BREWS IN THE NEWS • San Diegan breweries including Eppig and Societe celebrated International Sour Beer Day on September 9. Upcoming beer-themed holidays include Homebrew Legalization Day (October 14), National American Beer Day (October 27), International Stout Day (November 2), and Learn to Homebrew Day (November 4). • A recently-released 2016 Economic Impact Report from the Brewers Association (BA) showed that craft brewing contributed $67.8 billion to the U.S. economy, a 21.7 percent increase from 2014’s report. The figure is derived from the total impact of beer brewed by craft brewers as it moves through the three-tier system (breweries, wholesalers and retailers), as well as all non-beer products that brewpub restaurants and brewery taprooms sell. Craft brewers were also responsible for more than 456,373 full-time equivalent jobs, a 7.5 percent increase from 2014, with 128,768 jobs directly at breweries and brewpubs, including serving staff at brewpubs. In addition to the national impact, the BA examined output of by state; here are the top 5: California - $7,344,502,000; Pennsylvania - $5,787,811,000; Texas - $4,539,628,000; New York - $3,439,441,000; Florida - $3,074,261,000. • At time of press, 2,239 breweries have adopted the Brewers Association's Independent Craft Brewer Seal since it was debuted over the summer. The BA defines a craft brewer as small, traditional and independent. • The Boy Scouts of America plan to honor Mike Hess of Mike Hess Brewing as the 2017 Good Scout of the Year on Sunday, November 5. Hess participated in Troop 818, before going on to serve as an officer in the Navy and as an Assistant Scoutmaster. Hess' brewery, founded in 2010, is currently transitioning from shrink-sleeve to printed 12 oz cans for eight brands, each requiring a full truckload of cans (1.6 million in total). • Yoga and beer pairings continue to gain popularity across San Diego County; you'll find multiple variations on the theme: Bends and Brews, Hoppy Yoga, Hops & Salutations, Stretch & Sip, The Beer Yogis, and Yoga + Beer.

OCTOBER 2017

• Wet Hop Weekend (September 14 -17) at Kearny Mesa's O'Brien's Pub featured more than 25 beers made with fresh hops from the summer's harvest. O'Brien's owner Tom Nickel also runs Julian's Nickel Beer Co, so several of his wet hop beers made the list. • One of the latest releases from Green Flash is a collaboration with local coffee roaster Mostra Coffee. The bourbon barrel-aged black ale, Lustrous Frumento, featured Costa Rican Caturra and Catuai beans prepared exclusively for this beer. It was sold in early September as part of Green Flash's Barrelmaster Reserve series. • Music and beer connections rock! In addition to House of Blues' Local Brews Local Grooves event in early September, San Diego breweries continue to collaborate with bands and venues: AleSmith with Sublime, Belching Beaver with Deftones, Thorn with The Casbah, and Stone with NOFX. • Costa Rican-based Cerveza Imperial raised more than $10,000 for Surfrider Foundation and Oceanside's California Surf Museum at a fundraiser where four Aaron Chang surfboards commissioned by the brewery were auctioned. • Intergalactic Brewing Company has entered into a licensing agreement with Ted Apollo, an amateur producer of beers, ciders, and meads, that will allow Apollo's new brand Oeuvre Artisan Ales to annually brew 100 to 200 barrels of beer fermented with Brettanomyces at the Miramar facility. • San Diego BeerTalk Radio, a podcast with 130 episodes, is now a part of the Voice of San Diego podcast network. A recent taping, shown here, focused on the saturation of craft beer in San Diego. Check out SDBeerTalk. com for a calendar of where and when shows are being recorded. • According to the Brewers Association (BA), craft brewers donated an estimated $73.4 million to charitable causes in 2016, up from $71 million in 2014. The most recent figure is from the 2016 Brewery

Operations Benchmarking Survey, otherwise known as BOBS, released by the BA in the second quarter of this year. This news, published in the BA's bi-monthly journal The New Brewer, included mention of Beer to the Rescue, a San Diego mission supporting the Lupus Foundation of Southern California via WC Editor-At-Large Brandon Hernández. Beer to the Rescue raised more than $70,000 over the past two years. • Home Brewing Co. (HBC) recently teamed up with Manhattan Bar to create an anniversary beer for the Chula Vista establishment's 60th anniversary. "It tastes like 2007 meets 2017... in a good way," said George Thornton of HBC, describing the West Coast IPA brewed and canned with the assistance of Hoppy Beer Hoppy Life (graphics), Chris Giggles from Mikkeller (logistics), and Bill Warnke from Bitter Brothers (canning line). • Stone Brewing is now being distributed in all 50 states. State distribution expanded in 2017 to include Oklahoma, South Dakota, North Dakota,

Wyoming, Mississippi and culminating with West Virginia via Mountain State Beverage in September. Stone Brewing is available in 35 countries, plus Puerto Rico. • San Diego is now home to 156 active breweries. Recent additions include Wild Barrel Brewing (San Marcos), Deft Brewing (Bay Park), Horus Aged Ales (Oceanside), and Northern Pine (Oceanside). So far in 2017, 31 breweries have come online, while there are at least 12 breweries currently in the planning or construction stages, such as the long-awaited, 25,000 square foot Depot Springs brewery and restaurant in La Mesa. To stay up-to-date with the list, please visit WestCoasterSD.com/SD-BrewingIndustry-Watch. • Home Brew Mart celebrated 25 years in business in September. Long before Ballast Point became a billion-dollar business, the Linda Vista homebrew shop helped spark a multitude of local brewing careers.

