I, Eddie Glick, proclaim New Holland’s Zoomer the stylistic polestar for the American wheat. What, exactly, does that mean? It’s not the best, it’s not the worst, but it’s probably very close to what most craft brewers are aiming for when they’re making a refreshing summer thirst quencher. It pours light but extremely cloudy, with a towering, airy stack of foam. That lightness carries on through the palate, with very little body but a refreshing shot of citrus and lemon. Light, decidedly uncomplex, with a very clean finish. No, it won’t blow your mind, or even exercise it, but it will wash away the dust in the back of your throat after putting in that load of hay.

Beer Dorks News

Want to know how healthy the craft beer industry is? As always, look to Portland. Craft pioneer Bridgeport announces sudden closure, adding to a growing list of PDX casualties.
Did Anheuser-Busch Chicago offer their shit beer to Cody Parkey before his missed field goal? Because that may explain why he "accidentally" biffed it.
Chicago now has the most breweries of any city in the country. Other things Chicago has the most of: murders, mobsters, and Ditkas.
Trying to spin it positive, BA releases end of year graphic. Only 5% growth in the craft sector when nearly 1000 new breweries opened? That's a collapse waiting to happen.
R.I.P. Tallgrass... another casualty as the regional/national craft beer market continues to get squeezed.
Wait... Constellation Brands cut all of the Ballast Point and Funky Buddha sales staff? They merged it with their Corona/Modelo staff?? We're SHOCKED!!!
Pizza Beer founder crying about failure of company, blames everyone else. Reminder, the beer tasted like vomit. Try having better ideas or making better products so you're not a failure.
It's Bud Light so doesn't really matter, but we expect this beer to be sitting around for awhile.
Indiana brewery to open with controversial beer names to "get the conversation going". Translation: taking advantage of serious issues for free publicity.
Hundreds of amazing beers in Wisconsin and the Cubs took back the one everyone drinks just because it exists and people have heard of it. How fitting...
