIAN : I agree with everyone that Greg mentioned and would add Greg Koch, Tomme Arthur, Chris White, Mike Hinkley, Matt and Rachael Akin, Chris Cramer and Brandon Hernández.

Has your perception of San Diego beer changed over the years? GREG : My overall perception has not changed. I still see breweries helping other breweries, new and old. I see brewers giving advice to other brewers, even homebrewers. What I do think has changed is the maturing of the industry. We’ve seen brewers like Cosimo, Chuck Silva, Mitch Steele, and (most recently) Bill Batten leave their breweries and move on to their next challenges. For two of them, it meant leaving San Diego to other beer markets. I still am waiting to see where Cosimo and Bill land. The other perception I’ll talk about is that all brewers get along. I’ve learned over the years that there are groups of brewers that seem to get along better than others. While there are many factors that lead to that, I think that if you put 140+ people together who are all trying to do the same thing, all with their own artistic goals and methods, there will be certain people that just do not get along.

BRIAN : My perception really hasn't changed much. I'm still completely enamored with the industry and community alike. My knowledge has grown tremendously, though, which I feel has lead to deeper and more meaningful conversations with our interviewees.

How do you fund the podcast? GREG : Originally all the cash came from my pocket. All the equipment, hosting fees, beer and food that was purchased, and hundreds of hours spent editing was all for the love of the podcast. As anyone can assume, that is not a reliable method long-term. While I will never complain about the time or money spent on this podcast, I quickly went looking for a solution. I listen to

a ton of podcasts myself, and about two years ago another podcast started talking about how their listeners can support them by using a website called Patreon. The short description is that any artist, whether you paint, build things, make music, or podcast, can sign up and allow their patrons to pledge money towards specific artwork or on a monthly basis. We chose to go for a monthly pledge rather than a per episode pledge (patreon.com/sdbeertalk). To me that helps our listeners budget their life easier and I feel it helps them decide whether or not they want to pledge. The really cool part is we are

covering almost 100% of our monthly costs, including buying some of the beers we enjoy on the show. However, we would love to see more pledges. With more pledges we can improve the show and buy better equipment. It’s what we call “the value for value model” which means that if you enjoy the show, please help us make a better show. If anyone is interested in pledging, please go to sdbeetalk.com/support. Oh! We also sell shirts for anyone who wants to support the show and help get the word out (store.sdbeertalk.com). •

Beer At The Ballgame By Ryan DeBusk

T

he Petco Park beer lineup is in a league of its own. Most major league stadiums around the country have a “Craft Beer Corner” where local breweries are relegated to the peripheries of an otherwise macro-dominated landscape. High in a nest of AB InBev – the Cardinals’ Busch Stadium in St. Louis – one season-ticket holder described the selection to me as “Goose… and, well, what kind of Bud do you like?” Departing from the laid-back stereotype, San Diego fans have come to demand local in their beer selection, and Petco Park has answered the call. This year’s hot new prospect, Gaslamp native Resident Brewing, has brought their hazy singlehop Chasing Citra IPA. Yes, you can get hazy IPA at a Major League Baseball stadium now, at their cart near section 103 and “Wonderland” on the top level by section 307. If you're looking for tart options, you can find Mike Hess My Other Vice Berliner Weisse at the five locations of “Craft Beers of San Diego” (sections 107, 211, 229, 303, 328), plus Ballast Point Sea Rose Tart Cherry Wheat at the “Craft Pier” in right-center field and “The Draft” by Ballast Point by section 205. Want something hoppy? 16 oz. cans of Pizza Port Kook Double IPA are available at the five Pizza Port locations (104, 121, 213, 311, 320). If you’re like the Padres’ ownership and shopping for a great deal, it’s hard to beat AleSmith Speedway Stout in 16 oz. cans at Seaside Market (section 105) for $10.75. Nearly all draft pours of craft beers in the park are $13.50 for 20 oz. “Craft Beers of San Diego” locations throughout the stadium offer over 30 options from mostly 22 oz. bottles, poured into cups for $16.75. “Craft Pier” in right-center is especially worth seeking out. Lines were shockingly short for drafts from nine different breweries and it’s the only place you can find the likes of Green Flash, Alpine (Windows Up and Duet), and seemingly every beer Ballast Point makes. And last but certainly not least, here are the spots to get AleSmith .394, a pale ale collaboration with Padres legend Tony Gwynn: sections 101, 107, 109, 205, 211, 217 (rebranded Club 19 now featuring more AleSmith beers), 229, 303, 307, 328, Craft Pier, and the roof of Western Metal Supply building.