S HA K EU PS FO R LITTLE MISS B REWI NG By Brandon Hernández

E

arlier this month a for-lease sign went up beside the signage for Little Miss Brewing’s much-anticipated tasting room on Ocean Beach’s Newport Avenue. The conversion of the site’s interior into a French World War IIthemed sampling space is roughly halfway complete and the company’s logo has been mounted outside, making this an unexpected turn of events for everyone, including owners Greg and Jade Malkin. The marrieds behind this Miramar-based company’s satellite project have been paying rent on the space since last December and, in the time it has taken to attempt to obtain approval from the local faction of the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC), have opened another tasting room in Normal Heights. But the ABC process for their would-be OB interest has been nothing short of bureaucratic nightmare. The Malkins submitted their ABC application for the OB tasting room a week after sending the same paperwork for the Normal Heights project. Early on, things went as expected, including receipt of protests during the 30-day period when residents are allowed to formally raise issues. The majority of the protests were rescinded once the Malkins reached out to the individuals who had initiated them. What the Malkins were unaware of, however, is that a private meeting had been held without their notification or knowledge in late-April—outside of the public-protest period—between ABC supervisors, representatives of the San Diego Police Department (SDPD), a State Assembly member and additional OB residents not in favor of the tasting room. ABC representatives claimed the meeting was not specifically about Little Miss, but rather all tasting-room licenses pending on Newport Avenue, but Little Miss’ was the only license of that type pending at the time. The negatives that came out of that meeting, where the project was scrutinized without the applicants being able to defend their business, followed the Little Miss project file through its lifespan without the Malkins even knowing. But this constitutes only a portion of the obstacles.

OCTOBER 2017

While the Malkins respect the job and authority of the ABC and appreciate the hard-working nature of ABC employees, they echo the opinion of most (including ABC employees) that the department and its local offices are severely understaffed during this time of unprecedented brewery openings. During the many months they spent trying to open the OB tasting room, meetings with ABC agents typically yielded little in the way of concrete answers or reliable advice. Often, one agent would contradict the other. In the cases where they agreed, other governmental factions saw things differently. Additionally, the Malkins were told to call ABC reps at different offices as well as various individuals at the City of San Diego offices and SDPD. Most calls went unanswered, as did requests for information. The key piece of info they coveted during the process were crime logs. During a meeting with the ABC on July 20, the Malkins were shown a letter from the SDPD dated June 29 stating it would not support the issuance of Little Miss’ OB license. The reason: the neighborhoods the Western Patrol Division serves (Ocean Beach, Hillcrest, La Playa, Linda Vista, Loma Portal, Midtown, Midway District, Mission Hills, Mission Valley West, Morena, Old Town, Point Loma Heights, Roseville-Fleetridge, Sunset Cliffs, University Heights and “Wooded Area”) had experienced an overall increase in crime and could not handle another ABC license issued in the area. The ABC said they would not go against the SDPD’s recommendation because they felt it was impossible to change their opinion. Determined to give that a try on their own, the Malkins asked to see the crime reports for the aforementioned communities. The ABC had those reports, but said they were not allowed to provide them to the Malkins, and directed them to obtain the data from the City. They attempted to do so, but after more unanswered calls, ended up downloading the information they needed from the City of San Diego’s website instead. Through this fact-finding exercise, they discovered that, although alcoholrelated crime had gone up in the Western Patrol Division’s patrol area as a


whole, it had gone down in OB by a whopping 40% since the November 2014 introduction of the neighborhood’s first brewery tasting room— Culture Brewing Company on Newport Avenue. Also, the number-one alcohol-related crime in OB is open-container violations, primarily on the beach. They presented this information to multiple City Councilmembers, the Mayor’s office and ABC, even going so far as to waive Little Miss’ ability to sell packaged beer or growlers to go, but never received an answer. The final straw was a call earlier this summer when the Malkins say it seemed like someone at the ABC had decided they were going to deny the license long ago—possibly as far back as the meeting that they weren’t given the opportunity to attend—but nobody wanted to be the bearer of bad news. It prompted them to officially pull the plug on the OB project.

hop (SMASH) beers. While quality was never an issue and ownership appreciated Lisica and his beers, their vision for Little Miss’ portfolio was vastly different, leading to an amicable parting of ways. Mike Morbitzer, a fellow Green Flash alum Lisica hired as his assistant, has been promoted to brewmaster and will be responsible for reshaping Little Miss’ offerings to match the Malkin’s desires, which includes more new-school beers such as hazy IPAs and beers brewed with fruits and other adjuncts across varying styles. Meanwhile, Lisica is taking a brief hiatus from the industry to contemplate his next move, while entertaining offers from companies in need of his services. Little Miss’ business model from the get-go has been to open six satellite tasting rooms under their manufacturing license, focusing on unsaturated neighborhoods — besides the planned OB location. The Malkins are leery of filing through the San Diego office again. A local ABC agent advised them to apply in La Mesa, a municipality that only recently began encouraging brewing companies to lay down stakes, but they will also likely look north once they have some time to gain some distance and lick their wounds. •

