“Almanac Beer Brings a California Terroir to Alameda” in Edible East Bay

What a couple of interviews I had with Almanac Beer co-founders Jesse Friedman and Damian Fagan!  In March, Jesse showed me around the brewery and gave me a clinic on brewing beer the Almanac way. Of course, that mean he spent a lot of time talking about the crafting of sour ales and infusing them with local fruit. I spoke with Damian a couple months later on the phone, who filled me more on the business end and Almanac’s central mission to bring a sense of community to their California tap room and support local farmers who provide the fruit they showcase in their ales.

The article was a few months in the making, and it all came together nicely in the Fall Harvest Issue of Edible East Bay.  You can check it out here:
