Brewbound stopped over in San Diego as part of the West Coast tour of their Brew Talks series and put together two panel discussions with craft beer experts to highlight the local industry.
If you weren't at The Lost Abbey for the meetup, watch video of the talks here. One panel, comprised of Modern Times Beer founder Jacob McKean, Bagby Beer Company founder Jeff Bagby, and Shawn DeWitt, the co-owner of Coronado Brewing Company, chatted about the challenges of opening a new brewery. Another panel featured The Lost Abbey co-founder Tomme Arthur, Stone Distributing's Chad Heath, and O'Brien's Pub owner Tom Nickel; the three weighed in on building a craft brand in beer-saturated San Diego. Go, watch.
