Home Brew Mart’s Family Reunion Brews

Before Ballast Point Brewing was a company capable of commanding decuple figures, before it grew into San Diego County’s largest brewery and one of the biggest beer producers in the country, before there even was a brewery called Ballast Point, there was Home Brew Mart (HBM). That Linda Vista hobby shop — one of the first to grace America’s Finest City — opened quietly in 1992 and, over the following quarter-century, has ignited a fire for recreational fermentation within a great many brewers. That includes individuals who now own breweries and brew professionally. Some of that contingent even worked for HBM in its early days. In celebration of the big two-five, Ballast Point is creating Family Reunion collaboration beers with those ex-employees as well as former BP brewers, an impressive assemblage of well-known, awardwinning talent. Several of the beers have already been released, while others are scheduled to be brewed in time for them to all be on-tap at HBM’s 25th anniversary event on September 24. The following is a breakdown of the collaborators, their creations and their past. ++ Saludos Saison: The third brewing of a strong saison with lemon peel, orange-blossom honey and thyme inspired by Brasserie Dupont’s Avec Les Bon Vouex brewed with Tom Nickel. He was HBM’s sixth employee and now owns and operates Nickel Beer Company as well as O’Brien’s Pub and West Coast Barbecue & Brews. ++ Loud & Proud: An English-style barley wine with cherrywood-smoked

malt brewed with Cy Henley, the head brewer at Amplified Ale Works. He was a clerk at HBM before moving on to Alpine Beer Company and Green Flash Brewing. ++ Name TBD: Ex-HBM clerk Larry Monasakanian is now with Fall Brewing and will help brew a 5% alcohol-by-volume saison based off the recipe for BP’s charity offering, Brother Levonian. This version will be brewed with grains of paradise, local sage and equally local wet hops from Star B Ranch, then fermented with a blend of Brettanomyces and saison yeast. ++ Scripps Tease: An extra special bitter (ESB) made with toasted oats and Ethiopia Ayeahu RFA coffee beans from James Coffee Company (close to BP’s Little Italy brewpub) brewed with Nate Stephens and Clayton LeBlanc, the brew crew for Eppig Brewing. Both worked for BP; the former led Little Italy operations while the latter brewed at its Scripps Ranch facility. ++ Swemiceros: A hoppy Kölsch dry-hopped with fruity, citrusy, herbal hops brewed with Nick Ceniceros, head brewer at 32 North Brewing. Nick worked at Scripps Ranch before moving to Fall Brewing and eventually his current digs. ++ Bay to Bay: A black California common that’s “obnoxiously dry-hopped” with Mosaic, brewed with Alex Tweet, who won a BP homebrew contest with his recipe for Indra Kunindra, a curry export stout the company still manufactures. Tweet went on to brew for Modern Times Beer before moving to Berkeley to open the popular Fieldwork Brewing. ++ Name TBD: John Maino and Greg Webb, former Scripps Ranch brewers and co-owners of Temecula’s Ironfire Brewing, will help brew a wet-hop India pale ale (IPA) fermented with Brett.

In an effort to increase its current employee base’s knowledge on the history of BP and its eldest venue, vice president Colby Chandler asked each collaborator to speak to presentday brewers about their time with the company, how it was then and how it prepared them to venture out on their own. Many said that making beer at such a fast-growing brewing company provided them wide-ranging experience as well as reference points for overcoming myriad obstacles. According to Chandler, many brewery owners, in particular, felt their time with BP made it much easier once they were working for themselves.

Green Flash Stakes Claim in Nebraska

Over the past half-decade, a number of large craft brewing interests have opened additional manufacturing facilities far removed from their home bases in an effort to reduce shipping costs while increasing beer freshness and, of course, overall production capabilities. Logically, most of these moves involved West Coast operations such as Sierra Nevada Brewing, Stone Brewing and Ballast Point Brewing selecting sites on the East Coast. The latter two now operate full-scale breweries in Virginia, as does Mira Mesabased Green Flash Brewing, which went live with its 58,000-square-foot facility in Virginia Beach last year. With that milestone surpassed, owners Mike and Lisa Hinkley are en route to the next marker on the expansion highway, and it’s hammered on the side of Interstate 80 in the capital city of Nebraska. Today, Green Flash announced its recent purchase of a 10,000-square-foot brewing facility at 1630 P Street in Lincoln, Nebraska. The brewery, which was previously owned and operated by Ploughshare Brewing Company, was acquired intact, and includes both tasting room and restaurant components. Laying down stakes in the Cornhusker State will allow for faster delivery and better regional pricing to key Midwest metropolises, including Denver, Kansas City and Minneapolis, as well as surrounding states such as Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Wyoming and the Dakotas. This is part of an ongoing effort by the company to establish regional footholds in key cities across the country. According to Hinkley, there is no target number in mind, but the Lincoln facility will not be the last for Green Flash. When asked what made Lincoln attractive, Hinkley says, “I have long-time friends in neighboring Omaha at Nebraska Brewing Company. I went to visit them and look at the facility that became available and it was an easy decision. It’s a great college town with great spirit.” Currently, there are no breweries in Nebraska brewing more than the 10,000 barrels per year that Green Flash aims to produce, so they will come in as both

