On Batch 55, Greg was lucky enough to track down the husband and wife duo behind one of our favorite San Diego breweries: Benchmark Brewing Company. It was one of the most fun interviews we've had on the show. We talked about their background, learning to brew at Alesmith, what each person's role is, how a married couple works so successfully together and also about what it took to become Great American Beer Festival judges.
We also get in to why Matt left Alesmith to start a new business, the brewing industry in San Diego, the brewery bubble, the independent craft beer logo, hazy IPAs, Matt's collaboration with Stone, regrets in opening a brewery and so much more! There's even a round of listener questions.
