Beer News:

Anheuser-Bush has a lot to celebrate lately:

The birth of Shakira on May 5, 2006 - a beautiful chestnut Clydesdale with four white hooves, a white streak down her nose, and a patch of white on her belly.  She was born at Warm-Springs Ranch in Menefee, California, weighing in at 125 pounds.  The tall girl is full of energy, jumping and prancing at her summer home at Anheuser-Busch in Fort Collins, Colorado, USA.

The purchase of Rolling Rock in Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - A-B bought the label and recipe from beer giant InBev for a reported $82 million, and has plans to move brewing operations to Newark, New Jersey.  Locals in
Latrobe are appealing to their new owners to consider keeping Rolling Rock in its place of birth.

Craft Brew of the Week Award:

Dominion Pale Ale - Old Dominion Brewing Company, Ashburn, Virginia, USA
Style - American Pale Ale

A glistening, clear, golden body emanates within a layer of copper sheen, not unlike a glowing moon on the horizon.  Frothy, white suds sit atop this glimmer, fading slowly, yet leaving dots and webs of lace on the glass.  The nose is filled with the light aroma of biscuits and yeast, somewhat sweet and toffee-like - then tempered with floral and herbal hops.

In the mouth, the malt backbone comes alive.  Sweet caramel rises onto the platform, dressed with toffee.  A floral, grassy hop bitterness tames the wild tiger, and serves as a delicate balance.

Highly drinkable, crisp, clean, and satisfying!
