The horror I continue to be horrified by the apparent ascendance of Trump-and his growing horde of followers [‘Glee club,’ Sept. 9]. I’m even more horrified by the lack of appropriate response from the so-called media, who are for the most part almost giddy and gleeful at the spectacle. Sickening. I am happy that Tom Gogola asked whether Jimmy Fallon would dare to question Trump on his

undocumented immigrant workers, during his 9/11 guest appearance. Ha! Of course not!! There’s so much ‘oppo research’ on Trump--just ask Pulitzer Prizewinning economist David Cay Johnston, who has “21 Questions for Trump” that are revelatory. I await a journalist with the balls to really confront Trump, face to face. —B. Hamme

A new medical cannabis bill, expected to get Jerry Brown’s signature, remains opposed by the Drug Policy Alliance.

No cannabis do Drug Policy Alliance opposes new medical cannabis act By Tom Gogola


he Medical Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act of 2015 was hashed out of three separate and distinct medical cannabis bills that came before the California legislature this session; late last week a final bill emerged that’s expected to get the Jerry Brown signature.

While a sense of relief settles over the state’s medical cannabis community—a statewide set of uniform medical cannabis policies is generally seen as a good thing—the emergent bill remains opposed by the Drug Policy Alliance (DPA), which supports decriminalization efforts and has been a great go-to resource for proponents of sane

drug policies, both here and nationally. The state has struggled to get its medical cannabis house in order since passing its landmark 1996 bill that provided access to patients in need, and this year was seen as the year that it finally would come up with a bill that could pass muster in the legislature.

The pressure’s on: A statewide medical cannabis regime is widely considered a necessary prerequisite for any full-on legalization push, and that’s expected to unfold via a 2016 referendum now in the works. If the medical cannabis act is a forerunner for what’s to come as advocates roll out legal-weed plans for 2016, it’s plain to see that the forces of law and order are going to have a big place at the legalization table. One of the sticky wickets in the proposed legalization rollout is: What happens to people who have been cultivating cannabis in the shadows and got caught and charged with a felony? If the medical cannabis language adopted by the legislature last week is any indication, old-line “mom and pop” growers from places like Mendocino and Humboldt counties are screwed. Therefore: “We’re not as happy as you might think,” says Lynne Lyman, the San Francisco-based California State Director of the Drug Policy Alliance, and for two reasons: The act would exclude individuals with cannabis-related felony offenses from participating in the new, legalized cannabis economy by denying them the licenses everyone now needs to get in order to grow and distribute medical cannabis. Lyman adds that the economic impact of this move would be felt disproportionately among members of minority communities who want to get in on the legalweed economy, too: Blacks, whites and Latinos use drugs at roughly the same rates, says Lyman, but blacks and Latinos are far more likely than whites to wind up locked up over it. “We tend to apply our drug laws disproportionately,” Lyman says. So who’s responsible for the felony-charge language? Well, that language has been a dogged demand from The Man, and you can sniff the hard-ass section of the act in question right back to input from the California Police Chiefs Association (CPCA), which had yielded a steady and heavy hand of law enforcement on recent efforts to cue up a statewide medical cannabis bill. Indeed, it was a CPCA-initiated flurry of late-in-thegame, tough-on-crime amendments to last year’s attempt at a medical cannabis omnibus that tanked the bill.

Lyman says that the DPA opposed the act and the toughon-crime bills that fed into it, but hoped that there would have been amendments offered up late in the game that would let those with felony convictions get the new state license. By all indications, as of our press deadline, that was not happening. Lyman also cited a part of the act that allows localities to set their own rules around cannabis as a further driver of their opposition. This piece of the act appears to be a legislative nod to the pressure


put on cannabis bill-writers by the League of California Cities: Thanks to that lobbying groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s efforts on behalf of localities, whatever the state medical cannabis law says, localities will still be able to ban patient access by banning cultivation and dispensaries in their fuddy-duddy midst. Patients in declared no-cannabis towns and counties would have to drive elsewhere to get their medicine, and Lyman says thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bad move, especially for disabled patients who might not have the means to access it.<

W Bill was driving on Northern Avenue in Tam Valley, headed towards Shoreline, with a father and son on their bikes ahead of him.

Can’t you just ‘spot’ in the paint?

Short answer: No. At Bertolli’s we guarantee our repairs for as long as you own your vehicle. For this reason, we want to do it right the first time. A spot repair can certainly be done (not by us), but in a few years, the spot will visibly show like a bullseye, because the original paint and the spot in will fade differently. We value your investment and want to repair/repaint according to the highest of industry standards, which means painting to the outer edge of a repaired panel.


Why do auto body repairs take so long?

Even the smallest repairs will take a minimum of 3 days in the shop. The first day, repairs are completed and primer is applied. The second day, the paint work is completed and let dry overnight. The third day, the vehicle is re-assembled and detailed for delivery. If parts are needed for the repairs, or the damage is extensive and/or needs frame repair, this adds days to the repair. Be sure you have rental car coverage on your insurance policy so you have a replacement vehicle to drive while yours is in the shop.

