THE PIPELINE NO ONE PROTESTS
Belgians in the town of Bruges not only supported but cheered on the construction of a $45-million pipeline that snakes from its city centre to a facility on the outskirts of town. What flows through this pipeline? Beer!
De Halve Maan Brewery came up with this ingenious plan so it could keep its operations in its historic location and expand its bottling capacity. Check out the video to learn more.
NEW KIDS ON THE HOP
We’d like to extend a warm welcome to the local beer scene to Susan Wallwork and Pierre Doucette of The Humble Beginnings Brewing Co. The nanobrewery in Ingleside, ON plans to open to the public this spring with their Out and About Pale Ale and Frick and Frack IPA. Seasonal and rotational brews are also planned.

BADASS BREWERY OF THE YEAR
Scotland’s BrewDog Brewery has been in the headlines a lot lately. They’re launching the world’s first crowdfunded craft beer hotel. The Doghouse, is planned in Columbus, Ohio will feature a sour-beer-making facility and accommodations with amenities like IPA-filled hot tubs, showers stocked with a mini beer bar and spa that offers malted barley massages. If you back the project—they’ve already surpassed their original target on Indiegogo—you get some special perks.
While on the subject of perks and BrewDog, did you know this company grants Pawternity to its employees? You heard that right. They give new dog owners a week of paid leave to spend with their new puppies.
GREEN ON THE SCENE
Eat, drink and dance like the Irish at Schnitzel’s European Flavours on March 17th. On the menu for St. Paddy’s Day: green beer, Guinness, Irish stew, corned beef rolls and the Irish and Celtic sounds of Jesse Ferguson.
