Josh Ritenour

Born and bred in the great state of O-H-I-O, Josh grew up like most Midwesterners: drinking macro beer and having a sudden urge to move away. It was only during his move down South that he discovered craft beer. Ironically, it was Bell’s Two Hearted Ale, brewed a little over 100 miles north of his hometown. Since then his palate has matured into a love of everything sour and barrel-aged. His favorite beercation spots are Asheville, NC, Denver, CO and Grand Rapids, MI.

All that nonsense is about to change.

Georgia Beer Day Events | January 28, 2017

January 28, 2017 | Avg. Reading Time: 3 min

While small and independent craft breweries across the nation strive to compete with big beer for shelf space and tap handle placement, there’s another prominent movement happening in the South. More specifically, in the one remaining state that still prohibits the on-site purchase of beer at breweries: Georgia, ooh Georgia.

However, thanks to the unshakable determination of the Georgia Craft Brewers Guild, a bill now exists in the state Senate to modernize Georgia’s ridiculous beer laws once and for all.

How to One Up that Pretzel Necklace

September 24, 2015 | 1 Avg. Reading Time: 1 min

The age old debate on whether to wear a pretzel necklace to a beer festival dates back to Baron Marzen Dortmunder Zwickel Weizendoppelbock III’s attendance at the very first Oktoberfest in 1810, the tradition continued when Benjamin Franklin donned his own braided treat to Thomas Jefferson’s collaboration fest with fellow founding father Samuel Adams. And now we celebrate these pioneers by donning our own tasty carb-tastic accessories. However, as the times change and fashion evolves we’ve learned to upgrade our necklaces to hold much more than mere pretzels. While some have tricked out their gear with beef jerky, cookies, doughnuts and more, we thought we’d take it to the next level by asking Xzibit to… Read More
