The Golden Age Of American Craft Beer?

The term Golden Age originally came from Greek mythology. It now has basically come to mean “the best time ever” in the pop lexicon and is frequently used nowadays. Film has had several “Golden Ages,” and music has had too many to count. 

And that brings us to American craft beer… which is experiencing some very heady times.

The State of American Craft Beer – Alabama

With our headquarters in Washington DC and the bulk of our correspondents found near America’s top producing craft beer regions on the coasts, it only makes sense for us to start a new series giving all the states their due, featuring breweries large and small, plus the histories behind them.

For the sake of clarity and with an eye toward avoiding any bias, we’re doing this thing alphabetically. So the first state to take the plunge is sweet home Alabama which stands 23rd in total population (around 4.8 million) and sustains a state brewers guild of 27 brewers.

Plus we’ve also got new releases from Flying Dog and Half Acre Beer that sound pretty awesome as well.
