Greetings fellow craft beer drinkers, my name is Robert Flores, some call me The Butcher since I have been a meatcutter for the last 43 years. In January of 2016 Gustavo Arellano, former editor of OC Weekly asked me to start writing about craft beer in Orange County, I was already Instagramming all my exploits in breweries and brewpubs around town so I said, Sure, why not. The craft beer scene has since exploded, I’ve been to The Great American Beer Festival the last 2 years, Ensenada Beer Fest the last 3 years, I was a judge at Coldchela 2018 the largest Latino Home Brew Fest in the Universe and basically covered every brewery in Orange County, some in Long Beach, a few in Downtown Los Angeles, Temecula, Tijuana, Rosarito, going to get to the Inland Empire soon.
Writing for the OC Weekly was a great experience but now it’s time to venture on my own, besides beer reviews I will be doing interviews, more Baja beer reviews, food reviews and I will cover the home brewing world. Oh, expect some coffee reviews too, I’m a #coffeesnob! Please get @ me @ firstname.lastname@example.org I love to see some feedback, let’s meet up for some beer talk.
