Episode #38: Guild Fest VIP Brewer Takeover – San Diego Beer Week



We were invited by the San Diego Brewers Guild to do a show during the VIP Brewers Takeover.  We are very happy the Brewers Guild let us come and record during the festival.  As with any festival, there is a lot of crowd noise and music going on in the background.  Our recording area was right in the thick of it all and the music stage was a mere 300 feet away.  Please excuse the noise in this episode.  We talked a little bit about current news and interviewed a few friends while we were there.  We also answer the question from last’s weeks voicemail from Constantine about how a brewery should choose a distributor.

Into the News:

The owners of The Cork and Craft recently announced that they will undergo a $1 million expansion of the restaurant.  This will include Abnormal Beer Company and Abnormal Wine Company.  Article by the West Coaster.

Indian Joe Brewing is re-opening in Vista.  It will be two stories and coming in at 18,000 square feet. This will allow for the installation of a 15-barrel brewing system from Premier Stainless.  Article by the West Coaster.

What’s Tappening

We talk about our past week (or so) of drinking.
