Live with Morris Nuspl from Deft Brewing

This week we’re joined by the Chief Eternal Optimist from Deft Brewing, Morris Nuspl! We love our new format of doing the shows live and if you’re all “What are you talking about?” in your head right now, we’re live streaming our shows through Face Book on Thursday nights at 6:30pm.

We had a blast hanging out with the head brewer and co-founder of this unique brewery here in San Diego, if you haven’t been (especially if you’re a traditional European beer fan) you owe it to yourself to check this place out.

If you want to see the video of the live stream, the is below as well for you!



Live with Paul Segura from Karl Strauss

For the foreseeable future we will be recording our shows through StreamYard but that gives us the opportunity to live stream them to Facebook! We decided there was no one better to be our first live guest than Mr. Paul Segura, the brewmaster from the world renowned Karl Strauss Brewing Co. 

We had a blast hanging out with each other, Paul, and most importantly, our wonderful listeners that joined us for the stream. It was more than rewarding to be able share some #SDBeers and jokes with everyone.

If you are listening to the audio only version of the show, you will notice a significant quality difference than our in person shows; it’s just the limitations of these type of services but let’s face it, it’s way better than not hanging out together.

We miss you, we miss spending time at our favorite breweries, and we miss hugs from our friends most of all. Stay safe, do what you can to support your local, independent breweries and businesses, and we hope all is well with you and your family.

Maybe you’re not on Facebook but want to see the live stream video vs just listening; we have it here for you!


The New Normal Show

Hey amazing fans of The Indie Beer Show, we’re back with our first show recorded remotely! We landed on using StreamYard to record the show and we think it worked out pretty well. All of these platforms have their weaknesses but this one has one good strength, we can live stream our shows to Facebook, which we will do on May 14th.
The audio quality obviously isn’t the same as when we’re in the same room but it works and it keeps everyone safe. We start the show with a statement that is impossible to actually convey in words; the gravity of the situation the #SDBEER industry is facing currently is tremendous and calling it difficult is the underestimate of the century. Please #DoWhatYouCan to support your favorite independent breweries in anyway possible. 
We miss you guys, we miss tasting rooms, we miss hugs, we miss cheers, we miss leaning over to a person we don’t know and asking them what they are drinking. These are unique times we’re living in. With all that said, for our livecast show on May 14th (starting at 6:30pm), we’re going to tell you what beers to pickup soon so you can drink along with us! That will give us all a taste of the community we are currently missing.
Stay safe, stay healthy, and know your friends at TIBS! love you!

Pure Project

Fresh off their 4th anniversary, we had a the opportunity to sit down with Mike Czech and Chris Leguizamon from Pure Project to talk about their brewery that has been cranking out exceptional beer since the day they opened.

Known for their murky IPAs by most, we’re here to tell you that they have a deep bag of phenomenal products that you need to be exploring.

One #SDBeer TIBS! really enjoys from Pure is pictured above, Log Cabin, a barrel aged imperial stout with cocoa and maple syrup. We appreciate the restraint on the sweetness in a time where some beers are competing with the caloric content of ice cream, this beer brings enough to the table to be present but not enough to overwhelmed the subtleties of the barrel.

Strap in, this episode lands heavily on the longer side but we had a blast handing our with Mike and Chris, enjoy!

Booze Brothers Brewing Co. and the new SD Brewers Guild President

This week we have a great guest for you, Kris Anacleto, who cheekily refers to himself as Mr. Manager from Booze Brothers/Owl Farm, the new president of the  San Diego Brewers Guild!  We get to discuss his role in both beer brands and what it’s like for his peers to support him being involved with the guild, leading to his new position.

We had a terrific night hanging out with Kris; the full TIBS! team was present for this recording, and we really dig it when that’s possible!

If you haven’t been to Booze Brothers before, definitely get up there very soon, they are making great beer and have a very comfortable tasting room to enjoy it in. They also recently opened a second tasting room, located at 606 Mission Ave, in Oceanside.

Here’s your reminder to jump in and have some fun with us during our #29DaySDBeerChallenge leading up to Indie Beer Madness!

We hope you enjoy this episode!

The Original 40 Brewing Co.

When the opportunity presented itself for us to sit down with one of the younger but impressive breweries in #SDBeer, and Sore Eye Cup champion, The Original 40 Brewing Co., we did not hesitate!

On a wonderful Wednesday night in the TapCraft Studio, we had the company of head brewer, Chris Gillogy and owner, Steve Billings to discuss how the first 7 months of OG 40 has been going.

We taste through several of their beers, talk about some upcoming additions to the menu, and have a grand old time hanging out with good friends!

We’ll be launching a #29DayChallange on Feb 1st to get you hyped for the return of Indie Beer Madness! Yep, we can’t wait to celebrate #SDBeer with another good old bracket showdown. We’ll also be using #RoadToMadness if you guys want to follow along! We’ll be at a different brewery each day to let you know why we think they’re awesome.