Op-Ed H AV E YO U H E A RD TH E B IG NE WS? 10 B A R R E L I S N OT FROM SAN DIEGO I love beer. When I started 10 Barrel Brewing with my partners, Chris and Jeremy Cox, we did it because we loved beer, and we wanted to create a business that could support our future (now established and growing) families and that would be fun. To us, beer is about bringing people together for a great time, and that is what is at the heart of our brewpubs. Great beer, great food and fun. Moving our brewpubs outside of Bend, or even the Pacific Northwest has not been a decision we’ve made in haste. Long before our partnership with Anheuser-Busch, San Diego was a city we saw ourselves in, as it has a rich community of craft beer lovers, a great appreciation for the outdoors, and it’s just all around a beautiful place to be and spend time. Busted, I wanted to spend more time in San Diego! I’d like to address one thing, some feedback we’re getting from San Diego residents and businesses is them shouting from the rooftops that “10 Barrel is not local.” We’ve never claimed to be from San Diego, and we’re pretty straightforward with everyone we speak to that we are coming from Bend, OR. Will we be opening a pub in San Diego? Yep. Do we have 100 employees from San Diego and Southern California? Yes and yes. 10 Barrel’s pubs are something that brings all of us great joy, business reasons aside, it allows us to connect with the community on a different level than we would be able to by just having some six-packs on shelves. When the doors finally open, after our utilities are hooked up, one of the things that we are looking forward to sharing with the community is our Charity of the Month program. Each month we choose a charity partner in each of our pub locations and raise money for their organization. We donate all profits from sales of our charity t-shirts to that month’s charity, and on the last Tuesday of each month, from 5pm to 9pm, all profits from the pub are also donated to that charity. There is only one catch with this program, and that is that all of the money donated must stay within the pub’s respective city, and to-date, we’ve raised approximately $350,000 for local charities. Any San Diego charities or non-profits interested in being part of our program can sign-up here: https://10barrel.com/culture/charity-of-the-month/. We can’t wait to do our part to help critical local causes. 10 Barrel is a family, it’s not just a business, we truly care about finding the best people to join our team, and we’re excited to welcome some new faces at our San Diego pub. We’re also really pumped to have Ben Shirley as our brewmaster at the San Diego pub. He’s a SoCal native and was really eager to return to his roots after spending some time up in Oregon. We also have an incredible culinary team at the pub lead by Executive Chef, Tommy Fraioli, who won the coveted 'Chef of the Fest' title at the San Diego Wine & Food Festival. Both Ben and Tommy have the freedom to brew and cook whatever they desire; both plan to utilize a great variety of locally sourced ingredients, and just about everything Ben brews at the San Diego pub, will only be available there. Our goal in moving into the neighborhood is to be one of the many great options for craft beer the city has to offer. We have faith in our beers, our character, and our craft and we want to share it with San Diego. We welcome everyone to come into our San Diego pub and enjoy a beer and a bite to eat with us. For those that choose to take their business elsewhere, we respect your decision and we’ll probably see you around town. If you’re ever up in our hometown of Bend, OR we’ll welcome you there, too. We’re excited to be in San Diego, and look forward to what the future holds.

Works In Progress By Brandon Hernández

​ horn Street Brewery Barrio Logan as pictured T in late March; there has been significant progress since that time.

Thorn Street’s Barrio Logan Brewery Makes Progress It’s been a work in progress for more than a year, and they already celebrate their future digs care of a Mexican-style brew called Barrio Lager, but now Thorn Street Brewery’s brewing and cellaring equipment has arrived at its satellite facility in Barrio Logan. The tentative plan now is to open the tasting room to the public in late summer or early fall. Located at 1735 National Avenue, the 10,500-square-foot brewery is equipped with a 30-barrel brew system with a mix of 30-, 60- and 120-barrel fermenters. This will significantly increase Thorn Street’s production capacity to the tune of 30,000 barrels annually, allowing the formerly small operation ensconced in the quaint, two-story shell of a former North Park homebrew supply store to

grow beyond its humble, well-received beginnings. Thorn Street has signed on with Stone Brewing’s distribution company. The plan is to focus on San Diego County before considering new territories to go after. But the brewery is only half the story here. Thorn Street also took over an identical warehouse next door and has big plans for it that include the potential installation of a distillery, restaurant and retail collective. Also in the works is a 6,000-square-foot outdoor patio. As for the brewery and its 750-square-foot tasting room, Thorn Street hopes to do something that really celebrates the community as well as the people and businesses who call it home. For now, it’s all about getting through the home stretch: producing beer, finishing interiors and joining interests Border X Brewing and Iron Fist Brewing — who operate tasting rooms in the neighborhood — as Barrio Logan’s first beer manufacturer.


