Soda Recipes Cheers to Chris Banker and Ryan Reschan for linking us to some great five-gallon soda recipes from the Society of Barley Engineers. For more on craft sodas, plus hard root beer, craft cocktails and other tasty treats coming from local vendors, see pages 30-31. GENERAL SODA MAKING TIPS: * Carbonate to much higher levels than beer * Pre-carbonate the water, as it is easier to carbonate with more headspace * CO2 is dissolved much more readily at cold temperatures

Pomegranate Lime Soda + 2 bottles zergut pomegranate syrup (or more if you prefer sweeter) + 1 squeeze bottle of lime juice Top up keg with cold water, shake, carbonate to very high volumes

Cherry Vanilla Soda + 2 bottles zergut cherry syrup (or more if you prefer sweeter) + Vanilla extract to taste Top up keg with cold water, shake, carbonate to very high volumes

Rosemary Plum Soda + 1.5 gallons prune juice + Approx. 3 gallons cold, filtered water + 2.5 lbs cane sugar + 3-4 oz fresh rosemary In the keg, mix all ingredients, placing the rosemary in a steeping bag. Mix well, force carb at ~30psi.

Orange Cream Soda + About 8-10 oranges + 1 or 2 lemons + 1 can frozen concentrate orange juice, or equiv. orange juice. (avoid pulp as it can clog keg poppets, or just strain it) + 2 lbs of sugar (about ½ of a normal soda) + Approx. 1 tbs of vanilla extract (to taste) + Approx. 1/8th cup cream (any more will float to the top, which can be a good warning that the keg is about to kick) Zest all the citrus, then squeeze the juice through a strainer into the keg. Steep the zest in near boiling water for about 10 min. (about a quart to a half gallon is fine); add to the keg. Add water to about 4.5 gal. Add sugar and vanilla. Mix (force carbing in the keg by shaking does this well. Adding part of the water in the form of Ice makes it easier)

US OPEN BEER WINNERS Congratulations to Quartyard for their Orchids nomination

Each year, the San Diego Architectural Foundation holds the local architecture industry’s award ceremony Orchids & Onions. Nominated for an Orchid in 2015 is the Quartyard, a new craft beer garden / event space located at 1102 Market Street in Downtown. Quartyard contains a coffee shop, outdoor eatery, craft beer garden and daily food trucks. The Orchids & Onions awards ceremony will be held on October 1, 2015 at the San Diego Museum of Art in Balboa Park; for more info, visit www. orchidsandonions.org/nomination/2015/quartyard

San Diegan breweries earned more accolades in another competition. Since 2009, the U.S. Open Beer Championship has been held in Oxford, Ohio and takes entries from breweries all over the world. In 2015, nearly 4,000 beers and ciders from 20 countries were judged across 90 different style categories in a blind competition. Ballast Point Brewing Company scored the Grand National Champion award by taking home the most medals, including Golds for Pale Ale, Calico Amber & Sculpin IPA. Other SD winners include Mission Brewery, Stone Brewing Co., and Coronado Brewing Co.

FARMERS MARKET BEER TASTING LEGALIZED Governor Jerry Brown recently signed bill AB 774 by Democratic Assemblyman Marc Levine of San Rafael allowing beer tasting in farmer’s markets across the state. This marks another victory for the lobbyist group California Craft Brewers Association, who successfully advocated on behalf of breweries to first sell and now offer samples at farmer’s markets. The bill goes into effect in 2016; safeguards include: full discretion to farmers’ market manager on whether or not to allow tastings at their specific market; limit of only one brewery per day allowed to provide tastings; tasting area is a controlled and cordoned off area of the market; and amount of tasting cannot exceed 8 ounces of beer per adult consumer. AB 774 also allows nonprofits to receive donated beer for auction items.

