An über-beer geek and writer is looking to raise funds for a 30-BBL brewhouse in San Diego? Yeah, that’s somebody I need to talk to… Jacob McKean is in the midst of fundraising for Modern Times Beer and we discuss his experiences working as a social media specialist at Stone Brewing, his Beerpulse Op-ed piece, bringing on famed homebrew blogger the Mad Fermentationist as a consultant, their projected beer line-up (including a homage to Nugget Nectar), and much more.

If you’ve ever thought about taking your homebrew hobby to the pro level, listen to this and understand what you’re getting into.

Follow Modern Times on Twitter, Facebook, and say hello to Jacob if you are attending CBC ’12.
