We thought that during the winter holidays things might slow down a bit…but we couldn’t have been more mistaken! So here’s some of what’s been happening while you were drinking your way to into the New Year.
Brewing legend Chuck Silva, who is credited by most as the mad genius behind the success of Green Flash. Silva brought Green Flash from smallish to one of the top 50 breweries int he country. Now he’s opened up shop in Paso Robles, which also happens to be Firestone Walker’s hometown.
His passion project, which serves as a strong option to California’s wine country, if off to a good start. Silva Brewing’s 10-barrel direct-fire brewhouse includes an intimate artisan tasting room and a 100-barrel cellar capacity, which just opened its doors in December.
In unrelated news, apparently Green Flash laid off 25 of their staff yesterday.
