PUBLISHER'S PICKS

S D BW EV ENTS Each year, San Diego Beer Week arrives and rains down a myriad of events. Like a Vegas buffet, planning and strategy are key. Otherwise, you’ll end up asleep somewhere and missing out on the fun. This list is subjective. I focused on events that have uncommon beers and especially beers from out of San Diego. I also really want to check out some of the newest beers/breweries/spots in town. In other words, I’m fixing to learn what’s up on the cutting edge of San Diego beer and tasting the best that America’s Finest Beer City/County can produce. My sources: our WC online beer event calendar at westcoastersd.com, Beer Week’s official website SDBW.org and our generous advertisers (make sure to check out the ads in this issue, for there are plenty of amazing happenings in there). San Diego’s finest are also avid local beer fans and well aware of San Diego Beer Week. Don’t be a drunk driving dickhead, use your phone to talk to space and summon a Lyft or Uber. Uber lets you split fares now so you can break up the fare with the squad. I only regret that I have but one liver to lose for my county. -Jerry Sanders

F R IDAY, N O V E M B E R 6T H + VIP GUILDFEST Verily, this event’s grown a bit since it’s cozy inception in 2013. That said, I’m expecting a state-of-the-union for how SD beer is tasting while enjoying a sunset on the water. Details are slim as to who is pouring what exactly, but there will be unlimited food, beer and access to local brewing community folks. If you’re attending both days, I recommend hunting the whales during the VIP. See below for my tip on the 2nd day.

+ AMPLIFIED ALE WORKS 3-YEAR ANNIVERSARY There’s a growing number of adults in Pacific Beach who choose local beer over vodka slushies and our resident brewery is Amplified. Cy Henley makes amazing beers out of his seaside brewhouse, the biergarten patio overlooks the ocean and the food is amazing. When people ask me why I moved from North/South Park to PB, I take them here (then Crushed, TapRoom and Iron Pig afterwards if it’s one of those nights).

S AT U R DAY, N O V E M B E R 7T H + S A N D I E G O B R E W E R S G U I L D F E S T I VA L I will most likely be slightly woozy from the previous evening, but nothing will keep me from this festival. That's because this festival is awesome. While there won’t be unlimited food, there will be even more beer and friends present, and I can get a better view of the boats floating around the bay during the day. West Coaster will have a booth with cool SDBW 2015 t-shirts, too. You can say hi to myself and Co-Founder Ryan. If you do, bring treats. The general Saturday Guildfest session is a great time to check out just-opened breweries, as this is their first-ever Guild Fest

Continued on p.4


and they’re going to want to impress. As of late October, brand new breweries that opened this year are: Abnormal, Bay City, Division 23, Duck Foot, Guadalupe, Half Door, Helix, Home, Kilowatt, Magnetic, Novo Brazil, Pacific Islander, Prodigy, Second Chance and South Park. Be gentle with your Untappd ratings; remember all breweries were once baby breweries :)

+ BARREL-AGED RARE BEER NIGHT @ PIZZA PORT OCEAN BEACH I’ve never been to Pizza Port Ocean Beach and left disappointed with the offerings brewed on site. Nacho & the brewing team create awesome beer that won’t stop winning awards, so I’m going to hunt some barrel aged whales from OB and the rest of the Pizza Port empire this evening. If I’m able, I hope to sample some of the other beers from other breweries that they’ll have on tap as well. I fully expect to make some lame Captain Ahab / Moby Dick / whalezbro jokes while doing this. Did you know Pizza Port makes pizza, too?

S U N DAY, NOV EM BER 8 TH + B A J A B E E R S @ B OT T L E C R A F T L I T T L E I TA LY I was going to type some remark bemoaning the old Bottlecraft, but then I remembered the old location sucked compared to the new one. This will be the first Beer Week for Bottlecraft Little Italy 2.0, and Baja breweries are ON FIRE right now. While I couldn’t get a hold of the tap list for this event, based on the above facts I know Bottlecraft will put on a good event. Ballast Point Little Italy is a catty-corner away, and they have beer, too.

+ E P I C U R E A N B E E R G E E K T O U R S @ W H I T E L A B S , B R OT H E R S P R O V I S I O N S , S T O N E FA R M S A N D S O C I E T E A new face launching for SDBW, Epicurean San Diego is an outfit that promises beer, food and education while ferrying you to White Labs, Brothers Provisions, Stone Farms and Societe. I don’t get to visit White Labs, Brothers and Societe enough, and I’ve never actually had a beer at Stone Farms. The cost is $115, and if there’s food and beer involved that’s a pretty good price especially since it includes transportation and a meal. Great event for out-of-towners and if Sunday doesn’t work the same tour runs daily November 5th-8th & 12th-15th from 10:30AM-3:45PM.

M O N DAY, NOV EM BER 9 TH + BREWS, VIEWS & CHEWS @ TOM HAM’S LIGHTHOUSE It’s not just about beer, folks. Beer Week brings a lot of stellar foodie events, and this is one of them. Tom Ham’s Lighthouse is an iconic San Diego landmark that underwent a significant remodel and has stepped up their beer program in 2015. This event features six breweries such as Ballast Point, New English and Belching Beaver paired with six plates from the chefs of Soda & Swine, Carnitas Snack Shack and The Little Lion Cafe. Live music and a killer view of my lovely hometown’s downtown seal the deal for me.

