Bear Invades Wisconsin Grocery Store in Search of Beer


It’s no surprise that beverage culture is EXPLODING in America, I just wasn’t aware that woodland creatures had caught fine beverage fever as well.

According to an article on Fox News, Bear Makes Beer Run in Wisconsin:

Shoppers in a Wisconsin grocery store got an unexpected surprise when a 125-pound black bear wandered inside and headed straight for the beer cooler. See the full post »

I’m on a Bike: New Belgium Gangsta Style


Did you see Andy Samberg & Lonely Island’s “I’m on a Boat” (featuring a Santana wine mention)? Well, this video is like that, but better, and with bikes and boats and awesome New Belgium apparel.

Oh yes, this video is for real.

“Racing fans ‘limited’ to 24 beers a day”


Ford Racecar

It’s official. Australians know how to party. American spectators have been known to rush the field nude like maniacs after 3 or 4 beers, and the Australians are pounding “slabs” of beer?

According to Reuters, Racing fans ‘limited’ to 24 beers a day:

Adult fans at one of Australia’s most popular sports races, the Bathurst 1000, will be limited to one ‘slab’ of beer a day – or 24 275 ml cans – as police focus on reducing alcohol-related crime…Wine lovers must make do with no more that four liters of cask wine per day and combinations of the options would not be allowed, the police statement said.

Being that absinthe isn’t mentioned, I’m assuming there is no limit. Par-ty. I’m talking Powderfinger, Kangaroos, and bacon-wrapped Vegi-mite! HEYO

AB-InBev Sells Shamu & Friends for $2.7 Billion OR How to Turn Shamu Into Bud Light


Sea World

The Associated Press is reporting that AB-Inbev has sold five theme parks to the Blackstone Group for $2.7 billion. That is a lot of money…enough to buy you approximately 5.4 billion cans of Bud Light at the right bar at the right time in Las Vegas. I’m cool with this, as long as I can still access a bounty of Bud Light in plastic cups near the Stingray Lagoon and then go take a nap in the Penguin Encounter.

The Happening: World Beer Festival


World Beer Festival

The people at All About Beer Magazine know how to throw a party, a reputation well defended this last Saturday in Durham, NC at the World Beer Festival. Pints were pounded and worlds were rocked at this epic beer tasting.

According to co-owner and publisher Daniel Bradford, “As the leading beer magazine in America, we have invested three decades into building local beer communities and educating the public in beer quality and appreciation. The World Beer Festival has been an important part of our mission. Since our first Durham festival in 1996, we have seen the beer community grow in strength, diversity and passion.

The World Beer Festival will also host events next year in Columbia, SC (January 16); Raleigh, NC (April 24); and Richmond, VA (June 12) before returning for the fifteenth Durham fest (October 2).

Olde English and Milwaukee’s Best Win Big at GABF 2009


Olde English 800

Two dark horse candidates medaled at this year’s Great American Beer Festival. Milwaukee’s Best (some know it as The Beast) took gold in the American Style Cream Ale or Lager category. It beat out 23 other entries (mostly from craft breweries) on its way to the podium. Olde English 800 took silver in the International Style Pilsener category. It bested 11 other entrants.

Of course, the Big Three (Miller, Bud, Coors) took most of the American Style medals, but the moral of the story is that fine beverage can be found in surprising packages. So go ahead folks, drop two bones on a quart of one of these tasties and toast their victory!

Craft Beer in a Can!


Dale's Pale Ale

Playing on the Bud Light commercial that’s been loved and loathed recently as a cheap ploy to get your attention, I had my first Dale’s Pale Ale a couple of days ago. Dale’s is made by Oskar Blues, the first craft brewery to achieve great success with packaging craft beers exclusively in cans.

I like to think of myself as a pretty open minded beer drinker, so I wasn’t expecting the shock I got when I took my first sip. Sure, Guinness, Young’s Double Chocolate Stout, and Red Stripe all come in cans, but this was amazing. See the full post »
