As a follow-up to the post I wrote about the debut of Goose Island 312 cans, check out this unofficial promotional video created to celebrate their launch. Gotta love the Hall & Oates!
Lakefront Brewery in Milwaukee, Wisconsin gives one of the best brewery tours in the nation … or so I’ve read. Since I have not yet had the chance to travel north to experience it myself, I visited their website for more info and discovered their nine-part video brewery tour online. The above clip is only the first one. Watching these videos is almost like being there, except no free beer. So, I suggest cracking open a chilled Lakefront beer to enhance the realism.
You may have seen this very creative video about Beeri, the Siri/Twitter powered R/C car that “pours” your can of beer. But, if you look closely, you’ll notice that it features two breweries: a can of Dale’s Pale Ale from Oskar Blues Brewery in Lyons, CO and a logo pint glass from Yazoo Brewing Company in Nashville, TN.

St. Louis, MO — Root beer is neither a root nor a beer. Discuss. It’s true, root beer’s connection to real beer is in name only, but we’ll make an exception this one time. Fitz’s Premium Root Beer is truly an American classic that deserves a spot next to the storied craft breweries in the fizzy history of carbonated beverages. Located in St. Louis, Missouri—in the Delmar Loop area of University City, for those familiar with the area—Fitz’s has been pumping out bottles of delicious root beer since 1947.
