One of the more interesting beer stories I’ve written….now in the Spring issue of Edible Silicon Valley

One of the best things about writing about brewing is that most beers have a story behind them. Thankfully, I got to write about a beer with one of the more interesting back stories. A San Jose non-profit called Garden to Table goes around to picking fruit from private property owners that would otherwise go to waste. Almanac Beer uses some of this local fruit for their Valley of the Heart’s Delight sour ale. It’s shows how a local, untapped food resource can be taking by forward thinking individuals and transformed into something special and unique.

I want to thank Zach Lewis of Garden to Table and Jesse Friedman of Almanac Beer for their time and assistance with the story, and of course, thank my editor Kerri Stenson of Edible Silicon Valley for her enthusiasm. I think it’s one of the best article I’ve published, and you can read it now in the Spring issue of Edible Silicon Valley right here:  The Valley of the Heart’s Delight is Still Bearing Fruit
