VISIT OUR NORTH COUNTY BREWERIES

Belching Beaver Brewery


Celebrating its second year
anniversary, Belching Beaver is
quickly making a name for themselves and is definitely one of the
upcoming breweries in North County to watch. Theyve
been on the move getting their brews in a lot of places
such as Jerrys Dogs in Carlsbad and Solterra Winery in
Leucadia. Their beer selections range from pale ale to
stout. No doubt, they have some of the best tasting stout
around and stout is a great choice during the colder holiday season. A few of our favorites are their Peanut Butter

Milk Stout, Pumpkin Spice Milk Stout and our absolute


favorite, their Beavers Milk Milk Stout. The Beavers Milk
is so smooth, silky, and creamy you can almost eat it with a
spoon. Their newest will be a Horchata Imperial Stout and
we cant wait to try it! Vista tasting room is open six days a
week and closed on Tuesdays. They have live music Sun,
a DJ on Wed, and food trucks and caterers Wed-Sun. They
will be partying New Years Eve with a midnight Beaver
Drop! Belching Beaver is located at 980 Park Center Drive,
A Vista, CA 92081. Call (760) 599-5832 or visit www.
belchinbeaver.com.

Aztec Brewing Company


Aztec is the complete package
and includes, great tasting craft
beer, awesome artistically designed
labels, friendly service, and very
happy beer loving customers. The owners of Aztec are
reviving an old style brand and making a big impression
with the quality of their locally crafted brews. You can find
their beers throughout San Diego, Orange, and Riverside
Counties. They strive to be as green and natural as possible and use the choicest malts and hops. Their Aztec
pyramid logo, day of the dead-style label artwork, and
absolutely delicious beer will burn an indelible impres-

sion in your fondest beer memories. Our favorites are their


El Dorado Aztec Blonde Ale and Noche de los Muertos
Imperial Stout. During the holidays theyll be releasing
Soul Sacrifice a barrel aged Red IPA spiced with ghost
chiles, jalapeos, cilantro and lime peel. Other winter
brews include Cacao Chocolate Porter and Kitchen Sink
Triple IPA. Every Thrs is Open Mic Night; Fri features live
music. Aztec Brewery is open five days a week and closed
on Mon and Tues. They will be open Christmas Eve and

2330 La Mirada Dr, #300, Vista, CA 92081. Call (800) 7066324 or visit www.aztecbrewery.com.

Arcana Brewing
Arcana is more than happy
to be a little off the beaten path
and an oddity in the brewery world. Their logo and theme
are a mishmash of Steampunk, sci-fi, Victorian-style
whimsy, and throwback technology. Their name, Arcana,
is loosely derived from the word Archaic, meaning old,
mysterious and unusual. Their beer lineup ranges from a
lighter 4.5% Honey Pale Ale to an 8% Headbasher Wheat
IPA, to a Pumpkin Beer and Barley Wine. For a seasonal
treat, we recommend trying their cider-like Newtons

Graff Apple Ale weighing in at 5% ABV. Getting closer to


Christmas, they have a Something Pumpkin release and
a happy holiday Bourbon Barrel Aged Barleywine, and a
Dark Xmas Ale. Arcana recently celebrated their two-year
anniversary in Carlsbad. Check their site for upcoming
events. They are open four days a week and closed M-W
and will be closed for Christmas and New Years. If you are
looking for something different, delicious, fun, and unusual, then try Arcana! They are located at 5621 Palmer Way,
C Carlsbad, CA 92010. Visit www.arcanabrewing.com.

Indian Joe Brewing


The name Indian Joe comes
from Max Morans great uncle
with Native American heritage
from both the Pala and San Luis
Rey Tribes in North County. Maxs
great-great grandfather tended the grape vines at San Luis
Rey Mission and had a passion for brewing beer in the
1800s. His recipes were infused with local natural ingredients. Indian Joe Brewing opened its doors in 2012 and
as their logo states, they are Chief of Them All when it
comes to quality and taste. The beers are native owned
and native grown and we guarantee that you will be
back for more. Beers offered include a wide selection of

Hefeweizen, American Indian IPA, Sours, Stouts, Pumpkin


Ale, and their Indian Joe Rita. The Indian Joe Rita is a tangy
margarita-style beer made with wheat, lemons, limes,
tangerines and oranges. For cold winter days and nights
try their delicious Milk Stout, Chocolate Hazelnut Porter,
Cinnamon Apple Honey Wheat, Coconut Stout, and their
amazing Double Chocolate Stout. They always have lively events, food trucks, and catering. Theyre open five
days a week and closed Monday and Tuesday and open
Christmas Eve. Check their website for details. Indian Joes
is located at 2379 La Mirada Drive, Vista, CA 92081. Check
their website for a new location at www.indianjoebrewing.
com or call (760) 295-3945.

