The Best Brews For Barbecues

Summer is in high gear in America, and that means two things: barbecues and beer. Especially tomorrow. When it comes to reasons to celebrate, the only thing that might come close to matching the American Revolution is the good beer revolution. Just think: twenty-five years ago, we had a few...

The Class of 2013, Part One

Now that Spring 2013 has sprung, 2012 seems like a distant memory. Right? So last year! With a new brewery opening every day on average, we sampled quite deeply in 2012. And while it wasn’t easy, we did settle on a highly subjective list of just 20 packaged beers we hope...

Is spring here yet? Not quite, alas. But there’s a slew of beer week events across the country to tide us over. (Last May we previewed great beer fests in Philly, Chicago, Asheville, and Portland, OR; check that warm-weather list here and start planning ahead.) Organized by local...
