In this episode of Hoptalk, Gary chats with Carey Jonker, owner and head brewer of Transmission Brewing Company.
If you’re outside the city of Ventura, there’s a decent chance you haven’t heard of Transmission Brewing. That’s because it’s pretty rare to find their beers outside of their taproom, Toppers Pizza locations, and a handful of local accounts.
But Transmission has impressed us since day one, earning a placement on our Hopped 25 list of the best craft beer in Southern California. Basically, we think they’re killing it and that you should know more about them.
So in this conversation, Gary digs into Carey’s background, his connection to Toppers, the buildout of their incredible brewery and taproom, their exceptional lager program, his hobbies of restoring vintage trailers and racing dwarf cars, the future of Transmission Brewing, and much more.