To improve the screening process, urologists have new tests in their armamentarium to better identify patients at risk of having deadly prostate cancers. These tests, including the 4KScore and PHI (Prostate Health Index) test, are more specific for high-grade prostate cancers and help determine those who need additional workup for elevated PSAs. In doing so, we are able to avoid biopsying every patient with a high PSA. A recent prospective study showed that using 4KScore reduced the number of biopsies performed for high PSAs by 40-50%, while missing only 2% of high-grade cancers. Less biopsies means less non-lethal cancers diagnosed, and less people harmed by the diagnosis of prostate cancer. While still early in their utilization and evaluation, these tests hold promise to potentially replace PSA for screening.

If prostate cancer is indeed identified, new tests are routinely used to clarify the need for treatment, thereby avoiding overtreatment. These breakthroughs include genomic tests (Oncotype DX and Prolaris) to evaluate the cancer’s genetic aggressiveness, and prostate MRI to better visualize the extent of disease and assess if there are unidentified lesions elsewhere. If deemed to be low risk, many patients can avoid treatment and enroll in active surveillance programs to track the cancer over time. If the cancer shows any sign of progression, intervention can then be undertaken. Currently, more than 50% of prostate cancer patients diagnosed in Marin County are enrolled in the active surveillance program at Marin General Hospital, of which only 30% progress to treatment while on the program. Therefore, treatments are reserved only for patients that truly need to be treated. Finally, if treatment is truly needed, localized prostate cancer treatments have undergone a tremendous evolution in the past decade. The advents of robotic surgery and sophisticated radiation technologies have allowed more patients to enjoy excellent cancer outcomes with easier recovery, and improved preservation of urinary, bowel and sexual function. Focal therapies with cryotherapy or ultrasound are the next frontier, soon to be better understood. The perfect treatment is yet to be discovered, however, men have better-than-ever chances of achieving cure without detriment to their daily function in 2015, and the landscape is continuing to transform. Of course, as more evaluation and research is performed on these exciting fronts, emphasis must be placed

on the importance of the patient and physician to share the decision making process in the diagnosis, workup and treatment of prostate cancer. Patients should be fully informed of the pros/ cons of proceeding down the path of cancer screening, AND, the pros/cons on NOT proceeding down that path, and make a decision for themselves. But be aware that this debate is constantly changing. The devastation seen in the past without any screening may have swung the prostate cancer pendulum towards over-diagnosis and overtreatment. However, with ongoing development of personalized tests and less aggressive treatments, the hope is the pendulum swings back to the point where we only target the men that truly need to be saved, while minimizing the collateral damage during that process.

Men’s Health Event Dr. Yu will be presenting more on the topic of prostate screening at Marin General Hospital’s annual Men’s Health Event, Saturday, September 19, at the Peacock Gap Clubhouse 333 Biscayne Drive San Rafael. This free event will also feature presentations by other health experts on the risks and benefits of testosterone replacement therapy and how to eat right and exercise wisely to stay strong in the years to come – all health topics of special interest to men after age 50. Registration and continental breakfast begin at 8:30 am; the event is from 9 am to 12 noon. Due to limited space, registration is required. Call 1-888-99-MY-MGH (1-888996-9644).

he quandary of prostate cancer screening has been long debated even before the United States Preventive Task Force issued recommendations against PSA (prostate specific antigen) testing in 2012. Without question, prostate cancer deaths have experienced a tremendous decline since the introduction of the PSA blood test in the 1980’s. However, PSA screening also identified non-lethal cancers that never posed a health risk to the patient in the first place. Their treatment with radiation, surgery or hormone therapy often led to problematic side effects such as urinary incontinence, erectile dysfunction or bowel dysfunction. In 2015, while this debate is far from over, new advances in screening, patient selection, and treatment options allow more men to realize the benefit of prostate cancer screening while minimizing the harm.

Murder and mayhem MSC presents compelling revival of ‘Richard III’ By Charles Brousse


that the people who frequented his Elizabethan Theatre enjoyed watching murder and mayhem, especially when it exposed the foibles of the country’s aristocratic elite. The trick was to make this behavior so extreme that no one would mistake it for reality and then—just in case anyone was offended—make sure the “bad guys” receive their punishment. For two-plus hours, MSC’s Richard, the remarkable Aidan O’Reilly, hobbles about the stage, spreading his poison, only to end up deserted on the battlefield, offering to exchange his kingdom for a horse, as his enemy, Richmond, closes in to deliver the coup de grace. Everyone out there in the dark can now return home exhilarated by their brush with evil, but satisfied by its conclusion. Actually, Richard is such a complete monster—lacking even the hint of compassion or honesty—

promise of a sizable land grant, becomes Richard’s partner in crime, only to be dispatched when he refrains from immediately approving the latter’s plan to murder the young heir to the throne (Carl Robinett) and his cousin (Patrick Ewart), who have been unlawfully imprisoned in the Tower of London. Other standouts in the very large cast include Elena Wright (Queen Elizabeth), Livia Demarchi (Anne, widow of Prince Edward, who is seduced into a marriage with his murderer) and Phoebe Moyer as the irascible Queen Margaret. The production, directed by Robert Currier, is generally sound, though marred by what seems like an unfinished “concept” that mixes unrelated period costumes and activities. For all that, the strength of the O’Reilly-led acting ensemble makes this Richard III a worthy revival of a play that is too often treated as a grotesque cartoon.< NOW PLAYING: Richard III runs through September 27 at Forest Meadows Amphitheatre, Dominican University, San Rafael; 415/499-4488;

