Gainesville’s original craft brewery would usually throw a weekend bash to celebrate their anniversary. There would be special beers on tap, commemorative glassware, and faces new and old would come through the Wetlands (tasting room) to celebrate another trip around the sun. In 2021, though, that is not the case. Out of an abundance of caution during the COVID-19 pandemic, Swamp Head Brewery has decided to release their anniversary beers, and their nostalgia, in cans available in their drive-thru station.
Today, Thursday, December 17th, Cigar City Brewing took to the internet to allude to changes in the format of the Tampa brewery’s 11-years-strong beer festival celebrating the release of Hunahpu’s Imperial Stout.
Black Friday is rolling around once again, and 2020 is no different. For many beer enthusiasts, Black Friday is the day to forget that Anheuser-Busch InBev owns Goose Island Brewing as they release a few bottles of barrel-aged stout that draw attention away from Goose Island’s strategy the rest of the year – namely releasing forgettable beers on repeated BOGOs and working to take cooler and shelf space away from independent craft breweries.
Marker 48 Brewing recently accepted the delivery of a canning system that will enable it to restart the growth plans put on hold because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
