American Brewer: The Brewer as Rock Star

Yes, I too am stunned that the current issue of American Brewer magazine is not dedicated to Alan McLeod (yes, you should click that link and cruise through a rather extensive discourse on the topic of “brewer as rock star”).

American Brewer: The Brewer as Rock Star

Anyway, that’s Tom Schlafly on the cover, co-founder of one of my hometown breweries. I’m about to open a Schlafly beer, wishing they bottled the Hop Trial: Rakau (a lovely 4.1% beer), and read about some rock stars.

Assorted beer links (including Xmas Photo Contest Rules)

Russian River Damnation at the Grand Canyon

– Alan McLeod has posted the rules for Xmas Photo Contest 2012 at A Good Beer Blog, always one of the highlights of the holiday season. He would like more photos of beer and snow, more of beer and babies. The contest begins Friday and runs through Dec. 7. (The photo at the top was taken several years ago at the Grand Canyon, and I think I’ve posted it here before, but I wanted something with beer and snow . . .)

He’s proud to call himself a Cicerone. A what? When Ray Daniels got that MBA from Harvard he must have sensed he was destined to end up in the Wall Street Journal.

New brewing qualification launched for independent brewers (UK story).

Great Divide adds two new seasonals, dumps Wild Raspberry Ale. There was once a time, hard to believe, that the Great Divide beer you spotted most often outside of Colorado was Wild Raspberry Ale.

Session #69 roundup posted

The SessionJorge does not mess around. He’s already posted the roundup for The Session #69: A Perfect Beer World.

Alas, my post didn’t make the cut. This happens every few months, although in this case it appears it is because I pissed off the comment gods. I see my comment (with a link) is still being held for approval. I don’t really mind, because it also has a typo. Quite obviously, news that Sierra Nevada Celebration had hit town rendered my mind, and fingers, pretty much useless.

Anyway, and this could change, but there’s also no link to Alan McLeod’s fine post (So What’s Not Perfect So Far?). Much better thought out than mine and worth your time.
