    Greetings!

    We've got a bit of a running joke here at BeerAdvocate. Every month the team says: "this is the best issue ever!" It usually is, as we all strive to make it that way, but this month it seriously is. Never has BA mag been so packed with information. We've added three new pieces of content, plus we've got two features for your reading pleasure. The mag is looking slicker than every too.

    About the Cover: Megan Parisi at the construction site of Washington DC's Bluejacket, where she'll be brewmaster. PG. 56. Photograph by Alison Klein.

    Got the issue the other night and it's solid

    My only comment is the misleading headline in the Beer News section. There's an article talking about Alpine ending growler sales of Expo due to illegal selling on eBay but the article is titled Alpine Cracks Down on Illegal Beer Trading.

    Readin through it now. Found an error in Beer News about Pelican Brewing, Pelican is located in Oregon not Washington as the article states.

    Thanks for pointing out the errors, which unfortunately happen. This was our biggest issue to-date content-wise, so it was a lot of work for the team. Good news: we aim to add more eyes to help us proof and fact check with future issues. And we'll make sure to do an errata next issue.

    Cheers!

    So is Alpine ending the Expo growlers and bottles according to the latest issue?