+ A B N O R M A L B E E R C O. / C O R K & C R A F T B E E R PA I R I N G D I N N E R F E AT U R I N G M O D E R N T I M E S & A L M A N A C Another equally killer option is up north at Abnormal Beer Com4 | NOVEMBER 2015

pany / Cork & Craft. A proper sit-down beer dinner, this multicourse meal will have beers paired from Modern Times, Almanac and Abnormal paired with the skilled Cork & Craft Kitchen. While I don’t know the particulars of this event, I was lucky enough to attend an outstanding AleSmith beer dinner early in 2015. It’s a safe bet that with months worth of practice this will be worth every penny.

T U E SDAY, N O V E M B E R 10T H + T H E F U L L TA B L E @ B E N C H M A R K B E E R Like most San Diegans, I dig my badass hoppy Single/Double/ Triple/Quadruple IPAs. That said, as my palate evolves (and my liver ages), I find myself appreciating gentler, more subtle beers. Benchmark Brewing Company’s Table Beer is a fine example of what I’m talking about, and this night will feature 12 different variations of the slightly roasty Belgian style ale. This event is a great way to tune your tastebuds. Grab a pint of regular Table for a control beer, and then taste the versions that have been barrelaged or Brettanomyces-innoculated. Check out how changes in ingredients or processes can create such dramatic differences. Within walking distance is the rest of the developing Grantville neighborhood beer cluster which includes Groundswell and San Diego Brewing Co.

W E DN E S DAY, N O V E M B E R 11T H + S O U R TA P TA K E O V E R @ R I P C U R R E N T N O R T H PA R K Unlike most non-brewing satellite tasting rooms, 2015 Great American Beer Festival Very Small Brewery of the Year Rip Current’s North Park location serves guest taps in addition to the beer brewed in the San Marcos production facility. Rip Current has deep connections with local homebrewing club QUAFF (Quality Ale and Fermentation Fraternity). Thus, the staff is pretty enthusiastic about quality brews - even if they don’t brew it themselves. Guest taps will be pouring a tart selection from Almanac, Toolbox, Council, Dogfish Head & more starting at 3PM.

T H U R S DAY, N O V E M B E R 12T H + 7 T H F L I N G W / G R E E N F L A S H @ H A M I LT O N ’ S Like the Hajj, all San Diego beer faithful should attend this event once in their lifetime. The morning starts at Morley Field with a brunch. While you munch, Hamilton’s proprietor Scot Blair and his staff are busy matching up players to create even teams of four. After a brief talk regarding rules, the shotgun disc golf tournament starts. Disc golf is the de-facto sport of San Diego Beer, and expect several brewers to be in attendance. While all skill levels are welcome and the fun level is high, there is stiff competition. Camaraderie and silliness are expected by all attending. Winners get to tap the cask at the afterparty which takes place at Hamilton’s. The afterparty is closed to non-Flingers, boasts lunch and a hosted bar until 3PM (when Hamilton’s normally opens).

+ CRAFT BEER + BITES @ SILO Maker’s Quarter is a slick venue located right off where the 94 freeway ends. $35-$40 ticket gets you unlimited tastings of beer


F R I D AY, NOV EM BER 1 3 TH + BEER WITHOUT BORDERS @ MACHETE BEER HOUSE As I mentioned, the Mexican craft brewers are doing some great stuff. It’s much easier to get to National City than Tijuana, and Machete is one of the bright stars of the growing South Bay beer scene. All 30 taps will be taken over by breweries such as Insurgente, Agua Mala, Border Psycho and Wendlandt. For those lucky enough to have a designated driver, don’t forget to check out La Bella Pizza, Manhattan Bar and Third Street Ale House while you’re in the area to understand #SouthBayUprising.

2016 // STONE

from 15 breweries, with food, craft cocktails and wine available for purchase. Proceeds benefit the San Diego Brewers Guild, and this event is also a graduation celebration for the recent batch of students from the San Diego State Business of Craft Beer Program. Across the street is Monkey Paw and both Half Door and Mission are within walking distance (along with the rest of downtown).

CELEBRATION

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 31 | 8PM - 1AM

Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens

LIBERTY STATION

+ B AT T L E O F T H E G U I L D S @ T O R O N A D O This event ruled last year. Try beer from the greater Los Angeles and San Francisco first. Breweries that will be included from LA: Three Weavers, Beachwood, Ladyface, Monkish, Phantom Carriage + more. From the Bay Area: Magnolia, Cellarmaker, Thirsty Bear + more. Last year had lots of brewers in attendance from San Diego, Los Angeles and San Francisco; this is a good event to mingle! Stop in early if you’re looking for the rarer beers, or pop in while roaming 30th. Don’t forget to cast your vote for San Diego!

Sure, everyone has New Year’s Eve parties, but how many of them have rare and vintage Stone beers? Come celebrate with us and enjoy food, live music, craft beer, wine, a live DJ and dancing!

S AT U R D AY, NOV EM B E R 1 4 TH + THREE AMIGOS @ O’BRIEN’S PUB Former Pizza Port brewers Tom Nickel, Jeff Bagby and Tomme Arthur have each staked their own claims at Nickel Brewing Co., Bagby Beer Co., and Lost Abbey, respectively. An event with these three dudes present is a treat. If you wanted a chance to hang out with the best of the business while tasting some insane beer, this is it. Early afternoon is probably the best time to hit this event up. O’Brien’s is within the Kearny Mesa brewery cluster, which means Societe, Council, Kilowatt and Helm’s are all within striking distance. For food, across the street are two cool new beer pubs Common Theory and Dumpling Inn.

