Helix Brewing Co. on Beer for Breakfast

Session beers with lower calorie counts have been growing in popularity as craft beer fans try to watch their skinny jeans waistline. But for heaven's sake, what about guts and taste? After all, we're not talking about lite beer here, just light on the ABV. Balancing the formula between great session beers and bold San [...]

Bitter Brothers Brewery on Beer for Breakfast

We were fascinated to find that the Bitter Brothers Brewing Co. team members who joined us for this week's edition of Beer for Breakfast were neither bitter — nor brothers! We welcomed Bitter Brothers head brewer John Hunter to the show, along with sales and events manager Corey Esoldi. And it turns out there are [...]

What’s Wrong with this Beer List?

I love craft beer. I love San Diego. Craft beer and San Diego go hand-in-hand. Now, you can somewhat understand how pissed off I am about this list that came from Smart Asset (they have the ASS right...). Courtesy of Smart Asset I'm sorry but F this list! San Diego didn't make the top 25 [...]

Finally, Someone Has Brewed Beer Specifically For Drinking In The Shower

Cheers to the Swedes who decided to brew some beer that's meant just for drinking in the shower! (Wait, isn't all beer meant for drinking in the shower? Or is that just me?) Shower Beer, as it's so creatively called, makes up for its lack of size (a mere 6 oz) by packing a punch; [...]

Burning Beard Brewing Co. on Beer for Breakfast

We were without the crushable wit and wisdom of under-the-weather Paul Segura from Karl Strauss Brewing this morning, but we had a full, jolly, coiffable studio nonetheless with the team from Burning Beard Brewing Co., who made their way from El Cajon in the Circle of Hops (put it on the map!) to 91X for [...]

Keg N Bottle on Beer for Breakfast

Along with having Paul Segura from Karl Strauss Brewing in tow, having a great local business like Keg N Bottle come on board as the sponsor of Beer for Breakfast ahead of the feature's "re-boot" in April was absolutely huge, and a big shot in the arm for re-launching the segment. So to show our [...]
32 North

32 North Brewing Co. on Beer for Breakfast

32 North Brewing Co. were the stars this week, but everyone loves Paul. Located in San Diego's Miramar (okay, "Beeramar") area and named for San Diego's latitude on the globe, we have to admit we weren't consulting too many maps ahead of 32 North Brewing Co.'s visit to Beer for Breakfast, but we were looking [...]

Bolt Brewery Visits Beer for Breakfast

Bolt Brewery master brewer Clint Stromberg and a growler of Dan Stouts. This week the 91X Beer for Breakfast team played host to Bolt Brewery, which can legitimately lay claim to being the first genuine craft beer outlet in San Diego, having gone into production in 1987 — a full two years before Karl Strauss [...]

We had a packed studio this week's edition of Beer for Breakfast as we were joined by the team from 3 Punk Ales — now moving into their new locale in Chula Vista on Third Ave. — including head brewer Kevin Lewis, punk numero uno Steve Garcia, and brewer and self-described paper pusher John Marshall.

Located at 1251 Puerta del Sol in San Clemente, Left Coast were craft beer [...]

BEER Beer Goggles, When You’re So Buzzed You Lower Your Drinking Standards

Ever get so buzzed that you start drinking a nasty beer just because it's what's there? And you justify it to yourself because it's late and you're buzzed and you just want another beer, taste be damned? Then you've experienced BEER beer goggles, my friend. Allow our friends at College Humor to demonstrate:
