Liquid Assets: San Diego Brewers Guild Brings Craft Beer Outreach to Underrepresented Communities
For spring we share three inclusive San Diego craft breweries to keep going back to for more
The Inclusion Committee of the San Diego Brewers Guild helps to implement diverse, inclusive, and equitable practices into local breweries to spearhead outreach in communities currently underrepresented in craft beer, and to educate craft beer consumers on how to be agents of change in the community. Be an agent of change while sipping on one of these local beers.
Border X Brewing’s flagship beer, Blood Saison, is inspired by a Mexican agua fresca with jamaica (hibiscus) and agave nectar for a sweet and tart flavor with light hints of biscuit malt. Owner David Favela, a first-generation immigrant from Mexico, draws inspiration from traditional Latin flavors rather than trying to duplicate the flavor profiles of European beers.
Founded by Timothy Parker, Chula Vista Brewery is Black- and Brown-owned and embraces the culture and diversity of southern San Diego. Humble IIPA is a strong but smooth imperial IPA made with Centennial and Simcoe hops.
Glorious Golden Ale
Second Chance Beer Co.’s beertender Brandon Montgomery recommends the in-house special Glorious Golden Ale. This one is a Belgian-style golden ale that presents a medium-light body with notes of pear, apricot, white pepper, and sweet grain.
