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. =)
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.
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.
