  The short answer is no…especially if you’re a craft beer fan. On November 1, a new law took effect in Utah that’s being heralded as a breakthrough in the state. And we have to ask if upping the alcohol limit of beer that can be sold in grocery and convenience stores to 5% is that big a deal? First, a little background… Any analysis of Utah’s alcohol restrictions comes with a necessary caveat. Utah is home to the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints.

We often think of entrepreneurs as risk-takers. In reality, the ones who play it safe by keeping their day jobs have a better chance of succeeding in the long run, according to a pair of researchers who tracked entrepreneurs for more than a decade. Their study found that fledgling business owners who kept their day jobs were 33 percent less likely to fail compared to the people who quit their jobs while trying to start a new business.

  It was a marriage made in heaven…pizza and beer. But now disappointing earnings results from corporate pizza and beer producers are suggesting that this marriage may have hit the skids. Say it ain’t so Joe… The corporate giants behind brands like Pizza Hut, Domino’s, Molson Coors and Budweiser recently released Q3 earning reports which suggest that something profound is happening because Americans are abandoning mass-market pizza and beer brands in droves.

  October 21, 2019 When Brent Patterson saw an image of a child getting sick after drinking dirty water, he admits he was shaken. “I just remember seeing a photo of this little girl drinking dirty water and [the girl] throwing up,” he says. “She has nothing else. So it’s either she dies of thirst or she drinks this water and takes her chances of getting sick.” That image, and the realization that hundreds of millions of people worldwide don’t have access to clean water, compelled Brent to start a fundraiser which would eventually become Drink Local Think Global.

Why? Because they love our beers… and beer styles, the vast majority of which we nicked from them and “Americanized” (amped, hopped, soured, hazed and... Read more

Some Trustworthy BBQ + Beer offerings. Photo by A.D. Cook, used with permission. Evolve or die is not just a motto, it’s a way of life for Las Vegas. This odd conglomeration of fantasy principalities existing incongruously in a harsh desert climate is continuously evolving and redefining itself. With Bob Barnes (a native of Las Vegas) as my capable and beer-savvy guide, I returned once again to check out the current state of beer in the city that really never sleeps. The vast gaudy mausoleums of gaming and chance that populate the teaming Las Vegas “Strip” are windowless wonders of... Read more
