<=== Arcadia Hopmouth label. Sam Adams Doublebock label. They also plan an Imperial White and Imperial Stout ===> In a previous post we mentioned the Brits who have crawled to 14,000 pubs. The CAMRA paper, What’s Brewing, has an article about Stuart Ashby who has visited 17,015 pubs since 1984. "Not bad for someone who doesn’t drive and has to rely on public transport". "Burger King is opening a restaurant in Miami Beach that will serve beer along with burgers and fries, the chain’s first U.S. location with alcohol." article Happy meal? Whopper, fries, and a Bud. $7.99. One coming in NYC also. And maybe Orlando.
