BEER! SECTION

BEER WEEK IS BACK!! Beer Week Baby!!! It is the one week a year when we get to indulge in as many different events, and meet as many different beer people as we possibly can. Take vacation, call in sick, order up a limo for the week, but do whatever you have to do to make sure that you are ready to make the most out of Arizona Beer Week. This is the third year for the event and each year it gets better and better. Since this is going to be a long article, let us dispense with the usual banalities and get right into some of the highlights.

Beer Week officially starts on February 16th with the Strong Beer Festival. While the whole week is presented by the Arizona Brewers Guild, this is their real moment to shine. Without question this is the top festival in the state as brewers come from near and far, each looking to outdo the other with some rare goodies. For example, expect to enjoy these goodies: Alaskan Hopothermia, Breckenridge Well Built ESB, Abita Louisiana Oyster Stout (yes oysters), Bell’s Hopslam (and look for a special tapping of Bourbon Barrel Batch 9000), College Street Brother Dewey’s Date Night, Peche Mel, Hop Ruiter, Petrus Sour Red Ale, Grand

Canyon Shaggy Bock, Great Divide Peach Grand Cru, SanTanHopFarm Belgian IPA, Sonoran Figmentation (collaboration with Fate Brewing and O.H.S.O Nano Brewery), Big Sky OldeBluehair, both of the Crispin Princess Bride ciders, Left Hand Beer Week Sauce…and so much more. For details on this festival and to buy tickets, head over to http:// arizonabeerweek.com/13th-annualarizona-strong-beer-festival/. VIP tickets for this event sold out in about two days, so don’t miss out on your chance to get in the door. Designated Driver tickets are also available and for those of you that get nervous at the thought of strong beer, they Guild encourages brewers to bring plenty of lower ABV beer as well. If you are looking to get a little nutrition in you before the festivities start, hit up Angels Trumpet Ale House at 2nd and Roosevelt for their special brunch featuring SanTan beers at a great price. The brunch starts at 10:00 so you have plenty of time to make it to the festival even if you have VIP tickets. Do you know those folks that just can’t wait for Christmas morning? Sure you do. Well some of those same folks can’t wait for the 16th to start Beer Week. Those are the ones that are kicking things off early on Friday night. Look for Mellow Mushroom in Happy Valley to tap a special keg of Candela, a Rye based beer that was a collaboration between Green Flash and Cigar City. If you are in the Arcadia area, check out O.H.S.O’ Local Firkin night. Plenty of great Arizona beers served in the traditional cask method. If education is your interest, Whole Foods in Chandler will have their weekly Beer School featuring New Belgium and Left Hand Brewing beers. The real bonus here is that Left Hand founder, Eric Wallace will be a guest professor. Finally, if you like the late nights, Public House Garage has a SKA Brewing Pinstripe Promo starting at 8:30. There are also people that don’t want the party to end. That’s okay because

there are three after parties Saturday night following the Strong Beer Festival. O.H.S.O. has a Colorado Beer Night and once again Eric Wallace

the Dirty Drummer on 44th Street to present the Original Magical Promo. If you have not had the new Express Cold Shipped Pilsner Urquell, this is a

from Left Hand will be in attendance. When that wraps up around 8:30, Eric will head over to Yucca Tap Room to prove that Enough is Never Enough. T.T. Roadhouse in Scottsdale will be Burning the Candle at Both Ends with Abita beers including a Cajun food truck. That party should rock all night long.

great chance to try it. No other import arrives fresher and tasting more like it does in its hometown. But there is more, Taste of Tops has a Lost Coast Promo (and we hear Lost Coast has sent some special beers for the week), Sun Devil has an Abita SpecTAPular, Oskar Blues has a Brewski Ball Tournament at Little Woody and a promo at Coach and Willies. Finally, if you need something to eat, Ska will be the featured beer at a beer dinner at Mellow Mushroom CityNorth and the ubiquitous Eric Wallace will host a Left Hand dinner at new favorite Pig and Pickle in Scottsdale.

Sunday is a great day for exercise and SanTan Brewing has a bike pub crawl that leaves the brewery around Noon. Also at Noon, T.T. Roadhouse will be the starting point for a Scottsdale bike pub crawl. If you are more into keeping the festival going, head over to Boulders on Broadway for their annual Beer Fest. Smaller than the Strong Beer, but more intimate, spend some time chatting with the various brewery reps and enjoying a mellow afternoon in Tempe.

