10 Super Bowl craft beers that deserve more airtime

10 Super Bowl craft beers that deserve more airtime | International Beer News | Scoop.it

Craft beer brewers don’t get a whole lot of air time on Super Bowl Sunday, but they typically find a way to stay in the game.

As a rule, craft beer doesn’t do Super Bowl commercials. In 2010, Anheuser-Busch InBev BUD, +0.82% paid more than $1 billion to wrest the NFL’s official beer sponsorship away from MillerCoors and its Coors Light brand and hand it to Budweiser. More importantly, A-B has been paying an undisclosed amount of money to make Budweiser the exclusive beer sponsor of the Super Bowl since 1988. ... ]click headline for more]

Why these craft beer pioneers hate snobs

Why these craft beer pioneers hate snobs | International Beer News | Scoop.it

When Widmer Brothers and Deschutes first started brewing in the mid- to late-1980s, craft beer didn’t exist, never mind a community built around it.

The term “craft beer” didn’t show up until Vince Cottone put it in his book “Good Beer Guide: Breweries and Pubs of the Pacific Northwest” in 1986. That was about two years after Kurt and Rob Widmer began setting up their Portland, Ore., brewery. Even when Gary Fish opened Deschutes Brewing Co. as a brewpub in Bend, Ore., in 1988, what is now known as craft beer was still being referred to as “specialty beer” or “microbrew.” ...

Seven Craft Brewers That Changed the Midwest Beer Scene : Feast Magazine | International Beer News | Scoop.it

Craft brewing’s roots in the Midwest trace back to 19th century immigrants who brought their knowledge of beer-making from Europe to the U.S. In St. Louis, Anheuser-Busch, Lemp Brewing Co., Heim Brewery, Falstaff Brewing Co., Imperial Brewing Co. and others defined the Midwest’s original set of commercial brewers, but only Anheuser-Busch and Falstaff survived Prohibition. Their mass-market beers, alongside national brands like MillerCoors, dominated the U.S. domestic market for decades... [click headline for more]

It is 3:30 p.m. on a Saturday, but the din at Threes, the newest brewpub to join the city’s craft-beer scene—just a short walk from Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn—screams midnight.

Will 2015 Be the Year of a Craft Beer Pendulum Swing?

Will 2015 Be the Year of a Craft Beer Pendulum Swing? | International Beer News | Scoop.it

Over the better part of a decade, craft beer devotion has become synonymous with a voracious appetite for over-the-top bitterness. The trend coincided with the proliferation of modern hops varietals high in alpha acids — the compounds responsible for those grapefruit-laced, rusted-tin characteristics. While some brewers boast proudly of a so-called "lupulin threshold shift," wherein beer drinkers' palates slowly migrate toward triple and quintuple IPAs, other brewers are bucking the trend, seeking to swing the pendulum back to a more balanced centerline...

Lower alcohol craft beers continue to flourish

Lower alcohol craft beers continue to flourish | International Beer News | Scoop.it

Sometimes less is more, especially when it comes to a swelling segment of the craft brewing market.

Craft brewers have thrown everything into their wort kettles — literally everything from hops and malt to chocolate and smoked pork — during the past 30 years to garner droves of adoring followers. But somewhere along the way they overlooked one huge niche in the market: low-alcohol, full-flavor “session” beers.

Growing taste for craft beer keys home brewing surge

Growing taste for craft beer keys home brewing surge | International Beer News | Scoop.it

When Gary Holmes and Aaron Libera opened their home brewery business here nearly three years ago, their shop was tucked in the back corner of a German delicatessen and consisted of a few shelves stacked with malts, containers and starter kits for people looking to make their own beer.

The Sanford Homebrew Shop has since moved out of that tiny space, and today the pair oversees a larger store. Fifty pound bags of malt are stacked waist-high near the front door. The shelves are stocked with a variety of stainless steel brewing pots, hoses and other equipment. The shop also offers classes for first time brewers... [click headline for more]

WASHINGTON —It's a story almost as old as alcohol itself. A fight starts about one thing and, once beer gets involved, things escalate quickly. In this case, the underlying issue is a proposal by the Obama administration to expand the authority of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Army Corps of Engineers under the landmark Clean Water Act of 1972.

Although the process sounds arcane — more suited to a pub quiz than a barstool conversation — brewers and farmers are paying close attention because the issue could affect beer price and quality... [click headline for more]

A storm in a beer glass is raging in Belgium. Traditional brewers are sour about “beer creators”—Internet-savvy startups who create recipes then employ other Belgian brewers to make the final product.

“They don’t get their hands dirty, they don’t have pain in their backs, the only thing those guys do in a workday is sit in front of a computer,” said Yvan de Baets, a co-founder of Brussels’ Brasserie de la Senne, a brewery in the Belgian capital... [CLICK HEADLINE FOR MORE]