NEW CANS The can craze continues! Beer drinkers in San Diego can now look forward to more canned options from two breweries. In

hile many brewers have been using the technique of only adding hops late into the boil for years now, it wasn’t until more recently that the technique was given the name “Hop Bursting”. Hop bursting has become such a popular hopping technique in recent years that it’s even being used by brewery marketing teams these days to describe their hoppy beer in press releases and on the labels of the beer and packaging. The popularity of the technique may have even started in San Diego with homebrew writer Jamil Zainasheff giving credit to AleSmith owner/brewer Peter Zien for pushing the envelope with the amount of late hop additions in Evil Dead Red. Stone Brewing Co.’s brewmaster Mitch Steele has also been a huge proponent of hop bursting with their more recent hoppy beers Enjoy By IPA and Go To IPA. So what is hop bursting exactly? Let’s get into that first. Hop bursting is a brewing technique that eliminates (or nearly eliminates) the use of the traditional 60 or 90 minute hop additions. Often called the bittering additions, the 60 minutes or longer timeframe in which the hops are boiled will allow for the isomerization of the alpha acids contained in the lupin glands of the hops. This gives the bitterness that will help counterbalance or possibly overpower the sweetness coming from the malt. But isomerization can still occur at boiling temperatures in a much shorter timeframe. With hop bursting there is no need to worry about getting all the bitterness extracted since you are throwing in a larger quantity of hops at the end of the boil compared to a more traditionally hopped recipe. I’ve personally never liked the 30 minute hop additions since I felt you don’t get the full bittering potential, almost no aroma (the boil with drive off all of the volatile aromatics), and modest flavor contributions.

With 20 minutes or less to go in the boil is when you’re going to start adding hops to your kettle. The timing and amounts are going to depend on the style of beer you’re making and your target bittering unit (BU) level. For higher gravity beers, you might want to start at 20 minutes to get some extra BUs while for lower ABV beers you could start adding hops as late as 10 minutes and still get plenty of bitterness. Use brewing software to play around with different times and amounts of hops to see what will work for the style. Software is great for calculating BUs during the boil but it gets less accurate when you kill the heat and add hops at knockout. Performing a “hop stand”, where hops are added after the boil has completed but before chilling has begun, can add great aroma and flavor to the beer. At temperatures above the mid 170s Fahrenheit, isomerization is still occurring and adding bitterness to the wort. Whirl pooling is another common process that is done at the end of the boil to help separate the wort from the break material and hops. It’s also a great time to add additional hops for flavor and aroma contributions. The temperature at which the hop stand or whirlpool occurs will have an impact on bitterness. Brewers will often cool their wort to below 190F, usually around 180F, to help keep the volatile aromatics in the wort while still remaining at pasteurizing temperatures. How long your hop stand goes or how long your whirlpool at high temperatures will have a big impact on your final levels of bitterness. You’ll have to play around with different techniques, times, and temperatures and find what works for you. Keep detailed notes on your hop bursted beers so you can better dial in the levels of bitterness and hop flavor desired. The hop bursting technique is great for American ales, particularly American pale ales. It’s easy to hit BU levels for the style

through hop bursting while keeping a good balance between malt and hop character. Session IPA, a style that has really taken off in recent times, is practically built upon the hop bursting technique with its low alcohol and malt character giving way to a blast of hop flavors and aromas. Really any type of IPA can be made through hop bursting but often times you’ll likely want a very small amount of hops going in at 60 minutes or longer to help pick up some additional bittering units. For the National Homebrewers Conference that took place back in June, BJCP judge Ted Hausotter’s recipe only called for a whirlpool addition of hops for the pales ales brewed to showcase four new hop varietals. Hops were added after the boil ended and held at 190F for 15 minutes. At only 1 oz. per gallon, the hops imparted plenty of flavor and bitterness to match the 100% Maris Otter malt bill. With hop harvesting season occurring earlier in San Diego than the rest of the country because of our climate, by the time you read this the harvest season will be in full swing or perhaps wrapping up around the county. Using homegrown or locally harvested wet hops are perfect for hop bursting a beer. With homegrown hops the alpha acid levels are unknown so it could be very easy to over bitter your beer when using them for 60 minute additions so dumping a bunch in at the end of the boil will give some great fresh aromatics and flavors. Just remember with wet hops the water content is higher than dried whole leaf or pelletized hops, so you’ll have to use even more to get the same effect. Wet hops are especially great in the whirlpool or a hop back. But regardless of the style of beer you are making, think about how hop bursting might change the profile of the beer to match your preferences. Sometimes matching a beer style is not intended and using different techniques and ingredients can help create a more unique beer. If you plan to use the hop bursting technique, plan on collecting at least an addition half gallon of wort to account for liquid loss with the mounds of hops you’ll be dumping in at the end of the boil.


To get you started, here’s a recipe I brewed recently that was hop bursted. To yield 5 gallons in my keg, I collected enough wort to hit the six gallon mark on my fermenter. Since everyone’s efficiency is different and batches sizes can change, I’ll use percentages, IBUs, and ounces per gallon for units.

