Well, 2022 is a wrap. Let’s see what we have in store for us in 2023. But before we do, let’s take one more glance in the rearview at the last twelve months.
It seemed that in 2022, the brewing industry finally had a chance to climb out of the gaping hole left by the global pandemic. Despite challenges, hurdles, and pitfalls galore, we survived. And hopefully, we’re all a little tougher, a little stronger, and a little more empowered by beer.
Below we’ve compiled thirty of our favorite articles published in 2022. Some of these were among our most popular articles but many were simply ones we’re proud to have published. As you start your new year, we hope you’ll give a read to any articles you might’ve missed and revisit those you enjoyed as much as we did.
