I already knew that 21st Amendment contract brewed their beers, but in Minnesota at Cold Springs. However, on the can of Brew Free or Die I had tonight I noticed it said it was hand crafted and canned in Memphis, TN. Are they brewing and bottling (well, canning) in two separate locations now? And more for a discussion, I'm still conflicted about contract brewing--while I really don't have a problem with gypsy brewers (a la the recent 'skin in the game' conversation) or contract brewing on principle this usually translates to "as long as the beer is good." (As in, if the beer is lousy then contract/gypsy brewing = buuuu.) But what about being an environmentally conscious drinker? If I'm in SF then 21A is a local brewer--but only at the brewpub. Otherwise they are shipping their beer halfway across the country. Cans cut down on the impact but its still a long distance. Where's the "local" in this situation (and I'm sure they're not the only one--am I correct in thinking that the iconic Sam Adams isn't brewed in Boston?)--San Francisco at the brewpub (but only on tap), Minnesota, or Tennessee?
