This was definitely the week for 2013 reviews, and Parade magazine gave what they felt were the weirdest beer stories of 2013. In Oregon, a former biochemist opens a brewpub with a science theme. In Egypt, archaeologists open the tomb of the brewer to Amenhotep III. The history of brewing is documented at San Diego’s Museum of Man. When Starbucks sent a cease and desist letter to a small brewpub (Missouri’s Exit 6 Brewery), they probably didn’t expect this funny response. The beer world is clogged with beer review blogs, but I’ll bet few are as cranky as the one written by this guy, who doesn’t like Kickstarter-funded brewing projects. And finally, Sierra Nevada released a time-lapse video of the fermentation of 2013’s Bigfoot Barleywine, to the strains of “In the Hall of the Mountain King,” by Edvard Grieg.
