This Beer for Breakfast ABV was a special request for Danielle. It was her birthday episode so she chose Savagewood Brewing Company to come on.

Savagewood Brewing is a new brewery in Scripps Ranch that opened up last fall, but has been producing beer for over a year through contract brewing. They are in the old O’Sullivan Brothers brewery right behind Trader Joe’s. The owner Darrel doesn’t believe that a good brewery ever dies so when you go to their brewery/tasting room you’ll find traces of O’Sullivan Bros.

This episode of Beer for Breakfast ABV included as usual Paul Segura from Karl Strauss, Darrel (owner of Savagewood), Zach (head-brewer), and James (their jack of all trades man).
