This is How We Cruz: Annie Pautsch of Brew Cruz Tours Us Around Santa Cruz [VIDEOS]

To bring to life some of great stories and places you’ll find in Santa Cruz, we created a pair of videos that highlight some of our most captivating residents. You’ll see us drink beer with the Santa Cruz Derby Girls, toast with New Bohemia Brewing Co. owner Dan Satterthwaite, and explore downtown’s bustling farmer’s market with restaurateur Zach Davis and the director of Santa Cruz Community Farmers’ Markets, Nesh Dhillon. For our host, we tapped Annie Pautsch, owner of Santa Cruz’s beloved beer tour company Brew Cruz. Annie shuttled us around town in a tricked-out school bus that she affectionately refers to as ‘Betty Jane.’
