Belgium-based Anheuser-Busch InBev is a step closer to having to sell its Kentucky distributorships as the Kentucky Senate has passed the controversial HB 168.

Worst. Idea. Ever.

When you’re picking out a beer, what flavors do you look for? If hints of soured milk and burnt rubber, or a “goaty” taste sound delightful to you, then brews that were aged for 170 years at the bottom of the Baltic Sea might just be your thing.

Portland’s Craft Beer Alliance (Nasdaq: BREW) boosted its bottom line by 12 percent last year as its revenue jumped past the $200 million for the first time.

Can’t we all just get along?

Innovation Brewing of Sylva makes only about 500 barrels of beer a year, mostly sold in Jackson County. But size doesn’t matter in a tough trademark dispute with the much bigger Bell’s Brewery of Kalamazoo, Michigan, which made more than 310,000 barrels last year.

Stone does a solid

While we follow our own muse at Stone, we also pay attention to our fans. Believe it or not, even with more than 600,000 followers across all of our social media channels, we read each and every comment posted on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and more.

Of course we hit Buy/NoBuy, I’d Tap That, and all the usual nonsense you have grown to loathe. Make sure you go check out Craft Carolina to read our stories and also every day to see what Sam has going on. Finally, remember to click that banner. All you are doing is helping for hosting and also getting our Social Security numbers and such.
