GUEST BLOG / By Mike Shess, Publisher, craft beer website and print magazine.

Once a year, usually in the Fall, as in 2016, West Coaster craft beer website and print magazine publishes the results of its Readers’ Poll.  For the next few weeks, daily online magazine in its weekly The Brewspaper column will profile on “Best of” from West Coaster’s annual poll. Publisher Mike Shess and Editor Ryan Lamb asked readers to vote for their favorites among the following categories:
         Best San Diego Beer
         Best San Diego Brewery
         Best Brewmaster
         Best Brew Pub
         Best Home Brewer
         Best Tasting Room
         Best New Beer Spot
         Best Beer Bar

         Best San Diego IPA
         Best Beer Region within San Diego County
         Best Beer Festival
         Best Bottleshop
         Best Beer Selection
         Most Underrated Brewery

This week Part 5:
Best San Diego Home Brewer:
Nick Corona.

Local homebrewer Nick Corona was named 2016’s National Homebrewer of the Year at the American Homebrewers Association’s conference, and we featured him on the cover of West Coaster magazine’s July 2016 issue. One of Corona’s best pieces of advice for homebrewers: “Do your research, plan ahead, never be in a rush, and enter competitions if you want to improve.” 

At some point he plans to open his own brewery, but he probably won’t be able to use his last name too prominently. Either way, we can’t wait to try the beer!
