'Beers-ness' is booming as microbreweries experience rise in demand | International Beer News | Scoop.it

 

A Glasgow microbrewery has applied to build a second site in the East End of the city, as demand for their product has risen. The West brewery has applied for planning permission to build another site at Clyde Gateway East, as demand grows for traditional brewed beer.

 

They have been brewing their own blends in the iconic Templeton building on Glasgow Green since 2006. The number of micro breweries across the UK is at a 70 year high, with more than 50 microbreweries in Scotland making 300 types of beer.

New brewery tours launch in D.C. - Washington Business Journal

New brewery tours launch in D.C. - Washington Business Journal | International Beer News | Scoop.it

D.C.'s beer scene may be growing, but those who want to see some of the District's breweries in person are often faced with one inconvenient obstacle: Many of these production breweries are out of the way, requiring a car or several public transportation modes to get there.

A new company, D.C. Brew Tours, is hoping to help tackle the issue with coordinated brewery tours that make stops at some of the region's popular beer spots. The New England-based company already runs the service in Boston, Burlington, Vermont, and Portsmouth, New Hampshire. It launches in D.C. this week.... [click headline for more]

Where the Craft Breweries Are - Brewers Association

Where the Craft Breweries Are - Brewers Association | International Beer News | Scoop.it

As the craft industry grows and changes – many of the most interesting questions revolve around geography. What regions lead the curve on craft? Which are catching up? Where should we expect more breweries to pop up?

With this post, I want to delve into breweries, geography and population to try and understand where craft breweries are located and where they might be going next. To do so, I’ve matched our brewery database (now over 3,100 active breweries!) with population data by zip code tabulation area (ZCTA) from the 2010 U.S. Census... [click headline for more]

A Primer on Home Brewing - Los Angeles Magazine

A Primer on Home Brewing - Los Angeles Magazine | International Beer News | Scoop.it

Beer geeks live to brew—and to share their wares. But unless you know someone who ferments beer, sniffing out a sample can be tough. Commercial establishments are barred from serving the homemade stuff. Your best option: Attend a class or club meeting (see “One-Stop Hopping”). And look for Samuel Adams’s LongShot Variety Six-Pack, which features recipes from its annual home brew contest; winners (two civilians and one Samuel Adams employee) are named each October, with the six-pack arriving in spring....

Great Octoberfest Recipes Using Beer

Great Octoberfest Recipes Using Beer | International Beer News | Scoop.it

It's time to think about Octoberfest menus, and most Octoberfest celebrations include copious amounts of beer. The granddaddy of all Octoberfests in Munich, Germany, is all about beer, food and music.

While I am German by heritage, I am somewhat of a disgrace, because I really don't care for the taste of beer. But, I do like the depth of flavor achieved by cooking with beer. My friend who owns a package liquor store always asks what I am going to cook, when I go into the store and head for the beer cooler... [click headline or more]

Going Organic - Nova Scotia’s craft brewers tap into the organic beer trend | International Beer News | Scoop.it

Propeller's Organic Ale hit the shelves in early September, marking the brewery’s entry into a growing trend in beer. The Organic Ale caries a certified-organic label issued by Atlantic Certified Organic, the organization in Nova Scotia empowered by the federal government to issue organic certification. It’s the real deal.

“People are beginning to look for organic, not just in beer but in all of their products,” says Andrew Cooper, Propeller’s marketing director. “So it's just a natural transition for the consumer and for us as well.”

The Organic Ale is brewed at Propeller’s Dartmouth brewery. The location, Propeller’s second, opened in 2013 and is now responsible for over 95% of the brewery’s beer production...[click headline for more]

Craft beer: Top 10 UK Supermarket Buys

Craft beer: Top 10 UK Supermarket Buys | International Beer News | Scoop.it

The big breweries are keen to muscle in on the craft beer market and their often ineffectual “craft” ales are now commonplace in high street stores. But it is worth remembering that our supermarkets do stock some truly world class beers. 

 

You have to hand it to Britain’s major brewers and big drinks conglomerates; they are firmly across consumer trends. Craft beer had barely established itself as a new category in the UK, when they started leaping on the bandwagon. The market is now awash with craft-not-craft beers which, for all their trendy packaging, use of cascade and mosaic hops and adoption of du jour beer styles, still fall short on that crucial component – flavour...

Pity the poor beer judge. It’s not about a group of guys determining which six-pack is most chuggable while watching the game. It’s not about choosing the bottle with the fanciest label, or the brand with the flashiest advertising.

Hong Kong is a little late to the party, but local craft beers are starting to take off.
