- Who wouldn't want a new product you can take home from a brewery that is promised to keep your beer fresh for at least double the time of a regular growler? In this article, The Alcohol Professor visits the crowler. They are pretty much big cans that a brewery can fill up and seal in their taproom with ease. Oskar Blues is quoted as saying the beer stays good and carbonated for at least a month (as long as it remains unopened, of course). I would love to try this out. Has anyone had any experience with the crowler?
- Another product that is being pushed on consumers these days is specialized glassware, specifically in this case the Spiegelau stout glass. I have yet to try it out, but it looks like Keith from Brew/Drink/Run has tested the glass out to some success. How about you? What do you think of the stout glass?
- Good old BillyBrew does a vertical with Rogue Old Crustacean. He acquired vintages from 1999, 2003 and 2007 through the Rogue store. Definitely a good read. I have some beers in my cellar hitting 2 years I am looking forward to tasting soon!
- With over 3,000 breweries in America, if you want your brewery to survive you must invest in quality and consistency. Here is a post from Fuggled about how improvements in the consistency of Starr Hill Jomo caused him to include it as a staple in his beer glass.
- Last but not least, Glen from the Aussie blog Beer is Your Friend constantly puts out great material. In this post, he starts up a Q&A series with none other than....Glen himself! Also, check out his comment below!