the newest and biggest kid on the block. Lincoln’s brewing interests register in the teens, of which Zipline Brewing is the largest. Green Flash should be able to compete for customers early thanks in part to its inherited restaurant, which is 2,000 square feet in size with seating for 100, including a 30-seat mezzanine area. Between 20 and 30 taps will dispense beers from Green Flash and sister-brand Alpine Beer Company, while the menu will include burgers, sandwiches, an array of appetizers and sauces made using ingredients from local purveyors. Understanding the importance of football in a college town (and being within walking distance of the University of Nebraska), a state-of-the-art A/V system will facilitate spectating of Cornhusker games. This is the first of Green Flash’s facilities to include a restaurant. Green Flash expects to employ more than 20 people in Lincoln. The 15-barrel brewery will be operated under the direction of brewmaster Erik Jensen, who will remain based in San Diego. Both Green Flash and Alpine beers will be produced in Nebraska. If all goes as scheduled, that facility will be up, running and welcoming guests in as few as 90 days. Green Flash, which is currently the 41st largest craft brewing company in the U.S. and will celebrate its 15th year in business this fall, is following in the footsteps of other large brewing interests who operate or are in the process of constructing breweries in the Midwest. A local member of that contingent is the aforementioned Ballast Point, which is building a 12,000-square-foot brewpub in Chicago’s West Loop/Fulton Market area that is scheduled to open next year.

Wet Hop Beers of 2017 By Ryan Lamb

With San Diego now home to more than a dozen hop farms, local brewers are seizing the opportunity to use freshly-picked hops in their beers for an added dose of aroma and flavor. This year’s hop harvest started towards the end of July, with breweries Amplified, Burning Beard, and Nickel among the first to pick hops from the bine, meaning the county’s first wethop beers of 2017 already graced taps in early August.

Leading the charge per usual is Tom Nickel, a 22-year veteran of the San Diego brewing scene. By the time this issue prints, the seven-barrel brewery he runs in Julian, Nickel Beer Co, will have churned out ten or so wet hop beers. “We added a new fermenter, so we are brewing 2 wet hop beers a week for 5 straight weeks across 6 different beer styles, using 3 different yeast strains,” Nickel says. “I am pretty certain that only Sierra Nevada might have ever brewed more than 10 wet hop beers in a single harvest.” The bar he owns in Kearny Mesa, O’Brien’s Pub, recently tapped a few wet hop beers from Nickel Beer Co and other breweries, but the real party is scheduled for September 14-17, when the pub hosts “San Diego Wet Hop Weekend.” The night of Thursday the 14th will likely kick off with a wet hop cask and a collection of Nickel beers, before wet hop beers from all over Southern California take over the taps for the weekend. The next weekend, on Friday, September 22, South Park’s Hamiltons Tavern will tap a cask of Nickel’s Wet Hop Buffalo Paw Brown Ale, plus offer flights from five more wet hop Nickel beers, including a collaboration with breweries South Park and Benchmark. Following is our knowledge of the local wet hop beer list as of late August. Stay tuned to WestCoasterSD.com for a wet hop update in early September.

F U L L D I S C LO S U R E : I was approached by the American Association Advancing All Aluminum Apparatus (AAAAAA) to pen this article. They believe, as I do, that cans are the superior conveyance for my cherished elixir and its surging adoption rate in the craft beer industry is emblematic of that. They also believe that every can-based pun I cram in here for subliminal marketing purposes is worth an obscene amount of payola. I only hope canfessing to any potential canpensation or canflict of interest will canstrain a sCANdal.

Yes.We Can.

SEPTEMBER 2017

The weekly gauntlet to acquire specialty can releases is hardly news at this point, but over the last year there have been a surprising abundance of newer retail canned options as well. This calls for a Lightning Round Review!


THORN STREET BREWERY | BARRIO LAGER (4.5% ABV)

Mexican lager is having a moment. What was once maligned as the mundane, fizzy swill for simpler palates has reemerged as the mundane, fizzy quaff for worldly sophisticates. I love that. Not only do I get to slay my thirst entirely craft-guilt-free, but it’s a reminder that sometimes craft beer doesn’t require a ton of homework to enjoy. The fleeting eggshell head and aromas of wet grain & Wonder Bread in Barrio Lager rekindle fond memories of beach vacations and booting on the curb somewhere down on Avenida Revolución. Those sweet, straightforward cereal grains continue into the first sip, countered by a floral and somewhat mineral (if not particularly dry), finish. It’s familiar, fun, and delivers exactly what it promises. NOVO BRAZIL BREWING | SAMBA HAZE IPA (5.4% ABV)

Samba, for the uninitiated, is a reference to the canned drum beat on old Casio keyboards adjacent to “Dance” and “Pop/Rock”. All I really can say about it is it sounded like shit when I played “Chopsticks”. This honey-hued NE IPA is more murky than hazy, but it’s hardly worth splitting hairs. Its aroma delivers splashy tropical notes of pineapple, mango and orange with such accuracy and specificity it seems almost artificial. It’s not unpleasant, mind you, just weirdly reminiscent of tropical Sunburst (a candy I’ve long associated with children’s unnatural compulsion to eat sugary surfwax). The flavor translates in a much more familiar way, opening with bright, lemon and mango fruit, dimmed slightly by a measure of minimally dank pine. It finishes a little oily and sweet. It’s a decent representative for the NE IPA hype, especially given that a campout wasn’t needed to acquire it. MASON ALE WORKS | CASH IMPERIAL COFFEE STOUT (9.4% ABV)

