The arrogant bastards over at Stone Brewing Co. are apparently looking into opening a brewery over in Europe. While the idea is still a bit green and definitely not solidified, this is awesome for a two reasons. First, it opens up American craft beer to the global community (and thus starts creating the global craft beer community). Also, it is an obvious solution to the terrible environmental impact of shipping beer ingredients from Europe to the States just to ship the beer back to Europe. I can’t wait to see where this one goes.
