How much beer do you drink in a week?  How much do you spend on beer in a week?  I typically have a beer, maybe 2 in any given night, maybe an average of 7-10 beers a week.  Let’s say the average beer costs $3 (somewhere between $5 bombers and $1.50 6-pack bottle prices) and I come to $20-$30 a week.  Not too bad if you ask me.  Apparently, it could be much worse.  (more…)

The rumors have been out there.  InBev was attempting, what some described as a hostile takeover, to acquire Anhuerser-Busch for $47 billion.  Apparently, tossing in an extra $5 billion removes all forms of hostility.  For those who need help, that means InBev ponied up $52 billion for Anhueser-Busch, creating the new company Anhuerser-Busch InBev.  (more…)

Not sure if you follow global news, but a growing philanthropic trend in developing countries is micro-credit.  The Nobel Peacwe Prize in 2006 was given to Muhammad Yunus for his effort to bring micro-credit to the poor people of Blangladesh who couldn’t qualify for typical bank approved loans.  While I dare not compare American craft brewers to the poor of Bangladesh, this practice of micro-credit has come to America and the craft brewing industry, and this is thanks in a large part to the Boston Beer Company.  (more…)

I’ve killed Los Angeles in the past.  There’s little to no craft brew culture going on in the greater Los Angeles area, and for an area that is home to some 13 million people, that is unacceptable.  Apparently, this is not the fault of the beer drinker, as craft beer fans do exist in the Los Angeles area.  (more…)

While I am not against driving long distances to obtain quality beer, with rising gas prices and domestic responsibilities, this is becoming harder to do. Thankfully, some breweries are able to ship their beer around this great state of California, saving us the time of driving to far off corners of the state. One of these breweries was North Coast Brewing in Fort Bragg. Notice I said “was.”  (more…)

On May 29th, a fire broke out at Matt Brewing Company in Utica, NY.  The fire spared the brewhouse but dealt a significant blow to the bottling operation and completely destroying the canning facilities.  While there is little presence here on the West Coast, their Saranac line is quite popular back East.  So what’s going on with Matt Brewing since the fire?  Well, I’ll tell you.  (more…)