New Little Miss Brewing brewmaster Mike Morbitzer

This drama isn’t the only turbulence for the company, which last month parted ways with the only brewmaster it has known during its first year of existence. This seems a much easier hurdle to get over than ABC issues. Former Green Flash Brewing Company brewer Joe Lisica spearheaded brewery and tasting room construction and beer production for Little Miss. His desire was to create clean, clear beers, including an assortment of single-malt-and-single-

Is San Diego the Capital of Craft Beer? Breaking down the numbers. By Ryan DeBusk

Is San Diego the capital of craft beer? It’s fun to throw around the idea that San Diego County is the best beer region in the country. However, lots of other cities across America make similar claims from Portland, Oregon to Portland, Maine. Most of these arguments are driven wayward by myopic perspectives and supported almost entirely by anecdotal evidence. But what do the stats say? Who really has the most breweries? Who’s won the most awards? Whose community drinks the most craft beer and who has the most influence?

San Diego ties for 5th in total number of breweries. Chicago and New York are on this list but it’s not exactly a fair comparison since they have much larger populations. Most craft beer enthusiasts shouldn’t be surprised to see Denver and Portland emerge here, but Seattle at the top of the list might be a shock. Bart Watson, Chief Economist of the Brewers’ Association says, “Washington and Seattle have had a growing scene for years that has certainly lagged Oregon/Portland in per capita terms, but otherwise have looked similar – and there are a lot more people up there.” A lot of the cities with the most breweries also have the most people. But is sheer size and volume the best way to compare? Next, consider the breweries per capita where the playing field is leveled. *Defined by Brewers' Association, April 2017 ^Metropolitan Statistical Area, defined by US office of Mgmt. and Budget

In per capita terms the pendulum swings the other way as San Diego actually falls to 14th behind smaller cities like Boulder, CO and Springfield, MA. San Diego is the 17th largest metropolitan area in the US and Boulder is 155th. Again, comparing regions of vastly different sizes makes for questionable conclusions. However, Denver, Portland, and Seattle still outnumber San Diego in what is easily a four-horse race of similarly sized regions. The San Diego market has distinct borders and a single county under the same name. Major sports teams also help to entrench separate identities from our neighbors. But not every region is so easily defined. Boulder, Fort Collins and Colorado Springs are all counted separately. But should they all be lumped together? Watson (based in Boulder) says, “I’ll give a solid ‘maybe’. They are only a couple hours apart without traffic and there is certainly some sense of the Front Range as a single market, but I certainly don’t get up to FC or down to CS that often.” If they were counted together they’d boast a total of about 250 breweries.

Vermont is a tightknit patchwork of small towns with a mere 624K residents that have a hyper-local mindset. Its second largest city totals only 17K residents, one-tenth the size of Oceanside. Vermont is also home to more than 50 breweries including the legendary Hill Farmstead and Alchemist originators of the massively popular New England IPA.

In medals per brewery, San Diego edged out Portland and Denver. Seattle fell way behind in the medal count. When dealing with numbers as small as medals won, it’s hard to find statistically significant data to analyze the smaller markets.

on how many entries they had.” The best way to win a lot of medals is to enter a lot of beers. With Denver hosting the annual GABF, it’s no surprise that Colorado submits entries at a much higher rate than California and Oregon

INFLUENCE: In the last decade, the story of craft beer is the story of the IPA. Nationwide in 2008 about 500,000 barrels of IPA were produced (8% of the market) and in 2015 about 7,000,000 barrels were produced (25% of the market) - far and away the most popular style. The three biggest breweries in San Diego (Ballast Point, Stone, and Green Flash) have built their brand on IPA and even written the book on it (Mitch Steele's IPA: Brewing Techniques, Recipes and the Evolution of India Pale Ale). Speaking of Enjoy By and Ruination, Stone was the most talked about brand on social media, edging out Sam Adams and New Belgium according to a study by Nielsen in 2017. Qualifier: The Pacific Northwest also heavily favors IPAs; in fact, that’s where the hops come from. Also, in the last couple years New England IPAs have caught fire and brewers across San Diego and the entire country are adapting to brew it.

In a survey of grocery store sales, craft brands have a 35% market share in San Diego (and it’s growing rapidly). Considering the outsized popularity of imports (Mexican lagers) in San Diego, this stat is even more impressive. Another stat worth noting is that San Diegans aren’t just buying more craft beer; they’re buying more local craft beer. In 2015 local craft brands surpassed non-local craft brands at the grocery store. Source: Nielsen Scantrack Grocery, 52 weeks ending June 2015

So, is San Diego the capital of craft beer? This question is fraught with potential points of disagreement. For one, what defines a city or a county or a region? All areas are unique. If the Front Range of Colorado is counted as one region then they have the biggest numbers, easily. With all the stats and metrics available there are still so many things that can never be measured. How do you chart community, cohesiveness, and diversity? How do you quantify or even define a culture? We'll update the awards section after GABF 2017 concludes (October 5-7). Some stats need more digging to unearth: barrel production, consumption at breweries and bars, and liquor store sales. Are there other metrics we should look at? Shoot me an e-mail at rdebusk@gmail.com.


