It occurred to me just now while putting together this post that I probably need to throw together a few beer goals for 2012. They may overlap a bit with my overall goals for the next year, but I have to sit down and think about that. Perhaps I will share a top five (or so) on Monday next week.
The last news post of the year . . .
- Knowing my recent efforts to be more serious about my beer related studies The Wife passed along an article explaining why beer (and some complimentary wine) education is important.
- If you want a full report of how all of the top selling regular and light beers compare to each other you will have to wait until next week. A little sneak peek is available now.
- With business continuing to be good among an otherwise down economy craft breweries are deciding to either continue expansion or to pull back just a bit.
- In the beers I can not get here in Florida department (save for the Nitro Milk Stout).
- I think the collaboration part of this article is cool, but I am more surprised that the craft beer week is taking place at the coldest time of year for this city.
- Over the last year I have enjoyed some really good craft ciders so I am pretty excited to read about more and more being available in the future.
- Here is a 2011 state of the brewery announcement in a fun style only they have.
- It seems you can dismantle a large brewery, ship it thousands of miles, and have it up and running in a pretty short period of time.
- Coming to the end of the year means we get to look back on what beer trends and/or innovations we enjoyed over the last 12 months.
- Unless that is what you really want to do, staying small only lasts for so long.
- There may be a better way for me to close my year of beer news, but a little highlight of one of my favorite breweries works for me. Really the announcement of the new pilsner is what I was excited to share.