This imperial coffee stout delivers on the promises in its name with an uncommon intensity. The aromas reminds of a coffee liqueur, a concentrated dose of cold brew coffee and streusel-like sweetness. It’s grounded with a bit of earthiness that never quite sways into roasty. Similarly the first taste is a blast of pourover coffee with hints of cocoa and burnt toast buried within. There’s some initial coffee cake sweetness, but it finishes with with a piney, earthy bitterness and a smidge of boozy heat. This is unquestionably a beer for coffee-lovers by coffee-lovers. It lacks the succulence that many of its imperial stout contemporaries embrace, but fans of a good cuppa aren’t likely to complain. COUNCIL BREWING CO./ MAGIC FACTORY | UNBREAKABLE HEX (6.3% ABV)

This sharp golden ale produces no discernable head whatsoever, no matter how vigorous the pour. That may be typical of barrel-aged wild ales, but I’m not a seasoned enough consumer to say. What it lacks in foam it more than makes up for in a luxuriously musty nose punctuated by notes of overripe

stone fruit and pineapple. The first sip initially nips at the tongue with a tart, citric bite, but a hugely fruity character emerges behind that. Nectarine and pineapple dominate the sharp, bright experience from front to back. I’ve long been on the record for not being a particular fan of sour and wild ales. That hasn’t changed. However, it’s only fair to acknowledge that Unbreakable Hex faced those wildly unfavorable odds and emerged with my begrudging respect. It’s not my thing, but it’s brought me one half-step closer to understanding why it’s a thing for others - that’s high praise if you ask me. BOOZE BROTHER BREWING CO. | SNOWBLIND WITBIER (5.7% ABV)

Modern Times Beer gets abundant press for their zazzy can designs and deservedly so. Gazing directly into a can of Effective Dreams has been reported to cure gout, glaucoma, or virtually any other affliction that starts with g. No one knows why. Even if the new cans from Booze Brothers Brewing Co. aren’t imbued with mystical healing powers, they are undeniably stylish and distinctive designs. Per the can they have also quietly entered the gluten reduction game as well, which is a nice touch. The light gold brew is topped with a fleeting, beady head. It has a lot going on in the nose, from grainy aromas reminiscent of shredded mini-wheats to an almost floral yeast character. The flavor is similarly layered, dumping big notes of honey and orange zest up front, followed by biscuity malts, and a yeasty, slightly tart finale. This beer hits all the classic witbier flavors and amplifies them without feeling excessive. SECOND CHANCE BEER COMPANY | CLEVER HOPPY NAME XPA (5.6% ABV)

The first sniff of Clever Hoppy Name XPA makes it clear that you are about to dive head first into fruit-forward hoppy goodness. It’s a bright melange of orange juice, nectarine, and the merest hint of pineapple. The muted amber brew likewise ushers big citrus presence in the flavor with stone fruit and spruce as it finishes. It has a slightly oily resonance to the hop flavor and a subtle crackery malt note in the background. This is an XPA tour de force, slinging boisterous hop character with sparing bitterness. It’s a lovesong to the warmer months and should be enjoyed within its bounds. CORONADO BREWING COMPANY | 21ST ANNIVERSARY IMPERIAL IPA ​ (8.0% ABV)

Like most people celebrating their twenty-first year on this planet, Coronado opted to bring a little extra alcohol into the mix. This IIPA is a bright, golden brew with a fluffy ivory head. The herbal and pine aromatics charge out of this bad boy like they’re fleeing a crime scene. The flavor revisits those in syrupy gulps with a little grapefruit in the back-end. It finishes moderately bitter and a bit drier than others in the style. The 21st birthday may be primarily defined by mirth and recklessness, but this beer shows wisdom beyond its years. It doesn’t shout for attention, but rather quietly recognizes that it has a lot of substance to offer. It’s all grownsed up. •

Plates & Pints

BY BRANDON HERNÁNDEZ

I never grow weary of the incredulous if not reviled looks I receive when telling the unindoctrinated about the harmonious beer-anddessert pairing that is carrot cake and India pale ale. I can relate. The first time Ballast Point Brewing veteran Colby Chandler shared this one-two punch with me, I was floored. It sounded ridiculous to marry any confectionery creation – much less one fueled by beta carotene – with a hoppy beer, but once we put that theory to practice during a cookbook shoot, I found out how meant to be this unlikely duo actually is. In the years since, I’ve indulged in this pairing numerous times and found that what takes it from being a good pairing to a great pairing is beer selection. For the most part carrot cake tastes the same from baker to baker, but IPAs can vary dramatically. Those that are more of the old-fashioned English or imperial kind tend to be sweeter with more malt-born caramel notes, while San Diegostyle IPAs are drier with unimpeded hop aromas and flavors. All these types of IPAs will work, but hop-profile is key. Classic C hops – Cascade, Centennial, Chinook and Columbus–lead with resinous, pine-like characteristics that are among the few that don’t mesh well with carrot cake. IPAs brewed with hops exhibiting the essence of tropical and citrus fruit – Citra, Mosaic, Nelson Sauvin – fare much better with this classic dessert. Until recently, this was the extent of my technique for pairing IPAs and carrot cake, but the emergence of a new ilk of India pale ale recently inspired me further refinement, and it turns out that, with its unbelievably fruit-forward flavors and low-grade bitterness, hazy Northeast-style IPAs brewed with hops packed with tropical punch are the penultimate option in this sweets-andsuds game. Options abound from breweries all throughout San Diego County, but when experimenting I ventured into the heart of the “Murklands”, Miramar’s Pure Project Brewing. In just over a year they have made a big name for themselves thanks much in part to their ever-hazy line of hop-heavy offerings. After some

