He’s also responsible for graciously mentoring many of the prominent young brewers among the new wave of award-winning OC craft breweries.

“In 2011, beer enthusiasts Meg Gill and Tony Yanow founded Golden Road Brewing to bring fresh beer to the local market in the most sustainable way possible. Golden Road is committed to engaging and supporting the growing community of socially-minded beer enthusiasts.” “Golden Road’s year-round offerings include Point the Way IPA, Golden Road Hefeweizen, Get Up Offa That Brown and Wolf Among Weeds IPA.

Show 150, December 12, 2015: Meg Gill, Co-Founder & President, Golden Road Brewing Continues…

Meg Gill of Golden Road BrewingConstruction has started in Anaheim (across the street from the South entrance to Angel Stadium) of a new production brewery, 2-level restaurant with a view patio, and tasting room for Golden Road. The temporary tasting room is already serving thirsty guests. It’s open 7 days.

The rendering and layout of the impressive finished facility (due in late 2016) are hanging on the wall in the Tasting Room. It’s definitely worth a look…

The greatly respected brewmaster there, Victor Novak (ex-TAPS), is well-known to Orange County craft beer enthusiasts. He mentored most of the high profile crop of youthful and ambitious craft brewers now working in the OC.

The bigger news is that Golden Road Brewing was acquired by Anheuser-Busch InBev this year at the invitation of Golden Road. A-B InBev also owns craft brewer Goose Island in Chicago which has continued to thrive under AB InBev’s stewardship..

Meg retains her ownership interest as well as carries on as President with her business plan.

For Meg it’s a matter of having access to greater resources for growth while retaining the culture of Golden Road. They now can even plant their own hops which is a tremendous strategic advantage. There is a hops shortage in the US.
