  • The Ebay Wrap Up

    It’s been a couple of weeks since my Last Call article was published in Beer Advocate. It was a soap box based piece that Jason and Todd Alstrom let me publish without editorial intereference. I have mad respect for them letting it go to print as it was originally authored. It was the least edited […]

  • *&^% Ebay

    Last fall, we began releasing a series of new beers at Port Brewing and The Lost Abbey.

  • 10 Years of Good Beer Brings Good Cheer

    As many of you know, I was hired by Pizza Port in May of 1997. Later that year, Tom Nickel and I were sitting around milling some grain at the Homebrewmart in Solana Beach. We were discussing the growth of the San Diego Brewing Scene and how things were changing. We thought it would be […]