xcepting the comedies, there’s no scarcity of villains in Shakespeare’s 37-play canon. Prominent among these is a bent-backed cripple with a withered arm and leg, whose path to and brief occupancy of England’s throne are recounted in gory detail in Marin Shakespeare Company’s compelling production of Richard III, currently on view in Dominican University’s Forest Meadows Amphitheatre. A glance at the lengthy list of leading actors who have, over the decades, assayed the title role might lead one to wonder why such an unsavory character would be so popular. I think the answer is simple. It’s fun to pretend to be outrageously evil if it doesn’t end up generating a feeling of moral revulsion among the onlookers. Just as today’s filmmakers fill the screen with improbable violence to sell tickets, Shakespeare knew

that this balancing act is difficult for an actor to pull off. O’Reilly does it by avoiding the conventional theatricality employed by Laurence Olivier and many others in favor of a natural, disarming delivery of the opening, “Now is the winter of our discontent ... ” monologue and continuing with periodic progress updates about the mayhem he intends. It’s a clever gambit. The unexpected openness may soften the image and lead some to believe that we’re dealing with a bored, socially alienated young man rather than a dangerous psychopath. The kind who shoot up schools nowadays. As corrupt as Richard of Gloucester is, most of the nobles who surround him at the court of ailing King Edward IV (ably played by Michael Schaeffer) are equally so, making them easy targets for his machinations. Those who prefer to play by the rules, like Edward’s brother, the Duke of Clarence and the Queen’s friend, Lord Hastings (solid portrayals by Nick Sholley and Steve Price respectively), are among his early victims. Michael Ray Wisely contributes a stirring performance as Buckingham, who, spurred by the

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Wolfpackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; documents NYCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strange Angulo family By Richard von Busack Your Trusted Movers Since 1979


irector Crystal Moselle was on the street in Manhattan one day when she encountered the Angulo siblings, a group of longhaired, teenage boys dressed like Reservoir Dogs characters, in black suits and sunglasses. Over the course of four and a half years, Moselle got to know the boys and their mother, the gentle Suzanne, a reticent woman from Michigan who was homeschooling her sons out of the apartment building where they lived. Moselle learned of the Anguloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bizarre history. Their Peruvian father, Oscar, is an exâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Hare Krishna who gave his seven sons names from the Hindu religion. Oscar refused to let them leave the house, sometimes for a year at a time. One question the ďŹ lm doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t answer is why a religious maniac would allow movies into his home, when the power of cinema to mold and change people should be apparent even to the most blinkered New Ager. The boys got

their views of the world watching Tarantino, the Halloween series and Christopher Nolan. Besotted, these captives recreated the ďŹ lms as best they could with cardboard sets and duct-taped costumes. Moselle doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t identify the boys every time, and since theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re born a year or so apart and have similar mannerisms, we do get a sense of them being a packâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a pack of playful puppies. Any actual violence between the cooped-up teens is kept offscreen, as is the commentedupon violence between Oscar and Suzanne. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clear that discretion was the price of Moselleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s access. The directorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s camera feasts on the unselfconscious male beauty of these adolescents. The ďŹ lm has great goofy charm during a trip to Coney Island. But thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an element of manipulation in the way Moselle frames this family historyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;in essence, a story of appalling child abuseâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;as a tale of success, complete with a happy ending down on the farm. <

After several years playing locally, in 2005 Collins and Zee decided to move to Austin, Texas, “the live music capitol of the world,” and stayed there for 10 years. They also did a lot of touring and played with many different musicians, including Willie Nelson. Collins and Zee returned to the Bay Area this past December, joining up with the original members of the band—Pete Franco on bass, Dana Miller on drums, and new “Trucker,” John Varn on keyboards. They are currently in the process of writing songs for a new album, and plan to travel less and play more locally. “It’s just been so great to be back ... especially if you’ve been in Texas for 10 years,” Collins says. “I loved Austin too, but the Bay Area is such a feast for the senses and it is so beautiful—I love it here.” Dr. John shares the same sentiment. “It’s a double blessing to be back in Cali to help,” he writes of Sound Summit.<

Dr. John the Nite Tripper is known for his theatrical style.

