Wait...Who owns that brewery?

Phil Foleen


After a good conversation with a friend of mine about the wonders and wiles of the MolsonCoors company vs the Belgian Juggernaut InBev, I stumbled across this neat little Infographic on a sweet little website called  It was put together by Philip H Howard  at Michigan State University and is a really great way to show the various relationships of some of the top over-arching beer conglomerates, and who they own in the craft beer world.

Granted it's not the most comprehensive guide to the craft beer world, but I would be willing to bet there's at least one ownership connection that might surprise you.  Take a look and let us know which one was a shock!

Show me the beer people!

S-Biner Ahhh | Uncrate

Our friends over at have found another useful little Beer-Tool: The S-Biner Ahhh from Niteize.

Sure you've got your key chain bottle opener from you favorite Brewery/Bar/Hello Kitty Convention, but what do you do when you don't want to bring any keys with you?  The S-Biner Ahhh to the rescue!

With its "S" curve design it'll clip and carry anything you want to any belt loop, back pack or fridge magnet  you want.  The best part is both sides are openers so you never have to worry about picking it up backwards.

Click here for the link and grab one for $4, that's a pretty good price if you ask us.
