    The gunman who killed five co-workers at the Molson Coors Brewery in Milwaukee last week came to work one day in 2015 to find out that a noose had been placed on his locker, the company disclosed Tuesday. Police have not said what might have sparked the rampage by 51-year-old electrician Anthony Ferrill on Feb. 26, who died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

    Santa Cruz and its surrounding areas are known for many things — the Boardwalk, a petite wine country, banana slugs, horror movies and random Keanu sightings — but this week, for the second year in a row, it's the craft beer that's pushing the area's fame. Capitola's Sante Adairius Rustic Ales, a tiny craft brewery specializing in mixed-fermentation saisons, has again been voted into the top-10 ranking for the best breweries in the world. Better yet, this year the brewery, founded by Adair Paterno and Tim Clifford, jumped up one spot from No. 10 to No. 9. Sante Adairius —...

    U.S. authorities have charged a Maryland businessman with bribing a Russian official in an effort to win contracts to ship uranium to the United States. U.S. prosecutors unsealed money laundering, foreign bribery and wire fraud charges against Mark Lambert, 54, in federal court in Greenbelt, Maryland, on Friday. Lambert denies the allegations and plans to fight them in court, his attorney William Sullivan said during a pre-trial hearing. Prosecutors allege Lambert, former co-president of a Maryland-based shipping company Transport Logistics International (TLI), bribed a Russian energy official through a series of shell companies in Cyprus, Latvia and Switzerland in exchange...

    WASHINGTON (Nexstar) — In recent years we’ve seen the craft beer industry grow from a handful of breweries in major cities to thousands of smaller, artisanal breweries spread across all 50 states. Brewers said the Craft Beverage Modernization and Tax Reform Act (passed in 2017) has helped with that growth. But those tax breaks expire this year, and advocates want Congress to act fast. **SNIP** Cheston is one of nearly 7,000 craft brewers in the United States, who along with beer lovers, raised a glass after Congress passed the Craft Beverage Modernization and Tax Reform Act 2 years ago.

    A more sustainable pint of craft beer possibly coming to a pub near you +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Hoppy beer is all the rage among craft brewers and beer lovers, and now UC Berkeley biologists have come up with a way to create these unique flavors and aromas without using hops. The researchers created strains of brewer's yeast that not only ferment the beer but also provide two of the prominent flavor notes provided by hops. In double-blind taste tests, employees of Lagunitas Brewing Company in Petaluma, California, characterized beer made from the engineered strains as more hoppy than a control beer...

    Woman Proves Her Body Brews Alcohol To Beat DUI Charges Drink driving charges against a woman in New York have been dismissed after it was revealed she suffers from auto-brewery syndrome - a rare digestive condition that turns food into alcohol. The 35-year-old teacher was pulled over in New York last October after police received reports her Toyota Carolla was "weaving all over" the road. When pulled over and tested, she recorded a blood-alcohol level of more than four times the legal limit at 0.33%. Police alleged that she failed several field sobriety tests, including standing on one foot and...

    Liquor stores and restaurants across Craig are pulling Colorado craft beers off their shelves due to the beer companies’ financial support to WildEarth Guardians, the environmental group that put Colowyo Coal Mine at risk of being shut down. Stockmen’s Liquor pulled 12 brands of beer — including New Belgium Brewery — because they are listed as WildEarth Guardians supporters. “We pulled those beers because their support of WildEarth Guardians... who said their ultimate goal is to shut down coal mines,” said Lori Gillam, owner of Stockmen's. “Craig is a coal mine town.” WildEarth Guardians has a list of business supporters...

    It doesn't get more Milwaukee than this: Hundreds of beer lovers lined up at Lakefront Brewery on N. Commerce Street - 350 of them by 7:30 a.m. - to buy the local craft brewer's special "Black Friday" ale. "I was here at midnight - midnight!" said first-in-line Derek Fry, 28, of Franklin. And he was happy to be there. The annual sale of the India-style pale ale - a potent 10% alcohol brew offered in 22-ounce bottles at $10 each - is as more festival than doorbuster. "This is the quintessential beer community," Fry said as he waited for his...
  • Government “Shutdown” Shuts Down Beer

    I’ve taken a lot of flak from establishment media types and angry federal employees for my contention that the hullabaloo over the so-called government “shutdown” is excessive. The fact is most government activities have not stopped and most government employees continue to work. However, one activity that has stopped – and, man, this is personal – is the approval of new beer labels and recipes. From USA Today (tip of the hat to my dad): All new beers that get bottled or canned to be sold across state lines must be approved by the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade...

    FAIRFIELD — Workers at the Anheuser-Busch brewery in Fairfield face a hard choice, neither of which is likely to go down as smoothly as fresh, cold beer: retire early or get laid off. Jim Brickey, vice president for people at the company's St. Louis, Mo., headquarters, confirmed that managers are talking with Teamster union leaders about "voluntary enhanced severance" packages. "Our employees have expressed interest in this, and we are exploring this option with the union," Brickey said in an e-mail, noting that similar talks are taking place at the company's 11 other breweries across the United States.

    Shops in Belgium running out of Stella, Leffe and Jupiler as Anheuser-Busch InBev workers blockade breweries in protest over job cuts. Belgian beer-drinkers hoping to forget the recession and freezing weather weather over a few pints of their favourite brew are in for a shock. Shops are set to run out of the best-selling Stella Artois, Leffe and Jupiler brands in the coming days, as workers blockade three breweries in Belgium owned by Anheuser-Busch InBev. AB InBev, the world's biggest brewer, last week announced plans to make about 10pc of its staff in Western Europe redundant after years of falling...

    The D.G. Yuengling & Sons seal is printed on numerous items, from beer cans, bottles, shirts, hats and, believe it or not, patches worn by a certain Army National Guard unit on overseas missions. “It reminds of home, actually,” said Chief Warrant Officer Joseph T. Witmer of Etters, York County, who wears a patch that resembles the label on Yuengling Traditional Lager beer. Before mobilizing Thursday to prepare for a tour in Iraq, nine Army National Guard soldiers from the 2nd Battalion 104th Aviation, Fort Indiantown Gap, Annville, saluted Yuengling President Richard “Dick” Yuengling Jr. Tuesday morning at the brewery...

    SAO PAULO, May 7 - A beer taster for a Brazilian brewery won almost $50,000 in a court battle against the company, alleging he became an alcoholic while working there. The employee for Ambev, a leading Brazilian brewery, said the company did not provide health care in the event a beer taster developed alcoholism, O Globo reported Monday. A previous court had ruled in favor of Ambev, saying the company was not responsible for the unidentified man's affliction. The employee said he drank on average about 20 small beers ever day at work.

    LONDON (AFP) - Watch out Starbucks. British beermakers are wooing the caffeine-crazed with a new beer made from fair-trade coffee beans, to be launched on Friday. Coffee beans from the central African country of Rwanda are mixed with barley grown in Britain, creating a beer with the same amount of caffeine in one bottle as in a cup of coffee. Drinkers can get an added buzz from the political correctness of their coffee, labelled fair trade -- meaning it has been grown in conditions which ensure the fair treatment of and living wages for workers in developing countries.
