It’s time to change things up with incredible ciders from our friends at Blake’s Hard Cider! Founder Andrew Blake and Sales Maestro John Beal drove all the way down from Michigan with some tasty ciders for us to try: Flannel Mouth, El Chavo, Blushing Bourbon, and the spectacular Amshire!
It may be winter, but there’s always news! We start with The Street’s list of 5 beer styles the brewers will want you to drink in 2016, followed by Forbes’ question will Carlsberg ever sell beer in wooden bottles? and then The San Diego Reader telling us where to get a giant can of beer to go. We continue with Paste’s 7 ridiculous, but kind of awesome, beer gadgets, then Engadget revealing the app Untappd is going 'to the next level, and we close with Eater on why farm-to-keg brewing is the next big beer trend.
Last week for our #caskquiz we asked “do you have a specific routine for tasting varying styles in order?” and this week we are asking “what name do you like for the can-growler: crowler, purrowler, ar something else?”
We love hearing from you!
