The rise of cocktail beer is a trend that is popping up across the country. The newest entrant into the cocktail-flavored brew market is Dry Dock Brewing in Aurora, CO, which introduces its Docktails line on March 1. Read More
Event Preview | Detroit Beer Experiment at the Detroit Fall Beer FestivalOctober 23, 2019 | Danny King
The Michigan Brewers’ Guild 11th Annual Detroit Fall Beer festival is coming up this week (Friday and Saturday, October 25-26), which means Detroit beer fans (and writers) get the privilege of having some of the best breweries in the state in their backyard. It also means the return of the Detroit Beer Experiment. Last year, the festival provided fans with the enjoyable Faygo-infused (and inspired) beers, so what’s in store for this year? We asked Dave Cicotte of Brew Detroit, who was able to provide a sneak preview.
Event Recap | Uppers and Downers 2019April 2, 2019 | Mike Zoller
To call Uppers and Downers “just” a coffee beer fest would be a disservice to how the event highlights both the coffee and the beer industry.

Fullsteam Brewery – Summer Basil Farmhouse AleSeptember 17, 2013 | Erin Petrey
IBU: Unavailable but Minimal
The advent of football season and the slowly dropping mercury signals to us all that the days of summer are sadly over. Though I welcome fall, my favorite season, chock full of sweaters, pumpkin-flavored everything, and the holiest of all horse racing meets – Keeneland – I still find myself grasping onto the final remnants of all that is summery.

Faking Adulthood | Cocktail RecipesJune 10, 2013 | Kate Stark 3
I don’t know what’s so impressive about being able to mix up anything more than a Cape Codder (cranberry juice + vodka), but there’s something about it that says — in a very cool, collected and understated way — that you’ve got it together.

The Kentucky Derby is evocative of many iconic institutions: lavish hats, faster-than-light Thoroughbreds and, of course, the Mint Julep. After all, no Kentucky party is complete without a bit of Bourbon.
