It's that time again. “Brews in the News” is a bi-weekly Bites ‘N’ Flights feature highlighting recent craft beer news. This is where you’ll find local, national, and global stories covering my favorite topic: beer!
Without further ado, the craft beer news you might have missed this week:
OK, this isn't exactly craft beer news, but I know fans of Two Roads will appreciate this story. The old, defunct gas station across the street from the brewery is now a "garage-fired" pizza place created by celebrity chef Bruno DiFabio! Now you have a really close option for pizza to bring into Two Roads while you enjoy your beer.
Stone Brewing in San Diego recently released its fittingly named Full Circle Pale Ale, brewed with recycled wastewater. The release was part of a city initiative to provide one-third of San Diego's water locally by 2035 – obviously, that's going to take some creativity to accomplish. The batch was gone within 20 minutes so it can't have tasted bad.
A years-long effort between the Maine Brewers Guild and Eimskip, an Icelandic shipping company, has resulted in Maine beer being shipped off to Reykjavik and Europe – and in the summer, New Englanders can get their taste of Icelandic beers in Maine.
I'm embarrassed to admit that I sometimes put half-finished cans and bottles of beer back into the fridge and yes, I do drink them the next day and no, they don't taste very good. A resealable craft beer can would certainly solve this issue for me (and I'm sure there are others who share in this dumb situation).
A delightful collection of GIFs showing people accomplishing amazing feats with a beer in hand.
