Weekend Reading #46

For those lazy weekend mornings when you just want to stay in bed and catch up on a little reading – Weekend Reading is a weekly post with the articles I’ve enjoyed in the past seven days and hope that you will too.

Draft Magazine | Garage Project is the hottest brewery you’ve never heard of (till now)

Oh America, you’re in for a treat! Of course here is Australia we have known about Garage Project for a while and know they are beautifully crafted. This is a nice piece about Garage Project hitting the states.

Crafty Pint | Brew & A: Will from Feral Brewing

I always find interviews with brewers interesting but rarely do you find interviews with brewers that also include pubic hair, short shorts, cheese making and dry retching. If you have met Will this will probably make a lot of sense, if not, well click the link and met Will. Trust me, he’s delightful!

Crafty Pint | Five Years of Endeavour

Another great read from Crafty Pint. It has been a while since I have tried the beers from Endeavour but I did always like their approach to beer – beers that would change from year to year because the malts and hops used are only those from that year. This article is interesting in a couple of days – the impact a single word can have on a brand, in this case it’s “vintage” and the evolution of how contract brewing is viewed.

Beer Pulse | Heineken acquires 50% stake in Lagunitas Brewing, founder to continue leading company

This is probably not news but I thought I’d throw it in here anyway. As with every single transaction like this every craft beer drinker has their opinion, some stronger than others, but this is a topic for another blog post that I would like to post soon.

Thrillist | Want to Work in a Brewery? Here’s Advice from People Who Do

I have always figured that being a brewer was mostly emails, numbers and spreadsheets and a lot of cleaning. This confirms a lot of this.
