How do you turn a naked beer slide into a flavor?
Luke 6:45   ...A good man produces goodness from the good in his heart; an evil man produces evil out of his store of evil.   Each man speaks from his heart's abundance...

It is better to be fearless and cheerful than cheerless and fearful.

MKE Brewing is no more. A new brewery will be taking over the 9th street facility.

Two WI craft OGs gone this year.

Over expansion?

And the state shrugs.  Average brewer and the only time I went to their place was to do the 'open house' portion.

Agree, never had anything exciting or interesting. Very middle of the road.

Totally agree.

Looks like they sold to Pilot Project Brewing? Seems like a massive space for a small brewery incubator.

One of our bigger breweries, Sycamore Brewing, is back again with new sex-themed labels for its Xmas ale.

https://www.charlotteobserver.com/news/business/whats-in-store/article268931602.html?ac_cid=DM728285&ac_bid=1426226778

Sycamore Brewing’s risqué Christmas ale labels are a bit subtler this year, but still might land them on some people’s naughty list.

Over the past three years, the cans have been wrapped in labels with sex toys in the shape of snowflakes, gingerbread men in bondage and reindeer in sexual positions. The annual holiday release has sparked controversy, resulting in the cans being pulled in 2019 because of frisky reindeer, a design that the state liquor board had not approved at the time.

This year, the Charlotte brewery rolled out two approved designs where you have to look closely to see elves wrapping sex toys tagged for mom and dad, and the other, elves wearing sweaters with images of past labels.

And now the US distributed Red Stripe is brewed in LaCrosse, at the old Old Style brewery.

Brewing was moved back to Kingston in 2016 after Diageo became owners

Wiki has part of the answer if you kept reading. If you buy any the label states made in Kingston. It also tastes better since that move. The RS made in the US tasted like crap.
Quote
In 2012, Diageo moved production of the U.S. supply of Red Stripe from Jamaica to the U.S.; The supply is produced by City Brewing Co. in La Crosse, Wisconsin and the Latrobe Brewing Company in Latrobe, Pennsylvania, which was the main brewery for Rolling Rock for over 60 years. Desnoes & Geddes will still make Red Stripe for Jamaica, Brazil, Canada and Europe.[7]

On 7 September 2016 the company celebrated the shipment of the first container of Red Stripe to be exported to the United States from Jamaica in 4 years. The company says this historic move is core to the company's mission of re-establishing Jamaica as the global hub for the Jamaican brand.

lager vs. ale?

I brewed a clone of Fuller's ESB  and Vintage ale many times (both were a favorite) and several marzen recipes but never thought there was any similarity in the styles

What?  Those styles are completely different.

My bad, didn't see Billy said so.
