    Here is a quick Quickies for you, as I’m headed out to the airport again! Man’s body brews its own beer due to the microbiome in his gut – I mean, it sounds like it was pretty awful for him, but IF you had the ability to turn it on and off, it would be convenient! I do watch Doctor…

    Bad Chart Thursday: Beer Doesn’t Make You Fat!

    Britain’s Beer Alliance sounds like my kind of superhero team, fighting the good fight against sobriety across the UK. At the mere whisper of “I’ll just have water, thanks,” our Alliance heroes don their goggles, suck in their guts, and stagger their way toward the cry for help. In reality, there’s no giant mug of beer crashing through pub walls…

    Beer, Queer? Thoughts On Beer and Gender

    Scottish self-proclaimed “punk rock” brewery Brewdog has released what it calls “the world’s first transgender beer.” Dubbed “No Label,” the beer is “brewed with hops that have changed sex from female to male flowers prior to harvest,” thus in the minds of Brewdog making it a Statement for Equality and, uh, somehow a symbol of the trans community.

    Craft Beverage People: Do Better.

    CN: Slurs; rape jokes; racist and sexist langage and images (mostly in links) It’s no secret that the artisanal food and beverage criticism field is a pretty privileged bunch.

    Tapped But Unsaved

    Yesterday, I discovered just how different two very similar concepts could be when I was sent two separate emails attempting to sell me beer and beer-related products as a Valentine’s Day present. The first was from Saveology, one of the many generic deal sites to which I am subscribed. More men than women prefer beer, so, from a marketing perspective,…