trial with very little error, I can attest that their Northeast-style IPAs pair nicely with carrot cake, but I wanted to take things to a new level, by not only selecting a well-suited beer, but tweaking the cake to blend especially well with its liquid counterpart. Enter my tropical take on carrot cake. I start with a time-tested recipe for that dessert, then adjust its many mix-ins, which often include raisins, nuts, pineapple, coconut flakes and carrots. The latter remain, of course, as does the pineapple, which is the most obvious flavor-bridge for the tropical-fruit essence of the hops in the IPA. The coconut and raisins stay, as well, but the latter are made to soak in a substantial dose of spiced rum before going in, adding to the tropical nature of the finished product. And though popular, I do not add any walnuts or pecans, as they don’t bring much flavor to the party, and none that aids in pairing with the IPA. On the frosting front, it would be downright sacrilege to mess with the glory that is cream cheese, butter and sugar, but instead of adding milk or lemon juice, I substitute in some pineapple juice. A generous sprinkling of toasted coconut helps bring things together while adding texture. It also makes this dessert a shoe-in pairing with Vacation Coconut IPA from Resident Brewing, which comes across as the Piña Colada of beer. Pure Project head brewer Winslow Sawyer suggested grilling the pineapple, but given the lack of caramel notes in the beer I selected, a murky IPA hopped exclusively with Mosaic called Thousands of Money, I felt it was best to go with unadulterated pineapple. But by all means, switch things up and try your own forms of experimentation. The results will be as fun to savor as your friends’ reactions when you tell them how well carrot cake pairs with hoppy beer. •

BRANDON'S TROPICAL CARROT CAKE With Toasted Coconut, Rum-Bloomed Raisins & Pineapple Cream Cheese Icing YIELD: 8 TO 10 SERVINGS

¼ cup spiced rum (Local distilleries making spiced rum include Cutwater, Liberty Call, and Malahat)

Heat the rum in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Once warmed, place the raisins in a small heat-proof container, cover with rum and let soak, covered, for 30 minutes. Set aside.

¾ cup golden raisins

Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.

2 cups granulated sugar 1 cup vegetable oil 4 large eggs 2 cups all-purpose flour 2 tsp baking powder 2 tsp baking soda 2 tsp ground cinnamon ½ tsp salt ¼ cup ground allspice ¼ cup freshly grated nutmeg 3 cups carrots (preferably yellow), grated 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes ½ cup crushed pineapple 12 oz cream cheese, room temperature ¾ cup unsalted butter, room temperature 1½ lbs confectioner’s sugar 1 Tbsp pineapple juice 1 cup toasted coconut flakes

In an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together the granulated sugar and oil. Mix in the eggs, one at a time, until completely incorporated. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, allspice and nutmeg. Add the flour mixture to the batter and mix until the batter is smooth. Add the carrots, untoasted coconut, pineapple and raisins and mix in on low speed. Pour equal portions of the mixture into three greased 9-by-2-inch baking pans and place in the oven. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cakes comes out clean. Remove from the oven and place the pans on baking racks for 10 minutes. Remove the cakes from the pans and let cool to room temperature. Place the cream cheese and butter in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Cream the ingredients together until completely incorporated. Add the confectioner’s sugar 1 or 2 cups at a time, until thoroughly incorporated. Mix in the pineapple juice and set aside. When the cakes are cooled, use a bread knife to slice off the rounded top of each cake so that each is level. Place a round on a cake plate and top with roughly ¼ of the frosting. Use an offset spatula to make an even layer of frosting. Top with another cake round and repeat the process. Top with the remaining cake round and ice the top, then use the remaining frosting to ice the sides of the cake. Top the cake with toasted coconut (or apply to the sides, leaving the top unadorned).

Brewers Association craft brewer definition: An American craft brewer is small, independent and traditional. Small: Annual production of 6 million barrels of beer or less (approximately 3 percent of U.S. annual sales). Beer production is attributed to the rules of alternating proprietorships. Independent: Less than 25 percent of the craft brewery is owned or controlled (or equivalent economic interest) by an alcoholic beverage industry member that is not itself a craft brewer. Traditional: A brewer that has a majority of its total beverage alcohol volume in beers whose flavor derives from traditional or innovative brewing ingredients and their fermentation. Flavored malt beverages (FMBs) are not considered beers. At press time, 1,848 breweries had adopted the new Independent Craft Brewer Seal.

