Cuckoo for Coconut

I would not have thought to brew with a whole different water but San Diego’s NOVA Easy Kombucha has pivoted to their first beer, “Beach Lager.” This small-batch pilot beer is brewed using coconut water.

I would be interested to see what this ingredient swap would do for a stout or smoothie style beer.


San Diego Beer News wrote about an interesting project for Beer Paper LA about the recently opened CoLab.

Three breweries, a winery and a Baby’s Badass Burgers under on roof on the Hop Highway of Vista.

I have long advocated for something similar in L.A. Personally, Hollywood seems the right area since it is pretty devoid of breweries in comparison to downtown. I like the idea of three breweries as well with different aims. One new, one barrel aging and one a second taproom.

New in San Diego

I do not know how one person can cover the vast San Diego craft beer scene. Too much. Way too much. But read HERE for info on four, yes four new breweries…

  • VooDoo Child Brewing
  • Backyard Brewing
  • Tipping Pint
  • Seek Beer Co.

Doing a new brewery crawl might be an easier ask.

New in SD

As traveling starts to ramp back up, where to drink guides are starting to ramp up as well.

And one place Angelenos might be looking to test the beer travel waters is San Diego.

Beer City

One question has popped up a lot recently, what will be the first post-pandemic movie that you will sit in a movie theater and watch.

Well, I have an option for beer fans. Beer City San Diego. You can read more HERE about the documentary. You will get interviews with legends like Peter Zien of AleSmith among others.
