Weekly Growler Fill | National Beer News Roundup
New beers, new locations and new ways to use hops. Also, drink the most popular beer from the country you’re cheering for in the World Cup. You can find all this and more in this edition of the Weekly Growler Fill.
In honor of the world cup, we must honor beer from around the world. Check out the most popular beer from each country participating in this year’s World Cup.

…and it’s not all that surprising. The ingredients include water, barley malt, rice, yeast, hops. Although there aren’t any crazy additives on the list, who knows what happens to those ingredients before they turn into the flavored water that is Bud Light.
A few of us Porch Drinkers recently visited the new site to celebrate the brewery’s 20th anniversary and we can’t wait to start drinking there. Great Divide’s new place will include a larger tap room, a larger warehouse space and a canning line! Don’t worry Denverites, the new place is only a few blocks away from the old location.
