Consider this from Pyramid, which I believe is a first-rate mainstream company:
– Pyramid Apricot Weizen beer is the #1 fruit beer in the country and continues to grow at a faster rate than others. Growth rate for 2006 was 32%.
– Pyramid’s ThunderHead India Pale Ale (IPA) is the fastest growing IPA in the nation with 53.6% growth rate.
Also in the news: City Beer Store (1168 Folsom St., San Francisco) held a pre-Oscar night event tonight (Thursday, Feb. 22). The trick is to pair beers with Academy Award-nominated films. Here’s City Beer proprietor Craig Wathen’s pairings:
The Departed: Speakeasy Godfather
Babel: Russian River Supplication
Queen: Old Speckled Hen English Ale
Little Miss Sunshine: Hoppy Face Amber Ale
Letters From Iwo Jima: Hitachino Nest
Not too bad.