A n e a r l y r e n d e r i n g o f t h e ​u p c o m i n g space at Home Brewing Co.

Home Brewing Company Planning Tasting Room Expansion Those who’ve sampled beer within its friendly confines know that Home Brewing Company (2911 El Cajon Boulevard, North Park) has a lot going for it. Seemingly simple in its construct and easygoing in mood, the space effectively accomplishes its mission: exposing clientele to a plethora of exploratory beer styles and, in the best of cases, sparking an interest in taking up brewing. The latter is a bonus, since Home Brewing is connected to next door parent business, The Homebrewer, yet the brewery and tasting room are a product of passion more than capitalist aspirations. And the space feels that way, but owner George Thornton has wanted to change it for some time and that day is drawing nigh. Come June, construction is scheduled to start on an expansion of the tasting room that’s been in the works for three years. The goal of the project is to make Home even more homey, opening up the space to make it evocative of a living room or reading room — bookshelves stocked with accessible written materials and framed photos will be installed to convey that. Jet-black quartz countertops will be installed over the existing bar, giving way to a “shrine-like” tap wall with a bronze, tinted mirror behind it. There will be a sense of transition between each element, all within Home Brewing’s humble, 500-square-foot space. Adding a patio area with a fold-up door opening onto El Cajon Boulevard will expand the space by 150 square feet and free up interior space. With any luck, the project will be completed before summer is up.

Benchmark Satellite Tasting Room Coming To Bay Park Last year, while conversing with the owners of Benchmark Brewing Company, they mentioned their interest in building a satellite tasting facility. Being tucked within Central San Diego’s Grantville community, doing so would allow the business to reach a broader audience. At the time, they were interested in coastal North County — Oceanside to be exact. It seemed challenging geographically, but there was no denying the increased exposure that would come with a satellite operation. This weekend, while inquiring about the progress of that project, I learned it had been abandoned… because Benchmark owners Matt and Rachael Akin just signed the lease on a space in Bay Park. Located at 4112 Napier Street, the future sampling space will provide indoor and outdoor options for patrons. There will be roughly 1,000 square feet of interior space, outfitted with roll-up windows giving way to the street. An additional 1,500 square feet of space will be provided via an outdoor backyard patio of sorts, including a fire pit. The aesthetic will closely mirror Benchmark’s Grantville tasting room and, like that venue, the Bay Park facility will be familyand dog-friendly. The building currently sports a mural that will be painted over with a “vintage-looking, hand-painted sign.” The Akins have yet to determine an exact opening date, but figure to have the tasting room operational and accepting visitors this summer. At that point, beer will be available for on-site consumption, as well as to-go in growlers and four-packs of cans. •

