For quite a while I was getting my posts out first thing in the morning. Then it was pretty standard to let it slip toward late morning or midday. Now this week I find myself letting the post slide into the afternoon or sometimes the evening. I like to think that I will whip things back into shape for next week.
Thanks again to The Wife and Seattle Jeff . . . .
- Since two people sent me links to this article I guess that make sit important enough to lead with today. Selfishly I do hate it when I lose access to a brewery’s beers in my area, but I do think that selling more regionally is the way it should be. It just means discovering new beers while traveling will be even more enjoyable.
- In your Budweiser packaging design news of the week I bring you the bowtie.
- Not that I would choose it over a more local beer, but it is nice to know that I can probably find a Kirin if I ever get the chance to travel in Brazil. I do love me some Kirin with my sushi.
- I do not know how many states or areas have officially banned this type of alcoholic beverage, but it seems like it may just have to disappear altogether very soon.
- One way to forget about a time where the sale of alcohol was completely prohibited is to host a beer festival featuring more than 100 beers.
- Having never actually been there I only had a vague knowledge of their wine history, but it seems like craft brewing is growing strong roots there as well.
- I have not been to that many beer dinners (not really sure why) but I thought this short list of pointers was pretty much spot on. I especially support the one where he suggests that “boring and predictable” is just that.
- Just like my lack of experience in beer dinners I have only been on one cruise in my life. I did really enjoy it though and I fully support the introduction of pubs on those ships.
- It is nice to have a list of excuses handy to explain why your sales are down during a time where others in the industry are doing just fine.
- I understand why they have to alter to restrictions of the law to match the original intentions, but any legislation that does not allow for a brewery to serve their own beer on premise is just ridiculous to me.
- I do not recall a time where I closed a beer news post with something about wine, but if that was ever to be appropriate I think this article fits. Surely it will take some time to gain significant traction, but I expect that more and more wines will become available in this type of vessel.
