Oskar Blues and the CAN’d Aid foundation help out Flint residents, Asahi considers a bid for Grolsch and Peroni, and Untappd has a new owner. These are just a few of the craft beer news stories you need to know. So, what are you waiting for? Crack open a cold one and get to reading this edition of the Weekly Growler Fill.
It’s been a long time coming but FINALLY we have dedicated some of our ‘free’ time to talking about one of our guiltiest of pleasures, cigars AND beer. The Puff and a Pour series will showcase world-class cigars paired up with some of the finest craft brews. We aren’t professionals (we kind of are) and so much like our devotion to all things craft, it will be geared towards being fun and educational first and foremost. For our first entry into the series, we take a torch to the Cappuccino Nub Café from Oliva and pop the top on the Barrel Aged Ten Fidy from Oskar Blues.

The last Thursday in February came and went in Washington, D.C., just as it did elsewhere across the rest of the United States. But Feb. 26, 2015, was a notable date among the residents of the District for one particular number: 71.
This was the day Initiative 71, which legalized the possession of certain amounts of personal marijuana, was implemented by the city. Whatever regulatory views individuals residents of the District actually hold, this initiative’s implementation furthered support of “home rule,” which is the concept that D.C. residents should govern their own affairs, without full federal interaction.

“An amalgamation of breweries. A dichotomous combination of flavors. Tart and refreshing yet full bodied and malty. It’s not black magic, it’s BlackTart.” – Cincinnati Beer Week

Next Sunday is the late, great Robert Burns’s birthday. For those who are not familiar with Burns, he was a well-known Scottish poet from the 18th century, considered the national poet of that fair land. Most people know about one of his many poems titled Auld Lang Syne, a little song we all sing tipsily around the New Year. Apart from that small element of Hogmanay, there are others who commemorate his life and his poetry by celebrating his birthdate every January 25. Robert Burns Night dinners have been popular events for many years now: parties that are not wanting in scotch, bagpipers, poetry readings, haggis, neaps, and tatties. In my experience, festival-goers will most likely find themselves at a brewery where there is a fresh tapping of a scotch ale, or more than one! Therefore, what better way to commemorate our dear friend Robbie than with a few of the best scotch ales out there*?
Ska Brewing Announces Litigation Against O[xxx]r Blues Brewery
DURANGO, Colo., (Apr. 1, 2014) — The craft beer industry has recently been rocked by in-fighting over trademarks—and the lack thereof—and it appears that Ska Brewing and Oskar Blues Brewery are the latest two who will be fighting it out over a name.
If you’re one of the lucky ones who are still partying, you may need need some fuel to start off your morning. I find that the perfect breakfast brew to help transition your morning to awesomeness is the beermosa. A combination of beer and orange juice, with a ratio of somewhere from ⅔ beer with ⅓ OJ to ¾ beer with ¼ OJ.