Into the Brew

BEERS IN UTAH: F I N D I N G C R E AT I V I T Y I N CO N F I N E M E N T By Sam Tierney

B

rewers around the world have access to any ingredient imaginable, and in many areas have the freedom to brew any style of beer that they can dream of. It’s no longer uncommon to see lagers, wild ales, hoppy pale ales, and malty dark ales all on the same taplist at a small brewery almost anywhere in the country. Yet amongst the unbridled freedom and creativity that we enjoy, there are still areas where local laws constrain brewers with arcane regulations. Kansas, Minnesota, Oklahoma, and Utah all restrict beer sales in grocery or convenience stores to 4% ABV beer, with stronger beer only allowed to be sold in government regulated monopolies or specially licensed premises. This dates all the way back to the Volstead Act, the beginning of the end of Prohibition, which allowed the sale of 3.2% alcohol by weight beer (which is the same as 4% alcohol by volume) before states were given full control to legalize whatever booze they saw fit. These few states are the last holdouts that decided 4% is just fine, thank you. In Utah, things get even weirder. If you have a liquor licence, you can sell beer on-premise that is stronger than 4% ABV but it has to be served out of a can or bottle and cannot be served on tap. If you have a normal restaurant licence, you can only serve 4% beer and have to also serve food to any patron that orders a beer. You need a more specific “club” or “tavern” licence to sell alcohol without food on the same bill, but only “clubs” can serve liquor and “heavy beer” -- what they call beer over 4% ABV. On a recent road trip to southern Utah, I visited a couple of breweries that hold different licenses, leading to two unique, odd experiences. In Moab, the Moab Brewery has a liquor license that enables it to sell house beers that are over 4% but you have to have the beer poured for you from a bottle or can (they do both). They brew an IPA at both 4% and 7% that is the same except for the alcohol level. The 4% version is served on tap and is canned for grocery store sales, and the 7% version is reserved for the brewery and properly licensed establishments. You can get a beer without any food to go with it, but only in the bar area, which is walled off from the rest of the pub, and you have to be 21 to enter this exclusive area. Besides that quirkiness, I thought that the oatmeal stout on tap was quite nice and drank more like a dry stout at 4% ABV. The 4% ABV IPA on tap was a bit out of balance for my liking, but the pale ale at 6% in a can was more my speed. Located a literal stone’s throw from the entrance to Zion National Park in Springdale, Zion Brewery has to coast by on a measly restaurant license that requires you to order food to go along with its lineup of 4% beers

on tap. Luckily they serve a delicious pretzel stick with beer cheese sauce for three bucks that looked initially like a cheap consolation prize for those looking to pair their beer with more beer, and it turned out to be addictively delicious by itself. Their Echo Canyon IPA was hands down one of the best session (or regular) IPAs that I’ve ever had, and the rest of their lineup was nearly as impressive, including a couple of nice pale lagers, a passion fruit kettle sour, a stout, and two different red ales. As I worked my way through my sample flight, I couldn’t help but be impressed by how much they were able to do while staying under the limit of 4% ABV. Without differing alcohol levels to help differentiate their beers, they adeptly used malt and hops to create unique flavor profiles at the same gravity, all with more flavor than you would expect. As a bonus side-effect, you can try more beers without the risk of over-inebriation and be ready bright and early for a good hike in Zion. While true session beers exist in California, finding a wide variety of styles at 4% ABV from one brewery is virtually impossible. Regulation has traditionally had profound effects on beer styles over the centuries, from the development of session beers in England through wartime rationing, to the higher strength nature of Belgian ales caused by heavy taxation on spirits. To some degree, the general trend in craft beer toward higher alcohol beers is a result of our country's taxation system. Since beer is not taxed based on alcohol level here, it is difficult for American brewers to discount lower ABV beers like brewers in the United Kingdom do, for example. At a similar price, higher alcohol and higher flavor beers are perceived to be a better value by the consumer, driving their popularity. My first trip to a Utah supermarket brought a mix of pity and intrigue, as I perused an entire aisle of 4% beers. You can’t really say that the beer industry in Utah is booming, and Epic Brewing vocally took their second location to Colorado because of the regulations, but you have to admire the lemonade that brewers in Utah have made with the lemon of a regulatory environment in which they find themselves. Sometimes constraints breed creativity. By the time we hit I-15 for the drive home, I was already missing flavorful session beers. Alcohol can be likened to the salt of beer flavor and I think you stop missing it after awhile as your palate adapts. While I am all for less regulation of the beer industry and can still appreciate a beautiful barrelaged imperial stout or a boozy Belgian strong ale, Utah showed me another world of possibilities. •

Q&A W/ Zack Knipe, Kensington Brewing Owner After several years in operation, Kensington Brewing Company gained a name for itself last January when it opened its brewery and tasting room to the public. There was just one oddity — that tasting room is in Grantville versus the business’ namesake community. Owner Zack Knipe lives in Kensington and has wanted to set up shop there from the beginning, but was forced to compromise to bring his vision to fruition. But over the past year, he’s kept his eyes open for a space. One day, a sign went up in the iconic Kensington Video storefront and he pounced on it — along with a number of other suitors for that space. In the end, he won out and soon his brewery’s name will make sense. He knows he has big shoes to fill, supplanting a hometown business of nearly four decades, but thinks his goods have the goods to do right by Kensington and hopes his new venue becomes a hub for the community he harbors so much affinity for. WEST COASTER: WHAT FACTORS MADE IT DIFFICULT TO SETUP SHOP IN KENSINGTON? Zack Knipe: “Downtown” Kensington is an amazing place, but it just isn’t that big. Most of the businesses on the block have been operating for a very long time, so it limits the amount of real estate available for newcomers. Only a couple of opportunities to establish a tasting room on the block have come up over the past four years, and there was heavy competition for those locations. It was difficult! There were a lot of really good businesses competing for our new location, and we pushed very hard to make sure we got the opportunity this time. WC: WHAT’S SO SPECIAL ABOUT THE KENSINGTON COMMUNITY? ZK: As part of my proposal to lease the Ken Video space, I wrote the owners a letter that talked about how I first found Kensington. I am from a small town

