Beer For Breakfast with Alameda Island Brewing Company

Photos by Robert W. Edwards

This week on Beer For Breakfast Alicia and I were joined by Matthew Fox, the brewmaster and co-founder of Alameda Island Brewing Company, to talk about our favorite subject: BEER!

Matthew founded Alameda Island Brewing company after falling in love with Alameda while stationed on the island serving in the U.S. Coast Guard. Matt started off homebrewing for eight years before he and his business partner Bill Phua decided to open up their own brewery. Matthew went down to a Southern California brewery to learn about brewing on a larger scale, while Bill stayed in Alameda to build the brewery using his engineering background, and the rest is history.

Listen in to the podcast below as Matthew takes Alicia and me through a tasting of two of their amazing beers; the Uncommon Common cream ale and their Island Haze IPA.

Also, make sure to check out their taproom on the island, open seven days a week!
