Channel 11’s Steven Fisher reported that police and the owner were called to the Double Door Bar at 4 a.m. when a security alarm went off. Officers found the cash register on the ground, but no money was missing. The burglar took two six-packs of Coors Light beer. The owner told Channel 11 News that the surveillance cameras at the bar were not working.

    How did I manage to miss National Beer Day? Alas it was yesterday, so it’s too late to have a beer for breakfast.Yes, that’s exactly what it looks like: A baby. For awhile it looked like they would have to replace their 12 year old label because the Michigan Liquor Control Commission  suddenly realized that it violated one of their zillion administrative rules that states "an advertisement or label affixed to a container, covering, carton, or case of containers of alcoholic liquor shall not depict or make reference in any manner to minors."The Commission apparently relented after Founders apologized for...

    The Columbia Gorge is now home to an estimated 45 wineries, 14 breweries, 13 cideries and two distilleries — not counting dozens, probably hundreds, of home brewers. #All those brewers represent different applications of “fermentation science,” the topic of a six-part instructional series starting next month through Columbia Gorge Community College. #Local industry leaders in such disparate fields as beer, cider, wine, spirits, baking and fermented foods will describe the commonalities uniting their work, facilitated by Dr. Kevin McCabe, lab supervisor at Full Sail Brewing Co. and former microbiology professor at the college. Students will learn the principles of fermentation...

    A crew of five astronomers from Belgium have discovered an exceptional planetary system and surprisingly it has got the name of their favorite beer. The planetary system has been christened TRAPPIST-1 by the astronomers after The Transiting Planets and Planetesimals Small Telescope or TRAPPIST. It is an arrangement of seven planets just 40 light-years away, surrounding a dwarf star. The sizes of the planets are almost similar to that of the Earth. Three of the seven planets are in the liveable area of the star to ensure that they can reinforce liquid water in the external zone and support life....

    Liu, together with doctoral candidate Jiajing Wang and a group of other experts, discovered the 5,000-year-old beer recipe by studying the residue on the inner walls of pottery vessels found in an excavated site in northeast China. The research, which was published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, provided the earliest evidence of beer production in China so far. The ancient Chinese made beer mainly with cereal grains, including millet and barley, as well as with Job's tears, a type of grass in Asia, according to the research. Traces of yam and lily root parts also appeared in...

    Budweiser has chosen the charged political issue of immigration as the subject of its Super Bowl LI commercial. The 60-second spot explains the origin story of the beer company’s immigrant co-founder, Adolphus Busch. The ad, titled “Born the Hard Way,” begins with a young, German-born Busch being told, “You’re not wanted here! Go back home!” The big budget production eventually sees Busch land on the shores of St. Louis where he built his mega-brewery.

    A beer designed specifically for shower use aims to keep its cool in hot conditions by downsizing the bottle.It never occurred to me to drink beer in the shower until the moment I heard about Shower Beer, a brew designed to keep you company while you wash your hair and shave your armpits. Apparently, I've been missing out. Shower Beer from PangPang Brewery in Sweden is a strong pale ale bottled in a dainty 6-ounce (177-milliliter) bottle. It comes in a several-sips serving size so it has a better chance of staying chilled through the quaffing process, even if you're...

    A former ombudsman at one of Canada’s big banks has been tapped to investigate complaints of a far more frothy nature: beer. The Beer Store has appointed Charles Dougall as Ontario’s first beer ombudsman. The foreign-owned consortium, which operates more than 470 retail outlets throughout the province, says Dougall will be responsible for mediating operational disputes between the Beer Store, its customers and brewers. He has been appointed to a three-year term, beginning Jan. 2, and will report annually to the Beer Store’s independent directors.

    Lagers may be ubiquitous but India Pale Ales are beers with a backstory BEER is for drinking. But beer is also an occasion for conversation—and, if good enough, a subject for it, too. That is where India Pale Ales, or IPAs, come into their own. Few beers incite and enrich conversation as much. Their distinctive character—the “firm bitterness [that] lingers long and clean” in one, the “complex aromatic notes of citrus, berry, tropical fruit and pine” in another—spur discussions that spill over from tap rooms to websites with ease. The plethora of craft brewers that has sprung up over the...

    The German parent company behind Jägermeister has filed a formal notice of opposition to the Milwaukee Bucks’ primary logo, citing, among other things, the likelihood of confusion between the two brands and the “false suggestion of a connection with persons, living or dead, institutions, beliefs, or national symbols, or brings them into contempt, or disrepute.”

    A Milwaukee brewing company asked customers to help name its next craft brew — and then it all went horribly wrong. MobCraft Beer, which regularly asks customers to name their new concoctions, crowd-sourced for suggestions for an upcoming brew that includes grapes and dates. “Date Grape” made the top eight before the company realized that having fun with the name of a type of sexual assault wasn’t a good idea.
