Kingston, MA, October 15, 2013 – In a continued effort to lend a helping hand during difficult times, the L. Knife and Son Companies have announced that during the month of October, for every case of Colorado beer sold, 50¢ will be donated to a flood relief fund.
The L. Knife and Son Companies are extremely proud to work hand-in-hand with the people of Colorado on a daily basis. The list of Colorado breweries that L. Knife is privileged to distribute includes: Avery Brewing, Boulder Beer, Breckenridge Brewery, Crazy Mountain Brewery, Gravity Brewing, Great Divide Brewing, Left Hand Brewing, New Belgium Brewing, New Plant Beer, Oskar Blues Brewery, Redstone Meadery, Ska Brewing, and Tommyknocker Brewery.
L. Knife also encourages the public to keep in mind that Oskar Blues has created a new non-profit business to help all those affected by the floods: Can'd Aid Foundation. Left Hand Brewery has also created several ways to donate to their CO Flood Relief Fund.
What do you want in a summer beer? I know that I want something that is relatively low in alcohol since I’ll probably want to consume more than one. While shandies are very popular, and they are often my lower alcohol choice, there are times when I want my beer to be just, well, beer.

If you haven't stumbled on this video from the 2010 GABF yet, please check it out. Beer Nation did a nice segment from the Farm to Table Food Pavilion at this year's Great American Beer Festival. Special release craft beers were paired-up with dishes made with local ingredients by students at the Culinary School of the Rockies. This terrific event celebrated the world of craft beer and its well-deserved place at the table. Insert: clapping and whistling!
So I get this email from my friend & local bar owner Dave about this bill that's been introduced in the New York State Assembly that requires the "reasonable guidelines" that all bars/restaurants in areas w/populations over 1 million (ie: New York City) & have either rooftop or backyard areas to have a permit to do so. Now that alone doesn't sound all that bad.
In late 2009, Sixpoint Craft Ales President Shane Welch and Sixpoint Engineer David Liatti were having a pint of Sixpoint Sweet Action at The Modern - the bar and restaurant adjacent to the world famous Museum of Modern Art in NYC. Earlier that day, Shane and Dave attended a design exhibit which featured one of David's products. Afterwards, they decided to hit up the Museum. After an afternoon of viewing the likes of Piet Mondrian, Andrew Wyeth, Salvador Dali, and Andy Warhol, Dave and Shane kicked back and began to have a beer-inspired discussion about the true meaning of Modern art - what it is, and where it could be found. After some deliberation, they had their "aha" moment - to discover real MODERN ART one need not look further than the product they created on a daily basis - sitting right in front of their own eyes. Could it actually be that real modern art is not confined to austere museums - on display to isolated bystanders - but rather flowing from the taps in bars all around NYC? Has a grassroots, productive and creative renaissance swept NYC, and the entire country? If not, they concluded, they were determined to make it so!
