A War Eagle's Flight Fights the Light
If you've never heard of Dale Katechis (Auburn U.--'92), it's not really your fault. After all, a guy who got his start in beer from a homebrew kit and who once brewed beer in his bathtub doesn't seem likely to catch the attention of the beer cognoscenti.
At least, that is, until they taste his beer--and that you may have very well done. If you've ever had the outstanding Oskar Blues Dale's Pale Ale, you have had the "bathtub" beer Katechis brewed. And if you've had it, you know it comes in cans. Read this story about Katechis and learn why more and more brewers (including Jim Koch of Sam Adams) are adopting the can over the bottle.
And while you're reading, check out the analogy he makes for fine wine in corked bottles or screw caps. Maybe the boxed stuff I buy for my wino-friends is better after all?