GRIST: Pale Malt U.S. 2-row 80% White Wheat Malt 10% Flaked Oats 5% Crystal 15L 5% Single infusion mash at 154F for 60 minutes with a 60 minute boil. Hop additions: 21.5 IBUs of Mosaic 10.0 IBUs of Galaxy 5.7 IBUs of Azacca

12 minutes 6 minutes 6 minutes

1 oz. per gallons of hops in the whirlpool. I used equal parts Nelson Sauvin, Galaxy, and Azacca. A one liter starter of White Labs San Diego Super Yeast was pitched after cooling the wort and aerating with oxygen for 60 seconds. Fermentation at 67F and with a rise to 70F after 3 days. After fermentation is complete, dry-hop with 1 oz. per gallon of the hops used in the whirlpool for 6 days. Original gravity of 1.045, finishing gravity of around 1.007 to 1.009 for a beer that is just under 5% ABV.

COVER STORY

Local Beer, Local Hops It's that time of the year again, SD beer drinkers. Farmers – or more specifically, members of the newly-formed San Diego Hop Growers Association (www.sdhga.org) – are gearing up to literally reap what they've sown. Below is an incomplete roundup of our local farms and the breweries that plan to brew with their products; West Coaster will continue our “Wet Hop Beer Watch” online @ WestCoasterSD.com

HOPPORTUNITY FARMS

in Julian is in their eighth year of growing hops, producing Cascade, Nugget, Brewer's Gold, Magnum, Centennial, Golding and Willamette varieties this year. They also have an interesting hop that was brought to Julian by gold miners in the 1890s and used at the local brewery (where the museum now sits). Farm proprietor Phil Warren asked for permission to take some rhizomes from the wild-growing plot next to the museum; he calls the hop “Julian Gold”, and says it is reminiscent of the Cluster variety. Homebrewers can pick their own hops at Hopportunity on August 2, 9, 14, 15, 23 & 29; contact Phil @ 858.735.2977 for more info.

ZZ HOPS

in Ramona is in their first year of growing hops, and the farmers have been pleasantly surprised by how well the Cascade, Nugget, and Chinook hops are forming.

Bruce told WC they were worried about the massive rains in Ramona in July, but that not too many hops had been lost. ZZ Hops is planning to join the local homebrew clubs to spread the word about their farm. Over the next two springs they'll plant 1,000 hop bines.

NOPALITO FARMS

in Valley Center promises to be one of the most active growers and sellers this year. They're working with at least five local breweries, plus Tijuana's Cervecería Insurgente, which is planning a small, two-barrel Chinook and Cascade wet hop ale for their newly-opened tasting room. Two SD breweries will give their core beers a wet hop treatment: Fall Brewing with (TBD hops) Spirit of '77; and Intergalactic with Chinook and Cascade Andromeda IPA. Nickel Beer Co. and Monkey Paw/South Park Brew Co. are planning special brews as well. Tom Nickel at Julian's Nickel Beer Co. brewed with 42 pounds of fresh Cascade and Chinook on July 27 to commemorate his twentieth year in San Diego's beer industry; he started full-time at Home Brew Mart in August of 1995. The beer is called My Way IPA. Cosimo Sorrentino at Monkey Paw/South Park Brew Co. is planning two sameday brews. In the first and second weeks of August, he'll be in Valley Center at 5 a.m. to help start picking, before driving down around noon to start the brew while the hops are being

stripped. The first batch, at SPBC, will likely be more “English/ Northwest” and Chinook-heavy. The Monkey Paw Same Day XPA will feature Crystal and Zeus. Nopalito Farms has taken over the plot of ZP Growers, which kept the name and moved over to Fallbrook. Owner Lyle Kafader told us they'll be supplying homebrewers this year as they ramp up production.

SD GOLDEN HOP FARM

in Fallbrook is another busy bee this year. Rough Draft plans to brew a full Cascade variation of their Eraser IPA, which normally uses Cascade and Amarillo. Another Nickel Beer Co. brew will feature SD Golden's Glacier Hops in an English Bitter. North Park's Mike Hess Brewing is planning a combination SD Golden and Hops Meister beer with Cascade and Ivanhoe in the first week of August, as part of the Via Hess seasonal series. Culture and 2Kids will also likely use hops from this farm in wet hop brews. SD Golden Hop Farm also plans to offer wet, as well as dried, whole hops to homebrewers, plus tours and “u-pick” days in August (see SDGoldenHopFarm.com).