Since that time, over a span of more than 40 years, Dr. John hasn’t slowed down, and has no intention of doing so anytime soon. His current tour will take him to more than 25 cities across the U.S. and Europe. Sound Summit, produced by Michael Nash, will also feature local bands that include Southern rock country blues band, The Mother Truckers, fronted by singer/guitar player Teal Collins and her husband, singer/guitarist Josh Zee, who met at an open mic night and blues jam in San Rafael in 2000. The band is known for its high-energy, good-time, rockin’, honky-tonk performances, and what Collins calls the “chick and dude” dynamic between herself and Zee. They share the singing and songwriting, and try to write songs that are “fun, interesting and never hit all the clichés.” Their unconventional style is reflected in many of their song and album titles, like “Break-Up Sex,” and “Let’s All Go to Bed.” “One time we were joking around,” Collins says over the phone, “and we said, ‘We should call this album ... Totally Unmarketable Music!’” Collins, who has recorded sessions for Grammy Award-winning producer Narada Michael Walden and has received Gold and Platinum albums for her work on albums by Shanice and Third Eye Blind,

Sound Summit, Saturday, September 19, 11am to 7pm (doors open at 10am) at the Mountain Theater, Ridgecrest Blvd. in Mt. Tam State Park;

Dr. John graces the stage with a long, braided ponytail, draped in beads and feathers, and frequently decorates his piano with skulls— part of his signature voodoo-mixedwith-mysticism, signature N’ Orleans style. The “Doctor” came to California in the ’60s, and became a busy session player in L.A. with the nowfamous “Wrecking Crew,” playing anonymously on recordings that became hits for anyone from Van Morrison to the Rolling Stones. “I do have a history of music in California—that’s where I recorded my first two Dr. John albums as a solo artist,” he writes. It was then that he decided to launch a solo career and developed his iconic persona of Dr. John the Nite Tripper—inspired by a mysterious spiritual healer named Dr. John who came to New Orleans from Haiti.

love music too much to stop,” writes Mac Rebennack (aka Dr. John), via email. “It feeds my soul and I hope it feeds the spirit of other people too.” He and his band, the Nite Trippers, are on the list of stellar musicians set to perform this Saturday at Sound Summit, a daylong rock festival and benefit for Mt. Tamalpais State Park. Six-time Grammy Award-winner Dr. John was an icon in the ’70s, known for his distinctive gravellygrowly voice, and Southern-style, bluesy rock music. He grew up in New Orleans, where his father owned an appliance/record store, and got exposed to a multitude of musical styles—jazz, blues, New Orleans R&B and Creole, which could only evolve in such a cultural melting pot of a city, and would come to influence and shape his immediately recognizable sound. Known for his colorful style,

The Mother Truckers are known for their high-energy, Southern country-rock style.

Celtic cheers Baeltane Brewing a haven for beer lovers By Tanya Henry


here are no large flat-screen TVs at Novato’s Baeltane Brewing pub and tasting room. “We want people to talk to each other,” explains Cathy Portje, who along with her partner and brewer Alan Atha own and operate their two-and-a-half-year-old neighborhood brewery in Bel Marin Keys. A Celtic theme runs through the small, inviting storefront, where a few chunky wooden tables, a four-seat bar and outdoor patio can seat up to 30 people. Twelve gleaming tap handles emblazoned with the brewery’s distinctive name leave no question that this is a beer lover’s haven, and everything from the lettering on their labels, to their outdoor sign gives a nod to the couple’s love for all things Gaelic. “I think each one of our beers has its own personality,” says Portje, deciphering their tagline, “A Tale in Every Glass.” The couple focuses on Belgian-style ales, including their most popular brew, Citroen Farmhouse, a perfect hot weather beer with tangy citrus notes and wheat overtones. Their golden-hued Luminesce Tripel has an alcohol content of 10 percent and offers a potent, malty experience that is

expected from this style of Belgian beer. Given our love of IPAs in this region, it’s not surprising that Baeltane’s Rumpelstiltskin Double IPA is one of their best sellers. As far as breweries go, Baeltane is small. They have a three-barrel system with a 23-barrel fermentation capacity. But size is relative—it wasn’t that long ago that Portje and Atha were making beer out of their home. After entering a number of competitions—and specifically one during San Francisco Beer Week— they received so much positive feedback that they decided to step it up from their garage to a professional operation. While Atha is busy with new recipes and brewing, Portje runs the tasting room and financial side of the business. She hasn’t quit her day job as a medical social worker in Walnut Creek, but it likely won’t be long before the word gets out about these tasty Lowcountry-style brews right here in our own backyard. < Baeltane Brewing & Tasting Room, 401-B Bel Marin Keys Blvd., Novato; 415/883-2040;

Mill Valley Beerworks

Mill Valley Beerworks serves up culinary creations far from the typical bar bites.


Gastro station Beerworks breaks the pub-grub mold By Tom Gogola


ub-grub ... bar bites ... tavern trayf ... There are only so many ways to generalize about the eats you’ll find at your typical beer joint. There’s nothing wrong with pulling up to the stool at Dino’s Dive to be greeted with a Bud and a choice from the usuals: Burgers and wings, potato skins gloopy with the cheddar, the mozzarella-marinara dippity-doo-dah routine, maybe some stuffed mushrooms or a cuppa that greasy turkey soup. You know the score. Well, Mill Valley Beerworks gives the slip to those saloonslop conventions. It’s a low-lit and sleekly pub-like place on the quieter end of Throckmorton Avenue in Mill Valley, that splits the difference between pleasuring a haute-hops scene and embracing Marin County’s convivial kickback sensibility. There’s a burger on the menu, but I have a feeling that Beerworks doesn’t necessarily want you to order it. See, the Beerworks baconcheeseburger is going to set you

back $18—pricey!—and represents the only gesture in the direction of pub-grub. Oh, it’s pleasing, don’t get me wrong. There’s a slab of bacon to chew on, a sharp slather of aioli dressing and a pleasantly greasy brioche bun. Order the burger and you’ll be hard-pressed to work through half the fries in front of you. Especially after you’ve just taken a tour through half the items on the small-plates menu—which are anything but small. Let’s just dive right in. A crisp, cool salad, the Little Gem Caesar ($12), features romaine fronds and thin ribbons of kale and romaine in a toss brought to crunchy pleasure with seasoned breadcrumbs. This was shareable for two and with a slightly redolent backbite of anchovy, bespeaking Caesarian authenticity. Mill Valley Beerworks, 173 Throckmorton Ave., Mill Valley; 415/888-8218;