in Northern California and came to San Diego to attend USD. Go Toreros! San Diego was such a big city to me that I always envisioned returning to NorCal. Part of my college coursework had me taking some cinema classes. One of the only places in the city to find foreign films or less mainstream films was Kensington Video. During my many trips out to the video store to pick up class materials, I explored the neighborhood and saw that it really has that small-town vibe in a big city. Long story short, being a part of a community like that means a lot to me. It has been where I wanted to raise my family and grow my business for a very long time. Sixteen years later, not only do we have the opportunity to be a local business, but also to setup in a space that first brought me here.

WC: HOW DO YOU PLAN TO CONVERT THIS ICONIC SPACE TO FIT YOUR NEEDS? ZK: Our brewing operations will continue in our current facility in Grantville. We wanted to make sure we are able to have as much room as possible for the community to not only come in and enjoy a great beer, but host an event or community gathering. We will have a large amount of both bar and table seating, and we intend to be as kid-friendly as possible. The space also has a great audiovisual system we hope to use to show some of Ken Video’s classic collection. I don’t want to give everything away, but, aesthetically, we are aiming to have some historic Kensington elements blended with the Spanish and Craftsman-style architecture seen throughout the neighborhood.

WC: WHAT’S THE PLAN FOR THE GRANTVILLE BREWERY? ZK: We originally ended up in Grantville to stay as close to Kensington as possible. Being right down the hill from the neighborhood, we felt we would still serve it. In the process, we learned what great people we have in Allied Gardens, Del Cerro, Talmadge, Normal Heights and a lot of other nearby communities. Many of our regulars love the vibe that we have going in our current tasting room. In the short term, with our current staff, we will solely produce beer in Grantville while retaining the current setup for special events, using our Kensington location as our main tasting room. In the long-term, we hope to reopen the Grantville tasting room with some permanent hours.

WC: WHEN DO YOU EXPECT TO OPEN THE NEW LOCATION? ZK: All of our paperwork is currently being reviewed with the ABC and we are awaiting our posting, which we hope to receive in the next couple of weeks. It is ambitious, but if everything goes as planned, we would like to be open in July. We want to thank everyone who has supported us over the four years it’s taken to get to this point. We look forward to more fun times to come! •


The Doctor’s Office

A Taste of Mexico

By Gonzalo J. Quintero, Ed.D.

C

inco de Mayo, the Mexican-inspired, yet all-American drinking holiday is upon us. Literally translated to mean “The Fifth of May” this “holiday” is meant to commemorate the Mexican Army's defeat of the seemingly unbeatable French at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. No, Cinco de Mayo is not Mexican Independence Day; it’s a day that the Mexican Army won a battle in a war that they ultimately lost. It is also a day that is celebrated throughout the United States with the same fervor as the 4th of July. So, how did Cinco de Mayo — a day that is only a state holiday celebrated in Puebla — become such a big deal here? Los Angeles Times journalist David E. Hayes-Bautista explored the history of the holiday, finding that the roots of its popularity Its roots start in the early days of the American Civil War. The Confederacy had expanded into New Mexico and Arizona. For tens of thousands of Latinos in the American West, slave territory was moving uncomfortably close, so numbers of California's Latinos joined the U.S. Army and organized units of Spanish-speaking cavalry in California and unoccupied portions of New Mexico. When Napoleon’s forces were defeated in Puebla on “Cinco de Mayo” news of the Mexican victory arrived in California where Latinos celebrated by parading through the streets of towns in California. Revelers carried the U.S. flag and the Mexican flag side by side; they sang both "The Star-Spangled Banner" and the "Himno Nacional Mexicano." Cinco de Mayo was made in America, by Latinos who proudly bore the U.S. and Mexican flags to show their support for both the Union and its values, and for the Mexican victory over the French, an enemy whom sought to undermine those values. It’s been a decidedly American holiday ever since. When you think of “Cinco de Mayo” be honest, you’re probably thinking “Cinco de Drinko” which means you have visions of Tequila, Margaritas, perhaps some mescal, and definitely buckets of easy drinking Mexican lagers conjured up. There’s another fallacy. The “Mexican lager” isn’t officially a true beer style. According to The Beer Judge Certification Program’s (BJCP) 2015 style guidelines there is no official designation for Mexican lagers, though many lagers brewed in Mexico may be commonly referred to as such.

