Have extra spent grain to get rid of? Take 10 minutes to mix it with some flour, water, yeast, and salt, wait, then bake it for an easy, fresh bread.
Stone and our favorite comedy It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia have combined minds to come up with Dayman, a coffee IPA that will help you fight the Nighman in your life. Dayman Coffee IPA is a collaboration with Illinois-based Two Brothers Brewing Co. and Chicago-based Aleman, a brewing collective that first made the beer earlier in the year [...]
A reporter from the British publication The Press recently discovered a 1977 vintage "Jubilee Real Ale," which he decided to open and taste. Fortunately, it didn't kill him. In fact, it fooled some beer snobs who felt it may be from Scottish brewery Brewdog or even gypsy brewer Mikkeller. I wiped some of the dust from [...]
Sporting events have long been a place to get ripped off buying mediocore beer. It's not uncommon to pay $8-$9 for a drink, but you expect it and build it into the cost of going to a game. But pinnacle of sport, the Olympics, is reaching to be the pinnacle of beer pricing. Organizers are [...]
As craft beer continues to grow, it continues to diversify. Unlike the old macrobreweries, built on advertising directed almost exclusively toward men, the notoriously open-minded craft beer world is seeing a growing role for women — both as consumers and brewers. From the LA Times: Being a female beer producer means standing out, said Rosemarie Certo, co-founder [...]
It’s Memorial Day weekend and you have nothing to do but brew, drink, and eat. But you could make your future brewing a little more productive with the very clever — and slightly challenging — UberFridge. Homebrewer Elco Jacobs has posted a very detailed and easy-to-follow guide on how you turn an Arduino Nano and Asus [...]
Erik Meyers from Mystery Brewing has done something few others have managed: he's successfully used social fundraising tool Kickstarter to fund, in part, his brewery. But, according to Meyers, it's not all sunshine and roses — and it may be impossible to replicate what he did. In a fantastic blog post, Meyers details exactly what [...]
Remember the movie Lost in Translation? Bill Murray plays aging American actor (and famous person) Bob Harris, stuck in Japan to do an ad for Suntory whiskey. Well, replace the fictional famous person Bob Harris with nonfictional and aging Houston Rockets Star Tracy McGrady, and you’ve got the same basic setup here. Sedrin (or Xeujin) beer — [...]
In an interesting collaboration between old and new, Bell's Brewery in Michigan managed to buy some fantastic brewing equipment — along with a little history. John Stroh III, whose great-great-grandfather founded Stroh Brewing Co. in Detroit in 1850, and John Mallett, the production manager at Bell's Brewery Inc., had lunch together more than two years ago. During [...]
Innovation in pint glasses tends to come in the form of shape or weight, though not much has changed in decades (save for the famous Sam Adams glass). But clever marketers came up with a brilliant way to make you want to fill your glass with a dark beer: screen a special QR code onto [...]
Paste Magazine loves hip things, and there’s nothing hipper than craft beer and graphic design. They picked 15 craft beer designs that they love, and we have to agree. Included in the list is the IPA can design for our friends at West Sixth Brewing in Lexington, Kentucky, along with some of craft beer’s standard best. Click [...]
Charlie Papazian, word-famous beer lover, recently wrapped up his 2012 BeerCity USA poll. What he ended up with was BeerCities USA, a statistical tie between Asheville, NC and Grand Rapids, MI. From Papazian: Voting for the annual BeerCity USA poll is over. From the start it was clear that communities from several areas of the United States intended [...]
One good thing macrobrewers have done with their monstrous marketing budgets is create some very memorable and enjoyable advertising. Over the years, the ads haven't been quite as slick. We pulled together 15 retro beer advertisements into this gallery to take a look back on what used to be.
As much as we like drinking beer, we like cooking with it too. If you're looking for a unique mustard to go with your beer brats this spring, try this beer mustard recipe.
Shooting a movie but can't land that lucrative product placement deal? We've got your covered. Over at The Earl Hayes Press, you can find a wide assortment of fake beer bottles, cans, and packaging until one macrobrewer drops a few thousand in your lap.

You can learn a lot from old hombrewers. But sometimes old myths don’t die. We pulled six myths from the homebrewing either and put them to rest. 1. Don’t use aluminum brewing pots. This myth just costs you money. Aluminum brew kettles work just fine — despite what you may read on message boards. They [...]
Having a calm Monday? You won’t be after you read about how a Budweiser distributor in Tennessee is bullying a small-time brewer. The war for tap space has been going for a long time, but Calfkiller Breweing Company is being attacked on a whole new level. From the brewery: Grab your Kool aid kids and take a seat. Here’s the [...]
Brewers from around the world received awards from an elite international panel of judges in the 2012 Brewers Association World Beer Cup.

A 17.7 percent increase over [...]
Opening a brewery has been a dream for many homebrewers for decades. With the drastically shifting marketplace away from macrobrewers and toward craft brewers, many have been able to open breweries and we’ve all benefited from greater variety in the marketplace.