Then on to a wooden bowl of wee mussels brimming in a fennel and garlic broth ($12). The mussels were firm, plump and clean—nary a grain of sand or off-flavor bivalve in the mix—and the rich, slippery broth was made for slurping, spooning or otherwise sopping with hearty hunks of levain toast. A classic. If you had to pick a small-plate comparison dish with which to compare the burger, it would be the maitake mushroom toast ($14). It’s a signature item, a heap of thinly sliced, char-flavored mushrooms over toast with some ricotta and beet greens. It’s meaty like the burger, yet suitable for vegetarians. And then there was the burrata. The burrata ($10) is an oozy dollop of made-from-mozzarella soft cheese, here served with coins of marinated beet root, red quinoa, and sesame and poppy seeds. The numerously noncompeting textures and flavors conspired to win this dish the most points for complexity. Off the mains, we had to try the halibut. A little pricey at $28, given the diminutive filet, an iron-shaped offering roasted to golden-brown goodness and served over shelling beans and heirloom tidbits of broccoli di cicco. There’s a starters menu at Beerworks—and, no, you aren’t going to be able to order fries and be done with it. Try a couple of cheese choices ($7 each). The Wabash Cannonball was a soft, round wad of goat cheese served with peach jam. The cheese was rich without being overly goaty. The Smokey Blue, from Rogue Creamery in Oregon, was the standout choice between the two— smoked over hazelnuts and served with a half fig. Beerworks is basically a sister restaurant of the new Fort Point Beer Company, founded in 2014 in San Francisco by some young cats, and the menu offers options from the house selection and from guest brewers. Two of the owners had previously opened Beerworks in 2010.

The four-beer sampler for $12 is a good deal and better still for Beerworks’ restraint in the department of suggested “beer pairings.” That’s kind of a twee gesture that has no place in a pub, even a gastro-pub like Beerworks. I stayed with the house brews. Fort Point’s KSA holds up the lightand-satisfying-ale end of the deal. The St. Francis Belgian offered subtle and nearly metaphysical undertones of molasses, as advertised; by contrast, the Treble Hook rye was sharp and pointed— like its namesake says it ought to be. Beerworks Black was stout-like and delivered on promised notes of toffee. You’re wondering about service and the general vibe here? My guest and I arrived at Beerworks at 8pm and perched at a two-top in the front window, where we could overlook Throckmorton and the Beerworks crowd. There was a full house when we got there, and a full house when we waddled out around 10:30pm. And it was mostly the same full house. In that time I saw a total of one group exit the restaurant. Our waitress confirmed that Beerworks has staying power in spades. You’ll want to linger. The night wore on and we lingered over port and dessert. A dark chocolate torte ($8) for me; for my friend, a dollop of elderflower mascarpone ($8) over sliced melon, rendered sushi-roll style. The mild, creamy mascarpone only served to remind us of the burrata. We lingered some more and on the way out the door, the crew fired up some music: Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs singing that great song—you know the one. It was the perfect accompaniment to dance out the door to as we spilled into the cool Marin night: “Wait!! They don’t love you like I do! Wait!!”<

What kind of beers could people make with the supplies? Anything, really. I’d say probably the most popular beers now are hoppy beers like IPAs, so people make a lot of those. But it’s really just whatever kind of beer you want to make. There’s nothing really harder or easier about making different beer styles—it’s just that there are different ingredients.

What’s the experience of your customers like?

J & M offers everything from brewing equipment to cheesemaking supplies.


Home front fermentation Your personal beer starts here By Molly Oleson


t J & M Brewing Supplies, which opened in Novato in May of 2012, you’ll find everything you need to make your very own homemade brew, whether you favor IPAs or wild ales. Co-owner Shawn Cochran, 31, tells us what it’s like to brew, how fun it is to share his love of brewing and what it takes to get started.

Why did you open J & M Brewing Supplies in Marin? I came on as an owner a little bit later. Marty Wall and Joe Capone are the other two owners. They had the idea to start it here because basically Joe lived in Sonoma, and he used to have to drive all the way down to Berkeley to get supplies and there just wasn’t a shop in all of Marin. And he thought it would be a good idea to open one because, you know, he liked to brew.

What’s your mission at the store? To provide good, fresh ingredients for brewing. And actually not even just brewing—we do winemaking and cheesemaking as well. And to be here to give advice, and to help people out with fermentation.

