A Good Listen

Last Friday's Voice of San Diego podcast included an excellent interview with San Diego Brewer's Guild President Jill Davidson.  The interview discussed the variety of brewers in San Diego and how the Brewer's Guild is more vital than ever, as large international brewers continue to buy craft breweries and blur the distinction between what is a real, locally owned brewery, and what is a subsidiary of a giant brewer.  This week's news that Anheuser-Busch InBev is buying yet another craft brewery, this time Wicked Weed, reinforces Davidson's message and the San Diego Brewer's Guild's mission to "promote awareness and increase the visibility of fresh, locally brewed beer through education and participation in community events."   The interview with Jill Davidson starts about twenty-six minutes into the podcast, but the entire podcast is worth a listen and a subscription.
