All beer is for all people, women included. Good thoughts by Naptown Pint

Beer for women. Ugh. I've written about this topic before, but it seems that no matter how much time goes by, progress in this arena seems as elusive as my ability to not leave the apartment each morning without having to double-back for my keys.

Budweiser Is Playing to a Center That Isn't There Anymore

"This campaign attempts to connect the Budweiser we drink now, which is a product of globalist ventures consolidating power, with the promise of America as a by-your-own-bootstraps entrepreneurial culture." -- heh..

America has been changing rapidly. Have Budweiser's advertising campaigns kept up with the times?

(San Diego, CA) – Earlier this week, we heard rumblings coming out of veteran craft brewery Green Flash Brewing that a few layoffs happened within the warehouse. When we talked to a few sales reps for comment, we were told that “numbers are up, however not where management wants them to be, and that...

A growing number of brewers and retailers are realizing that growlers are a terrible way to serve beer. Maybe you should, too.

With a brewery in Germany, Stone tests the appetite for American craft beers in the land of Oktoberfest

Nice perspective on Stone's expansion and how to manage a multi-continental craft brewery

When Stone Brewing released in 1997 its well-known Arrogant Bastard Ale, it was a hoppy revolt against an American beer market defined by bland corporate lagers. Now, thanks to craft brewers like Stone, it’s easy to find once obscure beers, from India pale ales to smoked porters, in dive bars and su...
