  BIG NEWS IN BREWS


The Budweiser brewery, with its two enormous windmills producing some 30 percent of the brewery’s energy needs, is a familiar sight to anyone traveling west of Fairfield, California, a town best known as the home of Travis Air Force Base and the Budweiser plant, on Highway I-80 near the truck scales.

BA INTRODUCES THE INDEPENDENT CRAFT BREWER SEAL


The small brewing industry has grown from a few tiny breweries with cobbled-together equipment to thousands of breweries in every state in the union with sophisticated equipment, experienced brewers and knowledgeable patrons demanding the very best the brewer can produce.

BILLIONAIRE VIJAY MALLYA UNDER SIEGE

The company that started in 1983 as California’s first brewpub got into financial difficulties in the mid-nineties after an ambitious but underfunded expansion by the original founders and was “rescued” by Mallya with an investment and a bridge loan holding the brewery as collateral.
