Pizza is clearly one of America’s most beloved foods – And beer has long been its perfect companion. Like Adam and Eve, or maybe Romeo and Juliet, they’ve always seemed like a match. And maybe it’s because of this classic association that companies invite us to try their products from time to time. And that brings us to the Screamin’ Sicilian Pizza & Craft Beer Cage Match that we’re sponsoring today.

The Great Maui Craft Beer Hunt

Over the last few days, I have struggled for a way to start an article about my trip to Maui. Do I talk about the intense tan color of the sand and the vivid blues and greens of the Pacific? Do I paint a picture of the landscapes: the beautifully fiery sunsets, the marbled rolling oceans, or the scenic drives through sugar cane and pineapple fields?

The State of American Craft Beer – Arizona

The third state we’re putting under the microscope is The Grand Canyon State, Arizona. This wild and arid state has more folks residing there than we expected, ranking 15th in total population (over 6.7 million), is supported by the Arizona Craft Brewers Guild and at last count houses roughly 70 breweries and brewpubs in total.  Much of Arizona is desert and forest wilderness, so the bulk of their breweries are found in metropolitan Phoenix, Tucson and Flagstaff. As of 2013, the state ranked 19th in total breweries and 31st in breweries per capita, according to the Brewers Assocation.


Newbies - New Releases That You Want to Look Out For

We’ll have more on that for you plus some new releases from Cigar City and Odell that sound extremely awesome.

Banded Horn Brewing - A Name And An Attitude

I first met Ian McConnell, the owner and brewmaster of Banded Horn Brewing Company, at the Mount Snow Brewfest over Labor Day weekend last year. His beers were great and he seemed like a fascinating guy. I corralled him later that day to learn more about Banded Horn and everything he’s doing.
