We have a crowd in the bar this week, and they are ready to taste stupendous beers from Creature Comforts Brewing out of Athens, GA! We were able to get ahold of three brews: Athena Berliner Weisse, Tropicalia IPA, and the Koko Buni Milk Porter!
Some weeks there’s way too much news, and this is one of them! First up is The New York Times reporting that a Chinese brewer has made an offer to buy SABMiller’s stake in CR Snow, followed by The Boston Globe revealing that a Massachusetts beer distributor will pay a $2.6 million fine in a pay-to-play case, and then Quora asking why were some styles of beer called dry beer when all beer contains a lot of water? Next we have The Daily Star (UK) spotlighting a beer with as much protein as a sirloin steak, Eater’s tale of how sweet, boozy root beer found an audience among men, and Reuters on German beer purity being in question after an environmental group finds weed-killer traces. We close up with another from The New York Times showing that in Singapore there is craft beer where you’d least expect it and Paste with a provocative piece on sexuality in craft beer.
Last week for our #caskquiz we asked “what distillery would you like to see use beer barrels?” while this week we want to know “what’s your take on using sexuality to sell craft beer?”