HOPATUL FARMS in Alpine, with ex-Main Tap Tavern owner Zack Summers at the helm, has big plans in the works. They're again collaborating with ChuckAlek on a wet hop beer, while also producing organic produce on-site. Eventually, Summers wants to host large events on his property; at their website you can see just how much they're working the land. QUAFF and Foam on the Brain members are known to make the trek out to Alpine every year for these hops, which include Chinook and Zeus this year. GOAT HOUSE HOPS

RENQUIST FARMS in Valley Center is keeping it local by selling their Cascade hops to Valley Center Brewery for a yet-unnamed IPA. They also grow Nugget variety. BEAR VALLEY ORGANIC FARMS in Valley Center is skipping this season to rebuild their hop trellis system. Certified organic for four years, this ¼ acre farm usually supplies Electric Brewing Co. in Murrieta as well as the farm's ½ barrel SABCO system. STAR B RANCH in Ramona is home to a massive German hop harvester. This year they're growing Cascade, Chinook, Crystal and Nugget. RED ALPHA HOPS in Vista grows Cascade, Chinook, Galena, Nugget and Zeus. BIG BOULDER HOPS

in Ramona grows Centen-

nial and Golding.

MISSION HOPS in Fallbrook grows Cascade, Chinook and Nugget. Many of these local farmers will be supplying local home brew shops with their goodies; contact them for more info (see directory starting on page 45). MORE BREWS OF NOTE: Ballast Point is planning a 60-BBL batch of Schooner with hops from Yakima, Washington's Yakima Chief – Hopunion. Port Brewing has had to put their popular High Tide IPA on hiatus for this year

in Vista is another farm in their first year of production, boasting ¾ acre with 700 plants spanning four varieties: Cascade, Chinook, Nugget and Zeus. Owner Rafael has been in talks with local nanos since this year's harvest is on the small side. Homebrewers can pick their own hops Monday to Friday from 3 to 7 p.m. in August, plus Saturdays and Sundays from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. (contact goat. house.farm@gmail.com)

with a new bottling line scheduled to arrive soon. Pizza Port four smaller brewpubs are all creating wet hop beers this year, utilizing Hopunion and Hops-Meister products. Ocean Beach: Get Wet, Coup d'etat; Solana Beach: Low Tide; Carlsbad: Raceway, Big Deal 2xIPA, TBD Lager, Dankside American Stout; San Clemente: Get to the Hopper, Riptide, Hoptoberfest. Mike Hess and crew have plans to brew a Chinook and Meridian “40 Acre IPA” with Indie Hops towards the end of August.

SABUKU SUSHI BRINGS CRAFT BEER + BREWERS INTO THE SUSHI DINING EXPERIENCE

F

or years, taking in the American pastime meant pairing sacred ballpark fare—red hots, peanuts, popcorn and other stadium staples—with American adjunct lager. And that was just fine; traditional even. It was the American way, because there were no other options and, because of that, people’s palates didn’t know of any alternative. Even in San Diego, arguably the craft beer capital of the world, Padres fans had resigned themselves to the fact that a day spectating the boys of summer meant settling for whatever macro brews had complete control over Petco Park. That is until fans were granted the opportunity to purchase local IPAs and the like from a handful of vending outlets within that Major League venue. Now, taking in a ballgame without a plastic cup filled to the frothy brim with a local craft beer feels like an incomplete experience, and settling for macros is out of the question. Now, allow me to take you out of the baseball realm via the powers of analogy, and into a sushi bar.

P L AT E S & P I N T S THE "RISING SUN" ROLL (SEE RECIPE ON PAGE 26)