Magnetic Brewing Evicted

Opened in August of 2015, Kearny Mesa’s Magnetic Brewing didn’t celebrate a second anniversary this month. An eviction noticed was recently posted in July at the Cabrillo Commerce Center on Magnatron Blvd. Multiple requests for comment from Magnetic’s Morgan McCarty went unanswered. Last August, the 1.5-barrel nano-brewery started a GoFundMe crowdfunding campaign offering 1% equity in the company in exchange for $6,000. The campaign was subsequently taken down, with McCarty admitting in a Facebook post that “Gofundme has deleted the campaign because you’re not supposed to offer securities through their site.” A follow-up story by San Diego Reader reported a successful lawsuit filed against Magnetic by an investor who had purchased 2 percent of the brewery via check. The lawsuit alleged negligence, breach of contract, and fraud in the amount of $12,000 plus damages.

Iron Fist News

Many were those who felt for Tom Garcia when he announced he was closing his business, Offbeat Brewing Company, last March. The Escondido brewery shuttered following one last hurrah on St. Patrick’s Day after five years of presenting mostly English-inspired ales along with art from local creators. A former employee at nearby Stone Brewing before going out on his own, Garcia has been absent from the brewing scene since closing Offbeat, but he is making his return. In August Iron Fist Brewing announced they have hired Garcia to serve as brewing production manager at its Vista headquarters. “I’m very excited to have been given the opportunity to work with Iron Fist,” said Garcia in a press release. “We have great beer with a high potential for growth and innovation. I’m looking forward to helping push the boundaries of deliciousness with [the company].” This addition comes nine months after Iron Fist brought in investors Wayne and Cindy Seltzer, a couple that sold their 30-year-old nutritional solutions interest business, Seltzer Companies, to Glanbia PLC in 2006 for $105 million. The Seltzers bring diverse backgrounds in the food-and-beverage distribution and manufacturing industries, and they are involved in other business interests in the county, most notably the San Diego Padres ownership group. This infusion of capital has allowed the company to look forward rather than tread water. It has also provided added visibility in the marketplace, most notably at Petco Park, where Iron Fist’s beers are readily available via multiple venues and dedicated, branded carts. Iron Fist also operates a satellite tasting room in Barrio Logan, which opened in July of 2015.

Karl's Distributorship

With 28 years under their belt, the folks at Karl Strauss Brewing Company have done a great deal: opening San Diego proper’s first post-Prohibition Era brewery, building the county’s largest network of brewpubs, contract brewing out-of-state and later bringing fermentation operations back to America’s Finest City, building venues in Orange County and Los Angeles. They could have rested on their laurels or become stagnant at any point, but founders Chris Cramer and Matt Rattner continue to look for ways to innovate and identify new revenue streams. The latest example of that is Karl Strauss’ recent establishment of its own distribution arm. The company has been laying the framework for a distributorship for several years, but recently launched delivery of beers from its first two distributed brands, new Oceanside-based business Black Plague Brewing Company and Grantville’s four-year-old Benchmark Brewing Company. The latter’s Orange County launch took place in August, though Karl Strauss had been in talks with Benchmark for well over a year. Continued on page 36 »

“We’re expanding on our on-premise, self-distribution network in San Diego and Orange County to now include a select group of local, independent breweries,” says Mark Weslar, Karl Strauss’ vice president of marketing. “Delivering our own beers on-premise has helped us develop an expertise selling to and servicing local bars and restaurants. We look forward to helping some brewery friends build their business.” The first San Diego County brewery to go from brewing to manufacturing and distributing not only its own beers but those of fellow local brands was Stone Brewing. Founders Greg Koch and Steve Wagner often cite that as a key moment in the company’s history, and a business move that kept Stone from going out of business. After having many doors slammed in their face by distributors unwilling to take a chance on their new, small operation, they decided to do it themselves. In opening Stone Distributing Co. in the late-nineties, they brought aboard brands such as AleSmith Brewing and Coronado Brewing, later adding brands from across the country as well as numerous international brewing companies. Today, that entity is responsible for distribution of 44 brands—that like Karl Strauss’ portfolio are all independent—throughout Southern California. Karl Strauss has no immediate plans to bring on additional brands, but plans to be selective when they do, focusing on local and independent interests representing a partnership that would make sense for all parties involved. Says Weslar, “It’s an exciting new venture, but it’s also business as usual here at Karl Strauss with all of us maintaining our focus on making, selling and distributing great beer.”

Q&A with Derek Gallanosa

There are movers and shakers in the local beer-brewing and beer-drinking subculture. Then there is Derek Gallanosa, a BMOC among both factions who, while coming up in the industry with Karl Strauss Brewing before leaving to open and head brewing operations at Rancho Bernardo’s Abnormal Beer Company, maintained his recreational fanatic status via beer trading, tourism and bottle shares. On top of that, he has spent the past three years as an instructor in San Diego State University’s Business of Craft Beer certificate program. Few are the craft-inclined in San Diego who don’t know of him, making his announcement earlier last month that he’ll be moving away to pursue a new brewery project all the more surprising. We sat down to ask him about it and found out the opportunity he’s pursuing is as exciting as it is bittersweet.