Tuesday keeps the ball rolling and one of the feature events has to be the Beer and Cheese Pairing Class at World of Beer. Teaming up with Global Beer Network and Wedge and Bottle Cheese Shop, the folks at WOB have an amazing six course pairing menu.

Things heat up on Monday with Magic Hat and Pilsner Urquell teaming up at

BEER! SECTION New Albion Brewing, History In The Making, Again! BY “KING” JAMES SWANN Hello again craft beer lovers, today let’s take a minute to turn back the clock and have a look at NewAlbion, the brewery many credit with starting the craft beer movement way back in Nineteen Hundred and Seventy Six. Founded by Jack McAuliffe with an eye on small batch high quality ales, New Alboin had a small but dedicated following of beer enthusiasts and curious locals. One such local resident was none other than beer legend and Sierra Nevada founder Ken Grossman. Coincidence? I don’t think so! As Jack’s business began to grow he quickly realized that banks, investors and lenders of that era hadn’t yet come round to his way of thinking and was our economy began to falter so did the disposable income of the local residents. It wasn’t long before the doors were closed and the brewery equipment was sold off to cover the expenses. Fast forward to Two Thousand and Twelve and Jim Koch, inventor of Sam Adams and head of the Boston Beer Company locates Jack McAuliffe with a proposition. Let’s take it from the top and do it all over again! Using the very same malt bill, cascade hops and even the original yeast strain, Jack and Jim have recreated New Albion Ale but only for a limited time.

Check out where to enjoy and purchase these local brands on “Beer Spy” at www.worldclassbeer.com AZWeeklyMagazine.com

I have been told by local Boston Beer representative Jason Rojas that proceeds from the sale of this brew will go to benefit Jack as he had fallen hard times after the demise of his brewery. I can’t think of a better benefactor than the man credited with starting it all. Look for New Albion Ale in six packs and on tap at all of your favorite craft beer destinations and taste a bit of American history. Until Next Week, Cheers!

Don’t worry there is more, Bell’s will take over a few taps at Mellow Mushroom Happy Valley and North Coast will be tapping three amazing beers including the very limited Barrel Aged Old Rasputin. Green Flash will be the featured guest at a beer dinner at Windsor. Also look for Left Hand Brewing at Taste of Tops and a Craft Beer Tasting at Priceless Primetime on Dobson in Chandler. Is it Wednesday already? How’s the liver doing? Hope you ordered a spare…I prefer an external USB liver as it is easiest to work with. But I digress…Don’t think you get a break just because it is Hump Day. Speaking of breaks, did you know that Lucky Break in Tempe has a pretty good beer list? New Belgium will be manning some taps there for a fun event. Draw 10 in Phoenix has an Evening in Colorado where you may see some of the stars of the Colorado craft beer industry in attendance. Oskar Blues has two events going on both starting at 6:00. Up in Grayhawk they are taking on SanTan in a taste challenge at Cold Beer and Cheeseburgers, but don’t worry the real winner here is you. Also, the folks from Longmont will be at Angels Trumpet for Slippery Trumpet night. If you are a bicycle rider, this is a great stop. Slippery Pig Bike Shop will be in attendance doing

mini bike tune-ups and will host a short night ride starting at 6:00. For those of you who prefer to stay and drink, there will be plenty of Oskar Blues on tap. As a bonus, Chad and Jeremy from the brewery will be on hand. More fun can be had at Flanny’s Craft Brewer Trivia Night where your favorite craft brewers will take you on in a trivia contest. Ground Control in Litchfield Park hosts Veronica from Bells in a SpecTAPular while Boulders on Broadway has New Belgium Wild Night with a plethora of sour beers on tap. Wrap up your night with the Mayor of Lodo, Tebo from Breckenridge and a nice cigar/beer pairing at Fox Cigar Bar, or step it up a notch and stop by Yucca Tap Room for Beer and Burlesque. Ska handles the beer part and the rest is left to Breezi and The Deviant Dames. Thursday has some big time events including Beer Dinners at Trophy’s and Cave & Ives. The former features the beers of Big Sky while the latter is an Abita Brewing Louisiana Fest. Mellow Mushroom in CityNorth will be tapping a variety of Rare Beers including Bell’s Hopslam, Oskar Blues G’Rauch, Ballast Point Habanero Sculpin and more. Abita also will be giving away some swag at Casey Jones Grill with a Name That Tune Challenge, and Whole Foods on Mayo has a night in Longmont with both Oskar Blues and Left Hand Brewing being featured.

will have some special beers on tap at Whole Foods Tempe and they may just have some special growlers to give away. And, Flanny’s hosts their annual Colorado Firkin Festival with seven amazing firkins prepared especially for this event. TGIF because we are finally winding down Beer Week.

