    what we really want to know is when it’s coming to Texas! Don’t you Yankees owe us something for gifting you with George W.?

    Owe you something for Shrub? Why yes, perhaps a load of Milwaukee’s Best and a bunch of pretzels. Maybe you can use the empties to build part of that border fence down there. No, not the one between Texas and Mexico – I think that wall is a really stupid idea. I mean the one between Texas and the rest of the U.S. so you can’t send us any more Bushes!

  3. Very cool! I’m a big fan of their Midas Touch, ever had it?

  4. beeractivist says:

    Yes indeed. In fact, I’ve even visited the tomb where they discovered the residue that they analyzed in order to produce the recipe. I wrote about it a little bit in my book. I’ve had a bottle of their Fort at home for a while that I’ve been waiting for the right occasion to pop open.

    Cheers!

    What I want to know is when they’re going to do more/some organic or local ingredients brews. I like supporting a great local brewery. Right now my organic beer comes from Vermont. (at least it’s on the east coast)

  6. beeractivist says:

    Yo SJ – Dogfish Head does do some local procurement, mainly for the food at their restaurant though. Water, the main ingredient in every beer, is sourced locally in nearly every brewery – that means roughly 90-95% of every beer comes straight out of the tap (or well, etc.).

    Their Chicory Stout, which is a winter seasonal beer, includes organic coffee beans from a local coffee roaster (of course the beans themselves were grown abroad but that’s unavoidable with coffee). In the U.S., hops are all grown in the pacific northwest right now due to diseases and pests elsewhere but this may very slowly start to change as Wisconsin and New York experiment with ways to bring back their local hop growing industries. Barley is grown all over the country and many brewers do end up using malted barley that is sourced from within their region since it can be cheaper anyway. However, barley needs to be malted, and unfortunately I don’t know how this factors into the transport footprint because I don’t know how many or where America’s maltsters are located. I’ll try to look into that and get back to you.

    Cheers,
    Chris
