Every year, there are awards handed out to deserving brewers from around the country at Denver’s Great American Beer Festival. Then there are the local fests that showcase the flagship and seasonal beers that provide a more limited scope.

The FunKtion at the Fillmore with Lagunitas and Left Hand Brewing

We’re Not Apologizing for Our Behavior

This year’s Craft Brewers Conference was an informative and wonderful event – rich with some 85+ seminars covering everything from technical brewing to Federal tax code compliance – and a trade show with 450+ exhibitors to explore. But the week’s activities didn’t stop at the Colorado Convention Center. Every evening, there were special craft beer events and parties spilling out into Denver’s coolest bars and rock venues and they usually proved to be too much fun.

What the Hell Is a Hefeweizen?

American Craft Beer’s Guide to Beer Styles

Hey even though we act like it, we admit we don’t know everything. And one thing that’s cool to know more about is the kind of beer that you’re drinking. Every beer style has its own backstory, a hometown, and a reason why it came about. It’s all part of a beer’s DNA and we think that matters.

ACB Ventures to Vermont

I knew that Vermont was home to maple syrup, world-class ski slopes, Phish, and Von Trapp descendants. What I didn’t know was that this unassuming state with the second smallest population also happens to be home to more breweries per capita than any other state (in 2011), including the holy grail of beers.

However, many people don't realize that there is a vast diversity to Louisiana’s culture based on where you happen to be in the state. In the case of Cajun culture, no other brewery captures the essence of the food and heritage like Bayou Teche Brewing in Arnaudville, LA.
