VinePair

If there’s one guiding law IPA devotees are taught at the beginning of their craft beer journey, it’s to drink their hazies fresh. For many, checking the canned-on dates on the bottom of IPAs is standard practice, and some are quick to pass up an otherwise automatic purchase if it’s more than a few weeks old. But one thing these breweries haven’t defined is what “fresh” really means.

Review: Burnt Church Bluffton Whiskey

Drinkhacker

The road of the American craft whiskey movement was paved by craft beer. The spirit of craft beer and whiskey are similar, but in their respective infancies, they were not exactly equal. Craft beer was a response to a rather bland and homogenous beer industry. Craft beer needed to exist because “big beer” was uninspiring. Craft whiskey was born of the desire to drink local and innovate, but “big whiskey” was far from bland or uninspiring.