What’s the interest in homebrewing like in Marin? High—just like it is everywhere. Beer has become very popular the last 10 or 15 years, and people realize that you can make stuff at home that’s just as good, if not better, than the best beers you can buy at the store. So yeah—really popular hobby right now.

What kind of stuff do you sell? Ingredients, supplies—so the main things are malts, and malt extracts, and hops and yeast. But all sorts of different stuff, too— different sugars and additives—a wide range. Hopefully anything you would need to ferment beer, wine and cheese.

Great. Our shop, you know, it’s not like going to a place where you have to go; it’s a hobby store, it’s a place that people are generally excited about because it’s something that they choose to do. So our customers are great—they’re happy, they’re there, they’re asking questions, they’re having a good time. We love our customers.

Do you see a range of experience when it comes to brewing? Oh yeah, absolutely. From someone who’s just always had it in their mind that they might want to brew beer and they finally drop by our shop, and they want to know how it’s done … When I decided to brew beer, I had no idea how to do it. I didn’t even know what ingredients were in it, really, besides like reading off a Budweiser label that said, ‘Barley, malt, hops.’ And then we even get commercial breweries. So anywhere from the absolute beginner to the pro.

And you guys offer a basic kit to get people started. What’s in it? Basically everything you’d need to make beer at home. So fermenters … buckets or a big water jug. And then, all the stuff that you’d need to package it, like a capper and caps. And it comes with sanitizer and siphon equipment, thermometer. The one investment that one usually needs to make to get started brewing beer is a big kettle or a big pot to boil it in—because beer’s boiled, unlike most other fermented things. We don’t include the kettle in the basic equipment kit because we want to leave that choice—of how deep they want to go into it— up to them.

What’s the timeframe like for someone who wants to make his or her own beer? There are three different parts. There’s the brew day, where you actually boil—make the beer. So

probably about two weeks later for most recipes; bottling day, where you bottle it, and then probably another two to six weeks later is the day you get to drink it. So most beers are ready in four to eight weeks.

Do you have advice for people who want to get into homebrewing? There are definitely a lot of techniques and things you can do to make the beer better, but one thing that’s often repeated is cleaning and sanitization. So take care of your equipment. Basically if you can follow instructions—like out of a recipe for cooking—you can make great beer. It’s very procedural. A lot of the more artistic side of it is recipe development and stuff like that, but as far as just brewing beer, anyone can do it.

Are there other resources in Marin that you recommend? I mean, a lot of it, I guess, is go get good beer and drink it, and wonder how someone made that. So any type of craft beer store would be a great place to go if you’re interested in making beer.

What’s your favorite kind of beer to make? I like hoppy beers like a lot of people, so we like to brew a lot of IPAs. We also like to brew—this takes a little bit more time aging— what are being called sour beers, or wild ales. But I like all beer. I mean, a good beer is a good beer. It doesn’t really matter what the style is.

What do you like most about homebrewing? Probably pride in the finished product—knowing that you made it. Just like any other hobby, you want to be good at it. So maybe tapping the keg of a batch that you’re just really proud of and that tastes really good.

What’s your favorite part about owning the store? Well this is kind of like a cliché to say, but if you like what you do, you never work a day in your life. I enjoy coming to work every day.<

We’re looking for you.

