    1. The brewery issued the voluntary recall after three bottles of the brew exploded, WTVR reports. No injuries or formal complaints have reportedly been filed in connection with the beer, however.While the bottles may be at risk, the beer itself is apparently safe to drink. The problem appears to stem completely from the continued fermentation causing pressure to build up inside the bottle.

    2. A Wisconsin brewery recalled one of their beers because it was “at risk for explosion.”The brewery took to social media to announce that anyone with bottles of the beer should either “refrigerate or carefully dispose of them.” Apparently, one of the ingredients used in the drink causes pressure to continue to build up in the bottle.

    1. While our definition of a standard beer has been 5% ABV, a 2014 study by consumer research group Mintel found that the average craft beer is 5.9% ABV

      This is an important difference. I hadn't thought about it this way.

    1. My friends here who started a micro-brewery tell stories that when they were starting, the other micro-breweries in the region did not seem them as a threat/competition, and in fact, offered advice, equipment, supplies. The people who do this stuff see it as a net gain for everyone if someone can help raise the regional interest in craft beer; if everyone grows more customers, everyone wins. It’s not a tech startup mentality.

      Craft beer is a fascinating world, partly because of this approach to sharing. Much of the so-called “Craft Beer Revolution” happened through homebrewers who were sharing tips and recipes online (not to mention ingredients and samples offline). The idea, in many an indie/craft scene, is that the out-group is the Mainstream. Very similar story among owners of Third Wave cafés. Of course, there are differences. But still… When you have a “common enemy” (Anheuser-Busch, Starbucks, McGraw-Hill…), it’s much easier to grow together.
