    Can It You Ninny

    There seems to be a move afoot inside the craft beer world to start to showcase craft offerings in cans. Canningbeercan beers is not new, but up until the last few years it was really only the domain of the macro outfits. Now, with “Can in a van” and the move among some larger craft brewers to install canning lines, are we seeing a shift to craft brewer needing a can offering to stay competitive? What do you think of the explosion of can offerings? Choose the option that best reflects you feeling towards can offerings. (please let us know if we should add any more options)

    Brew Polls Showcase

    We never really get tired of asking questions. It the easiest way to learn. What we try to do with our polls is put forth a snarky way of getting responses to some of the current issues in the massive brewniverse. The polls are unscientific (we were liberal arts majors for gosh sakes). They will range in answers from very astute to 100% sarcasm. They may resemble current events (All characters appearing in these works are fictitious. Any resemblance to real persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental.) and most polls will have the comments left open for you to voice your own opinion (just in case we weren’t opinionated…

    There has to be a Reason

    {xtypo_dropcap}A{/xtypo_dropcap}h, just another day in the Brewniverse. Beer weeks are in full swing (San Francisco this coming week, London the following week), festivals are in planning, one-offs are being brewed, sun shining, birds chirping…you get the idea.  It seems though, that all is not well in certain parts of the Brewniverse. The brewing Death Star, AB/Inbev, owner of multiple macro brands and now the owner of a growing list of “craft” brewers, fired a volley across the entire craft brewing galaxy when it aired a rather pointed commercial during the most recent Superbowl. The commercial, according to a company spokesman, was meant to paint their Budweiser brand as a brand…

    It’s in the Water

    {xtypo_dropcap}W{/xtypo_dropcap}ater, without it life as we know it would not have come to be. As important as water is to life, it is way more important to the brewing of beer (yes, that’s a joke). A human can go without water for several days, but let’s see someone brew beer without it.  After a lively Twitter discussion on water, we wanted to try and find out what the brewing community’s thoughs might be. This is a completely unscientific poll (besides, I drank my test subject) so have at it. I will leave the comment open if you would like to add anything (moderated, so it will not be immediate). How…

    It Keeps Me Warm

    As fall rounds the corner into winter for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere it is time to break out the larger coats, larger gloves and of course the larger beers.

    It’s a Waiting Game

    Foothills Sexual Chocolate, Three Floyds Dark Lord and Cigar City’s Hunahpu’s Day. These are just a few of what has grown to be a regular occasion within the world of craft beer. The explosion of craft beer coupled with the limitations of particular breweries, it is now common to see massive lines or creative schemes employed to handle the demand for these small batch collectible beers. We’d like to find out what the community is willing to accept in order to get these cherished brews.  NOTE: Mouse (fingermove) over each item to vote.

    Tis the Season for Multipacks

    {xtypo_dropcap}T{/xtypo_dropcap}is the season. The holiday season you ask. No, tis the season for the brewery multipack. From Saranac to Sam Adams, multipacks/variety packs will abound at your local beer store or grocery store.   We’d like to know what the beer drinking public thinks about them and how willing you might be to try one out.   {minipolls id=”miltipack” title=”Past Experience” use_percent=”1″} I’ve tried them and don’t like them||I’ve tried them and think they’re OK||I still have 11 bottles of beer in the pack (from a year ago)||I am on my way to get one soon||I am part of the way through this years pack already||I’m on my second one this fall…

    Hey Big Spender

    A good craft beer can be purchased just about anywhere now. Prices, though, can very from place to place and even bar/pub to bar/pub. We’re interested in how much money is being spent by individuals during a typical month of craft beer drinking. Include store purchases, bar/pub purchases and special event entrance fees.  {mijopolls 1}
