I like beer.  In fact, you might say I love beer.  If you’re at a corporate restaurant, you’re given the option, a little 10 ounce beer, or a 25 ouncer.  Of course you take the 25 ouncer.  If they had a bigger one, you’d probably order that.  Wouldn’t you?  Well, that bigger beer is here.  The question is, can you handle it?  (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…)

What really excites me about the craft brewing industry are the anniversary and tribute releases.  They are typically only available once and you have to make sure you catch them while you can, or hear other people rave about them, knowing the brew will never pass over your lips.  So here’s some news on these special ales that will be coming soon to a beer store near you.  (more…)

R.I.P. Jay Mission

It’s always sad when we lose a member of the brewing community. In most cases, there is someone else who can best express the loss than I, so I will leave it to them. Jay Mission will definitely be missed.  (more…)

A couple weeks ago I mentioned that InBev was looking into acquiring Anheuser-Busch for $46 Billion. Well that number has now become a official. (more…)

When companies like Magic Hat and Pyramid merge, we craft brewing fans start wondering “What’s next?” with anticipation of access to new beers, and exposure to new brewing styles and techniques.  When MillerSAB and CoorsMolson merge within the U.S. Market, again we respond with “What’s next?”, anticipating new ways to produce bland, boring beverages for mass consumption.  (more…)

When you think of fosters, you think of big cans of easy to drink (to some) lager. It might be a stretch, but I could Fosters venturing into the craft beer market, maybe with a pale ale, or a Hefeweizen. Apparently, that $9 six-pack is a little too cheap for the boys down under. In honor of the 55th anniversary of the Queen’s coronation, Fosters is releasing the Crown Ambassador Reserver lager, and you’re not going to believe the price. (more…)
