The Art of Boston’s Craft Beer Labels - Part One

We care about craft beer label art a lot at American Craft Beer.com. We care about it so much that we’ve even made it part of how we rate craft beers here. Labels are the unsung heroes of the drinking world; they lure in customers who don’t necessarily know what a saison or a stout is, beckoning with their bright colors, sharp designs and bold graphics. We’ve got some great local talent slapping noteworthy art on bottles, which begs the question: who’s behind these masterpieces.


Low Moves in High Places – Beer Wholesalers Help Kill Florida Growler Bill

We’ve been called cynical from time to time here at AmericanCraftBeer.com, but when we see garbage like this go down, we can’t help but be. What took place this week in Tallahassee’s State House was clearly a case of big business colluding with entrenched politicians and a blatant attempt to limit the growing economic power of Florida’s small craft brewers.

And yes, we’re pissed…but we’re just getting started!

Hardly Slummin’ with Slumbrew’s Caitlin Jewell

Since opening two years ago, Somerville Brewing Company—its beers are marketed under the brand name “Slumbrew”—has become one of the most popular craft breweries in Massachusetts. So when I got the chance to interview Caitlin Jewell, Somerville's co-founder and marketing manager, I didn’t hesitate. It’s a family-owned small business—her husband, Jeff Leiter, is also a co-founder and brewer, and her brother, Chris Jewell, is their road warrior sales manager and distributor liaison. Among other things, I learned they are faring far better than their brand name connotes.

It’s Not a Boondoggle – My Unsolicited Thoughts on This Year’s Craft Brewers Conference

This past week was a little bit different for me – I left the great state of Texas to attend the week-long Craft Brewers Conference in Washington, D.C. First of all, let me start out by saying this is a fantastic and educational conference – not just an excuse to pull together the nation’s best brewers into one convention hall. Of course, there are benefits to being around those who live and breathe craft beer, and to be in an area where it was celebrated and discussed ad nauseam was actually quite the treat for a fan like me.

Washington State’s “50 cent per gallon tax” and what it means to you

The state of Washington has long been a bastion of craft breweries and craft drinkers. Brewers, fans, and the government alike support each other as they strive to overtake the market share of the large, watered-down cans. But now there is a disturbance in the force. A disturbance proposed by Washington Governor Jay Inslee: the 50 cent per gallon tax.
