PubCakes began about three years ago, born of a love baking and a passion for drinking a lot of craft beer. Originally, PubCakes was simply an unlikely and unknown hobby/obsession, until Misty decided to unleash its awesomeness upon the world. The journey towards the PubCakes of today has been a slow and arduous one. Beginning in 2009, these tasty treats were only available by delivery and at the most hip of beer bars. From 2009-2011 Misty was a lone PubCake-making machine, sleeping only hours a day with intermittent bouts of sobriety. By divine providence (aka craigslist) Misty met Mandi Post and in February 2011 moved into a shared storefront with the best darn coffee shop in town, Treehouse Coffee Co. After two years of sharing this teeny-tiny-itty-bitty storefront, both businesses were bursting at the seams and agreed that it was time to move on. Now PubCakes is focusing efforts on farmer’s markets, catering events, and the most exciting element, Craft Beer Cake Mix. (Details to be announced soon!)
About Misty (founder):
Misty spent six years in the US Navy as a linguist where she developed an exceptionally high tolerance for beer. After her enlistment she moved back home to San Diego where she learned that quality outranks quantity while exploring the finest hipster-esque beer bars in North and South Park. During one of her drunken escapades she realized it’d be fun to put craft beer into a cake and thus, PubCakes was born.
