Jim Kenny is the National Sales Director at Green Flash Brewing Co. Jim was in town for Austin’s Flying Saucer Hop Fest. He refers to Chuck a couple times in the video; that would be Chuck Silva, Green Flash’s brewmaster. Chuck makes it, Jim sells it. Good system.
According to the ever trustworthy Wikipedia a green flash is an “optical phenomena that occurs shortly after sunset or before sunrise, when a green spot is visible, usually for no more than a second or two, above the sun, or a green ray shoots up from the sunset point.” What does that have to do with beer? Not sure. But Green Flash Brewing Co. makes damn good beer. Green Flash was founded in 2002 by Mike and Lisa Hinkley in Vista, CA and Chuck Silva came on board as their brewmaster the following year. I got the low down on Chuck’s MLP at Austin’s Flying Saucer during their Hop Fest event.