They all bring great beer to enjoy and it is a great chance to relax with them. Two big tap takeover events are also going on. Boulders on Broadway has a Great

If you are still standing on Saturday morning, you can head over to Arcadia Tavern for Bars on Bikes. Bring your bike and hit up five fantastic bars finishing up back at Arcadia Tavern for a barbecue. If you are not up for riding, how about learning about bike maintenance? Handlebar and Grill offers Bikes, Brews, Bloodys and Brats which is exactly what it sounds like…a little bit of everything featuring New Belgium. At Angels Trumpet, it is an Afternoon in Belgium where you can enjoy some outstanding Belgian beers on the patio. Left Hand brewing hosts a Cornhole Tournament up in Anthem at Legends Saturday night and a promo at 1st Round Draft in Gilbert. Bison Witches hosts a combination canned beer promo and food drive. This event features the incredible trio of Big Sky (Big Don), Ska (Arlo, the Barroom Hero) and Breckenridge (Tebo, the Mayor of LoDo) and if you bring two canned food items for St. Mary’s Food Bank you get your first beer for a penny. Afterwards, the same three brewers will be featured in the Finale, a pub stroll down Mill stopping at random bars, spreading joy and goodwill wherever they leave…I mean go.

2nd Annual Eccentric Café at The Hungry Monk to feature 20 Bell’s Beers on Tap February 22nd from 3pm – Midnight!

Bell’s Brew­ery has an annual tra­di­ tion of host­ing Eccen­tric Day at Bell’s Eccen­tric Cafe in Kala­ma­zoo, MI. This fun, offbeat, crazy kind of party allows patrons and staff alike to dress up in crazy cos­tumes, eat food and drink a wide variety of Bell’s beer. There’s only one rule, come in a cos­tume or don’t come at all. That tradition, now in its second year, is continued during Ari­ zona Beer Week at The Hun­gry Monk in Chandler. Last year, Eccentric Café was a huge hit during Arizona Beer Week and this year The Hungry Monk will do it all again on Friday, February 22 from 3pmmidnight and featuring more than 20 of Bell’s Brewery beers including special tappings of Black Note and Bourbon Barrel Cherry Stout. Some of the other Bell’s Brewery beers featured at the Eccentric Café include Hopslam Ale, Le Batteur, Le Pianiste, Expedition Stout, Amber Ale, Kalamazoo Stout, Oatmeal Stout, Oberon Ale, Smitten Ale and many more. So, dig out your best costumes and head down to The Hungry Monk on Friday, February 22 from 3pmmidnight for this very special event. For more info, be sure to “like” The Hungry Monk on Facebook, http://www. facebook.com/thehungrymonk. Special Tapping Schedule is as follows: Black Note (6:30 p.m.) - One of the most sought-after stouts in Bell’s history, Black Note Stout blends the complex aromatics of Expedition Stout with the velvety smooth texture of Double Cream Stout and ages the combination in freshly retired oak bourbon barrels for months. The resulting harmony of flavors captures the finest features of all three components: malty notes of dark chocolate, espresso & dried fruits, all buoyed by the warmth and fragrance of the bourbon barrel. Aimed squarely at the stout and bourbon aficionados, Black Note makes a grand statement about the art of the dark. 11.5% abv. 100% of the proceeds from Black Note will benefit the American Heart Association. Bourbon Barrel Cherry Stout (7:30 p.m.) - Aged in freshly retired bourbon barrels for 6-8 months, this beer takes Bell’s Cherry Stout to a new level. Introducing the oaky, vanilla notes of bourbon to an already heady mix of tart cherries and dark, roasted malts, this stout seduces the palate. Bourbon Barrel Aged Cherry Stout has been made for draft on a handful of occasions over the years and bottled once. 11.0% abv.

The Scotchy is made (perhaps clandestinely in professional circles) by collecting a pint of the hot unfermented concentrated malt sugar of a beer mash (wort) and topping it off with a few ounces of Scotch. This may seem like a simple arrangement until you recall the many varieties of Scotch. Multiply that number by the thousands of grain combinations that comprise the 90 beer styles recognized by the

In the Middle Ages, beer was the everyday all day drink of choice for men, women and children. In the 1600’s, midwives created “Groaning Ale.” It was a special ultrastrong beer meant to ease the pain of childbirth.