#2SCIENTISTS Balboa Park's Fleet Science Center has been educating and entertaining San Diegans and tourists alike since 1973. The latest iteration of their beer-focused community outreach program – “Two Scientists Walk Into a Bar” – visits 20+ locations on Thursday, October 19. Check out the list below to find a field you're interested in, and then look for the signs reading, “We are scientists.

• According to the California Craft Brewers Association, which held a summit and beer festival in Sacramento in early September, there are now more than 850 breweries in operation across California, more than any other state in the nation. In terms of economic impact, in 2015 craft beer contributed more than $7.29 billion to the economy of California. In that same year, craft breweries in California supported more than 51,000 jobs. In 2014, California craft brewers paid over $56 million in State and federal excise taxes. Rachael Akin, Benchmark Brewing's brand czar & co-founder, spoke at the summit and provided WC with this summary: "The Summit was fun as always. There is absolutely some concern among those in the industry of overcrowding in the market, but when compared to wineries we are not even close to the number of producers -- there are still nearly twice as many wineries as breweries in the US! Overall I got a sense of a pragmatic but positive outlook in the state. I think that the industry is really starting to grow up; we're not all bootstrapping our operations anymore.

I gave a presentation called “All Beer Is Chick Beer” and I was so excited to see lots of guys in the audience. If I’m honest, I was a little frustrated to think that we still need to have this conversation, but the experience left me thinking that we, more than ever, need to be talking so that we can move past the inequities. We discussed presenting a welcoming face at all levels of customer interaction, from labels on cans to tasting room and brewing staff, and what we can do at an individual level to offer some comfort for all types of people. I could go on about this, but ultimately I was honored to be a speaker, and I'm excited that CCBA raised the issue. Independence was discussed, but more than that I saw a focus on quality. It doesn’t matter who owns the brewery if the beer is flawed. The sessions included two sensory training offerings, which was an exciting addition, and a great added value. The Summit is a great time to get advice from and make connections with beer leadership, as well as to meet with writers from all over. It’s still small enough to make connections and I love that. Tom McCormick and the rest of the staff at CCBA put on an awesome event, and we are proud to support it." C

L e f t : D r. Q u i n t e r o i n the R&D brewery Right: Cryo Hops!

W

alking cautiously up the steel steps of a spiral staircase, securely clenching a bucket holding hundreds of dollars' worth of cryogenic Citra hop powder from YCH Hops, I was anxious. Anxious for a variety of reasons: I'm afraid of heights and the brew house was located in the penthouse, there was a small fortune of raw materials entrusted to me resting delicately in a gaping bucket, and addition of Cryo Hops was the last opportunity to make a major brewing mistake before transferring the wort to the fermenter. And, most importantly, I had not only my reputation on the line, but that of my fellow campers, as well as that of our host, Sierra Nevada. The opportunity to brew a beer in Chico in this meticulouslydesigned, three-story R&D brewhouse marked the culmination of my experiences in the service industry. That first night of Sierra Nevada Beer Camp reminded me of the summer camps I was lucky enough to attend as a kid. I wondered if people would like me, if I'd make friends, if I would have fun. I also thought of the end goal: brew an original recipe at Sierra Nevada that would eventually be sold to the public. Who cared if people liked me? Who cared if I made friends? I was there for two things: 1. To learn and 2. To brew. Everything else was of no consequence, or so I thought.

Right off the bat I connected with my fellow campers by sharing stories of our personal and professional experiences that led us to this point and time. All of the 10 campers in attendance were from the bar and restaurant service industry. Some were from large corporations, others from small, literal mom and pop operations, and everything in between. At the end of the day, however, the one glaringly obvious thing was that we were all beer people. Beer People. What does that mean? Aside from knowledge of beer styles and an insatiable thirst, we were also just big fans of this stalwart brewery. We were in awe walking the winding campus of Sierra Nevada Brewing Company. Reminiscent of Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory, or perhaps The Winchester Mystery house, some of the layout seemed to have no rhyme or reason behind its design. Truth be told the campus was purchased piecemeal, year after year, growing at the pace of the brewery's success. What was once a second-hand brewhouse Frankensteined together in an old industrial space smaller than some garages, Sierra Nevada is now a multibillion dollar, family-owned-and-operated independent craft beer business with production facilities on both domestic coasts. As part of the Camp, we visited their hop fields, just a short beerbike ride on campus. We took a short drive to visit their railway, where boxcars of grain from Canada are shipped regularly. We walked amongst the "field" of Tesla Batteries that are collecting the excess energy created by one of the world's most energy efficient and sustainable breweries. We saw that this business was about so much more than just beer.

