Hallmarks of Beer Culture in Ascendance | Crafting Beer Policy San Diego

This popped up in my Facebook feed today. I've decided that I will begin a small collection of these pieces and call them "Hallmarks of Beer Culture in {Ascendance | Stagnation | Declination}" depending on the situation. File this under Hallmarks of Beer Culture in Ascendance. 

Join us on Thursday, June 27th at the newly-opened Modern Times Brewery  for a wide-ranging look at San Diego’s burgeoning beer industry.
Moderated by VOSD land use reporter (and local beer partisan) Andrew Keatts, the program will feature five speakers sharing unique insights into the world of local craft beer.
Our confirmed presenters: 
Greg Koch | Munich, Napa…San Diego – The Untapped Potential of San Diego’s Beer Industry
Jacob McKean | So You Want to Start a Brewery?
Neva Parker | The Science and Nuance of Yeast
Omar Passons | Craft Beer and Community Development
Tatiana Peavey | Data, Social Media & Growing the Beer Community 

This is an event in San Diego. If you can make this, you will earn my eternal jealousy.

You can also flag this as an idea that I intend to steal. In July, Leah Huss of Papago | Huss Brewing, is planning a discussion called, "Back to Basics". In that talk, several invited guests will talk about a core beer and speak to it's complexity.
This might be the spring board for a few industry colleagues of David Conz  to begin to plan a series of beer lectures that will honor both Conz and Greg Fretz.


  1. I would very much like to hear Omar Passons!

  2. Flying Dog did some great seminars the last few years during SAVOR about the industry, hop and grain development in the Mid-Atlantic and beyond, etc.

  3. We have people with the knowledge here Brian. I want this for Phoenix.

    Julie, all if the guests are esteemed, but I am with you. I hope you can go so you can fill me in. Phoenix needs beer and public policy wonks.

  4. Thanks for Sharing! I honestly can't wait to try Modern Times Beer ;)
