Washington-Made Sounders Beer Irks Some Fans, Causes Social Media Stir

Posted Posted in Beer

It seemed like a harmless idea.
Nathan and Sara Reilly are a couple of Sounders fans who own Three Magnets Brewing Co. in Olympia. Since opening in 2014, they’ve made a point of showing Sounders matches in the taproom, even when they’re up against more popular sporting events.

Big Changes Underway for Alpha Brewing Co.

Posted Posted in Beer

St. Louis, /December 2017 (STL.News) – Big changes are in the works for a downtown St. Louis-based craft brewer. Alpha Brewing Company is closing its downtown brewery at the end of this month (December 2017) ahead of their move to Tower Grove South. The new Alpha Brewing Company tap room and beer garden will open at 4310 Fyler Avenue in mid-February. The move represents more than a change of scenery. It also means the brewery will be able to grow and expand in more ways than one.

Is Colorado’s Craft Beer Scene Oversaturated? • thefullpint.com

Posted Posted in Beer

Is Colorado’s craft beer scene oversaturated? It’s a question that’s been on the tip of a lot of tongues in the Centennial State recently. With 334 craft breweries currently operating within Colorado, and nearly 200 more in the planning or construction phase, it’s easy to see why the state that ranks third in the U.for number of breweries per capita has been under the microscope of the craft beer industry lately.

The consumer decision journey in the increasingly complex search retail marketplace

Posted Posted in Beer

In the retail space today, it’s no longer business as usual. Retail is in a constant state of flux as more and more brands announce store closings; we’ve experienced a staggering 97 percent increase in store closures year over year, according to the National Real Estate Investor. But it’s not all doom and gloom. E-commerce sales are growing — in fact, according to Business Insider, “Though the US retail average growth rate in the first half of 2016 was just 2 percent for total retail, it was 16 percent for e-commerce.” Digital transformation is taking over the retail space as retailers scramble to adapt, survive and thrive.

Seattle Sounders Fans Are Hopping Mad At Beer

Posted Posted in Beer

The weekend went by, we brewed the beer, and the following week the MLS asked us to change the branding. We immediately called the label company to luckily find out that they had not printed the labels yet for the cans. At this point we basically had to get the replacement labels ordered ASAP in order to get them shipped in time, as we had promised a lot of people that another round of Deuce Juice would drop on the 29th, and we wanted to still meet that obligation even if with a different name.

Breweries around San Fran / San Jose Area

Posted Posted in Beer

In the immediate area, Fieldwork and Cellarmaker would be quality choices. But, if you can make the drive, SARA is the best brewery I’ve been too. Not just in terms of beer but the atmosphere too. It’s a great place and they’d likely have a couple bottles for you to take home. For my taste, saisons are what they do best, but their stouts and IPAs are also excellent.
