Here’s news making the rounds in the beer world:
-According to beer industry data, Coors Light has overtaken Budweiser as the country’s second-most-shipped beer. What beer is in first place? Bud Light.
-A couple of Illinois college kids took home the World Series of Beer Pong title and a $50,000 prize recently.
-Mustang Brewing released its latest company newsletter, which includes an interesting mention of a new line of beers called the Saddle Bag Series. My guess is a line of more complex/strong craft beers. I’m working on more details.
-Ever wonder how much it costs to enjoy beer at your favorite NHL hockey game? Of course you did. Well, here’s a list that shows what each NHL team charges. Most expensive on the list? None other than my Toronto Maple Leafs. Expensive beer, expensive tickets, crappy hockey. Sounds like a winning combination!
-We’ve all heard of aging beer on oak or bourbon barrels, but how about aging it on the same wood used to wrap and box cigars? I’m not so sure about that brew.
