I’ve been wanting this brewery to come on Beer for Breakfast since their first Great American Beer Festival (GABF) win last year and after they won AGAIN this year I HAD to have them on.
Ocean Beach Brewery has only been open for 2 years and is already making big waves in the craft beer community. (See what I did there, waves, beach… anyway…)
Head brewer Jim Millea and General Manager Scott Watkins joined Paul and I this week just ahead of OB Oktoberfest and on the heels of their big win at GABF.
In 2017 OB Brewery won a silver medal for their German-style Wheat Ale, Hidden Gem.
This year, 2017, OB Brewery brought home a gold medal in the American Pale Ale category for their B. Right On Pale Ale.
Oh, and they also won Small Brewpub & Small Brewer of the year! This is a huge honor in the craft beer world and I can’t think of a nicer, more deserving brewery and brewer.
OB Oktoberfest kicks off today and OB Brewery is RIGHT next door AND will be poured in the fest.
What’d we drink:
Hidden Gem Dunkelweizen 5.5% ABV
B. Right On Pale Ale 5.6% ABV
Elevator Red IPA 6.9% ABV
Big, Huge, Giant thank you to Abel Garcia (sound engineer/producer) and Rick Romero (director/editor) for all your help! You guys da best.
