Fall 2019, Issue 44

Our Fall 2019, Issue 44 features all the brew that’s fit to drink with a variety of stories on myriad topics that should wet your whistle, starting with Jessica Zimmer covering The World’s Strongest Beers.

Then, Kristen Kuchar explores the importance of facial hair to the brewing community with Big Beards in Beer, which features multiple interviews with some of the men behind the best beards in the brewing business.

Following that is the next entry in our series of “Top Places to Drink” in multiple landmark locations. In this issue, Chris Guest wrote about his recent trip to London, England – which led to a plethora of tremendous places to imbibe a brew.

After that, Owen Ogletree gives readers An Introduction to Mead, while Pat Evans sits down with 3 Impactful Beer Social Media Influencers to discuss what they do and how it affects the industry.

Then, Jonathan Ingram explores the possibility of another craft beer bubble forming under our very noses, while Jim Dykstra offers up the Editor’s Pick: European Beer Tour Companies.

Lastly, David Nilsen closes us out with a brewery tour of Urban Artifact, which is housed in the former St. Aloysius Catholic Church – a striking location that serves as a venerable spot to enjoy a finely crafted ale.
