"...It is the new Environmental Pale Ale from the Bitter End, brainchild of Tim Schwartz, award-winning brewer, and Richard Heinichen, purveyor of all things rainwater. They can't claim any medicinal powers for the beer, but I watched them make it, and I can attest they used only the finest natural ingredients organic hops and barley along with rainwater collected near Dripping Springs, Texas..."
"...Middleton told me he just moved here from San Diego, where he lived in the middle of a golden triangle formed by the top-flight brewing operations of Stone, Green Flash, and Pizza Port. Trips to Belgium influenced him and his wife Kim greatly, so his brews offer a mix of the spiced beers of that nation and the hops bombs of California...."

"...Starring: Jerry O'Connell, Anthony Anderson, Estella Warren, Christopher Walken, Michael Shannon, Marton Csokas and David Ngoombujarra. While on a panel at the 2002 Austin Film Festival, Kangaroo Jack co-writer Scott Rosenberg recounted with glee how he pitched the idea of Jack -- two guys with $50,000 in the pocket of a jacket put the jacket on a kangaroo; kangaroo hops off with jacket and cash -- he received the biggest advance for an idea ever..."

"...Shaye returns as parapsychologist Elise Rainier, aided and abetted by her comic-relief aides-de-campy Specs (Whannell) and Tucker (Sampson), but since the character was killed off in the first film, The Last Key time-hops from young Elise’s (Kolker) spooky childhood growing up beside a penitentiary death house in 1950s New Mexico to 2010 (the latter being directly prior to the events in Insidious). Her new psychic rescue mission involves both her own soul and possibly that of one Ted Garza (Acevedo), the new owner of her disquieting former home..."
"...She is a 70-year-old widow who lives with her henpecking mother upstairs from the financially faltering restaurant she runs. When she gets the news that her affair with a married man has ended due to him running off with a 25-year-old, she snaps, hops into her gold Mercedes for a pack of cigarettes, and ends up flooring it on a cross-country odyssey...."

"...Christ has an eye for strong personalities, including the charismatic Joe Lewis of Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears; a camera crew shadows him as he makes deliveries for Quality Seafood. Appropriately, great care has been taken with the sound design, but even more striking is Robert Garza’s cinematography, especially as his camera hops a ride on Downtown’s many construction cranes to document a dazzling city in transition, be it for better or worse..."
"...In this adaptation of Sara Gruen's book-club favorite Water for Elephants, Twilight heartthrob Pattinson stretches to play a character with a pulse – but just barely. Orphaned in the film's opening minutes and suddenly cash-poor in 1930s New York, Pattinson's Jacob hops a train in the dead of night only to discover he's caught a ride with a traveling circus..."
"...Starring: Scoot McNairy, Kierstin Cunnington, Matt Pulliam and Matt Bearden. The humble brewski, a simple blend of water, toasted grain, and hops that enthusiasts chug by the half-dozen, assumes grail-like import for bored 19-year-olds James and Russell in Alex Holdridge's engaging, sneakily poignant comedy..."
"...Starring: Joseph Mazzello, Richard Gilliland, Corrine Bohrer, Joey Simmrin, Ashlee Levitch and Lauren Eckstrom. Joseph Mazzello, an uncommonly good young actor (Jurassic Park, The River Wild), stars in this pre-adolescent male sci-fi fantasy about a seventh-grader who hops inside a big robotic Cybersuit and saves the planet from intergalactic aggressors called the Broodwarriors..."
"...That's all we have going on in Men in Black's mighty slim storyline, but it works, up to a point. Sonnenfeld has created a series of alien gags that work 90% of the time; strung together like washing on a backyard clothesline, the film hops from joke to joke, enormously fueled by the obvious comedic synergy between its two leads..."
"...The Tune's focal point, Del, is a love-struck would-be songwriter who suddenly finds himself in the awkward position of having to come up with a bona fide smash hit within 47 minutes, or else (his lyrics so far -- “My love for you is like a gob of goo...a cow that goes `moo'...a brand new shoe...” -- just don't seem to cut it). Reeling under the pressure and desperate to win the heart of Didi, his true love, our overworked hero hops in his car and drives off in search of inspiration..."
"...Hugo spends his time socializing with his old titled school chums who spend their time drinking and giving each other piggyback rides around the room.

"..."Traditionally hops were used to balance the sweetness of malt in beer," says hop wizard Joe Mohrfeld, director of brewing at Pinthouse Pizza and leader of inarguably the best IPA program in Texas. "But it was only about 15 years ago in the States we started pushing the boundaries of what hops could really do with bittering..."
"...Established by the Brewers Association and celebrated throughout the country, ACBW commemorates the art and tradition of American craft beer. True to form, Hops & Grain has laid plans to fully embrace the festive week with six days of beer drinking and beer education..."
"...A perfect pale ale is one that can satisfy the hop heads, but remains sensible enough for the casual weekday drinker. Originally introduced as Real Ale's 16th Anniversary beer, Four Squared is an incredibly controlled beer; weighty but sessionable, cleverly balanced between the allied coalition of hops and malts, but ultimately memorable because of the dry-hopped addition of aromatic hops during the fermentation cycle..."
"...Save the Ales With the gradual repeal of state temperance laws from the Prohibition Era, home brewing became a legal way to circumvent the Pilsner monopoly. The brewing process essentially involves extracting sugars from a treated grain, usually barley malt, with hot water; seasoning the resulting solution, or the wort, with hops; and then adding yeast to the wort to convert the grain's sugars into alcohol and carbon dioxide -- a process known as fermentation..."
"...Hops & Grain Greenhouse IPA After brewing over 18 different versions of an IPA over the past two years, Hops & Grain Brewery has released its Greenhouse IPA. Starting this week, Hops & Grain loyalists will be able to pick up the canned IPA in select retail stores..."

"...In fact, with irony as rich as the Crown, it is Britain who is now looking back to the States and its talented brewhouses for inspiration on how to brew a noteworthy IPA. And while some of America's more aggressive IPAs require a sodium borate rinse to eliminate the piney residue from one's coated gullet, the latest trend has brewers homing in on the delicate nuance of their luminary performers: hops...."

"...Craft beer is this way – aluminum billboards packaged into small showpieces of Futura Bold typeface telling you about hops and honesty and the geographic coordinates of the farm where their spent grain is sent to help foster seeing-eye ponies.

"...With nearly 50 Central Texas production breweries and brewpubs in various stages of operation, the general drinking public in Austin has been merrily plunking down the biscuits of financial posterity in order to sustain the craft beer industry for over two decades. When first-rate, Austin-area legacy acts like Live Oak, Independence, and Real Ale aren't growing their workshops to elasticize the hems on their ever-expanding market potential, new brewhouses with clever styles and polished taprooms like Blue Owl, Last Stand, and 4th Tap are dispelling the old canard that Austin's craft beer market is too saturated...."

"...Pilsn had been a brewing center since 1295, and, as in many of the German cities, the bottom-fermenting technique used to make lager-style beers had been known there for years before the creation of the beer that takes the town's name. But in the mid-1800s, brewers at the brewery now known as Pilsner Urquell combined technological advances in bottom fermentation with Bohemia's unique Saaz style of hops, a special type of malt from the neighboring province of Moravia, and the brewery's incredibly soft water to produce the world's first golden lager...."
