The first portable, electric kegerator on the market, this patent-pending invention holds 1/6 of a barrel or a 5 gallon homebrew keg of your favorite beer or other beverage, keeps it cold without the inevitable melting ice and dispenses it with a carbon dioxide cartridge.
New California law combats keg theft; GABF beer brewed entirely with N.C. ingredients; Hill Farmstead expansion to double production capacity; and Maui Brewing joins in-flight beers from craft breweries.
As anybody with a kegerator knows, the impromptu parties always happen where the beers are. That’s why it’s so important to keep tabs on your taps. Kegbot is a software and hardware one-two punch that keeps track of how much beer has been poured out of a keg, so you know when to replace it.
New York’s brewers & wholesalers scrambled by Hurricane Sandy; brewers increasingly skeptic about plastic kegs; North American Breweries sold to Cervecería Costa Rica; Minneapolis brewers embattled in trademark dispute; and C&C Group purchases Vermont Hard Cider for $305 Million.
Post office may permit mailing of beer and wine; Alchemy & Science preparing to conduct craft beer chemistry; Dave Farnworth passes away; Michigan now tagging kegs with bar codes; and November elections bring changes to alcohol laws in Georgia and Washington.
Over the years, brewers have come up with four basic types of packaging—casks, bottles, kegs and cans. Each type of package protects beer in different ways, and can cause the beer to taste quite different.
