We have a panel of expert guests this morning to tell us all about the burgeoning South Bay beer scene.

Jeff Parker, co-owner and Head Brewer Dude. Jeff is a South Bay native and surfs a lot.

His interest in beer making began in an AP chemistry class after reading a paper on exothermic reactions. He loves the science of it all and began home brewing in 1989 just as the micro-brewing industry was really taking off.

Also from The Dudes Brewing Company, we have Toby Humes, co-owner and Business Dude. Toby has a Masters in Accounting but his appreciation for craft beer started in 2009.

Ed Fabian is the Store Manager of Total Wine & More’s Redondo Beach store.  Prior to joining Total Wine & More in May of 2002, Ed had been involved in the beverage industry for over 11 years.

From Patch.com, we have our local beer writer, John Schreiber. John is a journalist and a field editor for Patch.com's group of local news websites in the South Bay and regularly covers the growing craft beer industry in the area.

From Select Beer Bottle Store & Tap Room, we have returning guest Wes Jacobs.  Wes is a long time home brewer and co-owner of Select Beer Bottle Shop & Tap Room. Select Beer features American craft and imported beers with over 300 varieties to choose from.

Jay Ankeney has been active in the So Cal homebrew scene since the 1980s. He is a member of the South Bay's own Strand Brewers Club (president in 2002), a BJCP certified beer judge, and founded the Pacific Brewers Cup in 1997.
