hoppy canadian thanksgiving!

appropriately enough for my cbc column tomorrow, the 21 best pumpkin beers in america
according to thrillist cigar city comes out on top

also from thrillist, the best beers in america as judged at gabf

and the full list of winners
huge congratulations to one of my faves, breakside brewing for their win in the coveted american style ipa category!

the next beer trend?  red ipas?

and from my hometown, a story about a guy i used to know
barry imber, designer

hard ciders that are as good as beer
(the articles says better, but what do they know)

a potential downside to the current craft beer boom?
a bust caused by too many new brewers who haven't learnt their craft before unleashing bad beer into the market
be sure to read to the end of the article, where the doom and gloom is lifted!
like i always say, the good breweries will remain
those who can't put a quality product out there will not survive, boom or otherwise

from pike brewing:

On September 16, 2014 local Pike alumni gathered to brew Pike Reunion 25, a collaboration brew. The recipe was designed by many of Pike's alumni brewers and local alumni came togethe r to help Dean and the Pike brew crew, brew Pike's 25th Anniversary beer: a beer inspired by the first beer brewed at Pike. The excitement is building-the beer is being kegged and casked. It will be served at Pike's anniversary party along with some special brews from Pike alumni brewers, and a host of special Pike beers: Pike Wood-Aged Kilt Lifter (aged in Oola whiskey barrels), Pike Entire (aged in Dry Fly Wheat Whiskey barrels), Pike Wolf of the Woods Hop Flower Ale (brewed with wet, fresh Mosaic hop flowers grown on Loftus Ranch, Yakima Valley, WA), Pike Harlot's Harvest Pumpkin Ale, Pike Auld Acquaintance (in honor of Jack Joyce of Rogue) Holiday Ale. Every available Pike beer will be on tap for your enjoyment; and there will be food and entertainment.
Please join us on Oct. 17th to celebrate Pike's 25th Anniversary .
The 2nd World's Shortest Non-Motorized Parade will begin at 5:30 pm. from Copperworks Distillery located at 1250 Alaskan Way (owner, Jason Parker, was our 1st brewer) uphill to Pike Brewery.

A party will follow at our pub, museum, and brewery.
