uKeg: Keep A Growler Of Craft Brew Cold, Fresh For A Long Time - CBS Chicago

uKeg: Keep A Growler Of Craft Brew Cold, Fresh For A Long Time - CBS Chicago | International Beer News | Scoop.it

Buying a growler of beer is a popular way to enjoy limited edition craft beer offerings or to share a brew with others.

 

Properly filled, an unopened growler can keep the beer fresh for about a month, some beer experts say, although the time can vary. Others say it might last for a week or two. However, once it is opened, drinkers may have just 36 hours to finish the beer (a growler typically is 64 ounces) before it goes flat, according to Dogfish Head Quality Control Manager Rebecca Newman.

That can be a deal-breaker for folks who worry their investment would spoil before they could drink it all... [click headline for more]

In 1999, The American Homebrewers Association declared November 1 National Learn To Homebrew day. The craft beer culture is going strong in Louisville, as evidenced by the Louisville Mayor’s recent pledge to help grow local craft breweries.

A Highly Unscientific Ranking of Crazy-Old German Beers

A Highly Unscientific Ranking of Crazy-Old German Beers | International Beer News | Scoop.it

It makes sense that some of the world’s oldest continuously operating businesses are breweries: Demand for beer is almost as sure a thing as death and taxes. And in Europe, “continuously operating” has a different meaning than it does in the relatively youthful New World. But that doesn’t make the staying power of Germany’s oldest breweries—most of them originally housed in monasteries—any less breathtaking.

 

The oldest brewery in America is Yuengling, founded in 1829. The oldest brewery in Germany (and the world) is Weihenstephan, founded in 1040. 1040. That’s 26 years before the Norman conquest of England, 175 years before the Magna Carta, 477 years before Martin Luther’s 95 Theses, 736 years before the Declaration of Independence...

The 11 Ski Towns with the Best Craft Booze | International Beer News | Scoop.it

Fact: Great après drinks make for even better stories about the day's runs.

Luckily, many ski bums are opening craft alcohol operations. Take the 10th Mountain Whiskey and Spirit Company. The Kickstarter-funded operation was founded by two Vail locals who realized that distilling—unlike skiing—would pay the bills.

And it's not just happening in Vail. One look at this map of microbrewery distribution shows the astonishing connection between microbreweries and top ski areas. The Jackson Hole region alone is home to 27 microbreweries, while the I-70 corridor between Denver and Aspen boasts 19—and that's not including Boulder... [click headline for more]

Brewer recreates 170-yr-old taste of Belgian beer | The Asian Age | International Beer News | Scoop.it

A Finnish brewery has recreated a Belgian beer from bottles that sank 170 years ago on a merchant ship in the Baltic Sea, giving connoisseurs a chance to taste the tipple of their great-great-great-grandfathers.

The brew was reproduced thanks to elaborate research by Finnish and Belgian scientists who teamed up after the wreckage was discovered off Finland’s Aaland Islands in 2010. Divers exploring 12 metres down found only five bottles of beer next to 145 champagne bottles — confirmed as the world’s oldest drinkable bubbly — in the long-lost wreck... [click headline for more]

Not since Hillary Rodham Clinton ordered a shot of whiskey to chase her brew during her 2008 presidential run has the campaign trail felt so awash in booze.

Beer has played a notable role in the 2014 elections. Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) famously helped a tailgating LSU student do a keg stand. Senate candidate Scott Brown (R) attended a suds-soaked tailgate earlier this month at the University of New Hampshire, then campaigned at a craft-beer festival last week.

There’s been a lot written about the explosion of small and independent craft brewers in the USA. Certainly 3,100 + breweries in the United States is a remarkable circumstance, that has in large part shown the beer world a way forward. America is a view to the future for many other countries that are developing their own small and independent craft beer culture.
