Funk Factory sold a few bottles today

Postby thebookpolice » Thu Oct 15, 2015 2:55 pm

In the spirit of Three Floyds' Dark Lord Day tickets, or Side Project's 300-bottle runs of wild-fermented fruited ales, Madison's own Funk Factory sold (with brewing partner O'so) approximately 1,800 bottles of beer in essentially 90 seconds today. These were 750mL bottles, priced at $21-24 each after Brown Paper Tickets transaction fees. No small feat. I've got a little coverage on my site, if you're interested.

Speaking of beer...some advice from everyone's favorite, the food babe.

http://diet-sage.com/health-news/watch- ... ts-in-beer

"many brands, including Corona, Budweiser, Michelob, Guinness, Coors, Pabst and others contain ingredients like GMO corn, caramel coloring, other food colors including Red 40 and Yellow 5, high fructose corn syrup, GMO rice, propylene glycol (found in anti-freeze), monosodium glutamate (MSG), natural flavors (which really aren’t that “natural”) and even an ingredient that comes from a fish’s air bladder....

According to some research and contacts made by the Food Babe, Sierra Nevada, Heineken and Amstel Light are mainstream beers that do not use GMO grains, artificial ingredients, preservatives or stabilizers in their beverages.

German beers are ones that may have higher quality standards. The Germans have a beer purity law called “Reinheitsgebot”. This law means that all German beers may only be produced with a core ingredient list of water, hops, malted barley or wheat and yeast. Be aware, however, that German beers made in the United States may not necessarily follow this purity standard."

Also, many craft brewers offer different styles that also follow Reinheitsgebot. It doesn't necessarily have to be a "German-style" beer to follow the purity laws. You can't usually tell from looking at the label either, unless the brewer chooses to advertise that aspect of the beer.
