In this episode of TIBS! we are kicking off #SDBW (San Diego Beer Week) with a live show at one of Stone Brewing’s satellite locations. This was a great way to celebrate the commencement of the eleven days of beer week we set our selves up for!
The Stone Company Store – On Kettner was celebrating their 5th Anniversary and was generous enough to invite us out for some fun. We began the show with Laura Ulrich, Small Batch Brewer. We dig into her history at Stone Brewing and dip into her other role as President of the Pinks Boots Society. If you’re good at math, you’ll hear I mess a stat up by a magnitude of 10! If you do notice, message me you’re funniest, decimal point mistake meme.
We’re then joined by Kris Ketcham, Senior Manager of Brewing at Liberty Station and David Wilson, his assistant brewer. We discuss Kris’ start at Liberty Station, some of his fondest memories (and beers), and what’s currently going on there.
We close out the show with Andrew Snodgrass, shift lead at the Stone Company Store – On Kettner. He has an original beer that sparked his interest in craft, I’ve never heard anyone answer our most asked question like he did! We lament about missing Stone Brewing in South Park, discuss how he got his start at Kettner, where he was when he found out he got his job with Stone, and what he loves about working for the biggest indie beer producer in San Diego.
Cheers to Stone Brewing for having us out and to SD Beer Week! Grab an indie beer and hit that play button.
