Brewer Demand for the 2013 Great American Beer Festival Overwhelming

Seeing Stars: A Q&A with Enlightenment Ales

The more I speak with brewers, the more I'm realizing that there are two types of breweries: specialists and generalists. Lowell-based Enlightenment Ales falls firmly in the specialist category, as possibly the only commercial brewery in the United States producing bière de champagne using the traditional méthode champenoise. To explain this mouthful of French and to let me in on what's next for the three-year-old brewery, I contacted founder and one-man army Ben Howe.

American Craft Beer Celebrates the Red, White & Brew

The Fourth of July is the one day every year when America stops what it's doing to commemorate our Independence from Great Britain. It's also a time for friends, family and food, fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, political speeches and ceremonies...and, oh yeah, beer.

Any craft beer taproom and bottle shop can say they are great (that's just good marketing), but it takes a special place to actually be great. Sitting about a dozen yards off of Port Townsend Bay in Port Townsend, Washington, Pourhouse reaches that second tier. We sat down with owners Virginia Marston and Ned Herbert to discuss the bar, the bay, and of course, the beer.
