In this issue, we’ve got some great bits from @taranurin on Puerto Rico’s growing craft beer scene, quite a lot of stuff about coffee trends, @beervana’s review of the decade in beer, and a little rant about why California’s AB5 will be a prime example of the law of unintended consequences. I also wrote a piece on the long-awaited opening of Brewdog Outpost Dublin.
I attended what is probably the world’s largest Christmas Beer Festivals in Essen, Belgium. I sampled 66 beers, and somehow, my liver didn’t explode.
Five years in the making, BrewDog finally opens Outpost Dublin, and it’s a beautiful place to enjoy a pint.
In this week’s issue, we cover how genetically-engineered yeast might help prevent stale beer, why craft breweries should be worried about distributor consolidation and not craft seltzer, @ATJbeer’s love letter to Orval, and the definitive answer to who produces the best coffee in the world.
This issue covers the difficulties of making it as a craft brewer, why IGAs are the best (@vinepair), the incredible story of Martinelli’s, and a piece by @boakandbailey which shares the changing state of local pubs in Bristol.
More from my trip in Athens, including the beers we drank and pubs we visited!
Thoughts on Athens, warm cultures, friendly cats, and traveling light.
In this issue, we’ve got news on New Belgium, @brewerstats breaks down the 2019 GABF winners, @beervana asks who really came up with ‘juicy’, and @thebeernut asks who is to blame for America calling all weissbiers hefeweizen.
In the latest issue, we highlight the AB-InBev acquisition of Craft Brew Alliance, NPR looks into whether beer is good for post-workout rehydration, @chrishall questions if the UK beer scene is mature, and @beervana gives us some insight on caramel malts.
There’s a month and a half left in this decade, and it’s time to answer the latest Twitter call-to-action. Here’s what I’ve done in the last 10 years.
