“A Better Brew: The rise of extreme beer.”

That’s the title and subhead of  an absolutely wonderful story in the current New Yorker, out today, about Sam Calagione and extreme beer.

Writer Burkhard Bilger doesa great job of capturing the world of Dogfish Head and its charismatic founder. I’d call it a Must Read.

Side Note: I came to the conclusion a couple of years ago that the New Yorker would be an ideal venue for a craft beer story in a mainstream market and still have in my files the notes I was gathering to approach them about a front-of-the-book “Talk of the Town” piece on Michael Jackson during one of his annual March visits to New York, Philadelphia and Washington.  Sadly, of course, all that became moot on August 30, 2007.
