Germany must be doing something right: four time winners of the World Cup and an economic and technological powerhouse. As a travel destination, however, Germany is often overlooked and underrated. With a range of possibilities from picturesque castles to culture-rich cities, Germany is an ideal year-round holiday destination.

Beer Store President Ted Moroz recently came out against deregulation, warning that "alcohol prices will increase if the provincial government deregulates the sale of booze". He added, "Drinkers should expect to pay an average of $10 more for a two-four if corner stores are allowed to sell suds".

The "beer economy" employs more than 163,000 people. In fact 1 out of every 100 jobs in Canada is in beer. A report out late last year suggests that 44 cents of every dollar spent on beer goes to the government in taxes ($5.8 billion), making buying beer almost a civic duty.

2014-02-14-sochibanner.jpg The Passport fridge sits inside the Sochi Canada House, which permits only people with a passport who know an athlete inside. The fridge only has a few empty specialty bottles inside. The kicker - there is actually no Molson Canadian beer in the Canada House whatsoever! It got stuck at the border.

Dimitri van Kampen is the chatty founder of Spearhead Brewery in Toronto. I sat down with Dimitri at The Beaver Cafe on Queen St. W. to discover how the lawyer-turned-entrepreneur makes his concept stand out in Ontario's highly tapped craft beer market.

When was the last time you saw a pregnant woman sipping a beer? If you are North American, the answer might be never. You might also be surprised to learn that in much of Europe, it's actually not unusual at all. Now, more and more women I know are choosing not to totally abstain from alcohol during their pregnancies. And everyone in their lives are completely losing their minds about it.

I can't believe I did it. I hit the heart button on a guy with KIDS in his profile picture. Not one, but TWO kids! How mature do I think I am? Still...(deep breath) he is attractive. And I am 34. I have to face the fact that guys in my age bracket might have offspring, whether it was on purpose, or they forgot to pull out.

How do you drink your beer? Do you swig it straight from the bottle or can? Do you have a favourite glass? Do you observe the somewhat eccentric and detailed minutiae of beer-glass-style heuristics? If I told you a new type of glass could make your beer taste better, would you believe me? You should.

My Tinder Bender Date #4: A Tinderella Story

I head to my date. I warn him I look like a dirtbag. Pink Jack Daniel's shirt, jeans and Toms. I'm wearing a padded bra, so boobs are not to scale. I notice he's getting texts from a phone number that doesn't have a contact name. They seem to be coming in quite rapidly. I call it out: "Haha! You're getting messages from another Tinder, aren't you?" He denies it. I'm not buying it.

While many of the BBQ beers from last week are well suited to a campfire, drawing on the smokey characters from the fire (especially if you are roasting hotdogs), I want to dig into a different style, Old Ales and Barleywines.

Summer Beer Guide: BBQ Beers

Chris Schryer

Stouts and porters, particularly higher alcohol ones, can be perfect beers for a long cold Canadian winter. However, when thinking about pairing beer and food, it would be hard to find a better beer to accompany rich smokey BBQ meats, than a roasty or smokey porter or stout.

Today we are going to cover a type of beer that is probably unfamiliar to many folks, sour ales, and specifically Belgian-style Saisons and German-style Berliner Weisse. For many, the thought of a beer being sour at all is a strange one.

Summer Beer Guide: Wheat Beer

One of the most obvious "summer" styles are wheat beers. These beers are generally bright, slightly tart or sour, quite refreshing, and generally weigh-in at 5 per cent or less. I've also got a BBQ recipe for Orange Glazed Pork Chops that includes a wheat beer.

In an age where The Big F (ah, that's Fun) is seemingly being siphoned out of sports by avarice and idiocy and egos, it's nice to hear the down-home story of the Hembry and Babbitt boys of Emerson, Iowa (population 430), young (and not-so-young) men determined to put The Big F back into sport.

Why Do Breasts Always Have to Sell Beer?

Chris Schryer

Using women's bodies to sell alcohol is probably the thing I hate most about the broader beer culture in the western world. Possibly it's because I have a daughter now, and I'm thinking about my actions as a man, particularly relating to how they relate to girls and young women who are growing up in a messed up world.

I was recently invited to attend a "new" spin on an old favourite -- a beer and cheese tasting, as opposed to a traditional wine and cheese party. I say "new" with qualifiers because of course both beer and wine have existed since the beginning of time.
