What’s so hot about organic beer?

What’s so hot about organic beer?

You may have noticed that more Organic beer is ending up on the market lately and there are several reasons for this.  While many organic products are seeing lower sales, the production of organic beer is certainly not doing so.  In fact, it’s gaining ground as quickly as organic premium wines are!

Organic beer is gaining popularity due to a variety of causes.  One main cause is the continuing shift to healthier eating, which is in turn due to the many new viruses that seem to be cropping up each year.  By […]

Even the Midwest has hot craft breweries!

Even the Midwest has hot craft breweries!

The midwest is dotted with shockingly amazing hot spots and Chicago is one of them.  The history of this city is littered with accounts that date back to the early 1800s, although the city never gained the notoriety of neighboring cities such as Milwaukee in the brewing industry.  More is known of the organized crime ties than the several former craft breweries of the city and only a few of those craft breweries survived prohibition. One such brewery to survive was Mutual Brewery, which remained in operation until 1924, well into the Prohibition era.  This lovely historical building still has […]

American Black Ale: Dark is Delicious

American Black Ale: Dark is Delicious

If you’re a fan of super dark craft beer, then you’re going to love American Black Ales. These brews feature a very dark color, super bitter taste, and a mid-range ABV that will allow you to enjoy a few before you need to say “no more” for proprietary reasons (like the fact that dancing on the pool table isn’t always funny and WILL end up on YouTube). Also, if you really enjoy pairing your craft brews with some great meals, this is a style you can enjoy pairing with a variety of delicious dinners and desserts! Why go dark? For […]

American Sour Ale : Multiple Personalities in a bottle

American Sour Ale : Multiple Personalities in a bottle

When you order an American Sour Ale, you cannot assume what it will be like unless you ask your taproom specialist ahead of time. This is due to the absolutely varying nature of this brewing style. With a color that ranges from pale to black, bitterness that spans the same line and an ABV that can only be determined by asking the taproom staff (again), you are sure to find an adventure in each new American Sour you choose to try. Why is the American Sour so unpredictable? Simply put, there is no set determination at to what these brews […]

How Italy has influenced our wine industry

How Italy has influenced our wine industry

While watching the Changing of the Guard in Italy for Republic Day yesterday, I was put into a mind to think about how Italy has affected the wine industry here in the United States in such very profound ways.  Many of our great winemakers to whom our own wines are attributed to be influenced by were winemakers that immigrated to the United States over a century ago.  Knowing this has led me to look into that lovely country and more of their traditions that really make the people who they are. Dedication to traditions is what makes a great wine […]

Fresh from the Farm

Fresh from the Farm

Both old and new craft breweries are starting to get more involved in their communities these days. Not that these folks weren’t already bastions of community events and support, but they’ve really started to ramp up the way they support the communities that they love. Many breweries are starting to install solar panels, creating green rooftops, finding numerous ways to recycle their water, and now the turn towards locally sourced ingredients is becoming a strong trend as well! This is great for the local communities, as they are able to save in a variety of ways due to this trend. […]
