San Diego Beer Week

San Diego Beer Week is in full swing.  This extravaganza gains strength every year.  Here are a few quick resources:

West Coaster - summaries and links to summaries

SDBW - the official website of San Diego Beer Week, with an event calendar here.

Brandon Hernandez's breakdown of various events (via West Coaster) are here (San Diego Magazine), here (Reader, scroll down for a day-by-day summary) and here (Pacific San Diego magazine pages 60 - 63).

I'm not sure what events I will hit, but I usually make one or two.  Tonight's release party at Green Flash Brewing where it presents its 10th Anniversary Flanders Drive, a sour red ale, looks like an interesting event.  I was told yesterday that Flanders Drive is very limited and the party tonight is the only time this beer will be available.

AB InBev In BusinessWeek

Here is a long article on AB InBev in BusinessWeek.  I didn't read the whole thing, but the first few paragraphs are hilarious.  It tells the outrage of a Beck's drinker that realized the US version of Beck's is no longer brewed in Germany.  Instead of bitching, why didn't the guy look for a craft beer pilsner?  He would have been kicking himself for not searching out craft beer alternatives sooner.
