This post seems more relevant than ever about how and why we should support the local craft brew places.
This one targets the places around Portland, OR specifically, but I hope you can find similar lists for whatever your region is.
But whatever you do; do it safely. It really is about everyone, because despite what you may have heard, this pandemic is not a joke.
This is a very clever bit of design. As a person who digs on games and beer, having something that blends these together is something I can really appreciate.
Reading this editorial about the cost of aluminum for brewing, and how that affects prices was a neat window into how things are interconnected-and things inevitably become local.
I watched this video on making tacos placeros, and it certainly made me hungry.
It also got me to thinking about what happens when other cultures and people are able to contribute to the community at large. About what is lost when we ignore them. At least half of that video is in Spanish, and without subtitles I wouldn’t know what was going on. But with subtitles, I got a fantastic window into something that I would not have seen-with some ideas for cooking myself.
Which is one reason it’s so great to see different voices come up in the beer scene, including the very cool SheBrew festival. (Which I volunteer at, just for disclosure’s sake.)
A friend sent me this story about the use of aluminum cups for the first time at the Super Bowl.
It looks like this has been something they’ve been road testing at college games in late 2019, and clearly it was liked well enough to give a go at one of the biggest sporting events in the country. Which is great news to me: anything that helps reduce waste is a definite win.
The headline for this story isn’t really helpful-because “turning beer into food” doesn’t really describe what’s going on.
What’s going on is someone is taking their passion for social justice and using their business to help do something about the hungry in this country. It’s nice to see good things coming from the industry.
