“Dr.” Bill Sysak, regarded as one of the top craft beer experts in the world, is proud to announce the launching of his new brewery in San Marcos, California, slated to open spring of 2017.

Wild Barrel Brewing Company has a 15-barrel brewhouse and will produce exceptional craft beers in a variety of styles that will please everyone from the novice to the most experienced beer aficionado. Bill’s thirty-nine years of experience in the craft beer world (including over seven years at Stone Brewing) will ensure an unforgettable lineup.

The brewery will be known for its “San Diego Weisse" sours implementing a variety of fruit additions, along with a constantly-rotating selection of San Diego-style IPA's to satisfy the most extreme lupo-maniacs. Rounding out the core lineup is an American stout with coffee additions, changing seasonally from local roasters, and a “crushable” Belgian Wit.

Wild Barrel Brewing Company will have an extensive barrel program, beginning with 300 and progressing to 1,000 barrels within the first few years. The brewery will hold a number of small releases each year that will include a variety of barrel-aged sours along with Bourbon-barrel Imperial Stout variations.

Dr. Bill remarks, “I’m very excited to officially announce this new project I have been working on over the last couple of years. It has been an amazing seven-plus years at Stone Brewing. I am thankful to Greg Koch and Steve Wagner for allowing me to spread the gospel of craft beer to legions of fans nationwide.”

 

“Dr.” Bill Sysak is respected around the world for his encyclopedic knowledge of beer styles, flavor profiles, and his expertise at pairing beer with food. He has been featured in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, Food & Wine, Draft, Imbibe, and numerous local magazines, TV, and radio. Bill is on the San Diego State University Business of Craft Beer Advisory Board, and instructs the courses “Exploring Craft Beer” and “Secrets of Exceptional Beer and Food Pairings.” His popular project Master Pairings was a weekly feature on the long-running series, New Brew Thursday, and was the star component of beer dinners at Stone and around the United States.

While there does not seem to be a website yet for Wild Barrel Brewing Company, the new venture does have a Facebook page.

Beer is The Answer at Screens 'n' Suds Big Event

When most beer geeks look at their elixir filled glass, one either gazes at or thinks of ways to unmask it. Evaluating and demystifying to find the purpose or wonder of that particular beer. Either the brewer had the intention, the mistake, or the unknown with said brew. Labels can only take us so far into the imagination or process and concoction of said brew.
