Craft Beer in North County: Coast News Beer Column

In March 2019, I was invited to start writing a twice-monthly column on beer for The Coast News. Coast News covers Carlsbad, Del Mar, Encinitas, Escondido, Oceanside, Rancho Sante Fe, San Marcos, Solana Beach and Vista. So, North County west of the 15, more or less. They over 112k readers, a vibrant online presence, and they just won a “Best of the Best” award from the Association of Free Community Publications. I’m excited to be a part of this excellent community paper.
