Homebrew Summer: Czech Pils with Matthew Smiley


Pairing brewing and science with professional and homebrew beers go hand in hand. 

We recently partnered with San Diego Beer News’ Homebrew Summer and Homebrewer Matthew Smiley to scale his Czech Pils recipe to our system.

The third-annual Homebrew Summer program connects San Diego’s professional and amateur brewers by inviting local homebrewers producing their ale and lager recipes at local breweries and brewpubs, then having their beers released to the public.


Since 2021, 30 local brewing companies have worked with homebrewers to produce 33 beers. This year, we have 14 commercial breweries from North County to San Diego proper, inland to the coast, teaming with recreational fermentationists to brew and release 15 beers.