For years, indulging in an evening of sushi meant pairing fine Japanese sea fare— sashimi, nigiri, rolls and other sushi bar staples—with Japanese adjunct lager. And that was just fine; traditional even. It was the Japanese way, because there were no other options and, because of that, peoples’ palates didn’t know of any alternative. Even in San Diego, arguably the craft beer capital of the world, sushi fans had resigned themselves to the fact that a night of omakase meant settling for Sapporo, Kirin Ichiban or sake bombs. Sound familiar? The only thing keeping bland versions of Pilsners and other adjunct-laden brews from dominating the sushi scene is the fact few restaurants specializing in that cuisine offer a taste of something better. That said, there are local restaurateurs taking their beer lists next level, and just like at Petco Park, craft is quickly engraining itself into their entire program, bringing the tastes of those eateries’ patrons with them via a new form of cultural food-and-beverage fusion. Case in point, Sabuku Sushi. Located in the contentiously gray geographic area that is University Heights—or is it North Park…or is it Normal Heights— Sabuku is the type of adventurous, modern American sushi spot that honors the fine art and lineage of the sushi chef without being afraid to think outside the bamboo box. This has made it a good candidate for testing how well sushi can pair with craft beer. It turns out they go together hand-in-hand, though that’s hardly surprising to readers of this column who are well aware of the broad spectrum of edible amenable flavors artisan ales and lagers provide. Earlier this year, Sabuku chef-owner Bob Pasela made the decision to overhaul his beer offerings. Now the restaurant provides a long list of beers, most of them local. Not only that, Pasela has taken the time to get to know the companies throughout the county that are furnishing him with their liquid wares. This occurs mostly through monthly brewery spotlight nights where brewers and other representatives from local companies spend the evening at Sabuku, chatting with guests and enjoying specialty rolls they had input on the creation of when working with the restaurant to come up with something ideal for marrying with their beers. At one such evening with Stone Brewing Co., Sabuku’s culinary crew developed the Smokin’ Roll to pair with Stone Ruination Double IPA 2.0—yellowtail and seared scallops, stuffed with avocado, tempura-fried shrimp and onions, and garnished with scallions, sesame seeds, masago (flying fish roe) and a smoky eel and bonito sauce. Also conceived was Zombie Bait—tuna, grilled zucchini and bacon rolled with filet mignon and shrimp,

topped with bonito flakes, kuro goma (black sesame seeds) and iri goma (toasted white sesame seeds) and a spicy “bloody sauce,” built to match Stone Pale Ale 2.0. But there are literally dozens of other pairings Pasela happily recommends. The following are some of his favorites to-date... Rising Sun paired with Mike Hess Claritus: This roll is a fun combination of shrimp tempura, crab, cucumber, salmon and avocado topped with crispy bonito flakes, shiro goma and scallions. The roll has a strong Asian influence and I like to think of it like a stir-fry rolled into one package. This blend of flavors pairs with the crisp, German-style Claritas. It is a contrast in tastes and cultures, but it works well together. Orange Crush paired with Modern Times Fortunate Islands: This is our island pairing. The tropical vibes of the roll flow well with the beer, which shares the characteristics of a hoppy IPA and an easy-drinking wheat beer, with a mango and passionfruit twist. The Orange Crush is identified mostly by the salmon and signature sweet Mandarin sauce. The pairing is strong but not overpowering. Grab your sandals, an umbrella and enjoy! When Pigs Fry paired with Arrogant Bastard Ale: Bring your appetite for this pairing. Loaded with two slices of bacon, spicy tuna and asparagus-battered tempura that’s battered and topped with a glazed bacon garlic aioli, sweet Mandarin and sriracha, When Pigs Fry is one of our most popular rolls. With all of that flavor, we needed a beer that could match it, punchfor-punch. This brew is a deep amber-red and fills your mouth with flavor. The hops and caramel malt balance works well with the bacon. Sun Di-Ah-Go paired with Twisted Manzanita Gillespie Brown Ale: There is a lot going on in our signature Sun Di-Ah-Go roll, which pairs well with the strong, bold taste of the beer. The roll is packed with spicy crab, shrimp, cream cheese and jalape


ños, and coated in sweet Mandarin sauce with spicy ginger aioli. The cream cheese and jalapeño combo is packed into every bite and gets washed down smoothly with care of the brew. Naughty, Nice & Everything Spice paired with Coronado Mermaid’s Red: This particular roll is a mouthful (literally) and packs a punch of spice and flavor. The beer delivers a fresh floral aroma and sharp bitter notes. It contrasts with the spiciness of the roll – but it works! In addition to notes for enjoying food and beer at Sabuku, Pasela has also shared recipes for one of the aforementioned rolls. It takes a good deal of prep work and some practice, but going through the motions along with a few swigs of craft beer should make it a fun learning experience.