The first “pilsner” beer was created in Pilsen, Bohemia, hence the name, in 1842. Now over 90% of the beer produced worldwide is pilsner beer.

Pull tabs on beer cans showed up in 1963 and lasted until 1975 when they were fazed out in favor of the more environmentally friendly stay tabs. The Babylonians (circa 1800 B.C.) had more than 20 different varieties of beer according to clay tablet recipes found by archeologists in northern Syria.

, BET YOU DIDN T KNOW

In A. D. 1200, it was customary throughout Europe to baptize children with beer.

One of the very first acts of the Continental Congress was to issue rations of a quart a day of beer to all Revolutionary War soldiers.

Vikings were huge beer drinkers. They would even stop mid-battle for a beer break, drink huge quantities of beer, and then rejoin the bottle “bare shirt” - armor and shirts removed.

In 1774, British scientist Joseph Priestly discovered oxygen after pondering the source of the bubbles rising from a vat of beer.

The Babylonians (circa 1800 B.C.) had more than 20 different varieties of beer according to clay tablet recipes found by archeologists in northern Syria.

BEER! SECTION

, ARIZONA S MOST PASSIONATE BEER PEOPLE, THE NEW BREED! Hello again craft beer lovers. Today let’s make a list, a list of the newest movers and shakers in the ever growing community that is Arizona Beer. Again? Yet another list of the very same people everybody mentions in every list every bloody year? How blasé. NO friends this is NOT that list! This is a list of the new blood, the up and comers and the very reason younger drinkers are turning to craft beer and filling the pubs thick as thieves. This list is in no particular order and many of these names may be new to your eyes and ears but trust me when I say not for long and you “Heard It Here First”.

Billy Clayton First up is a bloke I have found myself quite fascinated with over the last twelve or so months. Billy Clayton, a lad I met at the Hungry Monk, what seems like yesterday, had a lot to say back then about his goals and what he would accomplish. Lots of people talk at the pub but this chap followed through. In a very short time Billy has become a certified Cicerone Beer Expert, passed the Certified Beer Judge Program test, helped open a craft beer pub and restaurant in Tempe called Handlebar and now works as a representative for Odell Brewing here in Arizona. Trust me when I say you will be seeing a lot of Billy in the coming year. I dunno what you think? Does He make the list? I’d say so!

Next up, another newcomer is John “Hoppymoto” Alvarado. For those unaware, John and his family run

John Alvarado and own AZ Brewery Tours LLC, a company dedicated to DRIVING you safe and soundly on tours of all of the hottest breweries and craft beer spots the valley has to offer. Most expeditions include transportation, lunch or dinner, lots of beer sampling and a behind the scenes look at what makes each of our amazing local breweries tick. In many cases you even get an introduction and Q&A time with the brew master. Wanna know more about craft beer all over Arizona? John is your man! Moving along as I’m now on a roll lets meet Steve McFate, owner of Scottsdale’s first locally owned microbrewery, FATE Brewing. Launched with the idea that even night club centric Scottsdale loves local brew Steve opened his doors with a small seven barrel (14 keg) system that allows him to constantly rotate his beer styles and brew to the tastes of the community in his own backyard. The philosophy here is fresh, fresh, fresh. If he’s going make new converts to craft beer the product has to be as crisp as possible and always in step with his audience. I love the slogan Steve and Fate have adopted: “It’s In Your Hands”. I think that says it all about why Steve is important.

scenes Landon and HDE represent and or market all of them here in the Grand Canyon State. In many instances Landon is the proverbial “man behind the curtain” and you’ll most likely never meet him as he keeps his head in his work and his personal life personal. Just know that as long as he stands guard over Arizona, craft beer and local breweries will continue to get noticed. Landon has also been a big supporter of Beer for Brains and the Arizona Society of Home Brewers helping to keep them firmly rootedto the ground.