CRAFT BEER

EPIC FOOD

S U N DAY, NOV EM BER 1 5 TH + T H E B E E R G A R D E N AT T H E L O D G E AT T O R R E Y P I N E S Located on the grounds of the 5-star Lodge at Torrey Pines, the endpiece event of San Diego Beer Week is not to be missed. Gaze upon the majesty of the Torrey Pines golf course and the Pacific Ocean while stuffing your unmajestic, BeerWeek weary maw with unlimited, expertly matched food & beer pairings. This last official San Diego Brewers Guild event of the year explains to all senses why San Diego is awesome. •

BALLAST POINT GOING PUBLIC

In addition to the news that the local brewing company is working on a tasting room in Temecula, in October San Diegans learned that Ballast Point will soon be going public with an IPO valued at $172.5 million. On October 19 the company filed an S-1 form with the Securities and Exchange Commission; this is the first step in the process. In that public form, which you can view at https://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/ data/1648798/000119312515346618/ d87353ds1.htm, lots of company details are revealed. For example, Sculpin IPA and Grapefruit Sculpin IPA represent more

than half of their sales, and net revenue will likely double in 2015: in the first six months of this year, it stands at $51.7 million, whereas 2014 on the whole was $48.9M. While West Coaster is excited that eager drinkers will be able to invest in the business within the next couple of months, we hope that the quality of their products remains high as big-time outside shareholders will expect profitability quarter after quarter.

BIG BEER MERGER It’s been culminating for some time, but this past month SAB Miller agreed to a $100+ billion merger with Anheuser-Busch

InBev. The news came on the heels of a Reuters report that AB InBev is being investigated by the U.S. Department of Justice and the California Attorney General as they buy up distributors around the country, including two in California recently. This led the California Craft Brewers Association to issue a statement, saying that the above developments “have given rise to questions about the company’s long-term intentions.” Executive director Tom McCormick continued: “This has caused concern among our members. At the very least, it establishes the critical need to preserve self-distribution for small brewers and demonstrates the need to preserve and protect a fair and equal marketplace. The CCBA has been and will continue to be involved in this C O N T I N U E D O N P. 1 1

In 2014,

this volunteer-produced event hosted approximately 18,000 attendees for a good cause: proceeds went to McKinley Elementary School’s arts, music and Spanish programs. 38 restaurants participated in the #chilismackdown with Small Bar taking the title of Best Overall for their short rib chili with mild heat. Kensington Cafe’s vegan chili won for Best Vegetarian, Waypoint Public was voted Most Unique thanks to its use of house-made chorizo and brisket, smoked porter and charred jalapeño crema, and Carnitas’ Snack Shack was The People’s Choice. Their chili featured Smokehouse Kings’ smoked brisket, prime ribeye steak, plus pinto and kidney beans. This year, 40 local eateries vie for accolades alongside a beer garden of 18 breweries ($5/pour). $20 gets you five chili tastes and a keeper bowl -- while they last -- made by San Diego Ceramic Connection, whose owner Kouta Shimazaki founded the SoNo Fest in 2009. The SoNo name comes from a blend of South Park and North Park.

M O T H E R E A RT H B U I L D I N G S E CO N D B R E W E RY I N I DA H O BY BRANDON HERNÁNDEZ

There are few San Diego County businesses viewed to be as locally focused and engrained in their community’s fibrous being as Mother Earth Brew Co. This family-run operation started as a tiny nano-sized brewery and homebrew supply store in a single business suite measuring just over 2,000 square feet. It has since taken over most of its home-base business park, moved the recreational retail component to a large combo homebrew store and bar in the heart of Vista’s old town area, grown into a “mid-sized brewery” (per classification of industry group, the Brewers Association) with a staff of nearly 50 employees, and upped distribution to seven states. All that without leaving what has become one of the county’s densest municipalities, brewery-wise (with 11 operating brewhouses, it’s second only to the City of San Diego). But the next step in Mother Earth’s evolution will take it far from Vista—namely… Idaho? MEBC chief branding officer Kevin Hopkins reports that the company is building a second, much larger brewery in Nampa, about 20 miles west of Boise. At first, it may seem a bit of an odd choice, constructing a second production facility so far from home, and in a part of the country that lacks a craft beer culture as defined as San Diego’s. But the decision falls in line with Mother Earth’s geographically strategic growth plan, which sees the company attempting to build out across the

14 | NOVEMBER 2015

country in a regional manner. Idaho presents a cost-effective option with the potential for increased distribution to the Pacific Northwest and various markets where MEBC beer is not currently sold west of the Mississippi. The Nampa facility will come in at 40,000 square feet and include room and options for expansion. A four-vessel, 40-barel Mueller brewing system will also be configured for addons, as needed. There will also be a public tasting room and corporate office space. Adding the second brewery should allow MEBC to double its current beer barrelage. Initially, Nampa production should mirror that of Vista—which will support distribution throughout California, Arizona and Hawaii, with remaining markets being supplied by the new brewery—but should demand justify it, the Idaho facility can ramp up so that total annual totals exceed 100,000 barrels. Mother Earth founder and CEO Dan Love and head brewer Chris Baker will relocate to Nampa to head the new project. Back in Vista, expansion will continue until maximum capacity is reached. Hopkins estimates that will occur sometime next year. Items on the nearer horizon for the company include the release of several limitededition beers, including a barrel-aged Belgian-style quadrupel and barrel-aged version of MEBC’s Sin Tax imperial peanut butter stout for the autumn and winter editions of its Four Seasons of Mother Earth line, plus the return of a Russian imperial stout called Quit Stalin during San Diego Beer Week. •

n early October, a group of Pink Boots Members and affiliates embarked upon a nine-day tour of Bavaria in southeastern Germany, with sponsorship by Samuel Adams, Sierra Nevada, Lagunitas Brewing Company, Stone Brewing Company, Bavarian Private Brewers Association, and the Brewers Association of Upper Franconia. Organized by Tom Conrad of Treasures of Europe Tours with help from Pink Boots, this was a tour de force focusing on small breweries with the goal to educate women craft professionals on Bavaria’s beerscape. Bavaria has the highest concentration of breweries in Germany, accounting for almost half of Germany’s approximately 1,300 breweries. In total we toured 17 breweries, most with brew houses in the 15-20 barrel range with some exceptions. While this is a small sampling of breweries in Bavaria, the tour offered a portal into the changing beer scene in the region, which is experiencing a slow shift from established traditions to the introduction of craft styles and brewing practices.

chance to test my palate and detect the nuanced subtleties of flavor resulting from playing with a traditional style through recipe tweaks rather than complete overhauls.

