MORRISVILLE, Vt. -- Forget David and Goliath. This fight's between Matt and Monster.
The maker of Monster energy drinks has taken aim at a Vermont brewery that sells a beer called "The Vermonster," ordering it to stop selling, advertising and promoting the craft brew because it could confuse consumers.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The down economy has led to an upswing in beer consumption, but many in Middle Tennessee are not spending at the local bar. They are making their own.
If you’re up for two full days of craft beer, culinary delights and live music with just the right balance of nostalgia and vogue, then Ace Hotel’s annual Craft Beer Weekend is for you. The youthful hotel on the eastern leg of Palm Canyon Drive was the perfect spot for the hipster chic celebration of craft beer.
Most beer festivals that are hosted at fairgrounds, parking lots or large venues may have capacity for large quantities of beer. But the hotel’s Friday evening’s menu and Saturday BBQ and beer tastings were a slightly smaller celebration, by the pool, Palm Springs style. The sun, the view, the water and the California style beers are, in fact, their ace in the hole.

Awards and medals for brewing and dining excellence adorn Babe’s Bar-B-Que and Brewhouse like golf courses adorn Palm Springs. And the smell of bbq hits you like the blues - a comfortable, yet uninhibited, tantalizing embrace.
Decades ago, Don Callender started a Southern California chain of American style restaurants that was known for its pies, fully stocked saloon and salad bar. As the years passed and the restaurant chain was sold and merged with other restaurants, Don had a slightly different vision of BBQ and beer.
