Fashion Forward

I received a heads up on another video making the rounds in the craft brewing world - featuring a collab-brew-ation between Karben4 Brewing and Summit Brewing. Seems like there are a whole lot of brewers out there with an affinity for our great-looking BSG schwag.  =)

Thanks for reppin’ BSG in your video Ryan. We’re looking forward to having a go at that tasty collab as well. Cheers!


There comes a time when one feels the need to branch out, explore new territory and see what exists beyond the norm.  That kind of time has come for BSG in the form of the craft cider explosion in the United States.  It’s no secret that cider is on the rise in the U.S., and it’s not just cideries making it happen; wineries, micros, brewpubs and regional breweries are getting involved in a big way as well. The demand for cider making ingredients is knocking on the door.

Post CBC

The 2014 Craft Brewers Conference is in the books.  What an experience!  We want to thank our amazing customers, fantastic suppliers and the BA staff for helping make this the best CBC to date.  Also, we were overwhelmed by all the new friends and faces we met last week.

CBC 2014 - BASECAMP set up

Well, we made it to Denver.  From all over the country, the BSG CraftBrewing crew converged to work as one. Setting up BASECAMP for the 2014 Craft Brewers Conference.


One of the newest hops on the scene, Medusa™ is unlike anything you’ve encountered before. Native to Colorado and New Mexico, humulus lupulus neomexicanus is an entirely different species from its European cousin, humuls lupulus lupulus.  Grown exclusively by CLS Farms in Yakima WA, where 8 different varieties of neo-mexicanus are being developed.

Many of BSG CraftBrewing’s Sales Managers have a background as brewers.  Now and then, they get a chance to put on the rubber boots, roll up their sleeves, and get back in the brewhouse.
