Hangover Thursday: This Just In

It’s Hangover Thursday, how’s your head?  I had a few bottles of Bass on Tuesday night, but I was so exhausted last night I couldn’t even look at a beer.  I know that’s a horrifying thought my internet friends but it really happened.  Regardless I came across some random beer news that I wanted to share.

One of the stranger stories I’ve seen in a while, a Vietnamese gang was counterfeiting Heineken and Tiger beer.  The gang was taking Heineken and Tiger and then mixing them with other, cheaper beer.  Once they had this new beer mixture they would sell it to restaurants in Ho Chi Minh City.  It was reported that they were selling less than 50 crates a day, but that still sounds like a lot of beer to me.

Dogfish Head is making it’s return to Tennessee, Indiana, Wisconsin, and Rhode Island.  Back in 2011 the brewery cut back it’s distribution areas to keep up with the demand.  Now they’ve managed to expand their brewery enough to start shipping to those states again.  At the moment they are still looking for regional sales managers and things like that.  Expect Dogfish Head in those areas by the end of the year!
