Might a Fat Tire be in the cards for the East Coast? I’m hoping that this note about New Belgium’s building expansion means a distribution expansion is to follow.
Looks like our own Cambridge Brewing Company brought home the bronze from the first annual Radical Beer Open. Their Cerise Cassée (“Broken Cherry”) took third place in the Category II (5.1 – 7.5%). The article says that the brewing process “begins with a 100% sour mash for three days. After primary fermentation, brewer Will Meyers adds 300 pounds of sour cherries and ignites a second fermentation with a Belgian abbey ale yeast. A third fermentation with several strains of Brettanomyces lasts nine months in French oak Pinot Noir barrels.” Sounds like it’ll be fantastic. Going to have to check that one out.
Looks like we may have to put the institution of Fitzmas as a national holiday on hold: Leak Counsel Won’t Charge Rove, Lawyer Announces. The thing about this, after Rove’s five grand jury appearances, is that I’m not sure it changes anyone’s mind about his innocence or guilt; it only shows that Pat Fitzgerald couldn’t prove his involvement sufficiently to send him to trial.
