Weekend Reading #36

I love lounging in bed on weekends and catching up on all my favourite beery reading. From the American craft beer scene, local beer news and anything else that tickles my beery fancy, there is a lot of excellent reading material out there! Every weekend (though I may miss the occasional one due to forgetfulness!) I’m posting a list of the articles and blogs that have enjoyed and hope that you will too!

Beer Is Your Friend | The Problem of “Pacific Ale”

[Published 25 May 2015]

A great read on the question of whether pacific ale is a style and how Thunder Road are, once again, in a trade mark argument.

If pacific ale is a style I don’t think I could easily describe it; what I am more interested in is one question – what on earth were Thunder Road thinking? No good was ever going to come of this, whether it’s intended or not, it feels like a poor attempt to hitch their wagon to the Stone & Wood Pacific Ale juggernaut. If you want your beer to be forever compared to one of the best in the country you had better be making a damn good beer first and foremost, surely far more important than debating who owes two words.