Over the years, many San Diegans have attended Beer Camp. I was there representing La Bella Pizza Garden, along with Phil Masterson from Regents Pizzeria. Notable alumni include Karen Barnett, owner/operator of Small Bar, who was a part of Beer Camp #79 and brewed a Golden Ale known as ApriQuat. Dennis Borlek, owner/operator of Shelter Island's Fathom Bistro was a part of Beer Camp #50; they brewed a Black IPA called "Black Hop Rising". Most recently, Joaquin Bausari, brewer at North Park Beer Company, participated in Beer Camp #186 to brew an IPA with wheat called "Pretty Fly for a Wheat Guy”. I thought of my fellow Campers, and those that came before us, as I delicately sifted that costly green powder into the swirling whirlpool of wort which would

eventually become a brand spanking new Sierra Nevada Brewing Company beer. Though there were other hops, and grains, and perhaps even oats in our recipe, I will always remember it as a Citra-hopped, and eventually CitraTorpedo'd American Pale Ale (APA). That hopped sugar water has fermented and is now known as "Hoppourtunist". Brewing this APA was perhaps the single most intimidating, yet intimate, activity I've participated in in the independent craft beer world. This experience showed me that "Beer Camp" is not just a clever name, it's the best type of adult summer camp. Regents held a Beer Camp night in late September, while my spot La Bella Cafe and Games is hosting our event on October 5, from 6 – 9 p.m. •

Ballast Point: Trade Street

M

any are those who tour Ballast Point Brewing’s enormous Miramar headquarters with its 300-barrel and 150-barrel brewhouses and rows of sky-high fermenters feel the county’s largest brewing company must have all the room it needs, especially with additional brewing facilities in Scripps Ranch, Little Italy, Long Beach and Roanoke, Virginia. The Miramar facility comes in with greater production capability than any other in San Diego, but rapid expansion has rendered it out of space, leading parent company Constellation Brands to secure an 80,000-square-foot building directly north of the Miramar home base. Ballast Point currently has control of 60,000 square feet of that structure for what it calls its Trade Street Facility. It has been divided into three equal-sized sections serving completely different purposes. One third is simply storage, while the middle third houses an abundant and growing stock of beer-filled oak barrels procured from various wineries and distilleries. The current barrel count comes in at approximately 1,400, with an additional 900 barrels in another facility less than a mile west on Crestmar Point. There are three full-time employees manning this section, and it will soon have tanks added to handle production of beers destined for those oak receptacles, which include about every type of liquor and wine imaginable with more on the way. Ballast Point intends to up its number of barrel-aged beer releases which are currently held quarterly and locally. Those specialties will be distributed nationally, including four-pack releases of popular beers such as aged versions of its vanilla- and coffee-infused imperial porter, Victory at Sea. Other beers the team is looking forward to debuting include Sea Monster imperial stout and Piper Down Scottish ale in Cabernet Sauvignon barrels, Navigator Doppelbock in brandy barrels, Barmy apricot and honey golden

strong ale in neutral oak, plus various Belgian-style farmhouse, tripel and quadruple ales. In addition to its own needs, Ballast Point regularly fulfills requests from other breweries for barrels from its stock, including nearby Green Flash Brewing Company and 32 North Brewing Company. The remaining third of the Trade Street facility is for “dirty beer”, referring to sours and bacteria-laden wild ales that, if not sectioned off, would stand a significant chance of infecting the clean beer as well as their production and storage mechanisms. This area has its own 40-barrel brewhouse feeding into more than 30 fermenters. It can produce up to 20,000 barrels of beer annually, some of which will make its way into six new 40-barrel, glycolequipped, temperature-controlled fouders. The dirty area also has its own devoted bottling line, which recently packaged a national release’s worth of six-packs of Sour Wench blackberry ale. Key to the new dirty beer operations is a state-of-the-art laboratory capable of providing as many quality assurance touch-points as the large lab at Ballast Point’s HQ. Prior to brewing Sour Wench for the most recent release, technicians conducted numerous tests, including analysis of myriad brands of blackberry puree and Lactobacillus strains, in search of the most ideal types for the beer. What they found was that the puree and strain the company was already using worked best, meaning the current batch of Sour Wench is very similar to the first batch ever homebrewed in 1998 (back when it went by the name Marion Berry's Better-Than-A-Crack-Whore). While primary wild ale operations will now take place on Trade Street, Ballast Point hopes the aforementioned Long Beach facility will become the research-anddevelopment feeder for the new facility. •

OCTOBER 2017


O

ctober has arrived and the final countdown to its most cherished event has begun. Soon the veil between our world and its sinister, monstrous underbelly will be lifted to the delight and terror of all. I’m referring, of course, to the imminent release of Stranger Things season 2, presuming that post-production is able to finish pitch shifting the boys’ voices back up to a pre-pubescent register in time. In celebration of this, I visited two breweries whose affiliation with the dark and fantastical is undeniable. I began with Circle 9 Brewing. There’s nothing outwardly ominous about that name, but it references Dante Alighieri’s epic poem Inferno, which depicted hell as a series of concentric torturescapes residing within the earth. It seems like a dire choice for a brewery theme until you consider pretty much all 14th century morality stemmed from the shame of indulging the wickedness of our various appetites. Our infernal love for craft beer would have certainly put most of us on the brimstone bullet train straight to the circle designated for gluttons.

