    BREWS & NEWS 7 March 2013

    Three Stories from Real Beer News:

    ANCHOR BREWING TO BUILD WATERFRONT BREWERY

    “The San Francisco Giants and Anchor Brewing have announced that Anchor will build a second facility on the San Francisco waterfront.  The 212,000-square-foot space in the Giants’ Mission Rock development will not replace Anchor’s existing plant on Potrero Hill, but add capacity. The company’s capacity would nearly quadruple from 180,000 to 680,000 barrels a year. If everything proceeds on schedule, construction could begin in late 2014 and brewing in 2016.”

    The Huffington Post covered the story but you can get the scoop from Anchor Brewing.

    DOGFISH HEAD, SIERRA NEVADA HAVE AND IPA GLASS FOR YOU

    Dogfish Head and Sierra Nevada, both known for their IPAs, have collaborated with German glassware maker Spiegelau to launch a beer glass that is designed to enhance the taste of the ale, which does not typically have a special vessel. The new design — which debuts in stores and online in April — is meant to maximize the IPA tasting experience by having a thin wall for cold
    retention and a slender shape to amplify the hops aroma. The wavelike ridges at the bottom also aerate the drink to balance flavors. A photo may be seen here: http://bit.ly/W0nKTx.

    Also giving ink to the story are the folks at Dogfish Head, A Perfect Pint and Boston Magazine.

    SAM ADAMS WILL PACKAGE BOSTON LAGER IN 'SAM CAN'

    “After two years of research that cost about $1 million, the Boston Beer Co. has announced it will sell Samuel Adams Boston Lager in cans this summer. No pictures were available yet of the can, which "aims to provide a drinking experience that is closer to the taste and comfort of drinking beer from a glass," according to the Boston Beer. "The debate over bottles vs. cans has been a sticking point for brewers in the craft beer community for years," company founder Jim Koch said, in a release. "In the past, I had my doubts about putting Sam Adams in a can because I wasn't convinced that Boston Lager would taste as good as it does from a bottle. But cans have changed. And I believe we've designed a can that provides a slight but noticeably better
    drinking experience than the standard beer can." The company is calling the new can the "Sam Can" and it has a flared lip and wider top, making it closer to drinking beer out of a glass when customers choose not to pour it into a glass.”

    The “Sam Can” as covered by MSN Money


    SMALL BREWER FEDERAL EXCISE TAX BILL RETURNS

    “The Brewers Association reports that H.R. 494, the Small Brewer Reinvestment
    and Expanding Workforce Act (Small BREW Act) has been reintroduced in the
    House of Representatives. The bipartisan legislation, which was reintroduced
    by Representatives Jim Gerlach (R-Pa.) and Richard E. Neal (D-Mass.), seeks
    to recalibrate the federal beer excise tax that small brewers pay on every
    barrel of beer they produce. Under current federal law, brewers making less
    than 2 million barrels annually pay $7 per barrel on the first 60,000 barrels
    they brew, and $18 per barrel on every barrel thereafter. The Small BREW Act
    would create a new rate structure that reflects the evolution of the craft
    brewing industry. The rate for the smallest brewers and brewpubs would be
    $3.50 on the first 60,000 barrels. For production between 60,001 and 2
    million barrels the rate would be $16 per barrel. Any brewer that exceeds 2
    million barrels (about 1 percent of the U.S. beer market) would begin paying
    the full $18 rate. Breweries with an annual production of 6 million barrels
    or less would qualify for these tax rates.”

    Sounds like a definition for “Craft” beer to me…