What is most exciting about taking on a new endeavor? Starting fresh with a new lineup of beers and new customers. It’s going to be a learning process just like any new chapter of your life but I feel I have the experiences to succeed in most situations.

SEPTEMBER 2017

What are you able to share about your next chapter? The name of the brewery will be released in the near future but it will be somewhere in Northern California. I will be a partner in the business, and we will have a big focus on direct-to-customer sales with a lot of can and bottle releases. Just like Abnormal, I will continue to innovate, learn and grow as a brewer. There is no “brewmaster” here, just someone who wants to spend a lifetime knowing more than he did the day before.

Will you continue to collaborate as you did at Abnormal? The collaborations will continue and will be a part of our marketing strategy. There is so much knowledge to share and so much to gain through collaborating with other breweries. I am excited to continue the friendships I have gained during my time at Abnormal and hope to expand my network with even more like-minded craftsmen.

What is your transition plan? I am confident Abnormal will continue on without any change in quality. We have a talented team in place and I will spend the next month unloading everything I have learned in the past two-and-a-half years running the brewery. We are a dynamic company and will always try to push the limits our creativity, so my job is to set them up for success as they continue to be a big player in the craft-beer scene.

TAKING A CRACK AT There’s only so far you can go on raw talent alone. Relentless practice and extreme devotion are keys to mastering any skill — even beer drinking. That’s what sets the 2 female and 11 male Master Cicerones apart from the rest of the suds-swilling herds: a relentless drive to sharpen one’s palate and correctly identify the often invisible, but always crucial elements of beer-making, from troubleshooting draft system design to advanced food pairing. Since 2009, over 150 people have attempted the Master exam, two of whom hail from right here in the Capital of Craft — San Diego. George Thornton (owner/brewer at Home Brewing Company and owner of The Homebrewer) and Morgan Tenwick (Quality Control Manager at Modern Times Beer), both already certified Beer Judges and high-level Cicerones, have attempted to join the illustrious ranks who have earned the title “Master Cicerone” — the highest level of beer certification offered by the Cicerone Certification Program, and thus the most advanced in the world — and spoke with me about their history in beer, their training processes, the grueling exam schedule, and ultimately their results.

BECOMING A 40

SEPTEMBER 2017


What got you into beer in the first place?

GEORGE: I’ve always had a fascination with European beer culture for as long as I can remember. At least since the age of 12, I can recall thinking that German beer gardens and British pubs must be some of the best places in the entire world, and that some of the most brilliant thoughts must have been conjured in the company of like-minded friends around a good beer. Thus far, my experiences have revealed that this is true. MORGAN: I began to discover and appreciate local breweries sometime around 2008. I still remember my first visit to the original AleSmith location and thinking how cool it was that the beer could be so diverse and take on so many different flavors. Being a scientist, it made me curious about where these flavors came from, and I started to casually play around with homebrewing. I really just fell in love with the whole process, and “I haven’t seen you in awhile, let’s grab a beer” became a regular part of my vocabulary. When did you first become a Cicerone?

MORGAN: I took the online Certified Beer Server exam (Level 1) in October 2014, the Certified Cicerone exam in April 2015, and then took the Advanced Cicerone exam in February 2016. I received my passing Level 3 results in April 2016 and then enrolled to take the Master exam in October. [It’s been] almost exactly two years in total from Level 1 to sitting for the Master exam.

GEORGE: I started studying for the Cicerone in 2012 by first studying for the Beer Judge Certification Program (BJCP). The Cicerone program uses the BJCP guidelines for their style questions, and it’s a great way to start developing techniques that will improve your palate. [After passing the Certified Cicerone exam in 2014], I turned my focus back to the BJCP in order to gain more experience and to tap into the already well organized BJCP/homebrew community in San Diego. There are probably more BJCP study groups in San Diego than Cicerone study groups. I think this is because of the amazing homebrew community in San Diego, and homebrew clubs like QUAFF, Mash Heads, Society of Barley Engineers, Suds Sorority and more. What made you decide to becoming a Master Cicerone?

pursue

GEORGE: I felt that it would be a good template for guiding my interest in learning more about beer… it would give me a place to start and a target for where to finish (although, I’ll never stop learning more about beer). I also realized that there are no Master Cicerones in San Diego. It would be great to be one of the first, but I think that it’s even more important that others are encouraged to take after me/us. At least I can now be a resource for those that want to know more about the process. Justin Evelyn of Bagby Beer Company took the exam with me in 2015. We both did very well,

but neither of us passed. He is a proctor for the Certified Cicerone exams in San Diego, so many people are familiar with his hard work.

MORGAN: Before my career in beer, I was working as a chemist in the biotech industry. When I made that first jump into the beer industry, my friends and family thought I had lost my mind. But I started reading every brewing book I could get my hands on, and I fell in love. Beer is both a science and an art. It’s precision and it’s creativity. It’s one of the oldest drinks in the world and has been deeply ingrained in human history, but it’s also something that never will never fall stagnant, because there is no limits or bounds to what you can do with those four ingredients. So I wanted to learn as much as possible to further my own career and to satisfy my own curiosity. When I learned of the Cicerone program, I figured I may as well apply my studying into something concrete that I could work towards [and] enrolled in the Certified Cicerone exam in Spring 2015. What was your preparation process like?