As a consummate devotee of West Coast hopping sensibilities, the Hydras Double IPA was the sample I would most eagerly revisit. Its inviting orange blossom and fruity aromatics primed me for the notes of grapefruit, peach, and pine that comprised most of the flavor. It had a pleasant viscosity and warming booziness to boot. The Relic Stout charmed me as well, harboring a big nose of wet coffee grounds and milk chocolate and delivering hefty notes of dark chocolate in the first medium-bodied sip. This sweet and roasty sipper stands on its own, but the vanilla and boozy notes in the bourbon-barreled variant lend it an alluring boost. My gripes with the remaining beers were more semantic than sensory. The River of Acheron Session IPA certainly achieved a soft floral-forward IPA with a light mouthfeel to facilitate ample swilling, but at 5.8% ABV it would hardly be consequence-free to do so. The Argent American IPA had an almost meadlike sweetness and restrained citrus bitterness that was enjoyable enough to drink, but didn’t really jive with the guidelines for that style. Granted, per a conversation with the brewer, they were attempting to model a more English

The threshold of Circle 9 Brewing greets you with their imp-centric logo emblazoned on the floor, presumably seared into the cement by hellfire with an incantation from the Necronomicon. The design incorporates flames spewing forth from the logo, serving to direct you inward to the next level of damnation, A.K.A. the bar. Note: If you step in the river Acheron or start to hear the wailing of damned souls, you’ve gone too far. Before I go too deep on the whole eternal damnation motif, I should probably affirm that the tasting room is not actually a portal to perdition. While they do favor a palette of grays and reds, it’s actually an inviting and curiously stylish space. I particularly loved the DIY bartop, whose clever fishhook topology will host larger groups at the bar without forcing conversations to leapfrog each other’s heads. The remainder of the room is packed with tabletops and ledges, assuring a place to rest your beer even if your tuckus cannot find an immediate home. My only criticism would be that even the most thoughtfully cultivated underworld theme is quickly nullified when the Doobie Brothers play overhead. Mind your Pandora preferences, Circle 9 Brewing. On the day I arrived they only had imperial stouts and IPAs on. That’s a little lean for folks that crave variety, but for a business only open for three weeks these sorts of supply/demand issues are bound to appear (i.e. their Limbo Lager had just blown). And, in all honesty, it looks like the precise taplist my id would curate, so I can’t really complain. Expect considerably more variety going forward. My tasters were served on a standard wooden tasting paddle with cylindrical divots to house the glass. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with this and yet I’m disappointed. Would it have killed them to carve it from a demon’s femur and stay true to theme? Or at least laqueur them with the blood of virgins? Regardless, they held beers, so they get a pass.

sensibility with the IPA. That’s a more fitting context, but the balance would still be off for me.

Circle 9 Brewing may not realize it, but they share a very special link with BattleMage Brewing Company. Circle 9 Brewing’s name pays homage to classical underworld references, while BattleMage celebrates the fantasy gaming culture that was once considered an all-access pass to the very same pit of despair. If these two were to collaborate, it would be terrific vertical integration for the damnation industry. While current pop culture pays a lot of lip service to modern geekery, BattleMage Brewing Company’s affection for it feels completely genuine. The tasting room is a thorough realization of their theme, with walls adorned with innumerable wizards, dragons, and even a Magic: The Gathering card mosaic. Not only do they offer weekly Dungeons & Dragons sessions, multiple Dungeon Masters (the individuals responsible for directing and evolving the role-playing game events) share a common map with arching campaigns. The televisions may occasionally serve up the latest sporting event, but they are far more likely to host Twitch gaming streams. Hell, they even serve your tasters on a battle-axe. Between the “decorative” broadswords littered about, I seriously pity the orc that struts into this tavern looking for trouble.

Despite only being in business for four months, their tap list was expansive. Most of the conventional flavor profiles were represented, but I was particularly impressed that included under-appreciated styles like a Dark Mild or Old Ale. If you’re really seeking a departure from the norm, their Goblin King series features brews that are highly experimental and vastly different from one generation to the next. The most recent iteration, Goblin King 3, is the aforementioned Old Ale aged in a Henebery Merlot Mint Julep barrel. If you prefer your beers with notes of cherry crisp and mint, as I evidently do now, this is the only game in town. The only thing missing in the motif was pours of craft Mtn Dew, but even that has a spiritual successor in The Beer is Dark and Full of Caffeine Milk Stout. This unsubtle nod to Game of Thrones had hefty additions of cold brew coffee, lending its unmistakable aroma and flavor to the beer (as well as a slight mana boost to patrons). It finished drier and roastier than I’d ordinarily embrace for a milk stout, but as a hybrid it works pretty well. Their hoppier fare likewise deserves recognition. They’ve double-dipped on the Haze Craze, offering both a extra pale ale and an IPA with the now ubiquitous turbidity. Maybe I’ve just been oversteeped in nerdy references while writing this article, but does anyone else think Ubiquitous Turbidity sounds like the title of an epic prog rock album? Or at least a Dream Theater track? Anyways, of the two I preferred the Chaotic Evil Hazy Extra Pale Ale. It had an almost pillowy texture to it, with notes of French bread and citrus dominating the flavor. I similarly enjoyed the Hopdouken IPA, a golden-hued ale with a bright, cratered ivory head and massive stone fruit aromas. It produced complimentary flavors of apricot and orange that resolved with a moderated bitterness. It’s by no means the most aggressive IPA, but still quite tasty. Whether you’re a fan of the mysterious and malevolent or just popping over from the Upside Down to do some beer touring, Circle 9 Brewing and BattleMage Brewing Company have a lot to offer despite their tender age. If you’d like more information about them, feel free to consult their respective Facebook pages or chat with them via Ouija board. •

