“Brewery On My Bike”

“Brewery On My Bike”

“It’s great to work in Costa Mesa, live in Costa Mesa, commute on my bike throughout Costa Mesa. It’s actually not too often that I get outside the city limits because I bike everywhere.

“I’ve lived here for 6 years and try to commute to all the ‘new spots’ in Costa Mesa on my bike. So I was very excited when I heard news of a brand new brewery opening right here in town. Craft beer has always been a passion of mine, so I’d ride my bike by this ‘brewery-in-progress’ at least once a week. Shortly after the soft opening of Barley Forge in October of 2014, I would frequent the tasting room a couple times per week to enjoy a tasty, local beer.  It’s only a 2.5 mile commute from home.

“I’ve also been brewing at home for about 5 years. Of my local friends, there were a fair amount of us who enjoyed homebrewing. So knowing that Greg Nylen homebrewed for about 25 years prior to opening Barley Forge, I got an idea to start a homebrew club here in Costa Mesa. We came up with the name OC Mash Ups and a local homebrewing community was born!

“We meet the first Monday of every month at 7pm at Barley Forge Brewing Co. It’s free to attend and all are welcome. I hope more Costa Mesans will come check us out.”
