Das Ale Haus

Brewing and reviewing since 2012.

Friday 5@5 – October 11, 2013

Here’s this week’s news round up for the weekend in the 5 at 5. Cheers!

1) Untappd, the most used app on my phone, has released new core badges. Get to drinking!

2) An 11 year old won a competition through the National Center for Earth and Space Science Education by designing an experiment to brew beer in space. Astronauts will brew a batch in orbit and he’ll brew a batch down here. Not word how an 11 year old will compare notes, though.

3) A whole lot of breweries are slated to open in the Philly area soon. I’ve avoided beating the dead horse that is the “craft beer bubble,” but this is a prime example of it. Hopefully they all make it, but I have a feeling that won’t be the case.

4) This week in the government shutdown hurting craft beer: Heavy Seas (which is suddenly all over NJ) has a new labeling machine that requires a different size label. Because even a dimensional change requires TTB approval, they’ve got millions of dollars in equipment collecting dust.

5) NPR takes a look at how beer and food complement each other, with recipes included.

Have something for next week? Let me know!

Mid brew snack. He doesn't quite understand the concept of fetch. Pretty good birthday, thanks @morninqxstar...even if some of the purchases were accidental. 😁 Lazy pupper lounging on the job.
