26 Feb

“The GROWLER City Bike was created with the design lover, recreational urban rider, and local pub in mind. Industrial designer Joey Ruiter, Founder and design lead of jruiter + studio, has a soft spot for people who opt to cycle instead of drive. Riders have needs too, and one of those needs is transporting their beverages.” – KNSTRCT

TimeOut has an interesting article on beer infused foods. Personally we prefer our beer cold, sitting in glass with a nice blonde head. You know what else we prefer? Our feature in Time Out. Read excerpts from both articles after the jump.

“Nanobrewing, simply put, is the bridge between homebrewing and running a full-scale production brewery — one where forklifts and 401(k)’s are involved.
