Beer links for the day after the MLK Day Jr. holiday
Sorry folks that I didn’t get these up yesterday, but let’s kick off the week with another edition of beer links.
In the News!
America’s oldest brewery is now its biggest. (Eat Drink Explore)
Yay for Yuengling! This is one of Brian’s favorite beers, for me it is always the right choice if it comes down to this or a macro.
America’s 100 best beer bars. (Draft Magazine)
It’s biased of course, all lists are but I think many of these would be worth going to and tipping a pint. See where yours stack up.
Learn about cheese, chocolate, and more food pairings atIsthmus Beer and Cheese Fest 2012 (Isthmus Daily Page)
This one is for Sarah of Beer Meets Cheese. Seriously though there are times I really miss living in Madison.
Beer shipments fall in 2011 to lowest level since 2003 (Los Angeles Times)
It’s the macros that are continuing to loss ground, craft brews are ascendant but not picking up the slack fast enough.
1000 beer kegs worth £100k seized in raid. (Morning Advertiser)
It’s your weekly dose of beer crime. This time though it’s the keg itself that is valuable. For those of you keeping track at home that is $153,350.70 worth of beer kegs.
Beer Bills: What’s ahead? (Clarion Ledger)
Oh Mississippi, you need to get with the times. You would think a state that poor would be open to the possibilities of increased income by developing a welcome attitude to craft beer and breweries.
University beer brewing plans fizzle, draw media attention (lsureveille.com)
The line that made me laugh was “an alcohol friendly culture.” Seriously?! That is 90% of most colleges in this country.
Welcome to the Cambodian beer scene people, because that’s what we are about on this blog, world wide beer!
2 East Nashville breweries to take over Fluffo factory (The Tennessean)
I’m plugging this because I interviewed Mike Causey, owner and brewer for Broadcast Brewery, one of the two that will be making that factory their home. Look for it on Thursday and Friday.
|I won't miss the opportunity to |
share early Sumerian beer drinking
(Originally found here)
Was it beer, no, not how we would define it, but it certainly was a major foundation of what we drink today 5000 years later. I don't think this in any way undermines the impact of Sumerian beer culture on the world.
Do you know how much beer is in your pint? Bet you don’t (Vancouver Sun)
Pint is one of those words in beer drinking culture that we toss around probably too casually. I know I’m guilty of it. Will the truth come out? We’ll just have to wait and see. It is good to see Canadians getting fired up about their beer.
A bit of a late start this week, but we will make it up to you with Brian’s first review of a Saranac winter warmer. It’ll be on the site tomorrow. On Thursday and Friday check out our conversation with Mike Causey, owner and brewer for Broadcast Brewery, a new brewing venture getting established in Nashville. We skipped Welcome to Your Weekend this last weekend but it will be back this Saturday.
