The Craft Beer “Revolution” Will Be Crowdfunded

A brewery starting a Kickstarter or Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign isn’t unusual these days. Craft brewers from Maine to North Carolina to California have raised money to install fermentors, buy more kegs, or expand their barrel-aging program.

Convert Beers: American-Made Mexican Lagers

In this Convert Beers column, I introduce gateway styles of beer that might help convert drinkers to craft beer. With the heat of summer at its peak, it’s hard to think about anything other than patio-sippers, so without further ado I give you the Mexican Lager.

Easy Irish Stout

What? Stout in the middle of summer? Absolutely! Irish stout is the perfect dark beer for warm weather.
