There’s no substitute for experience, and Daren Rudy, the co-founder and brewmaster at recently opened Ataraxia Aleworks has plenty. He cut his teeth on the brew system at legendary Ballast Point Brewing, picking up the skills and techniques he’s now putting to work at his own business. Daren came on the show to tell us all about what visitors can expect when they visit his zen-focused Kearny Mesa tasting room, and shared some of his very first drafts.
What They Drank:
Harambe Helles | Helles Lager (4.5%)
Cowbell IPA | Double Dry-hopped Hazy IPA (6.5%)