To say that Bavarian brewing is steeped in tradition is a gross understatement. Visiting breweries that have existed for hundreds of years, sampling recipes that have been handed down from generation to generation, and meeting brewers who literally have brewing in their blood is an incredibly humbling experience. As I met men and women who grew up in their parents’ breweries, and then began brewing themselves, my paltry four years in this industry seemed like nothing. As a result of this generational approach to brewing, change in the region is slow, and respect for tradition is obvious in the beers being produced. Bavarian brewers have been crafting beers under the Reinheitsgebot, or German Beer Purity Law, for almost 500 years now, since 1516. At a basic level, the law stipulates that only certain brewing practices are allowed, and limits beer ingredients to barley, hops, water, and yeast. While additions and complexities have been introduced to the law in subsequent years (such as the use of wheat), at its core the Reinheitsgebot and the loyalty it inspires in many of the brewers we met is a reflection of the region’s respect for tradition.

Behind these beers stand a group of brewers who are operating in a rapidly shifting commercial landscape as cheap, mass-produced beer floods the markets in an attempt to drive smaller competitors out of business. There is barely room on the shelves for small brewers’ more traditional beer styles, much less for craft styles that Bavarian consumers are slow to adopt. The result is a focus on hyper-local markets, and a reliance on customers’ nostalgia about particular brands as well as love for ‘slow’ and locally-crafted products, for which they will pay a premium.

And yet, some brewers are starting to tweak old recipes and venture into what they term ‘craft bier’ that still stays true to the Reinheitsgebot. The resulting beers are a fascinating blend of traditional styles with hesitant but enticing hop and malt flavor profiles that shine due to the subtlety of the taste, rather than boasting in-your-face flavors. From exploring beer in San Diego as well as the larger American craft scene, I’ve gotten used to the boldness that characterizes what we consider craft. But Bavarian craft beer offerings gave something completely different: a

At Brauerie im Eiswerk in Munich, a nano brand that represents the craft arm of Paulaner, we tried a Weizenbock dry hopped with Mandarina Bavaria. The traditional strong banana and clove nose of a Bavarian Weizenbock was gently penetrated by a mellow mango, hinting at flavor to come. One swallow of the highly carbonated, richly bodied beer, and I was in heaven, as the Mandarina Bavaria hops played perfectly with the malt backbone and yeasty character of the beer. At Meinel-Bräu in Hof we sampled a fresh-hopped Imperial Pilsner. At 5.3% with fresh Spalter Select hops and 100% Pilsner malt, this beer was on the hoppier end of what we tried during our tour, and yet was still restrained enough to let the underlying Pilsner honey flavors and nose shine. Layered onto the malt flavors were gentle notes of elderflower, strawberry, and grass that didn't overwhelm the palate or scream ‘wet hopped!’.

Perhaps the most extreme example of hyper-localism was a visit to a traditional Zoigl Stube room in Falkenberg, a brewing custom centuries old when the right to brew in Germany was given to one house in a community. The result is a communal brewhouse where a handful of brewers take turns. Each unique batch is then served at the brewer’s family house for five to six weeks, and the family hangs the Zoigl star on the side of the house so locals will know when and where the beer is available. It doesn't get any more traditional, or awesome, than sitting in the Stube with locals, enjoying a half liter of Zoigl, and listening to accordion music while munching on a pretzel. Another example of the locally-driven market comes from Friedmann Brewery in Gräfenberg, where we met owners and brewmasters Barbara Friedmann and her mother Siggi Friedmann. While Siggi was reluctant to enter the brewing business, which was at the time exclusively a man’s world in Bavaria, she ended up inheriting the brewery from her father after he went over her head to enroll her in a brewing degree program. Today she and her daughter produce

six core traditional beers and no craft styles: a Landbier, Pilsner, Dunkel, Lager, Weisse, and Festbier. The beers are distributed locally, but most sales come from their tavern and biergarten as well as customers dropping off empty bottle cases and picking up new ones directly at the brewery. Other brewers are enthusiastically embracing both the old and the new. Brewmaster sisters Moni and Gisi MeinelHansen of Meinel-Bräu in Hof are 11th generation brewers carrying on the Meinel traditional family recipes of Lager, Pilsner, Marzen, Hefewiezen, Dunkel, Weizenbock, and Dopplebock. But they have also launched a new line of beers called Holla die Bierfee, a collaboration line of beers with two other female brewers meant to cater to women’s tastes. The line is doing very well, often selling out within weeks of each new release. We tried their most recent offering, a Spelt Pale Ale fermented with a traditional house strain as well as white wine yeast. The slight spiciness of the spelt balanced perfectly with the fruity esters of the yeasts and light hop aromas. On the supply side, we visited Stanglmair Farm and Hops Field in Hallertau hosted by Stefan Stanglmair as well as Jennifer Glanville of Samuel Adams. The farm has been around for centuries, growing and improving with each generation. But recently Stefan has implemented sweeping changes to cater to new hop demands and varieties including Hallertau Melon and Monroe. They are even going