Beer Brewing Company


The name Beer Brewing Company may
sound generic, but theres really nothing
generic about this place. It is a bit hidden;
located in the back of two restaurants,
Bull Taco and Wrench and Rodent on Highway 101 in
Oceanside. Owned and operated by a local husband/wife
tag team, they offer quality ales and home crafted beers,
hand crafted right before your eyes in small batches. What
is really cool is that they seem to have nothing to hide, so
you are able to watch master brewer, Haven Harris, make
his craft brews just a few feet away. Blink, and you may find
that they suddenly ran out of your favorite IPA. But have

no fear, because Haven is brewing new concoctions daily.


Beer Brewing Company is one of the innovative breweries
that is collaborating with, not one, but two, neighboring
restaurants and has overcome the problem of restaurant
permits. Stop in and have a fish taco at Bull Taco or a sushi
roll at the Wrench and Rodent, then walk to the back and
have a craft beer at Beer Brewing and sit outside on their
wide open patio and enjoy! Live music happens and the
patio is kid and dog friendly. Beer Brewing is open Thrs
Sun and is conveniently located at 1813 South Coast
Hwy 101, Oceanside, CA 92054 (behind Bull Taco).Visit
www.beerbrew.com.

On The Tracks Brewery


We love to tell you about local
family-operated breweries and
On the Tracks Brewery, located in
Carlsbad, has a long family history
in North County San Diego. Great
grandpa made a living working on the railroad and hails
from Oklahoma, and grandpa was born in a train car on
the tracks. Both great grandpa and grandpa relocated
to Carlsbad in the 1920s. After ten years of backbreaking hard labor on the tracks, great grandpa was given a
ticket by the railroad to any place he wanted to go, and
he chose Carlsbad. Today, their decedents, father and

son, John and Greg own and operate On The Tracks


Brewery and provide thirsty customers with great tasting
handcrafted beers. They are a small craft brewery that
shares their labor of love with locals and visitors. They
brew ales, stouts, porters, and IPAs. Their English-style
tap room has two flat screen TVs and Backgammon.
Stop in and try a flight, a pint, or fill a growler. Check
their website for special events. They are open daily
and have live music on Saturdays. They are located at
5674 G El Camino Real, Carlsbad, CA 92008 (near
Faraday and El Camino Real). Call (760) 550-9688 or visit
www.ottbrew.com.

the drama and the two countries find themselves on the

HeBrew(ed) a Holiday Jewbelation and


It Was Good
By Bob Grueneberg
Its that time of year, so
get ready for an onslaught of
unusual beers we see only
around the holidays. They
come from far off places from
around the world and as near
as your neighborhood brewery. Each year their number
and diversity seem to increase, much to my delight.
Holiday beers are not a defined style but tend to be darker,
stronger, and possibly spiced with flavors reminiscent of
this time of year.
Many Belgian breweries make exceptional beers for the
holidays, including Affligem Noel, St Bernadus Christmas
Ale, Scaldis Noel and Corsendonk Christmas. North
County boasts special beers as Noche de los Muertos
from Aztec Brewing, Peanut Butter Milk Stout from
Belching Beaver and a Chocolate Hazelnut Porter from

Indian Joe Brewing, to name a few. You can no doubt find


other holiday releases from your local brewpub too.
An exceptionally strange and wonderful tradition comes
from the Schmaltz Brewing Co. Started a number of years
ago, they brew an anniversary beer of the same strength as
the anniversary year (10th was 10 percent, etc), with multiple hop and grain additions during the brewing process
(also matching the number of anniversary years). This
is the 18th year, so get ready for the 18% ABV edition of
HeBrew Jewbelation (no, I am not making this up). I had
the good fortune of accidently bumping into the owner
Jeremy Cowan at a strong beer festival in San Francisco.
When he asked me which beer was my favorite there,
and not knowing he was the owner, I immediately said
the beer from Schmaltz Brewing Co, to which he broadly
smiled and said, Im the owner!. The Jewbelation beer
is always a holiday treat.
So wherever you end up in the coming days, ask if they
have any holiday or Christmas beer on tap, or maybe a
HeBrew, and no doubt, youll be pleasantly surprised.

the office, or try a Brueggers Breakfast Sandwich for the perfect way to
start your day. Their classic breakfast sandwiches combine egg and your
choice of peppered bacon, ham, sausage or turkey sausage on a hot fresh

classic Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese, stacked high on a
fresh bagel with sliced tomato, red onions and capers.
In addition to their famous bagels, breakfast sandwiches and bagel
sandwiches, Brueggers also offers a healthier Under 500 Calorie
menu. If you are a calorie counter, try one of their Skinny Bagels. Guests
can now order any of Brueggers 15-plus varieties skinny, due to
Brueggers unique slicing process. Instead of changing the recipe of its

time-tested, New York-style bagel, Brueggers slices the bagels thinner


using a process that removes approximately one-third of the bagels
center but preserves its unique eggshell crust and delicious toppings.
The result is a lower calorie bagel without sacrificing variety or taste.
Another healthy choice is their Skinny Zesty Egg White Sandwich. This
comes with an egg white patty on a skinny sesame bagel, with turkey
sausage, Swiss cheese and sundried tomato spread.

