Carmel’s Yeast of Eden Brewpub Introduces New Oyster Hour and Hosts Two Acclaimed East Coast Brewmasters and Their Beers at Special Event on June 3

Carmel’s most exciting new restaurant and bar, Yeast of Eden, will launch a new Oyster Hour as well as host two acclaimed East Coast brewmasters for a major beer event at the Carmel Plaza brewpub on June 3.

Carmel, CA, June 05, 2019 — Carmel’s most exciting new restaurant and bar, Yeast of Eden, will launch a new Oyster Hour as well as host two acclaimed East Coast brewmasters for a major beer event at the Carmel Plaza brewpub on June 3.

The event will feature three draft beers from each brewery, Burial Beer out of Asheville, North California and Other Half Brewing out of Brooklyn, New York, plus an Oyster Hour with fresh oysters for $1 each, as well as food and drink specials all night.

The Oyster Hour event with the two brewmasters will be from 5-6 p.m. Monday, June 3, with happy hour from 3-5 p.m., where Yeast of Eden and Alvarado Street Brewery beers will be $4 and there will some great food specials. The new Oyster Hour will be held from 5-6 p.m. every week, Monday through Thursday.

“Both brewmasters and owners of Burial and Other Half, Douglas Reiser and Sam Richardson, will be in attendance,” said Yeast of Eden co-owner J.C. Hill. “We’ve never had the privilege of serving beers from these two breweries on the central coast, so this will be a real treat to our locals who are into craft beer.”

Hill said that the two brewmasters are attended the Firestone Walker Invitational beer festival in Paso Robles this weekend. It’s one of the most prestigious beer festivals in the country, drawing thousands of people and a highly selective list of brewers from all over the U.S. and worldwide. Alvarado Street Brewery will be participating in this festival along with their peers.

Yeast of Eden is located on the lower level of Carmel Plaza, Suite 112, at Mission Street and Seventh Avenue in Carmel-by-the-Sea.

About Yeast of Eden

Yeast of Eden started as a lighthearted pun turned passion project for co-owner J.C. Hill and now Head Brewer Andrew Rose in 2014. Born out of an obsession with oak in the early days of Alvarado Street Brewery, Hill and Rose were allured by the seemingly limitless potential of mixed fermentation beer (a catch-all term of a genre of beers that have been fermented with various microflora that includes wild yeast and lactic acid bacteria) and it’s interaction with oak wine barrels in the aging process. So much so that Yeast of Eden became it’s own brand once Alvarado Street expanded their brewery operation in 2016 with the opening of a larger production facility in Salinas.

Fast forward to December 2018, and Yeast of Eden opened its first brick-and-mortar location with a restaurant and bar in the south wing of the Carmel Plaza in downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea. The brewpub features 120 seats inside and 40 seats in an outdoor courtyard patio, all in a hip, contemporary design aesthetic. The menu features global, street-food inspired cuisine to pair with the crisp, effervescent open-fermented beers made on-site.

Local Craft Brewers Monterey Bay Brewing and Carmel Valley Brewing Find a New Home in The Barnyard in Carmel with the Opening of a Brewpub in early September

After many years of conducting wholesale businesses locally owned and operated, Monterey Bay Brewing and Carmel Valley Brewing Company, have found a home of their own.

Carmel, CA, September 19, 2018 — After many years of conducting wholesale businesses locally owned and operated, Monterey Bay Brewing and Carmel Valley Brewing Company, have found a home of their own.

Before opening the new facility, which has been rebranded as Carmel Craft Brewing Company, Monterey Bay Brewing and Carmel Valley Brewing’s beers were only available at local restaurants, bars and stores.

According to CEO and Co-founder, Mark Fitch, the new brewpub is about 600 square feet, about the size of a small wine-tasting room that will seat 20. The rear portion of the facility will hold a brew house, so craft brews will be able to be made on-site. Plans are quickly in the making to expand into a larger space next door and a patio which will allow them to significantly expand the brew house and their seating.

“We’re really looking forward to it, it’s been a long time in the making,” said Fitch, who co-founded MBBC with Scott Coming in 2012. “We’ve received huge support from the Barnyard, too.”