produced macro-beer; on the contrary, there are over 4,240 actively brewed lagers in the “Beer Advocate” database. Of those, there are 40 that have the term “Mexican lager” comprising part of their name, and of those 40, all are brewed by craft beer breweries as defined by the Brewers Association. To learn more about this emerging trend we chatted with representatives from two breweries on the forefront of this trend locally: Sara Zeimantz, marketing specialist for AleSmith Brewing Company, and Ivan Maldonado, co-founder of Cerveceria Silenus in Tijuana.

Where did the idea for collaboration come from?

Sara:

To celebrate the 25th Anniversary of their album "40oz to Freedom" Sublime reached out to AleSmith in the hopes of collaborating on an easydrinking beer that was crisp and refreshing. Sublime was looking for a likeminded brewery that could bring a warm-weather beer to fans around the nation while still retaining California roots. The band has spent a lot of time down in Mexico, surfing and hanging out at the beach; they wanted a beachinspired beer.

Ivan: The idea came from Giggles (Mikkeller brewer Chris Giggogly) who

called me up and asked if we wanted to do collaboration. He asked who else we wanted to bring in, and I said Insurgente because they have always supported and helped us out at Silenus. We thought of doing a hoppy lager and went with the idea of brewing a Mexican lager because those of us from Silenus and Insurgente are from Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico and we grew up on this style. We figured we should take a stab at it and hop it up way more. Also, I feel like the old styles are coming back now. You have more and more lagers coming out of craft breweries now, and it is awesome.

Will we start to see more craft Mexican-style lagers or lagers in general in the craft beer community?

Instead, most Mexican lagers would fall into the category of “International Lager.” According to the BJCP, international lagers are the “premium massmarket lagers produced in most countries in the world.” The guidelines continue: “Whether developed from American or European styles, they all tend to have a fairly uniform character and are heavily marketed. Loosely derived from original Pilsner-type lagers, with colored variations having additional malt flavors while retaining a broad appeal to most palates. In many countries, the styles will be referred to by their local country names. The use of the term ‘international’ doesn’t mean that any beers are actually labeled as such; it is more of a categorization of similar beers produced worldwide.”

Yes, lagers are already making a huge presence in the craft beer community. Imported Mexican beers are among the fastest growing beer styles in the U.S. Craft breweries are picking up on this, as they see how much consumers are enjoying this light and friendly style of beer.

International lagers are the fastest growing market segment the world over, including big brands like Modelo Especial, Stella Artois, and Dos Equis Lager. These three brands alone shipped nine million barrels in 2015 alone with massive matching revenue amounts. This trend isn’t just in the realm of mass-

So this Cinco de Mayo you can now don your sombrero, put on your drinking boots and drink your international lagers with a keen sense of history for the holiday. And it seems likely we’ll be enjoying more of this style in the years to come… just don’t put a lime in it. •

I feel we may see more lagers in general, not just Mexican lagers, especially because they are so refreshing. I find that exciting.

