Attention Runners: Share Your Favorite Post-Marathon Beer for Today.com Article

UPDATE (4/15/13): The story is now posted over at Today.com.  Thanks to everyone who submitted their answers.  It was great to get such a big response, but due to word count limitations, I wasn’t able to fit everyone into the piece, and then it was further cut down when Today asked that a nutritionist chime […]

Miss Don’s Posts? Tell Donnybear All About!

You may have noticed Brother Don has pretty much disappeared from these parts of late. He’s been busy working to open up a beer shop and doing whatever else takes up the day of an unemployed fella (70% of my time would be spent on Magnum P.I. reruns). Anyway, at the prodding of John King, […]

The New Female-Friendly B&WB

UPDATE:  It turns out those “experts” we hired are the same people who came up with the idea for Bud Light Platinum – stoopid experts!  So we’ve fired them and reset the site to its former glory.  Sorry folks, there’ll be no Panty Hamsters here! ________________________ You may notice the blog looks a little different […]

FYI: Don’s not Dead

I just wanted to let all of you folks know that relief is on the way from the Jim-fest that’s been happening here lately.  Donnybear ™ has been swamped the past week or so with employment seeking and so forth, but should be back in the groove here soon. And that’s a good thing.  I […]

Help Make New Jersey a Better Place for Craft Brewers (and Craft Beer Drinkers)

Johnathan Moxey just alerted me to the fact that this is happening, which is kind of embarrassing, seeing as he’s from Missouri and lives in NYC, and I have lived in New Jersey for decades.  Anyway, my state is a crappy place to start a new brewery, and because of that, New Jersey has very […]

Our First Beer Post for The Today Show

I humble-bragged the other day that I have been invited to be a regular contributor to the The Today Show’s food blog.  My first post appeared this morning, a “beer brawl” between New England and New York in honor of the Super Bowl.  I’ll admit that this is certainly not the most original post idea, […]

Our 7 Most Significant Beer and Whiskey Stories of 2011

It’s been a pretty amazing year in these parts.  We’ve shined a light on the unfair treatment of a teacher, exposed a “Big Beer” troll trying to pull a fast one, and we even managed to break a news story or two. I’ve compiled a list of our top seven stories from the past year, […]

It’s Snowing on the Blog!

Those white specs you see drifting across the screen aren’t eye floaters or Don rubbing his dandruffy beard atop the logo, they are digital snow, courtesy of WordPress.  They give folks with WordPress-hosted blogs the option of turning on the snow when the holidays draw near.  We had it on at the tail end of […]

Comment Fight: How NOT to Defend Your Beer PR Stunt

We had quite a dust-up in the comments here yesterday, where a fella calling himself “Geez” questioned whether or not I had any facts to support my assertion that Natty Light’s recent “Beer in Space” viral video campaign was hatched by an advertising agency. Well I didn’t until he got involved! Here’s an excerpt from […]

Our 1000th Post and I Waste it on an Awesome Empire Strikes Back Cat GIF

. That’s right, this makes 1,000 posts here on B&WB.  Some have been great, many have been pretty good and few have even sent ripples across the Internet.  This post doesn’t fit into any of those categories.  Basically I saw this GIF and it made me want to pee my pants, so I figured what […]

Our First Product Prototype: The DonnyBear!

If my KISS lunchbox or my Star Wars Underoos taught me anything, it’s that the REAL money is in merchandising.  If people are fans of something, they’ll buy up all sorts of doodads to build a deeper connection to the object of their obsession and show the world that they have great taste. Cha-ching!! With […]

5 Ways to Get Women to Fall in Love with our Beer and Whiskey Blog

When it comes to gender, our readership is a little lopsided.  Of the 12,000 or so folks who came through the site over the past month, 68% of our were dudes and 32% were ladies.  This is a bit less balanced than other spirits-related blogs, which tend to be about 55% men to 45% women.  […]

We’re Alive and Well

Hi all, just a quick note to tell you Don and I are alive and well.  We’ve had some sad family business to attend to this week, and we’ve gathered in Milwaukee – the spiritual home of the Galligan clan – to see our dad off this mortal coil.  There’ll be a tribute to him […]