We at the Lagunitas Brewing Co. hope you enjoy these genuinely handmade ales. A lot of hard work and enthusiasm go into every aspect of brewing this Mondo Ultra Mega Super Premium Ale. From building the brewery itself to putting the cap on each and every bottle, virtually every step was done by hand. Thanks for your trust, and as always: Think Globally, Drink Locally!... “And you’re full of ragwater bitters and blue ruin and you’re spilling out over the edge to anyone who’ll listen.” These are the words of our favorite Sonoma songsmith. They describe a cocktail of romantic despair wrapped in red flock wall paper and marinated in a soulful yearning. On the rocks. With a twist. We’ve all been there. The beer in this bottle, however, is none of that. So maybe Ragwater is a crappy name for the beer but we liked it, and so whatever. It’s always better to be happy than right. Mostly, anyways. Whatever. Forget it. Never mind... Anyway, we were going out to, uh, the, uh, you know, thing, and all, and when we got there, well, uh, the dude was like-“whoa man! I mean, and we were all, uh, you know- whoa! And stuff, and when I said to him, like you know, hey man and all, they, I mean he, was all “what?” and stuff- and I just told him what you said and all, and they were all man“not cool dude”, but whatever- so uh, we split and went back to my lair and just hung out and whatever, but the whole thing was, like, just Such a bummer and all but you know, it was cool and stuff, but you just gotta, you know, about the dude and all, like, it’s cool and you know, but what’s up with the “blah blah blah”? Whatzit got to do with beer and all? I mean, really, dude, whatever… There I was, sweaty and strung out, holed up for the third day in a cheap hotel with a genuine Juanita on my lap. On the lamb was more than a way of life. It had a smell, and it stunk like hops. Juanita shrieked something about an “Escoba grande con queso en mota para la pelicula…”, but I wasn’t listening. For now I was focused on the Undercover Ale clenched between Juanita’s knees and also how good it would taste later while she cooled out in the soon to be locked shed out back of Palmdale where the turkey farmers still run. Ale is thicker than even blood. I already knew this and I also knew that the dicks were not far behind and that ever at their distance they could smell everything and would never let up on me. Flip the dicks. Here come the bastards… Here they come…It has been broughten to our attrition that they're have been numberous spelling errors on hour various lables. From the cureous (as in 'steet') too the sublime (as in 'redempetion'). As a soulution to this problem we have retrained an imminent linguist from Stanford and have invested in a spel checker computter utilitiy. For now however, the thing I want to know is: Who are these werd police? Anyway? Who is the boss, ewe or the words? Huh? And besides, what dew words, let alone speling, have to do with beer anyway. I mean, who ever herd of some namby pamby pale lexiphile curling up buy a warm fire with a good book and a cold beer. This hole bussiness has gone plenty far enouph, don't you think?... Like Adam and Eve, Issac and Ishmael, Mao and Confuscious, Good and Evil, Day and Night, Hittites and Visigoths, John and Lorena, or Groucho and Moe, Ales and Lagers are as different as can be. Still we must love each for who they are, separately but equally, with liberty, and justice for all. Cheers!... Those among you who have visited a brewery already know. Those who have not can not imagine. It is said that it takes a lot of beer to make great wine. What then does it take a lot of to make great beer? Answer: Human flesh, and lots of it. Not in the beer, of course, but on the blisteringly hot sides of the whirlpool tank, or on the spinning shaft of a pump head. If you should see one of our club footed, three-fingered, cycloptic albino brewers on the street, you might be inclined to give them a quarter. But don't! These individuals are highly paid professionals. Masters of their craft, and committed to their trade with little or no regard for their own personal safety or physical appearance. Beer is a cruel master. Masters are cruel, and beer is no exception. Just don't picture their twisted forms as you enjoy their fine ales... Well, well, well. The head brewer stood opposite the massive brewing vessels that were his to command. His mind raced through the possibilities. What is the temperature of the malt in the grist case overhead? Was the hot liquor tank up to temp? Would the ambient temperature affect the final mash temperature? Should he compensate for the delta temp by running a little higher mash-in temperature? A single degree in either direction would have a life changing effect on both the brewer and the brewee. The beer could be too sweet if a degree high, or too mild and dry if a niggling degree too low. The character of the future beer that this batch would be hung in the balance. The brewer drew a bead on the temp-probe, the mash tun waited, and the world held its breath...

I just moved in with my fiancé, whose 5-year-old daughter stays with us part of the week. On the evenings she’s at the house, my fiancé just goes to sleep, leaving me to entertain her. (She likes to play endless games like “Guess how many fingers I’m holding up!”) Well, I work a full-time job, and I’m exhausted in the evenings. He and I got into a big fight because I said he can’t just clock out like this. He told me that I need to “set boundaries” with her. Is this really my job? I’m not her mother, and I’m not even officially her stepmother yet.—Dismayed


So what did he do before you moved in, just chain her to the radiator while he took a snooze? When I was growing up, I’d have to play with toys by myself or go out and poke a worm with a stick. These days, parents go way over the top in how involved they think they should be in playtime, and kids exploit this, extorting constant adult attention. Developmental psychologist Peter Gray explains that play evolved to be the “primary means” for children to learn to solve their own problems, overcome their fears and take control of their lives, and this parents-as-playmates thing may stunt kids’ self-reliance. Gray, like anthropologist David Lancy, points out that parents being all up in kids’ playtime business is a very recent development. Throughout human history, parents have been too busy doing the little things—you know, like trying to keep the family from starving to death—to read the hieroglyphic version of The Very Hungry Caterpillar to their kid 500 times in a row. It isn’t fair for your fiancé to clock out and make you Youth Activities Director. (I’m guessing that your profile didn’t have you listed as BirthdayClown777.) It’s also important that you develop a nice warm relationship with this little girl before you start going all Department of Corrections on her. Connection first, discipline second is the order in which the most successful stepparent-stepchild relationships are formed, explains stepfamily researcher Kay Pasley. Of course, it is essential to set boundaries with willful, ill-behaved brats, including those who are, oh, 45. (Fatherhood is a journey, but not just from the livingroom to the bed.) As for how much of a role you’ll take in stepmommying, deciding that is part of deciding how your marriage will play out day to day, and that takes discussion: What you’re each comfortable with, what you need and what seems fair. (Who knew? There’s more to marital planning than cage-fighting another bride for the hot caterer.) Once you and he figure everything out, you and your stepdaughter can play many fun games—starting with one of my favorites from Camp Tamakwa: “Let’s draw a pee-pee on your sleeping dad’s face with permanent marker!”