so far as working closely with Samuel Adams to determine optimal hop picking times – up to two weeks later than ‘peak’ times – as well as a packaging technique to ensure as much of the hop as possible is pelletized. One of the last breweries we visited was on the opposite spectrum of tradition. Operating a nano system out of his garage, Brewmaster David Hertl of Braumanufaktur Hertl in Schlüsselfeld showed us around his micro operation, which focuses almost exclusively on craft styles and experimentation. We got to sample an IPA as well as a beerwine hybrid he was working on. As much as his beers are off the beaten path for Bavarians, he too is following the “stay local” model by developing a fierce following within the town. Our tour guide, Tom, made an astute observation at the beginning of the trip. It is easy to imagine your own local cosmos is the center of the beer universe. For me that is San Diego, where creativity and surprise are often prized above all else. Traveling through Bavaria and experiencing beer recipes older than my grandparents made me ponder what allows a beer style to have longevity. What do we lose in chasing the new, the next, the craziest flavor, the highest alpha acid? What can we find in subtlety, balance, and steadiness? The tour was an opportunity to immerse ourselves in a completely different brewing world, with a unique outlook on the role beer plays in day-to-day life, as a cornerstone in the background. Bavaria, I’ll be back.

WHAT LIES BEYOND THE RED DOOR BY BRANDO N HE RNÁ ND E Z

This time of year is about giving thanks. I’m giving thanks that one of my favorite restaurants is providing local brewers great opportunities for showcasing their beers as vehicles for pairing top-level cuisine built on edibles procured from local purveyors. That eatery is Mission Hills’ The Red Door, a cozy, home-style hub for edibles grown and crafted throughout San Diego County. Always rather wine-centric (not that there’s anything wrong with that), I’ve longed for beer dinners to become part of their regiment, and thankfully it has as part of special Farmers, Friends and Fishermen collaboration dinners. Count local brewers among the “friends” in these quarterly feasts. The last one, which took place in summer, incorporated the beers of URBN St. Brewing Co. (which, I hear through the hop bine, will soon change its name to URBN Brewing Co.), which brewmaster Callaway Ryan delivered first-hand in freshly-filled growlers from his El Cajon brewpub. Of his five ales, Jumbo double India pale ale was paired with chilled cucumber-lime gazpacho with uni and shrimp caught fresh by Catalina Offshore Products, and the simply-named St. Brown Ale accompanied roasted pig slowcooked in URBN St.’s Bravecourt Stout. We started with a light summery dish so we went with the cucumber soup with a hint of spice. The URBN IPA had a lemony aroma, carbonation and hoppiness, perfect to cool down both the spice of the cucumber soup and pair with the shrimp, but not overwhelm the overall delicateness of the dish,” says The Red Door owner Trish Watlington. “We roasted our pig with traditional flavors and so it paired great with the URBN beer. Its spicy, earthy bitterness was perfect to cut through the fat of the pork.” It was a highly successful meal served mostly to individuals that had never heard of URBN St. and, for the most part, weren’t big

into the local beer scene. Don’t count The Red Door’s kitchen leader among those unfamiliar with the wealth of ales and lagers in his backyard. “I’ve seen the local beer scene evolve into something great, like a fine wine for San Diego,” says executive chef Miguel Valdez. “Every day, we have the opportunity to keep pushing the boundaries in what we do and local beer is one of those boundary-pushing things.” Valdez counts URBN St. Saison as one of his favorite local beers. It would appear his palate matches those of judges at the Great American Beer Festival, where that beer took home a medal as one of the top three Belgian-style farmhouse ales in the country. So, you know you can trust his instincts on local beer, but further proof is provided by expert pairings that accentuate the roastiness of a dark beer, grassiness of a hoppy ale or the floral spiciness of the aforementioned saison. Valdez sees the almost endless possibilities beer presents for just about anything, food-wise. “Beer is great with beef, pork or poultry as well as a variety of vegetables. I like to slow-cook or braise with it. I also like to use fresh herbs, especially thyme, rosemary and sage with beer. You can make an amazing pork shoulder with a slow cooker, a few herbs and a great stout.” While he’s a bit mum on that braised swine recipe, The Red Door is offering up a pair of recipes—some crispy, delicious fried zucchini blossoms stuffed with a mixture of mascarpone and goat cheese, plus a wintry salad incorporating Tuscan kale, butternut squash, quinoa, cranberries and pine nuts. The next Farmers, Friends and Fishermen event will take place on


CHEFS TIP:

• 1 tsp salt

Miguel Valdez, The Red Door Restaurant

Always start with a beer you like. If you don’t want to drink it, you won’t like it in your cooked food.

• 2 bunches (about 1 pound) Tuscan kale, ribs and stems removed, julienne • 1 cup quinoa, cooked and chilled • 1 cup butternut squash, cubed and roasted • 2 Tbsp pine nuts, lightly toasted • Parmesano-Reggiano cheese, shaved Place the cranberries in a small bowl. Add 5 tablespoons of the balsamic vinegar, cover and let soak overnight.

Drain the cranberries and set aside. Whisk the remaining balsamic vinegar, rice wine vinegar, honey, oil and salt in a large bowl. Add the kale, quinoa, squash, pine nuts and cranberries and toss to coat. Let stand for 20 minutes at room temperature, tossing occasionally. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer to a serving platter, garnish with cheese and serve.