A pint from Thunderhawk's nano-brewery

In a Miramar business park, not too far from the large shadows cast by big breweries and fast food restaurants, a very interesting community is growing. Dubbed “Beeralani” by some, the Miralani Makers District is taking shape with multiple beer, spirits and food options to entice your palate.

“There's no other place like this that we know of,” acknowledges Goodheart. “I think this cooperation and community vibe will catch on. We are only helping each other. We are all working together to educate consumer, grow our companies, and promote our craft.”

Imagine a destination with four breweries, two wineries, sake, juice, cider, mead, and food within walking distance of each other, and more available parking than North Park, Downtown or Ocean Beach. Enter the Miralani Makers District.

This cooperative effort will help similar yet unique businesses thrive in a small area. Rumors of a distillery, craft salsa, and a coffee roaster would further cement the Makers District as a one-stop shop destination.

2Kids, Protector and Align make up your brewery options on the north side of the street (8680 Miralani Drive), with Charlie & Echo – formerly Hillcrest's Vinavanti – and India Street serving those who prefer wine. This industrial park is also home to Juice Wave, plus San Diego's second sake maker, Setting Sun. A few doors down, Sol-ti is an organic, cold-pressed juicer and tasting room (8380 Miralani Drive). On the south side of the street (8675 Miralani Drive), nano-brewery Thunderhawk Alements will soon welcome neighbors Lost Cause Meadery and Serpentine Cider, a recently-operational duo sharing fermentation space. When open to the public, their business model will include a kitchen – Good Seed Food Company – helmed by Chef Chuy De La Torre, formerly of Urge Gastropub, and his wife Kadi Goodheart. The prospect of working so closely with other like-minded individuals excites them.

OCTOBER 2017

As one of the more established proprietors, Sam Dufau, owner/head brewer of 2Kids, knows the importance of the right types of businesses setting up shop in the District. “Our landlords are quite the collectors, amassing all these craft makers in their buildings,” she admits. “I am looking forward to working with our fellow fermenters – hopefully we can get some interesting collaborations going for San Diego Beer Week in November!” Eric Van Drunen, the Echo in Charlie & Echo, also feeds off the creativity of the Makers District. “We decided on this location because we knew that other craft producers were going to be here,” he says. “We were the last to sign a lease I think. There were some other options out there, but none that put us in the same complex as other producers, which we thought would make a great draw for customers.” •

Long Cloud Shape-Shifts Into

Kairoa Brewing

T

hose who’ve taken notice of the notice on the old Mueller building at the corner of Park Boulevard and Madison Avenue in University Heights have attempted to learn more about a work-in-progress brewing interest by the name of Long Cloud Brewing. For the most part, such fact-finding missions have been fruitless. There’s a good reason. There is no Long Cloud Brewing. There is, however, Kairoa Brewing Company. Turns out there was a business out there with a moniker similar enough that the team of family and friends behind Kairoa opted to rename their brewpub project while staying entirely true to their original vision. In addition to all residing in University Heights, every member of Kairoa’s ownership hails from New Zealand. The Long Cloud name referred to the Maori (the country’s indigenous people) word for New Zealand, Aotearoa, which translates to “land of the long white cloud.” The new handle combines the names of two small towns on the country’s South Island: Kaikoura and Akaroa. But that’s not the only way they intend to sprinkle some of their shared heritage into the business. Ingredients native to New Zealand will be used in both the brewing (numerous hops and Manuka wood-smoked malt) and kitchen (lamb, green-lip mussels) operations. Planned as a brewpub that will cater to families as well as beer enthusiast “without cramping eithers’ style,” the 4,500-square-foot, two-story venue will be outfitted with ground-level and rooftop bars. The latter will include a game area. Both will offer house beers from Kairoa’s 10-barrel brewhouse as well as its one-barrel pilot system. Those setups will be manned by Joe Peach, who has been brewing for 10 years and has local experience at Lightning Brewery and Bitter Brothers Brewing Company. Beers brewed on the larger system will be mostly to-style, while small-batch creations will be more experimental. “New Zealand-inspired” takes on Pilsners, pale ales, smoked stouts and brown ales are part of the game plan, as are India pale ales, barrel-aged stouts and quality versions of lesser-appreciated styles. The Kairoa team projects it will produce between 400 and 600 barrels of beer in its first year, with most being sold across their own counters plus limited self-distribution. Oliver Peach, who heads culinary operations at the group’s original business directly next-door, Red House Pizza, will also oversee the kitchen at Kairoa. His aim is to elevate standard bar food, including Kiwi classics such as meat pies, sausage rolls, and fish and chips. Realizing the diverse dietary needs of locals, he plans to make vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options available as well. The Kairoa team is excited to bring a family- and community-friendly concept to a historic site that has seen better days. They are currently awaiting approval of their plans from the City of San Diego, but if all goes as planned, they expect to open sometime in mid-2018. •

