Eppig Brewing & Oktoberfest Preview

Eppig Brewing is in the middle of an extremely long hitting streak and will be the first company to successfully leave the Brewery Igniter program! With a new 30 BBL production facility nearing completion in Vista, the Oktoberfest season almost upon us, and their third anniversary on the horizon, we thought it was a great time to sit down with Nathan and Clayton, both co-founding brewers and have a discussion about all things Eppig! They have garnered notoriety for their lagers but I’m a fan of their entire portfolio of well executed beers.

We dip into the history of the name of their brewery, discuss the Oktoberfest celebrations, get an update on their new location and some possible timelines for debuting in North County, and have a blast hanging out with two seriously authentic brewers that genuinely love their craft.

This would be a great episode to listen to while visiting their Waterfront Biergarten, just saying. Hit the play button and enjoy!

** Heads up! We’ll be taking a week off next week. Don’t worry, we’ll be back the following Monday with some interviews from the CCBA conference and festival in Long Beach!**

 

Thorn Brewing: Mission Hills

Did you know that Thorn Brewing (mid sentence shout out to Thorn for using a .beer address, like us!) recently opened a new tasting room in Mission Hills? Well they did and it’s a really cool place to hang out, have a tasty beverage and play a little skeeball.

We linked up with Tom and Jay from Thorn to have a great discussion about all the things currently going on and enjoy the amenities of the newest addition to their family. They now have 3 locations for your indie beer needs, the OG spot on Thorn St., the newer production facility in Barrio Logan, and the aforementioned new spot in Mission Hills.

I hope you have a Relay IPA, Hopster Pot, or any other delicious Thorn beer in your hand as you hit the play button!