RISING SUN YIELD: 1 ROLL - - canola oil for frying - - 3 to 4 shrimp (peeled and deveined) - - 2 to 3 cups cups tempura batter - - 1 half-sheet nori (seaweed) - - 5 oz. prepared sushi rice (short grain rice, rice vinegar, salt and sugar) - - cucumber, cut lengthwise into thin strips - - 2 to 3 oz. crabmeat (picked over to remove shells) - - 3 oz. salmon, thinly sliced - - avocado, thinly sliced - - lemon, thinly sliced - - ponzu sauce - - bonito flakes - - scallions, thinly sliced - - white sesame seeds Preheat oil to 375 degrees Fahrenheit in a large sauce pan. Evenly coat shrimp in tempura batter, then carefully drop the shrimp into the oil. Cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes. Remove from the oil and drain on a plate lined with paper towels. Place the nori on a dry, clean surface, rough-side-up. Spread the sushi rice evenly over the nori. Flip the sheet over and set 2 pieces of cucumber, lengthwise, in the middle of the sheet. Place the shrimp, lengthwise, in the middle of the sheet. Spread the crab, lengthwise, over the cucumber and shrimp. Close the roll by bringing the side of the roll nearest to you up over the ingredients, lengthwise. Applying even pressure, bring the one side to slightly overlap the other side. Use a bamboo mat to compress and shape the roll into desired form. Evenly layer the salmon and avocado across the roll, alternating between the two, followed by the lemon. Place the roll on a cutting board and slice into 8 to 10 uniform pieces. Transfer to a serving plate and drizzle with ponzu sauce. Garnish with the remaining ingredients and serve. ■

Editor's note: Brandon Hernández is a senior communications specialist at Stone Brewing Co.; the company's distribution side carries Modern Times Beer, but Hernández had not been incentivized to include either brand in this column.

onscious consumers are demanding high caliber, locally made artisanal products; this stretches beyond beer. Golden Coast Mead, for example, is gaining momentum with their varieties of mead crafted from California honey and Palomar Mountain spring water. Ballast Point will soon release craft cocktails in cans: Fugu Vodka & Bloody Mary; Three Sheets Rum & Ginger; Three Sheets Rum & Cola; and Old Grove Gin & Tonic. The San Diego Distillers Guild now has seven members: Old Harbor, Ballast Point, Kill Devil, Liberty Call, Malahat, California Spirits Co., and Twisted Manzanita. Coffee roasters and their craft beer collaborations are reaching new heights and hype. Even local ice creamery Niederfrank’s has gotten into the collaboration game, churning cream utilizing South Park Brewing Company beers. San Diego is a bastion of creativity and open-mindedness, and it's easy to see why. Another trend making its way around the county is root beer. While only Mission Brewery is crafting and distributing a hard root beer, several local operations are creating a non-alcoholic version for consumers. ChuckAlek, Hillcrest, Groundswell, Thorn St., Arcana, Ballast Point Scripps Ranch, and Stone are among those serving soft beer in their tasting rooms. We sat down with Bobby Oliver (Mission) and Grant Fraley (ChuckAlek) to discuss.

WC:

Give us the skinny on your hard root beer.

34 | AUGUST 2015

Oliver:

It's bold. It's robust. It has just the right amount of sweetness; it's well-balanced like it should be, even at 7.5% ABV.

WC:

How do you brew it?

Oliver:

We make a neutral malt base which is essentially a strong ale, and blend it with our proprietary root beer fixings. Brew it all together, carb it high to get a bunch of bubbles to recreate that same mouth feel as a soft soda root beer, and there you go. Boom goes the dynamite.

WC:

Oliver:

People are stoked. We already live in the biggest beer city in the world. People love to support their home town breweries. I myself use Ballast Point Mai Thai Mix and Bloody Mary mix because it's good, it's local, and there is nothing like it. We're just going to keep at it and see what happens.

What’s the response been?

Oliver:

Excellent. People are going crazy for it. When it hits retail shelves it's gone as quick as it hits. There's a few reasons for that. There's nothing like it brewed locally or on the West Coast for that matter. It's local and super fresh.

Fraley: It is exciting to share a house made soda, but it is also a responsible option for both our customers and their children.

WC:

WC:

Where did the idea come from?

Oliver:

Originally we started to brew craft cocktails: Mission Mule, White Peach Margarita, Blueberry Paloma, Frozen Tropical Punch, and Frozen Orange Lemonade. Given our location is close to downtown and Petco it was a natural progression given the requests from our visitors. These craft cocktails did well. This motivated the owner of our brewery who approached Mission Brewer Quentin E. Anderson about expanding these ideas; Mission's Hard Root Beer was born.