Buzz Kill Alert:

Your Independent Contractors May Actually Be Employees BY AMY L. LESSA AND MEGAN E. WALKER

California is replete with employment laws and regulations that create a difficult web for breweries of all sizes. One of the first issues to address when hiring for your brewery is whether certain individuals are employees or independent contractors. Independent contractors are not considered employees for wage and hour purposes, so getting it wrong can result in steep penalties and even criminal charges in certain circumstances. In other words, it’s a big deal.

How to Spot An Employee Different government agencies and courts use different tests to determine if a worker is an employee or an independent contractor. These tests look at different factors to determine the nature of the relationship. In California, the state agencies most involved with the determination of independent contractor status are the Employment Development Department (EDD), which is concerned with employment-related taxes, and the Division of Labor Standards Enforcement (DLSE), which is concerned with whether the wage, hour and workers’ compensation insurance laws apply. Other agencies, such as the Franchise Tax Board and the Contractors State Licensing Board also have regulations concerning independent contractors. Guidance makes clear: there is no single definitive factor in determining whether an individual is an independent contractor or an employee. California wage and hour law begins with the presumption that the worker is an employee. If challenged, the DLSE then considers whether the employer has the right to control: (1) how the individual performs the work, and (2) the manner and means in which the work is performed. To help inform this evaluation, the DLSE looks at the following factors, none of which are controlling by themselves:

48

How specialized and independent is the work. If the worker is an expert or specialist of some type, and requires little-to-no supervision by brewery management, he or she may be an independent contractor. For example, a water specialist brought in to advise on optimal mineral levels for the water used in your beer could be an independent contractor, assuming he or she is free to provide such services to many different companies. The DLSE looks for unique skill in a particular occupation. But if the water expert holds a full-time position working solely for your brewery, he probably is an employee. The worker’s opportunity for profit or loss. An independent contractor is likely to have greater control over the profitability of the work he or she performs. The length of time and degree of permanence for services to be performed. Employees tend to have indefinite terms with the company or contracts that are measured in years. By contrast, independent contractors tend to be engaged by the company for specific projects due to be completed in hours, days, weeks, or months. There are, of course, exceptions. For example, a beer-tender who only works summers and holiday breaks when home from college is likely still an employee, despite the shorter length of employment because the relationship would fail the other factors. The method of payment. Independent contractors tend to be paid by the project, whereas employees are typically paid based on hours worked. What the parties believe the relationship to be. While not determinative, the intent of the parties can play a role in determining the nature of the relationship.

The nature of the work and how that relates to the business. For example, a handyman who performs repairs to your tasting room is more easily classified as an independent contractor because your brewery is not in the business of construction or building repair. The work performed by an independent contractor is typically not part of the regular business of the brewery. But workers whose services are part of your business operations are likely to be considered employees.

Ultimately, a worker should only be classified as an independent contractor if the relationship meets several of these tests. If in doubt, it is better to err on the side of caution and classify the worker as an employee.

Who provides or invests in the tools. Workers who perform most of their work using company-provided equipment, tools and materials are more likely to be considered employees. Work largely done using independently obtained supplies or tools, on the other hand, supports an independent contractor finding.

If you decide to classify certain workers as independent contractors, you should take precautions to protect the brewery. When you hire an independent contractor, keep documents to prove that the contractor really isn’t an employee. For example, don’t ask the contractor to complete your standard employment application. Instead, ask the contractor for documents that will enable you to establish that he or

Steps to Take When Hiring an Independent Contractor


she is a separate business entity, such as business cards, business or professional licenses, proof of insurance, etc. Be sure to document each of the factors you reviewed in coming up with the contractor determination. Some other protections for your brewery include the following:

• Don’t limit who else the independent contractor can work for. • Allow the independent contractor to use his own tools. • Allow the independent contractor to set his or her own schedule. • Work with an attorney to draft or review any contract you enter into with the contractor.

Ultimately, independent contractor status should be limited to those who are truly independent from your brewery. Look at the entire relationship and consider the degree or extent of the right to direct and control the individual’s work. If the individual looks like an employee, acts like an employee, and is treated like an employee, it is very likely they are an employee and should be classified accordingly. Those who make and sell your beer are some of your biggest assets. By reviewing relationship classifications at the outset, you can avoid having these assets turn into a liability. For questions on specific worker relationships, consult with an attorney. ________________________________________________________ Amy L.
