The legendary band Sublime teamed up with AleSmith Brewing Co. of San Diego, California to create a beer in honor of the 25th anniversary of their debut album. The beer is a Mexican style lager that’s perfect for a pre-concert tailgate.
Harry Potter Ice Cream
Apparently, Pennsylvania brewery Yuengling has a sister company that makes ice cream, and their newest flavor is Butter Beer – a flavor inspired by the fictitious drink in the world of Harry Potter. The mix of butterscotch and buttercream ice cream with a butterscotch swirl sounds pretty magical.
New BA Sales Director
The Brewer’s Association just announced that they hired a new sales director, Kevin Doidge. Doidge is a marketing guru who has worked in almost every industry imaginable, but who also manages to find time to homebrew.
Even though the Girl Scouts can’t actually partner with a brewery to make cookie flavored beers, that didn’t stop Southern Tier from creating a beer based on the classic Thin Mint cookie. Thick Mint is an imperial stout brewed with cocoa nibs and mint and clocking in at 10 percent ABV.
