Surly’s 2021 darkness has hit shelves, but no Darkness Day? It’s on indefinite hiatus due to outdated laws. Surly, Fulton, Indeed, Lift Bridge, Castle Danger and Schell’s breweries have come together to form the Alliance of Minnesota Craft Breweries. As the top breweries in Minnesota, representing nearly 60% of beer produced in Minnesota - they can’t sell beer directly to the consumer - including growlers or crowlers - as Minnesota caps sales once a brewery produces 20,000 barrels of craft beer per year. #FreeTheGrowler at https://supportmnbreweries.com/

Thursday October 28th 2021 - what's in store for 2022, two traditional whiskies, and a newish VT brewery?!

Today I’m drinking a No. 14 Bourbon whisky finished with Vt Maple Syrup from Vermont Spirits https://vermontspirits.com/our-spirits/

What will 2022 bring to the craft scene, according to the Manual it’s not as much as I thought - but apparently N?A and Low ABV beer will continue to grow, Influencers will have a bigger role and so will collabs, plus seltzer continues to sizzle (though other sources suggested it will fizzle a bit) and the newest hotspot is no longer VT, Portland, or San Diego - it’s now going to be Minneapolis? Will the Twin Cities be able to pull this off, read more at https://www.themanual.com/food-and-drink/craft-beer-trends-for-2022/

Benriach Single Malt Scotch has debuted two seasonal whisky releases in the U.S. based on early traditional methods of whisky-making. They’ll be costly - coming in at about $150 for Benriach Malting Season in a 750 ml bottle. This is made from hand-turned floor malts. Benriach Smoke Season uses a seasonal beaded malt approach that’s batch distilled and matured in first-fill bourbon barrels, combined with a high proportion of charred and toasted American virgin oak casks. Smoke Season is the most intensely smoked whisky to be released by the distillery and comes in at about $72 per 750 ml bottle. https://cheersonline.com/2021/10/20/benriach-releases-malting-smoke-season-scotch-whiskies/

And how did so many of us miss this? Lover Vermont Beer on Twitter https://twitter.com/LoveVermontBeer directed me to this. Scotch Hill Brewing Co. opened in downtown Fair Haven… on Aug. 12th! According to the Freeps, (aka Burlington Free Press) a half-dozen house beers were on tap Saturday, including a pale ale, an India pale ale, a Kolsch, a Scotch ale, a stout and the rock-band-inspired Mashing Pumpkin Ale that’s described by the brewer as “Pumpkin pie in a glass,” details at https://www.burlingtonfreepress.com/story/life/2021/10/28/vermont-beer-scotch-hill-brewing-fair-haven-vt/8557445002/

Wednesday October 27th, 2021 - Happy #NationalAmericanBeerDay #FooFighters #sake #Yuengling

Today for NATIONAL AMERICAN BEER DAY I’m drinking Lucy & Howe Biere Maison https://www.lucyandhowebrewing.com/our-beers

Yuengling found out about a 106 year old, Margaret Dilullo, who has had at least 31,000 beers in her life (mostly Yuengling and mostly their traditional Lager) so they decided to send her a gift. They pulled up to her driveway with a literal truckload of beer to share with friends and family. https://brobible.com/culture/article/106-year-old-margaret-dilullo-yuengling/

Elysian Brewing Taps Seattle’s Georgetown Morgue (a haunted house) to Deliver Spine-Chilling Thrills and beer! Actors from Georgetown Morgue say they’ll haunt your doorstep, and nightmares, as they deliver Elysian’s pumpkin beer variety pack. It’s all part of the brewery’s “Scary Good Delivery Service.” That started delivering today. Video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OCIaiyWkI-Q https://www.elysianbrewing.com/scarygooddelivery

And combining bands with booze! The Foo Fighters are celebrating their 25th anniversary, and the release of the band’s 10th album called “Medicine at Midnight”, by collaborating with TATENOKAWA to brew an original sake. The Sake is inspired by the title of their 10th album “Medicine at Midnight”, and is named “HANSHO” Japanese for “Midnight”. https://tatenokawa.com/en/sake/foofighters/

Bonus - McNeill’s Brewery in Vermont has announced they anticipate re-opening on May 1st 2022. Keep an eye on their Facebook page for more details https://www.facebook.com/McNeillsBrewery

Monday October 25th - #MMA #ConorMcGregor #Whiskey #Porter #Lager #Kuhl #Melvin #Untappd #TRU

Today I'm drinking a Cider Donut from Downeast Cider https://downeastcider.com/products/cider-donut

Melvin Brewing and premier outdoor apparel brand Kühl® giving back to the local communities where Melvin’s beer is sold and warming bodies with one KÜHL® jacket for every 10 cases or two kegs of Scenario Porter sold https://www.brewbound.com/news/melvin-brewing-and-kuhl-launch-new-scenario-porter

MMA fighter and former UFC champion Conor McGregor launched his successful Irish whiskey brand, Proper No. Twelve three years ago, but the Irish Whiskey Association might require some changes "the labelling, packaging, advertising, or promotion of an Irish Whiskey must not include a reference to any number (however expressed), if the reference to that number may create a likelihood of confusion on the part of the public as to whether the number relates to the maturation period of the Irish Whiskey, its age or when it was distilled" https://vinepair.com/booze-news/conor-mcgregor-proper-no-twelve-whiskey-name-change/

And TRU Colors Brewery in Wilmington, North Carolina, beer is used to decrease gun violence and bring people closer together after a partner in Untappd, George Taylor learned of gang violence in the area. Long story short, after bringing rival gang leaders together local groups say gang violence has decreased by 51.2% locally. Was the beer the reason? Seems plausible! https://www.hopculture.com/tru-colors-beer-decreases-gang-violence/

Bourbon pickins might be a bit slim for the holidays. Since it takes years to make, even with over 500,000 estimated barrels aging right now, retailers suggest shopping now for the holidays https://www.cantonrep.com/story/news/2021/10/16/why-bourbon-gone-bourbon-drinkers-rise-stark-county/6102001001/

And one of the bigger crazes (and it's expected to get bigger in 2022) is alcohol-free booze. The American Alcohol Free Spirits Association wants to help makers do it - "AAFSA’S memberships will provide multiple benefits to the people who will be associated with it in the future, including expertise, easily accessible information, committee structure, publications, and research data." and have launched a crowdfunding campaign https://americanalcoholfreespiritsassociation.org/indiegogo-crowdfunding