GEORGE: A weekly study group that included a lot of blind tasting, cheese/meat/beer pairings, and discussion. We filled our fridge with over 50 beers wrapped in foil that I could grab at any moment to blind taste. I geared the curriculum for the San Diego State University Beer Styles to emphasize styles/history that I thought would best reflect the interests of the Cicerone program. I also re-skimmed about 20 beer books and spent more time revisiting a core selection of texts. Also lots of flash cards, and

surrounding myself with a lot of very, very smart beer people.

of tasting exams (four exams at 15 minutes each), and a one hour lunch break.

MORGAN: [When I got my Advanced Cicerone passing results in April 2016], I figured I would maybe consider taking the Master exam later on in my career, but didn’t have any intention of taking it anytime soon. I got a text from George on some random weekday in August, telling me that seats had opened up for the Master exam in October. At first I thought he was crazy because I didn’t think I was anywhere near ready. But after a few motivating texts from George, I went from “no way dude” to “why not, can’t hurt to try” and then enrolled the next day with a little under 10 weeks to prepare.

The morning of the first exam day, George and I arrived 45 minutes early. It was 7 in the morning in Chicago in late October, so… cold and windy. We ran to the nearest coffee shop for shelter, drank some coffee, did a little last minute flash card review, and really just tried to make terrible jokes to lighten the mood and calm each other down.

Working in a brewery and being surrounded by beer on a daily basis is definitely a huge advantage. I also have some incredibly smart, talented, passionate, and supportive friends in different aspects of the beer industry that I am constantly learning from and using as resources. Just drinking beer and talking about beer with friends in a casual, but educational setting has been one of the most beneficial parts of my preparation process. Beyond that, it was just a lot of reading… we definitely crammed for the last few weeks leading to the exam with lots of flash cards and late night sessions.

When we got to the exam, they sat us in a room with a few long community-style benchtop tables and gave us some time to sign in, turn in our personal belongings, eat some breakfast, drink MORE coffee, get to know each other, etc. At that point, the group is split into two groups. The first group spends the first half of their day with the written exams and the second group with the oral/demonstration exams.

What was the exam like?

I was in the first group, and jumped right into three straight hours of written essays. I believe there were a total of seven or eight long essays where you need to address as much information as possible, in a coherent way, while keeping track of your time to get to each question. This was mentally exhausting, for obvious reasons, but also physically exhausting, i.e. blisters and hand cramps. We were then given two 15-minute tasting exams and a lunch break.

MORGAN: The exam itself is two days long, eight hours per day. Each day consists of three hours of written essay exam, three hours of oral/demonstration exams, a total of one hour

The second half of the day is three cumulative hours of oral/demonstration exams where you rotate through various stations and have to verbally answer an onslaught of questions and/

or perform different tasks, from identifying and talking through the different parts of a brewhouse, to preparing a cask for serving, troubleshooting a faulty long-draw draught system, identifying raw ingredients and recipe design, explaining beer styles, food pairings… you name it. I found this to be extremely difficult. In a written essay setting, you at least have some time to prepare a response, sort through your thoughts, even erase and correct mistakes as you go. In a face-to-face interview setting, I found myself walking out of a few of the sessions thinking…”what did I just say?!” or the second you walk out, that one answer pops into your head and you want to run back in and yell…”wait, I got it!”, but it’s too late and you’re already switching mental gears to head into the next interview or demonstration. This process was nerve-wracking, but also incredibly fun and exhilarating. The day ends with two more 15 minute tasting exams, and everyone heads home in a daze to get some rest for day two. The second day is a near replica in format with all new material. At the end of the second day, the examiners take time to answer questions, give us a pat on the back, and then they pour everyone a shot of Malort. If you’ve never had Malort, consider yourself lucky. It’s horrible. It’s like someone took grapefruit pith and concentrated it down to the most bitter substance on earth and then mixed it with black licorice and mud. But we all did it together because it’s tradition.


Then we all walked as fast as we could to the nearest bar and drank, laughed at each other for willingly subjugating ourselves to that kind of stress, drank some more, and vowed that those of us that didn’t pass would be back next year to do it all again. What were some of the other Cicerone exams like and how did you prepare for those? How would you recommend others prepare for them? MORGAN: The Level 1 exam is an online quiz covering the basics of draught maintenance and serving beer, and a little on styles. There wasn’t any real preparation for this one, as most of the material I had learned from bartending, but it’s something that anyone could quickly pass with a quick overview of the basics. I prepared for Level 2 for ~6 months, during which I studied almost completely on my own with help from a few colleagues that had previously taken the exam. Passing the Certified exam opened up some doors for me and my career, and motivated me to keep going.

GEORGE: The Certified Level exam is essentially a mini version of the Master exam. The scope of expected knowledge is easily 3-4 times wider, and the level of expertise on each topic is also increased. I recommend that those studying for the Certified level combine the 10-week Study Guide from the BJCP with an overlay of the Cicerone Syllabus and Practice Exam. That should be sufficient to prepare. George, since this was your second time taking the exam, what were some of the

differences between this time and your first attempt?

What would it mean for you to become a Master?

