Tomme Arthur & Lost Abbey in San Diego Union-Tribune
From the article:
King Arthur’s kingdom was in disarray.
After a triumphant weekend in Denver at the nation’s largest beer competition, Tomme Arthur returned here to find his brewery – Port Brewing/The Lost Abbey – under siege.
A balky capping machine had spoiled cases of Shark Bite Red Ale.
A glass supplier has run out of the distinctive bottles that hold the distinctive Lost Abbey ales.
The tiny brewery has so many orders, it’s unable to fill them all.
Still, it’s nice to be king. Last month at the Great American Beer Festival, the industry’s annual showcase, Arthur’s beers won three medals. Port Brewing/The Lost Abbey, which opened its doors in 2006, was dubbed the nation’s best small brewery, and Arthur was crowned the top small-brewery brewer.
