The Indie Beer Show – Episode #11 – Visiting GABF Winner, Ocean Beach Brewery

Fresh off their gold medal and being awarded Small Brewpub of the year at GABF, we got to sit down with Jim Millea, the head brewer of Ocean Beach Brewery.

Imagine, if you will, that you had just come off 10 full days of #SDBEER week but were still obligated to show up at a local brewpub that you somehow had never visited. That was the mindset I was in entering this show, I was a little worn down to say the least. Then Esthela offered to grab me a Hodad’s cheeseburger (very close to OB Brewery)! That fixed me right up and I was more than ready to tackle another night of drinking and fun!

We are Davidless (is that a word?) for this episode, he had just left for an epic vacation. We put our jealousy aside, because we’re professionals (ha!), and setup our gear on the 2nd floor at OB Brewery.

We discussed how Jim got his start in beer, what lead to him getting the job at OB, and his reaction to winning these prestigious awards! There’s also beers and other fun nuggets in there.