Those honey wines will be provided by Oceanside’s Golden Coast Mead and be paired with four courses incorporating ingredients from Be Wise Ranch, Blue Sky Ranch and Pacific Micro Farms, among others. The night will kick off with cocktails and appetizers at 5:30 p.m. followed by dinner. Tickets are available on brownpapertickets.com. “We love our local organic farmers, ranchers and sustainable fishermen. They work ridiculously hard to barely get by and we firmly believe it’s our obligation to support them and to encourage others to do the same,” says Watlington. “Our vision for these dinners and The Red Door as a restaurant is to create a cuisine that helps guests connect with local, ethical producers, and build sound ecological relationships with the land and sea.” And as for fermenter-to-glass relationships, Valdez adds, “I love that we have such an extensive local brewing scene because I have loads of choices for beers to drink, beers to pair and beers to cook with.”

COVER STORY

Paging Paige CATCHING UP WITH SAN DIEGO BREWERS GUILD’S EXECUTIVE ADMINISTRATOR

A

s the point person for nearly all things guild-related, Paige McWey’s job gets more complicated by the day in this rapidly-growing industry. But she’s taking it in stride, building partnerships and projects to help spread the word about our Capital of Craft.

SO ONE OF THE BIG QUESTIONS FOR THE GUILD IS ABOUT SAINT ARCHER. ARE THEY STILL A MEMBER BREWERY? No. A couple of weeks after news broke we had a scheduled executive board meeting where our board's officers and directors discussed the issue for over an hour and reviewed our by-laws with our General Counsel. We also reached out to the Brewers Association and to the California Craft Brewers Association as organizations we look up to, to see how they were handling these types of business transactions. We did our due diligence, especially since this could theoretically happen more than once. At the following executive board meeting, the board continued to review the by-laws and decided at that time to remove Saint Archer from guild membership because they no longer meet the brewery member qualifications set forth in our bylaws. Specifically, the majority interest in the company has to be an independent entity. So while they're still employing San Diegans and they've done great things here, it goes back to independent ownership.

Photo by Kristina Ya m a m o t o a t K a r l S t r a u s s H Q ’s S p e a k e a s y.

YOU ARE EMPLOYED BY BOTH KARL STRAUSS AND THE GUILD. HOW DOES THAT WORK? The position I now have at the guild didn't exist before, and at that time the guild's president was Brian Scott, who worked at Karl Strauss. So I was interviewed by Matt Ratner, who has been on the guild board for many years, for a position with Karl Strauss, and by Brian Scott for the position with the guild. I joined Karl Strauss in May 2013 and we did the full culture training including a brew-along. About a week later I started working for the guild, in the Karl Strauss Pacific Beach offices. I haven't had any issues with people wondering if there's a bias there. In my guild duties I work 1-on-1 with the brewers, and while in the Karl Strauss offices we're all talking about the different events we're going to over the weekend, and other projects we have going on. So there aren't any issues there; I wouldn't want to be in an office by myself anyways.

IS THE DROUGHT A MAJOR ISSUE FOR BREWERIES? We did some research on our brewers' water usage and it WESTCOASTERSD.COM | 25


turned out to be less than .1% of San Diego's total water usage. We took the statistics that come from the Brewers Association on local breweries’ barrelage, and then contacted the San Diego Water Authority. Even with varying levels of brewery efficiency, we're well under 1%. Our partnership with the Water Authority has been great. They've helped educate our breweries and their staff through seminars on proper water usage and how they can recycle more water. They know that water cuts or price increases would really affect our industry.

WHAT IS YOUR DAY-TO-DAY LIKE? The work with the guild ebbs and flows. So much of what I do with the guild is related to events, both public and private. Recently we held an economic and tourism summit at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina on Shelter Island to encourage local media, politicians, hoteliers, restauranteurs and industry members to really get behind Beer Week. We've also had other meetings, like with the California ABC, recently. Our public event calendar is fuller than ever before with our spring Rhythm & Brews, a golf tournament in the fall, San Diego Beer Week and our Guild Festival. And in between those evens, we have monthly Board of Director meetings and three General Meetings for our members. But when it's slow with the guild, which doesn't really happen that often these days, I'll work with different departments here at Karl Strauss. Usually I'll help with events because that's in my wheelhouse.

SPEAKING OF GUILD EVENTS, WILL YOU HAVE ANOTHER JOB FAIR? Definitely. The first job fair in September was a lot bigger and more successful than we imagined, especially with the crazy heat that day. We had 1,100 people RSVP and 550 people attend. We partnered with SDSU and UCSD's brewing programs, and we'll have to look at our schedules for 2016, but I'd like to have two job fairs per year. One in the spring to coincide with their graduations, and another in the fall.

WHAT ARE YOUR BIG GUILD PROJECTS? Working towards maintaining that Capital of Craft status, definitely. Last year we did a major rebrand of the guild and Beer Week, as well as a complete re-do of the guild map. We've also discussed briefly the idea of regional labeling - having some sort of 'Made in San Diego' or 'Capital of Craft' sticker bug to help build the SD Beer brand even more. And for the last two years we've had a PR firm to help spread the word. This year we're working with Bay Bird Inc. We try to do a lot of local stories since there are still so many people who don't know that they're living in the capital of craft beer. Bay Bird also helps us get stories in the Asian and European markets, which is fun to see, since we're looking to generate more and more tourism revenue through beer. I've also been working on partnerships with entities like the California Craft Brewers Association, the Sacramento office of the ABC, the San Diego Tourism Authority, and the San Diego County Hotel-Motel Association. Those relationships are really beneficial to the local industry. And for Beer Week, we’re doing another Battle of the Guilds at Toronado on November 13. You can expect a line out the door, but inside there’ll be amazing beers from San Diego, Los Angeles and San Francisco breweries. •

