    They sold their own hops to other craft breweries (at cost=no profits) to keep them from shutting down. They also helped out again when a shortage of a specific kind of hops typically used in IPA's caused the same problem. I can put away some Sam Adams, and the fact that owner helps out other craft breweries is amazing. They also help coach microbreweries.

    Restores my faith in the human population a little, especially in these times of money-grabbing by big companies and organizations.

    American craft beer. Tastes better than light beer.
    Not if you're American. Which I assume you are.

    Going to look those up. I've had a lot if different types of beer, but not those. We have a handful of specialty liquor stores in the area, maybe they'll have them.
