[S4/E45] San Diego Day Drinking

Season 4, Episode 45 – This week, we’re coming to you yet again from an Airbnb, but this time, we’re in San Diego for the kickoff of San Diego Beer Week!

It’s officially San Diego Beer Week! That’s right–it’s that special time of year where San Diego’s best and brightest breweries gather together for festivities and fun for the annual San Diego Brewers Guild Festival, followed by many days of San Diego beer-centric events, beer tappings, and joyous celebration of San Diego beer.

Juan’s Beers!

We’re joined this week by former guest and friend of the show, Daniel Cady, Barrel Wrangler and brewer at Mikkeller San Diego. In addition to the tasty brews that Daniel brought over to our epic San Diego Airbnb rental, we’re drinking beers from one of San Diego’s newest breweries, North Park Beer Co!

Cheers to SD Beer Week!

BREW THE SHIT OUT OF IT.

[S3/E29] Brunching at Mikkeller Brewing, San Diego

Season 3, Episode 29 – This week on the show, we’re hanging out at Mikkeller Brewing Company in San Diego, California with Head Brewer Bill Batten and Barrel whisperer Daniel Cady.

World renowned gypsy brewer, Mikkel Borg Bjergsø, recently opened a new brewery right here in the United States. Mikkeller is probably one of the best-known gypsy breweries out there, brewing stellar barrel-aged stouts, wild ales, IPA, and more. Opening a permanent brewery in SoCal is pretty huge, not only for Mikeller Brewing Company, but also for beer geeks in the United States.

Opening a brewery in California is no easy task, which is why Mikkel decided to join forces with San Diego’s AleSmith Brewing Company. In fact, Mikkeller Brewing Company is actually in AleSmith’s former brewery, and they even retained AleSmith’s former Head Brewer, Bill Batten. (AleSmith recently opened a brand new brewery minutes from Mikkeller Brewing, so you should check that out, too).

Bill and Daniel sat down with us to talk about the origins of Mikkeller Brewing San Diego and shared some of the freshest Mikkeller beer we’ve every had, brewed right here in California.

Needless to say, but expect exciting things from Mikkeller Brewing in San Diego. The beers we had on the show were quite delicious, and the brewery has been open for only three months as of the recording of this podcast. We’re pretty excited for Mikkeller Brewing Company San Diego, and you should be, too.
