A couple of months back, I was commissioned to write a story on the Hillcrest Brewing Co. in the Hillcrest neighborhood of San Diego. Their slant, appropriately for the area, is that they are the first “out and proud LGBT brewery.” It’s a simple profile and I hope I did them justice. Head brewer David White was forthcoming, engaging, and great to work with. Cheers.
In popular culture, beer drinkers are stereotyped to include (and entertain) a certain demographic. Handsome men and beautiful women carousing on the beach or a boat or taciturn men in lowly lit bars dominate the image of who fits the beer-drinking demographic. Search “beer drinkers” on Google Images and the first you’ll see are caricatures: a fat man guzzling five beers at once, a busty blonde and, of course, Homer Simpson.
