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.

ABV 101 - A Guide to the Alcohol by Volume of Craft Beer, Hard Liquor & Wine

Everything to know about ABV. How much alcohol is in a standard serving. The history of measuring the content of alcohol. And, of course, the risks of consuming too much alcohol.

Dog-inspired Craft Beer and Brewery names

In the eternal fight for man's (and woman's) best friendship, are two forces of nature, beer, and dogs. Craft brewers around the United States have done an excellent job of marrying the two, either in their chosen brewery name, a specific craft beer, or, in the case of Everett, Massachusetts' own Bone Up Brewing Company, creating a whole craft beer series dedicated to dogs.