INTO UNCHARTED WA T E R S

Beerfish chef RoseAna Peyron takes sustainable seafood dishes in deliciously interesting directions BY BRANDON HERNÁNDEZ The initial idea with this month’s Plates and Pints was to provide readers with a great recipe for a seafood classic – the humble yet luxurious lobster roll. The process for preparing one is far from complicated, but the devil’s in the details and I wanted to dial in the amounts with a local business that had this simple art down to a science. Knowing the commitment to honoring the creatures from the deep blue sea, including sustainable sourcing of those fish and shellfish, I thought of Beerfish on Adams Avenue. And the fact this offshoot of longtime Point Loma craft-beer standout, Sessions Public, sports an excellent ale and lager list sealed the deal. So, I cast my line to this web-footed shoe-in to gauge the interest of executive chef RoseAna Peyron (formerly of Bay Park’s The High Dive). She and her cohorts were game, but they had one request: to focus on something besides Beerfish’s lobster roll. To them, while delicious, it was too traditional, and they preferred to share recipes for some of their more unique and creative spins on seafood classics. A fan of turning recipes on their head, I was happy to cut bait and chart a new course. And I ended up reeling in a pair of whoppers. First up is Beerfish’s BLT. In addition to bacon, lettuce and tomato, theirs is stuffed with a hearty helping of sweet crabmeat. Mayonnaise infused with fresh-squeezed lemon juice brightens the dish and helps it pair with sunny weather that can be taken in on the restaurant’s patio. Then there’s the purely SoCal take on a British-pub favorite Peyron has come up with – a fish and chips burrito. Alaskan cod fried up in a batter built using Plenty For All Pilsner from nearby Fall Brewing Company gets California burrito treatment, rolled up with French fries and a pair of condiments – malt vinegar mayo and tartar sauce—plus some cole slaw for good measure. These innovative and similarly easyto-make recipes eliminated any sadness I had over the (temporary) abandonment of my quest for the perfect lobster roll. That said, folks who would appreciate a good lobster roll, or other seafood staples like clam chowder in a bread-bowl or fresh-shucked oysters can still find them all in a pinch. All of that and more, including clam sourdough toast, line-caught Coho salmon on focaccia and crispy oyster sliders – plus 30 taps of rotating and reliably tasty beer – can be had at this intimate seafood spot. •


Remove from the oil and drain on a plate lined with paper towels. To assemble, lay the tortillas out on a flat surface. Spread tartar sauce and mayonnaise onto the tortilla, then layer with French fries, cole slaw and fish. Wrap into a burrito and serve immediately. Suggested Beer Pairing: Fall Brewing’s Plenty For All Pilsner. The crisp and bright pilsner complements the beer batter and cuts through the tartar sauce and malt vinegar aioli. Plenty For All is very sessionable and not overly filling, so you can actually finish the burrito.

C R A B B LT YIELD: 4 SANDWICHES

THE F&C BURRITO YIELD: 4 BURRITOS ¼ cup mayonnaise 1 tsp malt vinegar canola oil for frying all-purpose flour pilsner-style beer (preferably Fall Brewing Plenty For All) 8 3-ounce pieces, wild, sustainable Alaskan cod 1 Tbsp salt 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper 4 14-inch flour tortillas, warmed and lightly browned ¾ cup tartar sauce 3 cups French fries, cooked 1½ cups cole slaw Whisk together the mayonnaise and malt vinegar, and set aside. Preheat oil to 375 degrees Fahrenheit in a deep-fryer or large pot. Whisk together the flour and beer. Season the cod with salt and pepper, then dredge in the batter. Allow any excess batter to drip off, then transfer the fish to the oil and fry in batches until golden-brown, about 4 minutes.

5 Tbsp mayonnaise 1 Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice 4 hot-dog buns or halved brioche rolls ¼ cup unsalted butter, melted 4 large or 8 small leaves little gem lettuce 8 strips smoky bacon, cooked 16 oz sustainable jumbo lump blue crab meat 24 cherry or pear tomatoes, halved lemon wedges In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise and lemon juice. Brush the buns or rolls with butter, then toast until golden-brown in an oven or on a griddle. Remove from heat and spread mayonnaise onto toasted buns. Layer with lettuce and bacon, then pile on the crab meat. Add an even layer of tomatoes, garnish with a squeeze of lemon and serve. Suggested Beer Pairing: The Harlot from Societe Brewing pairs well with this dish. The Belgian-style extra ale complements the flavors of the Crab BLT, while the Belgian yeast creates a bridge between the smoky bacon and the citrusy lemon mayo.