GEORGE: The exam itself has proven to be one of the most fun, exciting, challenging, and stimulating experiences I can think of. I can say that for both times that I took it. The first time I was so nervous on day one that I certainly flubbed on a few interviews, so for day two and for attempt number two, I did my best to stay in a positive mood and to just focus on having fun with the experience. I scored 81 points on that first attempt (you need 85 to pass). That’s a great score, but you have to do better to pass.

GEORGE: It means that people can count on me

I realized that for the second time around, I had to practice being comfortable talking about the various aspects and with having my answers critiqued on the spot. I had friends practice drilling me with a “20 Questions”-style interrogation on specific topics. Essentially they would just keep asking “why” with every response, until we found the edges of my knowledge. Then I would try to assess whether that knowledge was important to the core mission of the Cicerone program, which is to educate and excite consumers about craft beer. The test material is broad, and so vast, that it is impossible to guess what questions will be asked. I can say that it is absolutely humbling to talk about, write about, and taste beer for nine hours a day, two days in a row, and then at the end of it feel like I know absolutely NOTHING about beer!

to help steer their beer journey in a direction they may not have known existed, and that hopefully adds value to their lives in subtle or profound ways. I also want the title because I feel like some people are too snobby, pretentious, braggadocious, and loud about their beer knowledge and how they treat others. It can be a real turn-off. If I am Master Cicerone in the room, then perhaps I can set the tone for how to talk about beer enthusiastically, but to also keep it calm and rooted. I want people to feel welcome and encouraged to learn. It’s just beer, after all. Beer is my livelihood, my social network, my passion… but it’s still just beer.

MORGAN: I initially took the Certified exam because I knew that it would help propel my career in the industry and open up new doors and opportunities. I need to be able to understand all aspects of the process, from brewing, yeast management, product consistency and troubleshooting, draught maintenance and design, microbiology, sensory, and just being able to drink a beer and describe it to someone else in an approachable way. The certifications have helped me in demonstrating that I’ve put in the energy and dedication to gathering and applying that broad range of knowledge. I do it because I love it, and I do it because I want to be able to help others learn to love it as well. •

Unfortunately, neither Thornton or Tenwick passed the Master exam this time around (Thornton and Bagby’s Justin Evelyn are both planning another attempt this fall), but with a burning desire to further their own knowledge in order to enrich the already stellar San Diego craft beer scene — where the only Advanced Cicerone to date is female — there’s no doubt we as a city are already benefitting from their expertise and enthusiasm.

Do you think the brewing style will remain the same at Abnormal? Abnormal has always been about keeping a few core beers [perpetually] on tap while having a bunch of specialty one-offs fill up the rest of the in house tap list. I see that still being the case moving forward, same core beers and a few other specialties that cater to the demand of our customers.

Who will be taking over brewing at Abnormal? The new head brewer for Abnormal will be Nyle Molina as of October 1. The knowledge and experience he has gained from previously working at Green Flash Brewing and Funky Buddha Brewery was the reason we brought him into the Abnormal family. In the few weeks he has been here, he has shown great work ethic and a passion to produce quality products. With that being said, we are now looking for a new brewer to fill his role so send those résumés to info@abnormalbeer.com.

What is the hardest part about leaving Abnormal? All the people that I work with that have been so supportive of the beer coming out of the brewery, the fact that I have an awesome restaurant I can order lunch from every day, the beer dinners, the camaraderie of the San Diego brewing scene, the drinking community that I love to geek out with, and all that beer I’m leaving in oak barrels for the next guy will be things I will miss. But the most important thing I will miss by moving away are the friends and family that I love who have supported me along my personal and professional journeys.

Any parting words for the San Diego beer community? Thank you to all the fans of our beer from San Diego and beyond. A lot of people ask me what it’s like to live a dream. I’ve been responding with, “I don’t know,” because right now I feel like I have been living beyond a dream. It’s too much to comprehend. The people who choose to spend their hard-earned money on our beer or take the time, money and effort to listen to me lecture in my Marketing Craft Beer class at SDSU are the ones whose hands I would love to shake in the next month. So once again, from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU!

Sore Eye Cup Awards

The 5th Annual Sore Eye Cup, an award for the best regularly produced, independent San Diego beer, was presented to Benchmark Brewing’s Matt and Rachael Akin for their Oatmeal Stout. The announcement party took place at downtown’s Quad Ale House in early August. Benchmark’s Oatmeal Stout beat out other finalists Clever Hoppy Name and Mulligan from Second Chance, Freight Damage from Division 23, Clearly Juice from Pariah, Windows Up from Alpine, Chasing Citra from

SEPTEMBER 2017

Resident, Aurora Hoppyalis from Karl Strauss, Hop-Fu! from North Park, and Dankness Visible from Burning Beard. After an internet voting system decided these top 10, the beers were judged, blindly, by a mixed panel of professionals and amateurs. Last year’s top beer was Second Chance Beer Company’s Tabula Rasa. AleSmith’s Speedway Stout won in 2015, as well as the first annual cup in 2013. Alpine’s Nelson IPA was 2014’s winner. Attendees at the ceremony this year participated in raffles and donated more than $500, plus four barrels of food, to local nonprofit Mama’s Kitchen. The Sore Eye Cup was sponsored by local draft systems company TapCraft LLC. •