he chalkboard tap list at the Perrault Farms experimental brewery in Toppenish, Washington is a portal into the future of hop aroma. Hops featured here in pilot batches are likely to wind up in beers across the world in a couple of years. The Perraults are part owners of the Hop Breeding Company, a partnership between John I. Haas and Select Botanicals Group, which is responsible for many of the new hops coming out of American farms these days. Aroma powerhouses like Simcoe, Citra, Mosaic, and Equinox all hail from HBC test yards in the Yakima Valley. Further down the valley, Hopsteiner has their own breeding program, which has produced recent hits like Lemondrop, Calypso, and Eureka. In nearby Moxee, Roy Farms has their own test plot for the American Dwarf Hop Association, which has recently released the standout aroma hops Azacca and Jarrylo. In addition to these private programs, the USDA has released many of the varieties that we know today from public university programs in Oregon and Washington. These include classics like Cascade, Chinook, and Willamette, as well as new varieties Tahoma, Yakima Gold, and Cashmere, which were more recently developed at Washington State University. While classic European varieties like Tettnager, Saaz, and Goldings predate modern hop breeding, most of the hops we use today are the result of the time-intensive process of crossbreeding existing varieties to come up with new ones.

Hop plants being fed into a hop harvest at Perrault Farms

of these techniques mixed wild North American with cultivated European hops in an attempt to get the best that each had to offer: higher bittering potential in the former, and desirable aroma in the latter. This has continued for almost a century, leading to the cornucopia of hop varieties that we enjoy today. New hop varieties typically spend a decade or more in a breeding program before they are grown for commercial sale. Selecting new crosses begins with agronomic considerations – disease resistance and yield being of supreme importance. For example, downy and powdery mildew resistance is desirable because these diseases have a devastating effect on crop yields. How many pounds of cones a hop plant will yield per acre is also very important because a new variety has to yield a high enough amount to be commercially viable. As demand for hops increases, it becomes even more imperative that farmers are able to maximize the output of their hop yards. Older, poorer yielding varieties will likely continue to be phased out in order to move in higher-yielding varieties that are better able to meet market demands. Hop yards require expensive trellis infrastructure to train the hop bines as they grow, and installing new yards is expensive compared to maximizing existing yards. In addition, hops in Yakima have to compete with expensive fruit like blueberries for farmable land. If farmers can make more money growing something else, they oftentimes will. Developing better-yielding new varieties will allow farmers to supply more hops at a sustainable price to the brew-


ing industry. If brewers continue to demand older poorer-yielding varieties like Willamette, they will have to be willing to pay a premium to incentivize farmers to keep the plants in the ground.

The beer list at Perrault Farms featuring cutting-edge hops

Another agronomical consideration is harvest window. During harvest, a farm has to pass all of its hops through picking, drying, and baling infrastructure. If all of the hop varieties on a farm ripen at exactly the same time, the farm cannot pick and process them all while they are at optimal ripeness. Developing new varieties that ripen at differing times during harvest allows farmers to evenly spread out the harvest and get all of their hops picked during their optimal windows. After passing agronomic tests, hops are grown on test plots for several more years to assess their alpha acid levels, oil content, stability during storage, and how brewers react to them, both in the field and the pilot brewery. After multiple successful growing seasons, a new hop that is well received by brewers will be expanded to its own yard. After successful full-scale brews and enough brewer interest, it might be lucky enough to get a name – hops are first known by their breeding program number – and be released for full commercial production. Every year during harvest, brewers from around the world visit Yakima to select freshly-harvested hops from the lots of suppliers with whom they have contracts. Selecting lots during harvest ensures that a brewer gets the best hops available that meet their quality standards and fit the profile of their beer. While in Yakima, some brewers also walk the experimental yards for the breeding programs, rubbing and smelling the ripe experimental hops, and hopefully honing in on their favorites. If multiple brewers select a certain hop as being of interest for its aroma, the program will mark it to move on for further testing. Walking the rows of experimental hops this year for the first time, I was fascinated to see how related crosses could all play variations on an aromatic theme. HBC 472 is a very unique and distinctive hop that is gaining traction in the Hop Breeding Company yards. It has a huge coconut and tropical fruit aroma that is unlike any other hop on the market right now. Smelling its related crosses going down the row, there were varying degrees of the same distinctive aroma, but it was clear why this particular plant had been picked out, compared to say, 470 or 474. In other areas of the yard, a huge blueberry, banana, or bubblegum aroma could quickly turn into garlic and onion from one plant to the next. After an hour of smelling dozens of plants, we had a whole wish list of hops that we wanted to see more of in the future. We'd also smelled dozens more that would likely never make it to commercial production for one reason or another.

Back at the Perrault brewery, we tasted HBC 472 featured in a single-hop IPA. That big coconut aroma was in full force. It will be interesting to see how brewers end up best using a hop like that—maybe in a porter or stout? It's clear from all the different and unique directions that new aroma hops are taking that not all will become IPA standards. Softer, more subtle new hops like Steiner's Lemondrop will likely find favor in less hop-dominated styles like wheat beers, lagers, and perhaps saisons. Another big takeaway for me with all of these new distinctive aroma hops is that they won't all be good as single or featured hops—some will end up best as accents used to fill out a complex blend. Perrault also had beers featuring 438 (big pineapple, tropical, and stone fruit) and 291 (floral, citrus, stone fruit), two other hops that I would expect to see more of in the next few years. I know that I can't wait to brew with them! •

“A RISING TIDE” BY GONZALO J. QUINTERO, ED.D.

