SPECIAL COVERAGE: Living With Wildfires: San Diego Firestorm 10 Years Later

San Diego Brews on the Rise

Audio

Originally aired on December 6, 2007.

Tom Fudge: You would not think that San Diego would become a capital of beer brewing in the United States. But the local brewing industry has grown tremendously over the past 10 years. At one time, it could be called a cottage industry. It still has that attitude, but production has risen tremendously.

Recently Ballast Point and Stone Brewing companies have, respectively, tripled and quadrupled their brewing capacity.

The new age of beer has been a nationwide phenomenon. It's been a long time since the best you could get in a San Diego pub was Budweiser or light Mexican brews. Joining me to talk about the history and the future of brewing in our county are Peter Rowe, Greg Koch and Colby Chandler.
