Vintage beer? Some say brews taste better with age

In the late 1970s, a young Southern California beer enthusiast named Bill Sysak began doing something quite novel at the time.

If you’re toasting to health, reach for beer, not wine

What’s the healthiest libation for ringing in the New Year? Beer, says Charlie Bamforth, a professor of brewing sciences at the University of California, Davis. Though it’s been blamed for many a paunch, it’s more nutritious than most other alcoholic drinks, Bamforth says. “There’s a reason people call it liquid bread,” he says. Beer, he […]

American beer sales have followed a downward trend in recent years. After reaching a peak of 219 million barrels in 2008, total U.S. shipments have declined to just 211.7 million barrels in 2013.

Budweiser Clydesdales Being Ditched For Craft Beer Hipsters

The iconic and beautiful Budweiser Clydesdales are being given the proverbial boot – or hoof – as it may be, and the horses won’t be seen for this year’s holiday advertising campaign.

There’s a black market for beer. And it’s bad for drinkers

Your next specialty beer could cost you a lot more.

Engineers Can Alter the Hoppiness of Your Beer in Seconds

As someone who has homebrewed plenty of beer in my life, I am a bit dubious of any claims that anyone can improve a beer’s flavor in just seconds.
