So we're half way through American Craft Beer Week, and I have been trying to celebrate a different craft beer each night of the week so far. Sierra Nevada Pale, Lost Coast Great White, Firestone Walker's Pale 31 were Monday through Wednesday. Any recommendations for tonight!?
I'll be stopping by the brewery next door to us (Ale Industries) for an IPA most likely, but when I get home to watch the Warriors and Sharks games, I'll need an arsenal of American Craft Beers waiting in the…Continue

So we're getting into the spring / summer seasons, and that means the styles of beer in the fridge are going to start to change. Personally, the spring is my favorite time to be drinking IPAs and Pales. As soon as summer hits, it's all about Kolsch, but a nice crisp pale ale still does the trick. Anybody drink other styles of beer during the summer? Wheats? Sours?

So I was flipping through a few pictures from NHC 2012 and couldn't help but get excited for the upcoming year. Seattle / Bellevue was awesome, so really hoping Philly can show us another great time! Beer and cheesesteaks - can hardly wait! Here's a picture of us setting up the booth last year...decided it wasn't…Continue

We've all heard the "all work, no play" phrase before, so we make sure that the phrase around here is "all work, more play". A little over a week ago we all decided that it's been too long since we had gone to a brewery together, so after work, we jumped on a bus up to Santa Rosa, California to visit a MoreBeer!…Continue

So occasionally we like to get together and have a beer after work (by occasionally we mean pretty much everyday after work). Most of the time we just have whatever beer is here, but about once a month we have a "themed" night. IPA, Stouts and Porters, Light Beer, Lagers, Sours...you get the picture. Well our recent sour hour did not disappoint - see the lineup below. If you're ever around MoreBeer! during a sour hour, make sure you bring a glass!…Continue

Just wanted to make a mention that we just received the newest hops to our lineup. Mosaic and Calypso. Mosaic has a great blueberry aroma, with hints of melon and lemon as well. We've heard this hop is used in Russian Rivers' "Happy Hops" ale. Calypso is a higher AA hop, with our current inventory…Continue

Great article on starting a brewery here!
I read through it and it has everything from what locations you should be considering, to what kind of margins you can expect, to what kinds of beers you should be brewing!
Good luck to all you entrepreneurs out there - cheers!