Fitch said the new pub will start by offering 6-7 beers, beginning with the flagship Mad Otter Ale, plus a few styles from Carmel Valley Brewing Co. These will include Carmel Valley Brewing Co.’s Blonde and their IPA.

Fitch looks to add an American-style Wheat IPA, a Porter and a Cream Ale from MBBC. There will also eventually be guest taps from other local brewers, wines on tap and even kombucha on tap.

Carmel Craft Brewing Company’s offerings will start with fairly classic styles, most of them on the “lighter end of the spectrum.”

“We want to do what people like to drink,” says Fitch about the initial brewpub selections. “We want them to be able to drink what they already like.”

Carmel Craft Brewing Company will not offer food right off the bat, but Fitch hopes that patrons will take advantage of the many eateries in The Barnyard, including their next-door neighbor Allegro Gourmet Pizzaria, Flanagan’s just upstairs from them, plus Sur, From Scratch, Erik’s Deli Café, Lugano Swiss Bistro, Lafayette Bakery, Aabha Indian Cuisine, and The Noodle Palace. Eventually Fitch said he would like to offer a small pub menu, especially once they expand the brewpub.

A grand opening is planned for later this year.

About Monterey Bay Brewing Company

Monterey Bay Brewing Company began at the Mammoth Mountain Blues and Brews festival. Accountant Mark Fitch camped and went to the two-day event and experienced how everyone was going mad over craft beer. Realtor Scott Coming and Mark went the next year as well and this is when they knew they wanted to bring this kind of energy and excitement for craft beer to Monterey. Scott and Mark started to homebrew out of their kitchens and it was one early evening on the golf course that the name Mad Otter Ale sprang into Mark’s head and from that point on they knew they had something special.

About Carmel Valley Brewing Company

Established in 2007 by Dean Hatfield and Karolyn Stone, Carmel Valley Brewing is a tiny craft brewery on a ranch nestled in the hills of Carmel Valley near The Village. Since its beginning, each of the 3 styles produced has been brewed and bottled on premises using purified ranch water, and almost all wastewater is used to irrigate the 20+ fruit trees in the ranch orchard. Spent grain is composted on-site. All styles are produced under temperature controlled conditions and tightly filtered for long-lived flavor in bottle or keg.

Lazy Tree Ranch Consulting With Disc Golf Professionals on Course Design

Brewpub, food, bark park, playground all compliment the setting and add to the family friendly atmosphere.

Liberty Hill, TX, USA — Lazy Tree Ranch (http://www.lazytreeranch.com), a new events venue currently under construction in west Liberty Hill near Bertram, is consulting with disc golf industry professionals on the construction of a disc golf course at the events facility. The course, yet to be named, will have challenging holes with a fair amount of obstacles (trees).

Managing partner and co-founder Carl Braun is excited about the prospects. “We were approached by the disc golf community about creating something special at Lazy Tree Ranch. The greater Austin area is the epicenter for disc golf enthusiasts worldwide. Adding disc golf to our venue along with the Hops and Grapes brewpub, bark park, soccer field and play area will definitely put us on the map.”

Professional Disc Golf Association @PDGA players Thomas Stricklin and Kristen Womac are ecstatic about the opportunity.

“Thomas and I visited Lazy Tree Ranch a couple weeks ago and were amazed with the possibilities for a professional disc golf course on the property. As PDGA amateurs, with numerous career wins we have always wanted to participate in a project of our own where we had control over the creation of a world class disc golf course. Now, having invested as co-owners we’ll have a chance to put our stamp of approval on the project along with other disc golf enthusiasts,” noted Kristen “Kiki” Womac.

@LazyTreeRanch was founded in 2016 to become the area’s largest concert and events center. The 10.6 acre track is covered in one-hundred year old oak trees and has a huge grass field (150,000 sq ft) for soccer, events, concerts and of course disc golf. The Hops and Grapes Brewpub with beer, food and wine is expected to open later this year.

PDGA disc golfers can see a video and invest in the Lazy Tree Project starting at $100 on http://www.wefunder.com/lazytreeranch in a Regulation C crowdfunding effort. Special perks for disc golf enthusiasts will be offered. Terms on the website.
