  • 25 year home brewer with a recent absence from brewing. Im back and Im rebuilding my single tier propane HERMS system. I love British Ales, Belgians and IPA's
  • Wellness Coach and Chiropractor.

  • Started Home brewing in 1981 after 3 failed attempts to make wine. There was a little tiny Home Brew shop around the corner and they had one book back then about home brewing. I followed the instructions using "Blue Ribbon" malt & lots sugar and made Horrible beer 3 times. I almost gave up but after consulting the more experienced people I finally made something drinkable and off I went head over heels into the sport! Ive Won many awards including AHA Silvers many times. But hung it all up in 1997 to have a baby. She's 14 now and Im back in full bore! Bring on the competition

    In my opinion the best North Orange County breweries worth a stop are: The Bruery, Bootleggers,
    Nobel, Valiant, and Old Orange Brewing. (Quality in order). PTE? Hmmmmm. Very rare any where.