and February 1, 2 pm
San Diego Opera is pleased to open the 2014-2015
mainstage opera season with Puccinis beloved classic La
bohme on Saturday, January 24 for four performances. La
bohme was the first opera the Company produced in 1965,
50 years ago. La bohme tells the story of young friends in
Paris and the poet Rodolfos love affair the sick and ailing

first time opera, it one of the most popular operas produced

Smith who was last heard as Starbuck in 2012s MobyDick to sing Marcello. Bass-baritone Christian Van Horne
makes a house debut to sing Colline and bass-baritone
Scott Sikon, last heard as Cristiano in 2014s A Masked
Ball, returns to sing double duty as Alcindro and Benoit.
San Diego Operas resident conductor Karen Keltner
leads the orchestra for these performances. British director Isabella Bywater will stage the action in this English
National Opera/Cincinnati Opera production, which she
also designed. These performances will be the eleventh
time La bohme has been performed by San Diego Opera
with performances happening in 1965, 1968, 1975, 1980,
1985, 1990, 1995, 2000, 2005, and 2010. Performed in

Home Sellers Advisory


This advisory to home sellers is provided as a courtesy
by David Boe, owner/broker of Boe Real Estate, sharing
30 years of local broker experience from selling over 1,000
homes:
Advisory #1: Beware of the High Price listing presentation. These agents have one goal and that is to get a signed
listing contract by pitching an unrealistic high list price. I
have a unique response for sellers to give these agents and
a marketing strategy for this situation.
Advisory #2: Beware of the Universal Phone Call that
goes something like this; Hello, I have a buyer interested
in buying your home, are you interested in selling? Truth
is very few of these solicitation calls have a specific buyer.
If you answer yes to their question, ask them to put their
buyers name on a single party listing agreement, so your
obligation is only if that specific buyer buys your home.
Advisory #3: Beware of the Great Promise. These
agents convincingly tell you that they list and sell most of
their own listings, with no other agent involved..and they
will lower the total listing commission from 5 or 6% to 3%
when they sell your home themselves. The truth is; very
few agents sell their own listings! So, they get a 5 or 6% list-

ing contract by promising lower commissions that rarely


occur. I have a simple solution for this too, that sellers can
request from these crafty agents.
Advisory #4: Beware of agents that will Match another
agents total commission. I have listed homes at 1.5% to
me for 30 years with 2.5% to buyers broker for a 4.0% total
commission. Some agents say they will match my 4%, but
they only offer 2.0% in the MLS to the buyers broker and
they keep 2% for themselves. Is that in the best interest of
the seller that they are representing, or themselves? While
commissions are negotiable, most buyer agents expect a
2.5% minimum commission. Have the agent disclose in
the listing agreement that only 2% is going to buyers broker in MLS. Then, have the agent print out the listings in
your area to show you how many other listings offer 2% to
buyers broker. Commissions to buyers broker are clearly
stated in the MLS.
David Boe offers 30 years of reputable and honest broker
experience. He saves his home sellers and buyers thousands of dollars with reduced commissions to sellers and
rebates to buyers. Contact David Boe at: 760-944-1160 or

Farmers Insurance Open PGA Golf Tour Returns to Torrey Pines


Win Free Tickets! February 5 8

This will be the


sixty-third year a
PGA tour event has
been held in San
Diego
beginning
with the San Diego
Open in 1952. For fifty-one straight years
the Century Club of
San Diego has been
the local non-profit
organizing body for
the
tournament.
This year marks the
forty-eighth time the
event is being held
at Torrey Pines Golf
Course, and the sixth
year that Farmers
Insurance has been its main sponsor. The event will be
held at Torrey Pines from February 5 to 8.
After overcoming a nasty bug earlier in the week and
being in a five way tie, which he broke with a 4 under-68
shot that put him in the lead, Stallings took home the win

at last years tournament. Beating out Gary Woodland,


Jordan Spieth, Pat Perez, Jason Day, Graham DeLaet,
and others, Stallings made six birdies over the last eleven
holes and finished at 9-under 279. This win marks the
third for Stallings, who gained two of those wins in tournaments that Tiger Woods was in, but Woods was not
present last year at Torrey Pines, and fan favorite Phil
Mickelson was out of the running down the stretch.
Tiger Woods is the master of Torrey Pines and captured his 7th Farmers Insurance Open title two years ago
to go with his 75th win on the PGA tour with a 14-under
score of 274 and four-shot win over defending champion
Brandt Snedeker. Everyone in the golf world hopes that
Tiger Woods will be returning to the tournament this
year due to his many successes in the past, but his health
is questionable.
Woods became the first player in tour history to win
on the same golf course eight times. Woods has now
converted 50 of 54 third-round leads and co- leads on
tour. He now only trails Sam Snead for all-time for wins
with 82. Tiger Woods is the all-time money winner at the
Farmers Insurance Open with a wallet full of $6,845,096.
Tiger has won seven titles at the Farmers Insurance
Open.