WC: What do you think is the future of these new craft concoctions?

WC:

Why do you serve Soft Root Beer at your brewery?

How is it craft?

Fraley: We make root beer by hand, in small batches, with natural ingredients, much like our craft beer. The recipe was artfully crafted for Nate's Garden Grill with quality and depth of flavor in mind. WC: What is the next step in craft beverages? Fraley: We'll certainly see more craft sodas offered alongside craft beer and craft spirits, which will propel cocktails and blends beyond canned Radler (fruited malt beverages). All of this should further the family-friendly vibe of many local craft beer spots.

BEER TOURING: I BELGIUM NORTHERN FRANCE

INTO THE BREW

n early July, I had the opportunity to dedicate several days to visiting breweries in Belgium and Northern France. Between the selection of imports and the Belgian-style beers that local brewers produce, it's easy to think that we have a good handle on Belgian beer here in California. In a way we do, but actually visiting Belgian breweries shows that there is another chapter to the story that you just can't experience from home. For example, drinking really fresh Belgian beers on tap shows a hoppier side that we almost never see by the time many of the beers reach us. Many of these breweries were built in a different era with completely different technology and design than the new stainless steel breweries that we are used to seeing at home.

1.

Brasserie Thiriez is in the small farming town of Esquelbecq near the Belgian border in French Flanders, not far from the furthest northern coastline of France. Daniel Thiriez bought the long-closed farmhouse brewery in 1996 and started brewing his own take on the traditional saison beers of the region, before branching out into such styles as American-influenced double IPA. I caught him glancing back at the old brewery building, now the site of the tap room and his family residence, as we walked next door to the new building he built to house a new, larger brewhouse. Thiriez's beers skew to the lower-alcohol, higher-IBU range when compared to nearby brewers like St. Bernardus, just a stone's throw over some wheat fields and the border. Sitting in the small taproom, which is colorfully adorned with local brewery paraphernalia from decades past, you really understand the meaning of “farmhouse brewery.�

2.

The St. Bernardus Brouwershuis bed and breakfast gives you the opportunity to spend the night in the old brewmaster's residence at Brouwerij St. Bernard in Watau, West Flanders. The outdoor fermentation tanks of the brewery watch over the Brouwershuis and the courtyard where you can drink any of the abbey-style beers that the brewery produces. St. Bernard brewed the Westvleteren beers for their namesake Trappist abbey for decades before the monks started to brew commercially again in 1992. St. Bernard still brews the original recipes and distributes them in the US under the St. Bernardus label. While the recipes might be the same, the difference in the beers here and at Westvleteren shows how much of an impact equipment and process have on a beer. The tall tanks that overlook the Brouwershuis produce a distinctly different character than the shallow open tanks at Westvleteren.

WESTCOASTERSD.COM | 37


3.

Brasserie Dupont, south of Brussels in the Wallonian province of Hainaut, is probably the quintessential producer of saison and one of the most impressive breweries that I have had the pleasure of visiting. Every piece of the brewery is immaculate and uniquely engineered for their specific style of brewing, from the brewhouse to the bottle conditioning crates. Their shallow, square fermentation tanks really epitomize their tradition-oriented approach to brewing. Brewmaster and fourth-generation proprietor Olivier Dedeycker explained that their family yeast strain, maintained in-house, needs the shallow, flat-bottom tanks in order to create the correct flavor. Fermentations here get hotter than just about any other brewery, hovering around body temperature at peak fermentation. All of the tanks are set into thick insulation, allowing for the same warmer temps in the winter.

4.

Dupont conditions their corked bottles laying down in their sides in a special warm room for extended periods of time in order to develop the correct flavors. Dedeycker explained that the long period (over six

weeks) of the extended yeast contact is key to their flavor profile and that the beers do not turn out right if left standing up or for shorter amounts of time. As with every step in the Dupont process, it isn't the cheapest or most efficient way to do it, but it is done out of an uncompromising regard for the tradition and flavor of the beer itself.

5.

The Dupont brewhouse, though modernized, maintains the original direct-fired copper kettles. The intense heat from the massive burners lends a deep color and flavor to their saison, which is brewed exclusively with pilsner malt. Dedeycker says that if they switched to modern, steam-heated kettles, they would not be able to brew the same beer.