Up to bat now is Tony Piccini owner of local independent beer distributor Pitcher of Nectar (POND). He may seem too many like a small player in the scope of beer distribution here in Arizona but is responsible for bringing us exciting new beer brands such as Ass Kisser, Ale Industries, Rubicon and new local breweries such as Cosmic and Borderlands. Tony and POND have also now acquired the highly sought after Shelton Brothers portfolio meaning we will see lots more beer from likes of Cantillon, Mikkeller, Jolly Pumpkin and all of those silly Bad Elf Christmas brews. Gotta love watching the small local guy flourish among so many giants, especially when it’s so good for our beer community. RAVE ON Tony, RAVE ON! Next up is Jess Harter owner and primary columnist of local news and information web site Mouth by Southwest or MXSW for short. Need your beer and Arizona culture news short and sweet? What’s going on and when? What day was that new beer release coming from Four Peaks and was the brewery dinner last night really worth the coin? Look no further than Jess and MXSW. Known for years

Landon Evans Ok, the first repeat offender on the list is Landon Evans, owner of HDE Agency in Phoenix Arizona. Who is this guy? Funny you should ask, ever heard of SanTan Brewing, Grand Canyon Brewing, Oskar Blues Brewing or the Ameri-Can Beer Festival? Good thing you have because behind the

Rob Fulmer

as a food critic for the Tribune, Jess now has his own medium for the news in MXSW with one eye on local craft beer and happenings in the East Valley. Rob Fulmer president of the Arizona Society of Home Brewers has been quoted as saying “no one in this state writes more about local beer than Jess Harter”. I would tend to agree.

Ok, let’s move on to one of my favorites, John Paul Watts, General Manager at World of Beer in Tempe. Now if you’re thinking World of Beer is just big business, know this, it’s what John or “J.P.” as his friends know him brings to the tablethat makes it all so special. As a for instance there are always no less than Twenty Local Beers On Tap and J.P. has made sure to staff his bar with the cream of the crop of local beer gurus like Scott “HopHead Fred”, Patrick Schroeder of the Brew Bros. and New Times beer writer and Cicerone Zach Fowle. J.P. has also been a big supporter of local breweries Mudshark, Four Peaks and Sleepy Dog. Add this all up with his personal fondness of everything beer plus his ability to bring new drinkers in downtown Tempe into the craft brew fold and you have a man destined for local beer greatness. Since we mentioned Zach Fowle in the previous paragraph let’s move on to his resume. Zach is quite the busy lad when it comes to craft beer. In addition to being employed by and teaching “Beer Classes” at the aforementioned World of Beer, Zach also writes a regular column for the New Times and was one of the first certified Cicerone Beer Experts in Arizona. Another cool fact is that Zach’s writing ability garnered him an award from the Arizona Press Club for Best Human Interest Piece in 2010. Moreover, he has just returned from brewing at Odell in Fort Collins Colorado with a beer made just for AZ! All in all, one eye on beer education and the other on doing it creatively makesZach someone to know here in the valley if you have a passion for the art and science of beer.


Ian Hartwell Moving out to the west side it’s time to introduce Ian Harwell, a passionate craft beer master who lives on the other side of the tracks. Many of you may have never heard his name, but if you live out west Ian is your man. Currently employed at Ground Control, the first craft beer bar in Litchfield Park, Ian also moderates the Facebook site West Valley Beer Fanatics and is well known for his beer tastings and beer education at former employer Bevmo. If its craft beer way out west, you can bet Ian Harwell has his finger on the trigger and his pose’ in effect!

Jon Lane Heading into Phoenix let’s now talk about Jon Lane owner operator of OHSO a new craft beer bar and Phoenix’s first production Nano Brewery. Jon makes the list for a few great reasons. For starters he does indeed have a fully functioning three barrel (6 keg) Nano Brewery on site for brewing beer specifically tailored to his customer’s needs. 18 of his 36 beers on tap are always local and Jon is big on giving back to the community.

From fund raisers and his focus on all things local to free dog treats made from spent brewing grain, you really get the idea that Jon is about family, community and beer. Need I say more?

John Flanagan Jr.

Austin Santos Heading south it’s time to bring Tucson into the light as we meet Austin Santos. As part owner of 1702 Pizza next to University of Arizona, a pub with 52 craft brews on tap, Austin is a very big fish in what is now a rapidly growing pond. In my humble opinion, 1702 is the BEST Craft Beer Bar in Arizona regardless of location and it’s all down to Austin. His proximity to UofA also affords him the unique opportunity of teaching new drinkers what it means to enjoy craft. To give you an idea of this guy’s pullI have a short Anecdotefor you: Years ago while I was working as in house distribution for SanTan Brewing I came across Austin at a beer festival. He enjoyed our brew so much he made a few phone calls and took 20 or so kegs back with him. In a matter of days we had 6 new accounts in Tucson! The Point? When it comes to craft beer way down south, Austin Santos is the go to man and the fact that he owns the hippest craft beer location in the state doesn’t hurt either. Sticking with Tucson for one more go let’s meet John P. Gestautas another lad who lives south of the valley and certainly deserves mention in this register.As an employee of beer distributor Golden Eagle, his job is to teach his co-workers the fine art of craft brew. Paul was the first certified Cicerone Beer Expert in Tucson and also blogsand records weekly beer podcasts for 104.9FM ESPN Radio Tucson under the handle “Keg Keeper”. In his off time he can also be found working with local restaurants for the purposes of food pairing and beer dinners or speaking about bar management at NAU. I’d say this is one well rounded beer geek! How about you? Heading back to the Valley it’s time to chat about John Flanagan Jr. As managing partner and beer buyer at family owned, Tempebar Flanny’s,John and his father John Sr. have set the local craft world alight with monthly all out tap takeoversand a constantly rotating beer selection to die for. From locals like SanTan and Four Peaks to heavy hitters such as Port and Lost Abbey Brewing these guys leave no

