Episode 11 - Tommy Kreamer, Gravity Heights Brewing
For today’s show I virtually met up with a very chill Tommy Kramer, the head brewer at Gravity Heights brewpub in Sorrento Mesa neighborhood of San Diego. Gravity Heights happens to be fairly well set up for pandemic service with their large outdoor beer garden. You can check it out on @gravityheights on Instagram, and they’ve recently started canning beers, specifically their June Gloom hazy IPA, for people who still aren’t ready to head out for a pint on-site. You can find 4-packs around San Diego at Trader Joe’s, Bottle Craft and Bine & Vine. Tommy and I chat about his round about path to brewing with stops in the Pacific North West and even Germany before coming back to North County San Diego, and why he left the acclaimed Lost Abbey/Port Brewing to team up with another legendary San Diego Brewer to form the team at Gravity Heights, and a lot about what will be going on the beer board at the brewpub.

Episode 10 - Taylor Steele, Solento Tequila
For today’s show I virtually met up with acclaimed surf filmmaker, artist and entrepreneur Taylor Steele about his newest endeavor, Solento Tequila (https://solentotequila.com/) based right out of Encinitas which you can actually already get in North County at Seaside Market, Lazy Acres Encinitas and Harvest Ranch Market. Anyone who knows me outside this podcast knows I’m not a tequila person. In fact, I had not had even a drop of tequila since August of 1999, but because I’m at least semi-professional, and to show respect to my Cheers! guest, I decided it was time to give the agave based spirit a second chance. So in a moment, you’ll be an audio witness to my reintroduction to tequila with Taylor’s help, and then I’ll learn more about Solento’s efforts to create a high-quality, sustainable, organic tequila, Taylor’s connection to North County and his start filming some of his not yet famous surfing friends.

Episode 8 - Brittany Merrill Yeng, Skrewball Whiskey
For today’s show I virtually met up with Brittany Merrill-Yeng. She’s the co-founder, along with her husband Steven, of Skrewball Peanut Butter Whiskey. That is “screw” with k instead of a c. I wanted to talk to Brittany, in part, because Skrewball Whiskey is a local success story winning awards and rolling out nationwide, but also because of their Skrew Covid-19 and Skrew it forward charitable campaigns, and how being a mission driven business isn’t just about writing a check, but ingraining the mission into their business.

Episode 3 - Dande Bagby, Bagby Beer Co
This week my guest is Dande Bagby, the CoFounder, CoOwner, CoRunner, Basically, CoEverything of Bagby Beer Company in Oceanside California which she operates with her husband Jeff.

The brewery is reopening for takeaway with online ordering at bagbybeer.com, and I reached out to find out why. As always Dande was charming, insightful, and our conversation meanders around touching on beer, operating a small business, dealing with COVID, and where she’d take a mini-vacation if the pandemic were over tomorrow. And because it seems important to note, there were several very relaxed beagles wandering in and out of the room behind her during our interview. Read the latest Cheers!

Episode 6 - Black Lives Matter
There is no guest for this episode of the Cheers! North County Podcast. No guest for this weeks show. Support Black Lives Matter. We must stand up against racism in all forms, and to commit to continuing to learn, support, vote, and use our voices to continue to promote this cause. The murder of George Floyd, and too many others, has re-shined a light on our failings as a society, and reignited people worldwide. This demand for change can’t stop just because it is uncomfortable, inconvenient, or because there are those trying to distract from these issues. The need for action, for advocating for those that need it, for black people, and for people of color impacted systemic racism isn’t going away.This episode was recorded on June 5th, 2020.
