Today, in fact, as I type, I am hanging out with Stephen, John and Brad from New Brew Thursday, Ashley Routson (The Beer Wench) and a few other craft beer lovers as we shoot video for the new “I Am a Craft Beer Drinker” video, the followup to “I Am a Craft Brewer” video that was released last year.
We’re shooting at one of the best craft beer bars in North San Diego, Churchill’s Pub & Grille in San Marcos, CA. This pub is known for one of the best craft beer selections in the area, often getting cool & unique brews on tap before other places and they have great food too. I am currently enjoying one of my favorite Stone anniversary beers, the 12th, the Bitter Oatmeal Chocolate Stout, on tap! That is just too freaking cool!
So anyway, this is a cool video to be shooting because it’s all about people who enjoy a good craft beer, not just for the great taste but also because craft brewers are known for using quality ingredients, caring about their product and how it is distributed and caring about the environment both in production and in recycling.
I’m up soon, after Ivan, the owner of Churchill’s. For now, I’ll just enjoy my Stone 12th and wait my turn. By the way, we’ll be headed to Stone Brewing next to do some more shooting and of course, get my growlers filled and then we’ll hit Pizza Port Carlsbad for dinner on the way home. Good times!