38 | AUGUST 2015


6.

De Dolle Brouwers (The Enraged Brewers) have been occupying this old brewery in Esen, West Flanders since 1980 when they took over the facility that dates back to 1835 and was rebuilt after World War 1. The brewhouse is very traditional, with an open wooden mash tun, copper kettle, coolship, and open wort cooler. The beers ferment in open square fermentors and then lager in horizontal tanks. The De Dolle yeast strain is a mixed culture of yeast and lactic acid bacteria that produces tart beers with aging. Arabier, their blond beer, is not far off from a more traditional IPA when fresh, as they add massive amounts of whole-cone Belgian hops to the kettle and hop back. Their small oak barrel cellar, aging both the dark Oerbier and strong Christmas beer, Stille Nacht might look rustic, but contains some of the best sour beer I have ever tasted.

7.

The St. Sixtus Abbey, nestled into the farmland near Westvleteren is a picturesque setting for what has been called by many the brewer of the best beer in the world. The abbey is not open to the public except for reserved pickup of crates of beer once a month, but the In De Vrede pub, right across the street, serves the three beers (Blond, 8, and 12) alongside a selection of simple dishes, some featuring the abbey's own cheese. I can't say if the dark, rich and fruity 12 is the best beer in the world, but the Blond is exceptional for its hoppy bite and creamy body. In any case, sipping a 12 on the patio while watching the sun lower over the surrounding fields of corn, potatoes, and wheat is a fantastic way to wind down a day of visiting breweries in the Belgian countryside.

BEER REVIEW: B U T C H E R S B R E W I N G R Y E S E L E C T I PA BY IAN CHEESMAN

I need to get something off my chest. I have been somewhat delinquent in my coverage of Santee breweries in general. It's a bit of a hike from my locale, which runs in opposition to my welldocumented embrace of laziness. But my hesitation i s r e d o u b l e d d u r i n g t h i s t i m e o f y e a r. I j u s t c a n ' t bring myself to knowingly travel into San Diego's largest natural tinder box during the dead of s u m m e r. Yo u s e e , I c o m e f r o m a l i n e a g e o f v e r y flammable people (witches, heretics, people with chronically dry skin) and it just doesn't feel safe. T h a n k f u l l y B u t c h e r s B r e w i n g b o t t l e s R y e S e l e c t I PA , so now I can review it 100% combustion-free.

The first thing I notice about the beer is my visceral reaction to that Butchers Brewing logo. I guess I never paid it much mind before, but there's something unsettling about a pig calmly noshing on grains while cutlery loom ominously overhead. I t ' s l i k e a f r e e z e f r a m e j u s t b e f o r e J a s o n Vo o r h i e s bursts in to sate his bloodlust. That said, pork is delicious, so we'll call it a wash.

T h i s 7 - p e r c e n t A B V I PA i s a m e g a t o n c i t r u s b o m b , capable of immersing every man, woman and child in an aromatic fallout of dried apricots and orange s h e r b e t . A l l t h i n g s c o n s i d e r e d , t h a t ’s n o t a b a d w a y to go.

The brew has sizeable bite up front, loading the p a l a t e w i t h c i t r u s r i n d , w h i t e p e p p e r a n d a b i t o f m a n g o s w e e t n e s s . T h i s q u i c k l y g i v e s w a y t o O J a n d p e p p e r, l e a v i n g s y r u p y t r a c e s b e h i n d . I t ’s t a n g y, b o i s t e r o u s , a n d p o t e n t .

I think the perfect way to describe this beer is “intense”. Intense beers, like intense people, can be endlessly f a s c i n a t i n g i f y o u s h a r e c o m m o n i n t e r e s t s . H o w e v e r, s h o u l d y o u r i n t e r e s t s d i v e r g e , y o u ’ r e l e f t w o n d e r i n g w h y e x a c t l y t h a t 4 0 - y e a r- o l d m a n i s s o p r e o c c u p i e d w i t h Tw i l i g h t S p a r k l e a n d t h e a n t i c s o f h e r d i m i n u t i v e p o n y c r e w. I f C i t r a h o p s d o n ’ t g e t y o u a s m o i s t a s m e , t h i s I PA m a y s t r i k e y o u a s u n b a l a n c e d a n d o v e r b e a r i n g . B u t if they do, buckle up and prepare for a delicious ride.