I’m a 32-year-old woman, and I’m dating this guy, but I’m very insecure about my body. The other morning, I needed to go to the bathroom, but I didn’t want to walk naked out of the bedroom. I told him I felt self-conscious about being naked. He didn’t offer me a robe or a shirt or anything, and I found that kind of insensitive.—Modest


They’ll hand you a paper gown at the doctor’s office, but that’s because you’re probably speaking to the intake nurse for the first or second time; you didn’t stay up till 4am riding her like a pony. This guy’s lack of “sensitivity” to your naked plight may also come out of how men generally don’t have quite so much insecurity about their appearance—and for good reason. Though a woman will go for a hunkbucket if she can get one, women evolved to prioritize men’s status and power over looks. (Think Henry Kissinger, Sarkozy, Shrek.) Men’s attraction to women, however, is largely visually driven. Women get this, so a woman can feel anxious when her tummy-wrangling garment is dangling from the ceiling fan and fret that her breasts, unbra’d, no longer stand up like two missiles about to be launched. But, as in this situation, when a guy keeps calling and coming back for more, chances are he’s feeling appreciative of what you have and not worried that seeing it naked will have him hurling in the nightstand drawer. Consider that a big part of sex appeal is confidence. Strutting around like you’re hot is a big step toward feeling that way. Try something for two weeks: Forget how insecure you feel naked and act as secure as you’d like to feel—tempting as it is to grab a pillow and back out of the bedroom like a cop when he knows the felons in the warehouse have him outnumbered.< Worship the goddess—or sacrifice her at the altar at

For the week of September 16


(March 21 - April 19) Looking for an upgrade in the friend department, Aries? We’ve got just the day for you—mark Sept. 22 on your calendar. If anyone asks, you’re busy. Make sure you hightail it to the largest gathering of eclectic people you can find—a secret rave in a warehouse in Berkeley or VIP bottle service at one of San Francisco’s best clubs will do. There you shall find a special someone, who might just share the same peculiar hobbies that you’ve adopted.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20) Put your feelers out there, Taurus! Reach out to your network and tap all of your contacts. A freelance project of exceptional magnitude will be landing in your inbox any day, but you’ve gotta set some intentions and get the motion going. Secretly jealous that your friend’s temp job at Restoration Hardware turned into a full-time gig? Get to gettin’ and ask about opportunities!


(May 21 - June 20) Facebook friend requests keep pouring in, Gemini? It’s that time of year again—Mercury goes retrograde on Sept. 17. This time, the planet pit stops in your house of love. If you’ve been checking your friend requests hoping to hear from a past lover—now’s the time to reach out to see if you can give it one more go, or if the damage has already been done. We hear flowers work wonders.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22) Has the road to your latest relationship been a little tough, Cancer? There’s some good news—Saturn retrograde leaves Scorpio, ruler of your house of love, on Sept. 17, and heads into Sagittarius. What does this water-to-fire change-up mean for you? You can only go forward from here; every roadblock you’ve faced in love since October 2012 is about to stop. Powder up and give yourself a fresh start!

Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22) Baby fever, Leo? Chill out, single lions and lionesses—not all babies end up with a social security number and living in your house. But Saturn does head into Sagittarius, ushering in a time of a make-it-or-break-it baby moment. You may decide to start trying, or you may decide to put it off for a few years. May we suggest you opt for a hamster and a fish?

Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22) You know the drill, Virgo: Don’t sign any paperwork or contracts. Mercury, your ruling planet, goes retrograde on Sept. 17, until Oct. 9. How does this celestial favorite affect your life? You’ll have to spend the month in reflection rather than action. Certainly, there will be big

moves brewing that you want to make, especially with planet of luck, Jupiter, in your sign. Spend the time channeling your meticulous side and work out any kinks before you take the plunge.

Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22) Don’t panic, Libra! Sure, Mercury is going retrograde in your sign, but it’s not as bad as you think. Avoid buying electronics and spend your spare time investing in your future. Life moves by so quickly—when was the last time you were able to stop and smell the roses without also noticing that you have to do your laundry and change the cat litter? Make a vision board on Sept. 20.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21) Who’s that in line in front of you at CVS, Scorpio? It’s your best friend from third grade. Sure, it might feel a little awkward—you were the only one in your hometown who didn’t get an invite to his or her wedding. But try to think big picture. This could be your chance for an epic reunion.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21) That project that is due next Friday, Sagittarius … yeah, it’s not happening. Mercury goes retrograde on Sept. 17, causing some serious holdups in your work sector. But fear not. While your boss might be temporarily irritated— there’s still hope for you: You’ve got Venus and Mars on your side in your work sector until Sept. 24. Take the heat, and wait for the dust to settle.


(Dec. 22 - Jan. 19) Planning on refinancing your home, Capricorn?! Boom baby, now’s the time! Sept. 22 is the celestial favorite when it comes to home-related matters and real estate. Just know that any call you make that day will turn out in your favor, and try to focus on the best part: Channel your inner Martha Stewart and give your space a makeover!


(Jan. 20 - Feb. 18) Gear up for a romantic weekend, Aquarius! You’ve got some of the best planetary lineups on your side: Venus in Leo in a perfect angle to Uranus, planet of surprise. When should you expect the entire house to be clean and a trail of red rose petals leading to a drawn bubble bath? September 22—be there or be disappointed.


(Feb. 19 - March 20) Listen up, Pisces! Your partner is talking and you’re not listening! Disagreements may feel like the end of the world lately, but it’s time to take off your shoes and put yourself in your beau’s position. Lend an extra ear and support through trying times, and since Mercury goes retrograde Sept. 17, try to wait to get engaged until the end of October. No signing any dotted lines—even for love.<
