Hot Links & Cold Ones 5.2

  • Austin 360 takes a first look at Lazarus Brewing, going in on Austin’s rapidly expanding east side (and their Old World brewing approach)
  • Jester King Brewery is at the collaboration game again, this time partnering with Tired Hands Brewing to produce Cloudfeeder, a farmhouse ale brewed with grapefruit, limes and Pennsylvania honey & dry hopped, for a brew that’s “a little more bitter than sour”
  • As if the Broadway hit “Hamilton” wasn’t ubiquitous enough, the musical has apparently inspired a new beer, Rise Up Rye
  • Cinco De Mayo goes down in a few days, and The Full Pint makes some recs as to some craft lagers you might consider
  • How much have you really thought about draft beer tap handles? The folks at Vinepair have mused about them quite a bit (and doesn’t it seem like the wine folks speak often of craft beer these days?)
