Chicago's Week in Beer, June 27-30

Chicago's Week in Beer, June 27-30

Yet another of the brewers that helped kick off the craft beer revolution has been snapped up by a multinational. This past week, Stone Brewing of San Diego was purchased by the U.S. subsidiary of Sapporo Breweries, Ltd., for $165 million. With the sale, Stone’s “anti-sell-out” founder Greg Koch announced he would soon be retiring from the company. Sapporo, which had previous bought out Anchor Brew, announced it plans to double capacity at Stone’s San Diego and Richmond, VA in order to brew Sapporo in the States, bringing production onshore from Vietnam and Canada. Goodbeerhunting.

While I don’t normally stray far from the Chicago-NW Indiana metropolitan area, I am posting Tuesday’s opening of online ticket sales for Toppling Goliath’s Mornin’ Delight release. Pickup for the imperial stout “whale” will be August 5 & 6 at TG’s Decorah, Iowa brewery.

Apologies for those who might have gotten a security warning trying to access my calendar articles a few days earlier. I found one of my security certificates was expiring and tried to renew it. Ended up making my entire hosted content inaccessible. Finally I banged at my Control Panel settings until everything came back.
