    It doesn't get more Milwaukee than this: Hundreds of beer lovers lined up at Lakefront Brewery on N. Commerce Street - 350 of them by 7:30 a.m. - to buy the local craft brewer's special "Black Friday" ale. "I was here at midnight - midnight!" said first-in-line Derek Fry, 28, of Franklin. And he was happy to be there. The annual sale of the India-style pale ale - a potent 10% alcohol brew offered in 22-ounce bottles at $10 each - is as more festival than doorbuster. "This is the quintessential beer community," Fry said as he waited for his...
  • Government “Shutdown” Shuts Down Beer

    I’ve taken a lot of flak from establishment media types and angry federal employees for my contention that the hullabaloo over the so-called government “shutdown” is excessive. The fact is most government activities have not stopped and most government employees continue to work. However, one activity that has stopped – and, man, this is personal – is the approval of new beer labels and recipes. From USA Today (tip of the hat to my dad): All new beers that get bottled or canned to be sold across state lines must be approved by the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade...

    FAIRFIELD — Workers at the Anheuser-Busch brewery in Fairfield face a hard choice, neither of which is likely to go down as smoothly as fresh, cold beer: retire early or get laid off. Jim Brickey, vice president for people at the company's St. Louis, Mo., headquarters, confirmed that managers are talking with Teamster union leaders about "voluntary enhanced severance" packages. "Our employees have expressed interest in this, and we are exploring this option with the union," Brickey said in an e-mail, noting that similar talks are taking place at the company's 11 other breweries across the United States. If too...

    Shops in Belgium running out of Stella, Leffe and Jupiler as Anheuser-Busch InBev workers blockade breweries in protest over job cuts. Belgian beer-drinkers hoping to forget the recession and freezing weather weather over a few pints of their favourite brew are in for a shock. Shops are set to run out of the best-selling Stella Artois, Leffe and Jupiler brands in the coming days, as workers blockade three breweries in Belgium owned by Anheuser-Busch InBev. AB InBev, the world's biggest brewer, last week announced plans to make about 10pc of its staff in Western Europe redundant after years of falling...

    The D.G. Yuengling & Sons seal is printed on numerous items, from beer cans, bottles, shirts, hats and, believe it or not, patches worn by a certain Army National Guard unit on overseas missions. “It reminds of home, actually,” said Chief Warrant Officer Joseph T. Witmer of Etters, York County, who wears a patch that resembles the label on Yuengling Traditional Lager beer. Before mobilizing Thursday to prepare for a tour in Iraq, nine Army National Guard soldiers from the 2nd Battalion 104th Aviation, Fort Indiantown Gap, Annville, saluted Yuengling President Richard “Dick” Yuengling Jr. Tuesday morning at the brewery...

    SAO PAULO, May 7 - A beer taster for a Brazilian brewery won almost $50,000 in a court battle against the company, alleging he became an alcoholic while working there. The employee for Ambev, a leading Brazilian brewery, said the company did not provide health care in the event a beer taster developed alcoholism, O Globo reported Monday. A previous court had ruled in favor of Ambev, saying the company was not responsible for the unidentified man's affliction. The employee said he drank on average about 20 small beers ever day at work.

    LONDON (AFP) - Watch out Starbucks. British beermakers are wooing the caffeine-crazed with a new beer made from fair-trade coffee beans, to be launched on Friday. Coffee beans from the central African country of Rwanda are mixed with barley grown in Britain, creating a beer with the same amount of caffeine in one bottle as in a cup of coffee. Drinkers can get an added buzz from the political correctness of their coffee, labelled fair trade -- meaning it has been grown in conditions which ensure the fair treatment of and living wages for workers in developing countries.

    MIAMI (Reuters) - U.S. researchers have unearthed what they say may be the oldest known brewery in the Andes, a pre-Incan plant at least 1,000 years old that could produce drinks for hundreds of people at one sitting. The University of Florida said on Thursday that its archeologists and researchers from the Field Museum in Chicago found the brewery at Cerro Baul, a mountaintop religious center of the Wari empire that ruled what is now Peru hundreds of years before the Incas. At least 20 ceramic, 10- to 15-gallon (38- to 57-litre) vats were found at the site some 8,000...
