Suds: December 19

I recently visited a pub in St. Paul this weekend that will remain nameless and ordered a Finnegans Irish Amber. When the waitress came back I felt the sting of disappointment in seeing my Irish Amber in a clear plastic cup. At first, I checked myself for exhibiting an acute case of beer snobbery, but upon further thought I concluded that this was a serious and valid misgiving shared by a fellow beer drinker at the table. Beer, especially craft beer, needs a glass home. I stumbled across this article of different brewers contemplating craft beer in plastic cups.

A beer with a little humor and lot of heart.
