One of the most important aspects of the beer distribution business is operations. Receiving, storing, and delivering our portfolio of products across our territory is no small task. And at the center of all this is our team of drivers and their helpers.
Starting as early as 5:00 a.m., drivers are out on the roads working tirelessly and oftentimes amidst adverse conditions to make sure beer gets delivered safely and accurately. Their job is hard — flat out.
So for National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, I shadowed one of our veteran drivers to get a small glimpse into his job. Micah has been driving for beverage companies for over twenty years — fifteen of those in the beer industry. He’s hardworking, loves Stella Artois, and is completely genuine. To quote one store owner I met, “He’s one of the best.”
Summer beer drinking season is here and our training and education manager, Chris, is ready to whip you into shape. Watch the video below and be sure to find one of these fine beverages near you using our Beer Finder.
While the majority of beers you’ll encounter are carbonated with carbon dioxide, some are carbonated with nitrogen gas, or nitro for short. Nitrogen gas creates smaller bubbles than CO2, imparting a smooth, creamy mouthfeel in beers like Guinness Draught, perhaps the most well-known nitro beer in the world.
American craft breweries have since adopted the nitro technology Guinness invented back in 1959, incorporating their own creativity in the beers. 3 Sheeps Brewing from Sheboygan, WI was one of the first American craft breweries to successfully bottle a full line of nitro beers, led by their delicious Cashmere Hammer Nitro Stout.
And while nitro beers are most commonly associated with stouts, Founders Brewing adds nitrogen to Rubaeus, their raspberry ale, making for delightful treat — almost like drinking liquid jam. Our Training and Education Manager, Chris Kolodziej, shares his thoughts on nitro beers in our next video below.
