As I mentioned in Sunday's post, I noticed Highland Brewing Company was starting to get into the canning game. Turns out, they had been canning just one beer, but Beer Street Journal reports they will release their second canned beer later this month. BSJ is also reporting that fellow Asheville, North Carolina brewery Hi-Wire is also following suit, canning their new goze, while Longmont, Colorado's Left Hand Brewing just announced a canning initiative starting this winter.
Philadelphia recently played host to a charity "pop-up street pub" run out of a tractor trailer by Deschutes Brewery.
A North Carolina Native American tribe is suing Anheuser-Busch over use of their symbols in Budweiser advertising. If you look at the picture in the link, you can see the circular, multi-colored logo in the upper left hand corner, and the tribe slogan under "Bud Light".
The Travel Channel recently posted an article featuring 6 international hot spots of beer brewing, from Australia to Scotland.
Finally, DraftMag and others reported that Stone Brewing Brewmaster Mitch Steele is leaving Stone at the end of the month after a decade with the brewery. He plans to open his own brewery, calling it "a bucket list thing." Steele is responsible for many of Stone's top beers, including the Enjoy By series and others, and wrote a book on IPAs.
