Drink This: Pilsner the Conqueror

White Labs approaches beer a little bit differently. Rather than focusing their beer profiles on hops, they experiment with the influence that yeast has on their brews. “Most people come to White Labs to learn more about what makes their favorite beers their favorite beers,” Education and Engagement Curator Eric Fowler said.

As a global brand, Mikkeller exports to 40 different countries, but San Diego is home to the only physical brewery. “We’re not just unique to one area. We’re San Diego local, with Danish influence, but we’re not exclusively either one of those things. We’re all over the world so we’re influenced from everywhere,” Head Brewer Joe Lisica said.
