Dogfish Head – Clarification from Sam on whether Dogfish Faithfull Ale is a rebrand of Au Currant – ” Faithfull uses a different Yeast , different hops, and ten additions of currants as opposed to the two editions for au currant. A very different beer. It was designed around the bands on stage penchant for “fruity northwest pinots and a shit ton of Mexican lager”. We basically brewed it to combine both those worlds.”

Heretic Brewing – From Jamil on Heretic’s Facebook Page – “Bottling Shallow Grave Porter on Tuesday 12/6. It has this great, rich chocolate character from the Thomas Fawcett malts, without being overly sweet. I’m really very happy with how this beer turned out. I think it is one of the best porters I’ve ever tasted. I wouldn’t change a thing. -JZ”
