Brooklyn man registers a beer as emotional support animal

Brooklyn man registers a beer as emotional support animal

For many people, beer is an important source of emotional support. The yeast that is essential to making beer is a living thing. Therefore, why not register a beer as an emotional support animal ? Right? Well, except for the part about how yeast is classified as a fungus, not an animal, but when you are lonely or have allergies, anything is fair game to become a pet.

But let’s not deal with...

Eli Manning gets his own beer

Eli Manning gets his own beer

Eli Manning, the longtime New York Giants quarterback and noted beer fan, will announce his retirement tomorrow. (Question: if it’s already known that he will be announcing his retirement, is it really an announcement?) Naturally, he will be showered with praise and reminiscences of highlights of his glorious NFL career. (Please don’t ask me what any of those are. I work very hard to avoid...

New drunk driving laws tank Vietnam’s beer sales

New drunk driving laws tank Vietnam’s beer sales

The beer industry is not pleased with what’s going on in Vietnam. Not pleased at all. Beginning January 1, the Vietnamese government began a serious crackdown on the nation’s alcohol consumption, doubling fines for driving under the influence (now as high as $1,725) and increasing the drivers’ possible license suspension period from five months to two years. In the 20 days since it’s been...

There are certain inadvisable things you do because they seem like they might make a pretty good story later: jump out of a plane, swim with sharks, go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line. But my friend Zach Freeman and I had a much simpler dream: to conquer the body-and-mind-wrecking...

Anheuser-Busch experiments with brewing beer in space

It’s only Tuesday, but already there have been a number of news stories from the infinite vastness of space: First, that 100-million-year old interstellar comet that entered our solar system back in the spring is finally passing through our corner of the expanse. Second, the United States has officially established their sixth armed forces branch—the Space Force—and announced that the...

Brewery asked to remove cans displaying NSFW reindeer games

Brewery asked to remove cans displaying NSFW reindeer games

Craft brewers, perhaps the scrappiest team of underdogs in American culture, have never shied away from taking risks . These risks almost always succeed in building buzz, even if (or especially if?) the brewery in question gets slapped with a cease and desist letter or two along the way.

This week, Charlotte Agenda reports, the misbehaving brewery is Sycamore Brewing, a Charlotte, North...

The Catholic Order of Cistercians of the Strict Observance—commonly known as “the Trappists”—traces its roots all the way back to the sixth century. It was then that Benedict of Nursia wrote The Rule of St. Benedict: A detailed list of spiritual laws that specifies how its members should live. These laws dictate...

Nation’s oldest craft brewery saved in the nick of time

Several weeks ago, the Boulder Beer Company—which at 40 years old is America’s oldest craft brewery—announced plans to end all distribution. According to the Denver Business Journal, owner Gina Day explained in an October Facebook post that the leaders of the brewery “all want to see it live on,” and that to keep the brewery afloat financially, the team needed to scale back to taproom-only...

This guy can help you Drink Better Beer

This guy can help you Drink Better Beer

Drinking better beer isn’t all about what’s in your glass. It’s about the glass itself, the bartender who set it in front of you, the draft system that dispensed the beer, and the bar you’re sitting in. That’s the chief message of Drink Better Beer, the new book from New York City–based beer author Joshua Bernstein. With advice from brewers, hop researchers, and other experts, Drink Better...

Dispute over 99-pack of beer resolved in best way possible

Dispute over 99-pack of beer resolved in best way possible

In 2014, a few beers and the “yes, and” spirit of a marketing/design meeting led to a first in beer packaging: the 99-can case. When Austin Beerworks released it to promote its new Peacemaker Anytime Ale, the novelty made headlines around the country. Fast forward to December 2017, and the staff of Austin Beerworks woke up Christmas morning to find that PBR had released a 99-pack of its beer...

These are competitive times for breweries, but even in a year of acquisitions and mergers , New Belgium’s announcement yesterday that it plans to sell to Tokyo-based Kirin Holdings was huge news. New Belgium—brewer of Fat Tire, the Voodoo series of IPAs, and award-winning Belgian-style beers—is the fourth-largest craft brewery in America, and has been a pioneer in the industry since its...

The milkman can bring you beer now (only in London, sorry)

The era of the milkman has been on the decline for decades, but one company in London isn’t ready to say goodbye. Dairy giant Milk & More is attempting to bring customers into the milk-delivery fold with an unconventional offer: beer pairings. (What else?)

Having relaunched its delivery services last year with a new fleet of electric vans, Milk & More is now making good on its “and more”...

New Budweiser ad reminds us to drink water between beers

Until recently, beer ads haven’t been known for thinking outside the box. If you watched televised sports growing up, the beer ads you saw likely all blend together in your memory, creating one supercut of beach volleyball, Swedish bikini teams, and talking animals. The tired, bro-centric image is slowly changing as beer companies realize they need to appeal to customers beyond the males...
