In this Season 2 premiere episode of Beer Breakdown, Gary chats with Julian Shrago, co-founder and Brewmaster of Beachwood Brewing to break down ten years of Beachwood and their special anniversary releases, Hoptical Telescope and Barrelogensis.
They dive into everything from Julian’s homebrewing background, the art and science of brewing, building a team, and breaking out of your comfort zone before cracking open the big West Coast-style Double IPA and the decadent Bourbon-Barrel-Aged Barleywine and what makes their approach to hops and barrels so damn unique.
This episode is brought to you by our featured retailer, Hi-Lo Liquor Market, the very best craft beer store in Southern California. Check them out online or visit their shops in Culver City and Long Beach (with Costa Mesa coming soon!).
