Hillcrest Brewery -- Just in case you didn't know.
Hillcrest Brewing Company in Southern California is maybe STILL the first brewery owned by openly gay people that caters to the LGBTQ community. They've been open for some time (since 2012) but as I dig around to find out everything there is to know about queer beer culture, their name pops up more and more frequently. After checking out their list of brews I realized we have a theme here.... the queers love smutty beer names. I love smutty beer names, for sure! Now if someone would just open a QMB chapter in San Diego we could do some serious collabrating. I mean "Pearle Necklace" meets "Third Time's a Charm Bracelet". Mind blown. Interestingly, and not surprisingly, Hillcrest is owned by men and their beer names reflect this fact. I think it's only a matter of time before we start to see greater diversity within the community of queers that make beers. The revolution has begun and soon enough all the girls and boys with vaginas are going to be pumping out specialty brews, too! Put on your Charm Bracelet and hit this rad pub if you are in San Diego. Hats off to you, Hillcrest.
