We often discuss many aspects of San Diego beer history on TIBS!, but to hear it directly from integral members of the industry and those documenting it live was truly a special occasion! August 14th, at Latchkey Brewing, located in the original Mission Brewery Plaza, that was built in 1913, we were honored to host 50+ people for a night of learning and fun!
We began The Show with Matt West, Co-founder of Latchkey Brewing, to discuss what attracted them to the location and some of the difficulties improving a historical structure.
Then we take a deep dive into the history of San Diego beer, starting in the 1800s and working our way up to some current trends. We have amassed a super star panel for your listening pleasure; Judith Downie, Curator of the Brewchive™ at Cal State San Marcos, Bruce Glassman, Long-time editor, writer, and publisher who has been covering the San Diego beer scene for nearly a decade and is a team partner working on creating the Museum of Beer , Sheldon Kaplan, beer author and producer of Suds County, Gina Marsaglia – Co-Founder of Pizza Port, and Chris Cramer, CEO & Co-founder of Karl Strauss.
With roughly 100 years of cumulative San Diego beer knowledge, the panel offers you many insights to the what lead to and is currently driving the gigantic success of the SD beer industry.
Get comfortable, grab a Red Trolley or a Swami’s IPA to honor our panel, and hit the play button!
