Things We've Written

What is Krausening?

Commercial brewers and homebrewers alike employ experimental and traditional brewing techniques to get their craft beer just right. One of those techniques is Krausening, a traditional German approach that eschews adding any sugars or extras to the fermented beer, with the goal of producing a "cleaner" beer. In summary, and ultimate effect, to kräusen a beer is to add carbonation to it.

Brewery Logos are (sometimes) the best.

Good branding is a cornerstone of any business. Craft beer drinkers want to know your brewery's mission, they want to be part of your community, and they want the artisanal stature of your beer to show up in your physical artwork, including your cans, your taproom walls, and most importantly, your brewery logo.

What is the best beer for beer batter?

There's no one single choice when it comes to choosing the best beer to mix with your batter-making ingredients - egg, flour, and (optional) spice. Choose a beer that matches the spirit of the meal that you are looking to cook. That's what it is most important.