#southbayuprising

is a hashtag that’s something akin to a rising tide. As the saying goes, a rising tide floats all boats. That is to say, as an environment improves, all will benefit from it. It’s strange to write this, but despite San Diego County being home to over 115 breweries, only a couple are in the South Bay. Moreover, in terms of our broader region, it is Baja California in Mexico that in fact has a better reputation for its beer, beer culture, and World Beer Cup award-winning brewers. Though the South Bay is now on the map, thanks to places such as The Manhattan and Machete, it is but a speck on that map when compared to the rest of the county. I spoke to a couple of folks who I am working alongside, as GM of La Bella Pizza Garden, to change this perception. Say hello to Kendell Manion of Third Ave-

nue Alehouse and Jim Shirey of Bay Bridge Brewing. (Next month we'll speak with even more beer businesses south of the 54).

_______ WC: HOW LONG HAS YOUR BUSINESS BEEN AROUND? 3 A A ( T H I R D A V E N U E A L E H O U S E ) : We started the project in this space in May 2015. (By we Kendell means her partner Michael Stenberg and his parents Melinda and WESTCOASTERSD.COM | 39


Machete Beer House has been a hit with locals and visitors alike

MORE PEOPLE ARE FINDING A REASON TO COME VISIT US WHEN THEY COME TO THE SOUTH BAY. AMAZING PIZZA AND CRAFT BEER, WHAT ELSE COULD YOU WANT?

Stephen Stenberg). We have all been working tirelessly on this project. Michael did the metal work, my father’s construction company Marian Construction was the general contractor. We opened for business on Friday, October 9, 2015.

LBP (LA BELLA PIZZA):

La Bella Pizza Garden opened 60 years ago in October of 1955. Grandma Kitty and Papa Tony came from New York by way of Sicily. Today we are four generations strong and still family-owned and operated.

LBP:

A lot has changed over the years. We still have customers who share stories about how La Bella was the first place where they ever tried spaghetti and pizza. Beer, however, has also always been a part of what we do. In fact, we still have our original liquor license that allows us to sell beer to go and for delivery! We’ve seen an influx of people responding year after year to our craft beer offerings. Craft beer has been a part of what we’ve done here since the 90s; we’ve watched it grow, and have grown along with it.

BBB (BAY BRIDGE B R E W I N G ) : Bay Bridge Brewing first opened in 2006. My partner Doug Chase and I have always been Bay Bridge Brewing, however, we used to be located 3 blocks down the road. We opened the current facility in January of 2010 and opened our doors to the public in 2015.

Third Avenue Alehouse is the most recent addition to #southbayuprising

_______ WC: HOW DID THE COMMUNITY RESPOND? 3 A A : There was a sense of excitement! There were more people than anticipated, and a really nice natural flow of traffic. We popped our doors open at 4pm and stayed open right up until midnight. Grillfellas was on hand to feed everyone; we plan to feature them and other food trucks every week to feed the mix of people we are seeing here at the ale house. A range of people from the neighborhood, older, younger, are walking to the bar from their homes. There’s a real sense of community already; people were running into old friends, catching up. There were friendly faces all around. 40 | NOVEMBER 2015

B B B : Early on, we were distributing and providing all the beer for The Brewhouse at Eastlake. Here’s a bit of trivia, Mission Brewing brewed at our facility in their early days when Ray Astamendi (Co-founder of Fall Brewing) was their head brewer. In 2013 we applied for a permit to open our tasting room. We struggled with governmental bureaucracy, but we ultimately prevailed in July 2015! People come for the beer, listen to live music, watch a ball game, play some corn hole. Those memories and good times stick with them, and that makes them come back to have another beer with us.

_______ WC: WHEN SOMEONE VISITS, HOW DO YOU WANT THEM TO FEEL?


3 A A : First and foremost, we want them to feel welcome and relaxed. For someone new to craft beer, it can be intimidating. We want to be approachable for noobs, exciting for the connoisseur, and a place for everyone in-between. BBB:

We provide traditional style beers that you can no longer find at a lot of places. It is important to have places around town that people don’t have to travel great distances to reach. As important as places like North County and North Park have been to the craft beer community, it’s more important that locals in all areas have a place to call their own. I want people to feel that they have a place nearby where they can have some very fine beers.

LBP:

“La Bella - Where People Meet To Eat.” That’s our tagline, but that’s what we strive to be. We’ve hosted everything from weddings to wakes in our 60 years. We have not changed a thing about the pizza, but always make sure to listen to customer feedback. As the community has shown appreciation for our craft beer offerings, we have been able to provide special events such as featuring a new brewery each month and showcasing rare and impossible to get beers on draft.

_______ WC: WHAT DO YOU WANT TO ACCOMPLISH REGARDING THE #SOUTHBAYUPRISING MOVEMENT THIS YEAR? LBP:

We’ve been a lonely island here in Chula Vista for a long time. With the success of Machete in National City, The Manhattan in West Chula Vista, and the advent of Third Avenue Alehouse as well as Novo Brazil and Bay Bridge Brewing more people are finding a reason to come visit us when they come to the South Bay. Amazing pizza and craft beer, what else could you want?

3 A A : The concept here is coffee shop meets wine bar, but we are a craft beer bar through and through. We built a place in Chula Vista that celebrates San Diego County’s craft beer community while being a part of it. In terms of #southbayuprising it’s about time Chula Vista and the South Bay had a place to call their own ale house; we are excited to be a part of what’s going on with this movement and we are excited to see what’s in store for us all. BBB:

I was glad to see National City’s Machete Beer House coin that hashtag. I feel we have been a part of that movement since 2006. Until recently we were the southernmost brewery in California. It’s important that Chula Vista and the South Bay get recognized for what is being accomplished down here. •
