The CAN'd Aid Foundation, known for "doing good 'cause we CAN" is proud to announce its 2016 do-goodery impacts. CAN'd Aid, a nonprofit formed by Dale Katechis, the soul founder of Oskar Blues Brewery, is working hard to make a difference in communities throughout the US. In 2016, the organization donated a total of $340,000 dollars, built & donated more than 500 bikes to underprivileged children, put 100 instruments in budding musician's hands and logged more than 2,500 volunteer hours.

A week and one day after the NCAA basketball tournament crowned its champion, we are happy to crown our champion of brewers. If you have been following along, we started with a field of 32 brewers to be rated in the Beerup Bracket Tournament. As we progressed through the rounds, votes poured in via hashtag voting as well as online voting. There were plenty of surprises, upsets and blowouts en route to arriving at our Final Four Brewers. The final survivors over the three rounds of voting were Lagunitas out of the West, Victory Brewing from the Northeast, Founders representing the Midwest, and Dogfish Head from the South rounding out the top 4 brewers.
After a wild weekend of basketball, beer festivals, and beer ratings, the people have spoken. Round one of our Beer Up Bracket featured a number of close contests, some blow outs and a few NCAA March Madness style upsets. Votes poured in via our online voting form as well as through the #beerupbracket hashtag on Twitter. This contest not only allowed voters the chance to cast a vote for their favorite brewery, but also put their money where their mouth was by checking in beers to cast votes. So with no further ado, here are our results.
Beer Up On The Presidential Campaign Trail

It's a new year and it's time to class things up at bumwinebob.com a bit! As a special treat for all you readers we are jumping back on the craft beer train once again! I am going to be joined by the Beer Up Blog on this Sunday's edition of Bumming with Bobcat, so I wanted to get one of their picks for a beer of the week for our readers to enjoy. He gave me a few of his top choices at the moment, and after doing some searching I was finally able to get my hands on one of his top picks.
Sometimes I wonder if the things that bother me make me sound more like a crotchety old man (stay off my lawn!) or a crazed lunatic. Talking to a friend the other day though I did not get the usual eye roll or ribbing that I get when I bring up my myriad of first world problems, in fact he agreed with me. This epidemic is not one that I can can pin on one particular brewer as it seems they are all guilty. What I am talking about is sampler or variety packs. Those mixed twelve packs that typically feature a seasonal assortment of beers. The concept is great but the way they put them together is what confounds me.
