Thursday, June 17th, 2010

The Stone 14th Anniversary Ale will be released this coming Monday, June 21st and I had a chance to hang with head brewer Mitch Steele and learn how they came up with the Emperial IPA for this year’s anniversary beer. Dr Bill even joined in for his first taste of the 14th!

Shooting new “Beers With…” segments at Stone Brewing

Friday, June 4th, 2010

Today I’m headed down to Stone Brewing in Escondido for a couple of very special “Beers With…” segments. The first is with Dr. Bill Sysak, the Beverage Supervisor at the Stone World Bistro and Gardens. I’ve had the opportunity to get to know Bill and he is a truly fascinating guy that is truly fanatical about craft beer and my hope is that craft beer lovers all over that haven’t met him yet will have a chance to get to know who he is.

The second interview will be with Stone’s head brewer Mitch Steele. We’ll be talking about a brand new beer coming from Stone and of course, tasting it. Should be a good time!

Brewer’s Tea at 21st Amendment

Sunday, February 14th, 2010

On Sunday morning Andrew and I headed to 21st Amendment for the Brewers Tea, a brunch of sorts with some pretty cool beers being poured and sausages on the grill. We met some pretty cool people including Shawn O’Sullivan, the founder of 21st Amendment, Mitch Steele from Stone, Dave from Elysian and a really cool home brewer named Richard Brewer-Hay. He has a really cool story about a new brewery that he’s starting, literally, out of his basement.

So you guys know me… with all these cool people around, I decided to do some impromptu interviews. Check em out!
