Windsor’s St. Florian’s Brewery is marking its six month anniversary with a new brew, its California Common (what would otherwise be known as a “Steam Beer” had Anchor not long ago trademarked the name). Co-owner Amy Levin says the beer should start hitting the shelves in the region in the next 24 hours – and she would know too, since she not only does the marketing and books, but she drives the beer to the stores and bars herself. This is the brewery’s third beer, after the flagship IPA and the brown ale. Brewmaster Aron Levin is a working firefighter in Windsor, so the couple named their new brewery after the patron saint of firefighters.