stone unturned in their quest for the perfect selection of brews. Open for just less than two years Flanny’s is already a household name in every beer geeks little black book and much of that credit goes to John and his passion for all things brewed with barley.

Andrew Bauman

Now here’s a surprise! Next up is Andrew Bauman award winning home brewer and ever so patient teacher of this oldest of arts. When I say award winning, Andrew has garnered quite a few medals for his home brew in officially sanctioned competitions all around the state. That fact alone is interesting but what really makes Andrew important in this catalog is his talent for instruction. Andrew teaches (according to my research) the first officially city sponsored and endorsed home brew course in state of Arizona. Taking place in Chandler AZ. the course runs for 5 weeks and only costs $43.00! Best of all, this is a class for anyone and everyone over the age of 21 who wants to know more about this amazing pastime. Classes are forming now!

Not even open? Really? Bear with me here because the hype surrounding this brewery and its owner can’t be measured on the Richter scale! I personally know thirty or so people who have actually tasted the beer and the reviews have been strong but what’s amazing is the other thousand people almost willing to sell their first born child to get their hands on a bottle! A few cool facts, the beer will be brewed using many ingredients native to Arizona and Wilderness was the first brewery in Arizona to successfully run a Kick Starter Campaign. That kind of magic doesn’t happen every day and I hear the soft opening may come as early as April so stay tuned! Last but not least, rounding out the list is one more repeat offender from last year. Rob Fulmer, president of the Arizona Society of Home Brewers (ASH). Hmmm, where to begin, Rob, now in his third term (year) as president has brought massive growth to his organization and in turn to craft beer culture here in the valley. In working closely with the Arizona Brewers Guild and supporting local breweries all while keeping one close eye on the art form itself keeps him relevant on many levels. Promoting home brewing as well as the legitimacy of artisan beer at every stage and seeing these things as integral parts of each other has played a key role in why ASH is now the largest homebrew club in the United States and why everyone wants in on the fun!Due to Rob’s vision ASH are active participants in the Arizona Strong Beer festival, The Ameri-Can Beer festival and many other events with an eye on teaching the general public what it means to embrace craft and it’s culture. Whether it be bringing craft philosophy to the people or the people to craft philosophy, Rob is a man dedicated to the trade and always one step ahead.

BEER! SECTION

Now it’s time for some Girl Power! Kristine Bradley, known to many as Beer Kristine works here in Arizona for World Class, the craft beer division of local distributor Crescent Crown. In her capacity as a Beer Ambassador she has developed quite the following and has played pivotal roles in the development of the now famous tap takeovers at Flanny’s, in Beer Class on my own home turfand at the Hungry Monk as well. She’s now in charge of preaching the gospel of beer in downtown Tempe as thousands of new students from ASU flood the market each semester to listen. Kristine is a certified Cicerone Beer Server and also heads up Arizona Girls Pint Night Out, a group dedicated to bringing women into the craft beer fold and teaching everything from food pairing to history.Not too shabby eh?

So there they are the new breed, the up and comers, the ones to watch now and in the near future. By the way, from where I’m standing the future looks bright! Having said so, it’s time to thank those that have for many years fought the good fight to lead us to this point. People such as Chuck Knoll, Andy Ingram, Derek Osborne, Ron Kloth, Uwe Boer, Greg Eccles, Harold Sleeman, Anthony Canecchia, Teddy Golden and many more were our teachers and I’m sure I speak for everyone when I say THANK YOU for showing us the way. Until Next Week, Keep Calm & Drink Well!

Moving on, I’m going out on a limb with this one but I have a strong feeling he will come good. Say hello to Jonathan Buford owner and master brewer of the soon to be open Wilderness Brewing. You may be thinking what?