Beer in the Headlights

BEER to the BY IA N C H E E S MAN

Rescue

Beer has proven to be my salvation more than once. It slaked my thirst after hours of yard work in a way that no other beverage is capable of. It has numbed me to the increasing rancor of political debate during holiday dinners with in-laws. I even have it on good authority from my physician that it has rendered my liver practically bullet-proof, which is bound to pay off eventually. But beer’s good works are far from done. Since 2015 beer has been actively trying to thwart lupus via the Beer to the Rescue campaign. This brainchild of beer-industry professional and West Coaster’s Brandon Hernández (pictured below) has raised more than $75,000 since its inception for Lupus Foundation of Southern California (LFSC). Beer to the Rescue’s initial year-long campaign featured roughly 40 charity events with San Diego breweries, ranging from specialty collaboration brews to breweries donating proceeds from event sales. It was a considerable success, apart from one hitch: the disease that Hernández was combating was likewise combating him.

For the uninitiated, lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease. It can present with everything from rashes to photosensitivity to flu-like symptoms, which makes it as frustrating as it is notoriously difficult to diagnose. Individuals with lupus tend to endure periods of joint pain, fatigue, and gastrointestinal issues, and that’s only the Wikipedia-level summary. The reality of lupus is that it can be experienced as everything from a sporadic imposition on wellbeing to a debilitating syndrome leaving the afflicted bedridden and facing a very real possibility of fatal organ damage. Still worse, while flare-ups can arise randomly, stress can precipitate them as well. Single-handedly bringing a year-long and county-wide charity initiative to fruition is already a difficult enough endeavor without a body entering into open rebellion against itself. This reality spurred Hernández to take a new approach with the 2017 campaign. Rather than span the year with events, Beer to the Rescue will pack all of that activity into May (which, hardly coincidentally, is Lupus Awareness Month). In a way this new strategy is a poetic nod to the reality of living with lupus - it’s an opportunity to hit it hard before it has a chance to push back. For a full listing of events, see page 41. Given the compressed window, it’s all the more impressive that over 40 breweries are stepping up and joining the cause. It speaks volumes about how invested they are in the community at large, but it’s also a reflection of Hernández’s big tent approach to Beer to the Rescue. “Breweries are so different in size and budget, I wanted everyone from the smallest nano[brewery] to feel like they could participate, all the way up to the biggest brewery,” he said. “We could collaborate on a beer, we could do an event, we could do an education-only event, but anyone can donate whatever they want.” That graciousness is clearly reciprocated. For brewmaster and co-founder at Second Chance, Marty Mendiola, supporting Beer to the Rescue is a chance to demonstrate the camaraderie so typical among those in the industry. “When our friends and colleagues

are involved in both a personal and professional level, it makes it even more poignant and important for us to participate,” he said. The specialty XPA that Second Chance Beer Co. will be tapping for Beer to the Rescue will be in good company: 20 other breweries are likewise cooking up something novel with designs on donating proceeds from their sales to LFSC. The options look to be quite diverse, so if “Spring Fling Lemon Verbena Saison” from Bitter Brothers Brewing doesn’t tickle your fancy, perhaps Bear Roots Brewing’s Belgian Coffee Ale will. I was personally most intrigued by the Oat Imperial Pale Lager from ChuckAlek Independent Brewers (launching May 28th) and Hoppy Tart Raspberry Beer from Booze Brothers Brewing (available May 5th). Most of the additional Beer to the Rescue events represent a chance to up your charity game simply by buying beers on select days (a good cause from any vantage point), usually with LFSC volunteers on-hand to interact and educate. However, if you’re looking for a change of pace, consider Rafflemania happening at both Barrel Harbor Brewing locations on May 8th, where each pint purchased enters customers for a chance to win prizes at the top of each hour. If you prefer to not let luck guide your destiny, the Foosball & Cornhole tournaments that Iron Fist Brewing is hosting on May 26th should meet your needs. The proceeds generated by Beer to the Rescue have already gone a long way to providing cost-free support services for people living with lupus in San Diego and Imperial Counties, as well as educational programs and grants for lupus research. This year a new target for the funds has emerged with a scholarship program to engage in-training medical professionals in the fight against this disease. It’s not often you can enjoy a pint and seriously consider that it could well donate the dollar that leads to a diagnostic breakthrough. It’s always considered good form to raise a glass and toast to good health. This May, why not help Beer to the Rescue extend that same glass to do the same? •

Ritual Kitchen & Beer Garden has proudly served the North Park neighborhood. After ten years, we will be closing on our terms & not without fanfare!

Goodbyes are always diďŹ&#x192;cult, and we want to make sure all of our family & friends have a chance to come & enjoy one last time. As we tend to our aďŹ&#x20AC;airs, we will be hosting several events over the next few months . . .
