GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- Sitting in a classroom, anxiously awaiting his fate, SF State alumnus Samuel Molmud said he was laser-focused when judges from local publications came to his contemporary magazine class to judge the students’ ideas and business plans. His Liquid Bread Magazine project — focused on the beer scene in the Bay Area — won the judges over unanimously then, and now, as a fully fledged online publication, has won SF Weekly’s 2015 Best Drink Publication award. “When you are doing something new, its not always easy to tell when you’re hitting the right notes, so getting the nod from SF Weekly was a pleasant temperature gauge on how we were doing,” Molmud said. Molmud graduated from the Journalism Department in Fall 2014 and is the founder, owner and editor-in-chief of Liquid Bread Magazine in San Francisco.
