East County is about to heat up when the family that founded Alpine Beer Co. nearly two decades ago launches their second family fermentable business, Mcilhenney Brewing. That spot, which has been erected in the same pair of suites where their first business was born, is scheduled to open the last week of May, but we were able to sit down with Pat, Val, Shawn, Jamie and even infant brewer-in-training Cameron ahead of that arrival to find out what to expect when San Diego’s most anticipated brewing project in some time debuts. Along the way, we take a trip down memory lane for some very candid accounts of different chapters of the Mcilhenneys’ lives and times in the brewing industry. It’s a can’t-miss episode if ever there was one. Do yourself a favor and take a listen.
