San Diego Happy Half Hour Podcast: Episode 70

True Food Kitchen opens another location in UTC, Boochcraft gives us the scoop on their boozy kombucha business, and Vom Fass talks oil, fruit vinegars, and more

Today’s episode of the Happy Half Hour is sponsored by Vom Fass, the Hillcrest boutique that sources small producers around the globe for its collection of whiskies, brandies, oil, fruit vinegars, and more. They’re telling us all about their “try before you buy” policy and how you can mix the most creative cocktails using, yes, vinegar.

In Hot Plates, we’re talking about the new True Food Kitchen at Westfield UTC, Catalina Offshore’s Good Food nomination and the East Village’s You & Yours Distilling Co., whose founder Laura Johnson was just named on Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list.

Today’s guest is Adam Hiner, co-founder of Boochcraft, the San Diego-based company that makes kombucha with a boozy spin. He gives us the scoop on how Boochcraft started, all the trial and error that went into making the drink (at one point they tried adding in moonshine), and their most popular flavors.

Plus, we’re talking about hops and how climate change may make beer more expensive.

In Two People/$50, we’re recommending Buona Forchetta, Shake Shack, and Arrivederci.
