Charges of tampering with evidence and a weapons violation have also been filed against 20-year-old Salim Salim,...

    ELSEVIER—Amsterdam, September 12, 2018—A new study* published in the Journal of Archaeological Science: Reports suggests beer brewing practices existed in the Eastern Mediterranean over five millennia before the earliest known evidence, discovered in northern China. In an archaeological collaboration project between Stanford University in the United States, and University of Haifa, Israel, archeologists analyzed three stone mortars from a 13,000-year old Natufian burial cave site in Israel. Their analysis confirmed that these mortars were used for brewing of wheat/barley, as well as for food storage.

    BOSTON (WCVB/CNN) - A neighbor of the Samuel Adams brewery in Boston has hung up a sign aimed at shaming the brewery's founder for his remarks at a dinner with President Donald Trump. The sign says “Shame!” and “Sam Adams (heart) Trump.” It’s a response to Jim Koch, the founder of Sam Adams producer Boston Beer Company, endorsing Trump’s tax cuts. The sign is visible from the brewery parking lot. The person who hung it said he wants an apology from Sam Adams' CEO himself. "It's only been up a couple of days,” said Jeremy Phillips, who created the sign....

    Archaeologists have found traces of beer in Iraq that are super old, dating back 2,500 years to ancient Mesopotamia and the Babylonian Empire. While texts from those forgotten days speak of fermented drinks, this is the "oldest direct evidence" of beer discovered, Smithsonian reports. And now the archaeologists who discovered the traces are trying to replicate the recipe for us to enjoy in the modern era. Eons pass and civilizations fall, but beer is always good. Elsa Perruchini, the lead author on the study announcing the discovery, used a process called gas chromatography, which has never before been used to...

    FULL TITLE: Sam Adams Founder Chugs Beer, Tells Trump What ‘Pissed’ Him Off — Room Roars With Laughter “When I started Sam Adams, American beer was a joke, and it pissed me off. And now, American brewers make the best beer in the world. And the tax reform was a very big deal for all of us, because 85 percent of the beer made in the United States is owned by foreign companies.” Koch then complimented Trump’s tax cuts for making American brewing competitive again, “I’m the largest American-owned brewery at 2-percent market share. We were paying 38-percent taxes and...

    Hunting for decent beer stock photography is, for me, one of the most frustrating parts of writing about beer. Most of the available beer photos on stock sites look like they came from a mid-’80s encyclopedia entry on Bavaria: pretzels, leiderhosen, frosty mugs, blonde women with their chests out. I’ll finally find a nicely lit, well-composed image, only to see that the beer glass is dirty. Or the bartender is pouring the beer improperly. Or I can’t find a dark beer poured into anything except a pint glass. And if I want women or racial minorities in the shot? That’s...

    A brewing company offered an apology after wanting to name its beer “White Guilt.” Lakeville Brew Crew, a yet to be opened Indiana-based brewery, apologized after planning on naming its beers controversial names such as “White Guilt,” “Flint Michigan Tap Water” and “Black Beer Matters,” The Associated Press reported Thursday. The brewery’s owners Jon Duncan and Rodney Chlebek said that after receiving an overwhelmingly negative reaction to the names, they “wiped clean” the list, according to the South Bend Tribune. […] The brewery’s owners claimed that they originally chose such polarizing names to bring attention to the Flint water crisis...
  • The two most important inventions in all of history

    My email | 7 July 2018
    The two most important inventions in all of history were the invention of beer and the invention of the wheel. Beer required grain and that was the beginning of agriculture. Neither the glass bottle nor aluminum can were invented yet, so while our early humans were sitting around waiting for them to be invented, they just stayed close to the brewery. That's how villages were formed. The wheel was invented to get man to the beer and vice versa. These two were the foundation of modern civilization and together were the catalyst for the splitting of humanity into two distinct...

    Beer-guzzling soccer fans risk drinking bars and restaurants in the Russian capital dry, with some saying they are running low and having to wait longer than usual for fresh supplies. Moscow has been transformed by the World Cup, with singing, chanting and beer swilling fans overwhelming some of the packed bars and restaurants around the Kremlin and Red Square. "We just didn't think they would only want beer," said one waiter at a upscale eatery in central Moscow who asked not to be identified for fear of scaring off future customers. The waiter said his restaurant ran out of draft...

Don’t look for the machine in the U.S. The foamy tweets will only be able at a few Swedish bars during the World Cup.

    What a fine-tuned machine our state is when it comes to clamping down on its own residents, as witnessed Thursday when Boston’s Licensing Board took a shot across the bow of a local small business owner. Naveen Kapoor, owner of the Quality Market in Brighton, was caught on camera moving beer from that store down the street to his other shop, Quality Liquors in Allston. He told the Licensing Board that he was transferring the suds because Quality Liquors had run out of several beer brands. That is a big no-no. According to the Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission, “All licensed...

    U.S. officials have ordered a San Francisco brewery to stop producing beer containing cannabidiol, the hemp-derived extract known as CBD. The U.S. Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau is allowing Black Hammer Brewing to sell the rest of the CBD beer it already brewed, including one called Toke Back Mountain... The San Francisco Chronicle reported Wednesday that the order to stop brewing cannabis beer was not issued because the federal government says marijuana is illegal, but because the trade bureau requires special approval for non-standard beer ingredients. The brewery plans to apply for the approval.

    No amount of alcohol, sausage or bacon is safe according to a new global blueprint on how to beat cancer. Even small amounts of processed meats and booze increase the risk of a host of cancers outlined in World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) guidelines updated every decade. The respected global authority has unveiled a 10-point plan to cut your risk of getting cancer by up to 40%. Brits have been told to banish favourites such as ham, burgers and hot dogs from their diets by experts who say they are a direct cause of bowel cancer. Processed meats also cause...

    A few months ago BrewDog sent a case of Make Earth Great Again beer to the White House to object to President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord and now it seems they’re not the only ones making protest beers. This month Stone Brewing Co. has announced they’ll soon be releasing I’m Peach Double IPA in resistance to Trump, according to Beer Street Journal. The beer’s play on words is a pretty clear reference to a resistance movement that aims to have Trump impeached in 2018. While politically unfeasible at the moment, if the Democrats take...
