This episode is one of our San Diego BeerTalk Shorts. We recorded an episode with What’s on Draft? and decided to record a separate segment in the middle and release that now. The What’s on Draft? episode will be out in a few weeks to coincide with the release of their new video series. In this short we talk about the #IndieBeer hash tag we’ve been using over the last few months. We were interviewed about this hash tag in the San Diego Reader magazine. Around the same time we were also interviewed about the proposed 10 Barrel brew pub that could open in San Diego near Monkey Paw.
The combination of the two articles blew up in social media and we received some positive and negative feedback. There were assumptions made on social media and we were not ready to properly respond to the criticism. We decided to take some time and talk more about this on the show. While we feel this explains more about what #IndieBeer means to us, we know this conversation is not over. We welcome further conversation about this, but please leave the personal attacks out.
