Farewell to 2020 – Marin Brewing Company: Albion Amber Ale

10,000 Birds

When you’re in this quiet part of California, the best meal you can treat yourself to involves a short drive up the Pacific Coast Highway, which snakes along Tomales Bay to Marshall, where the Hog Island Oyster Company sells fresh oysters by the dozen from their barebones wholesale store.

Bolton Landing Brewing Company: Paradise Bay IPA

10,000 Birds

Luckily, beer can help us travel vicariously no matter how hopelessly we’re stuck at home, and for me at least, this week’s featured is a reminder of summers past: Paradise Bay IPA, the flagship IPA from the Bolton Landing Brewing Company. Bolton Landing Brewing Company: Paradise Bay IPA.

Aslin Beer Company/Two Roads Brewing Company: Under the Wire

10,000 Birds

Woodpeckers are especially fond of wooden utility poles, both for nesting and feeding, and the damage they and other birds cause to utility infrastructure is a serious problem for telephone and electricity companies. It’s this image that serves as the inspiration for this week’s beer, a New England-style India pale ale made in collaboration between the Aslin Beer Company of Herndon, Virginia and Two Roads Brewing Company of Stratford, Connecticut called Under the Wire.

Pelican Brewing Company: Brut India Pale Ale

10,000 Birds

One of these is Pelican Brewing Company of Pacific City, Oregon, with their Fly ‘N Dry Brut IPA, which we have to enjoy this week (thanks once again to fellow 10,000 Birds beat writer Jason Crotty for sending me a can!), If you haven’t tried a brut IPA yet, Pelican Brewing Company offers a great introduction to the style with Fly ‘N Dry.

Zero Gravity Brewing Company: Bobolink Saison

10,000 Birds

But in the 1980s, the pioneering American company Vanberg & DeWulf began exporting a stronger Belgian saison named Saison Vielle Provision by Brasserie Dupont, a brewery operating in a 1759 farmhouse in Tourpes.

North Coast Brewing Company: Le Merle Saison

10,000 Birds

But I felt I should at least return in spirit by an enjoying a beer from North Coast Brewing Company of Fort Bragg, a long-established craft brewery on that state’s Mendocino Coast. In fact, North Coast’s Le Merle is the very beer that caused that “Le Merle” – a beer by Trinity Brewing Company and henceforth known as You Never Even Call Me By My Name – to change its name, under the threat of litigation. North Coast Brewing Company: Le Merle Saison.

Old Crow Distillery Company: Old Crow

10,000 Birds

Gaines and Company continued distilling bourbon according to his recipe. Old Crow’s parent company was sold to Jim Beam in 1987 and the new owners abandoned the Old Crow distillery and whichever version of the “original” recipe was being followed at the time.

Fremont Brewing Company: Session Pale Ale

10,000 Birds

So, with one week of the season remaining, let’s return the same brewery with whom we heralded the very first signs of spring back in the middle of February, with another beer from Fremont Brewing Company of Seattle, Washington.

Lamplighter Brewing Company: Birds of a Feather

Fat Orange Cat Brew Company: The Raven

10,000 Birds

It’s impossible to pick up a can of The Raven – a chocolate raspberry porter by the Fat Orange Cat Brew Company of East Hampton, Connecticut – and not think of that most famous supernatural poem by Edgar Allan Poe.

Greenport Harbor Brewing Company Black Duck Porter

10,000 Birds

Having grown up in Suffolk County on Long Island, New York, I made the reasonable assumption that the Black Duck Porter made by Greenport Harbor Brewing Company was named for the American Black Duck , a locally common dabbler found throughout the East End’s many bays and saltmarshes. Thanks to these efforts, porter is once again a popular and familiar style, and I think this version by Greenport Harbor Brewing Company is a particularly worth offering.

Anchorage Brewing Company: Whiteout Wit

10,000 Birds

Whiteout Wit is brewed by the Anchorage Brewing Company, a relatively new brewery in Alaska that specializes in barrel fermentations with wild yeast and sour cultures. Finally, I must mention that a Snowy Owl would have been my obvious choice to represent an Alaskan beer named Whiteout, but Anchor Brewing Company went with what looks like Barred Owl instead. Anchorage Brewing Company: Whiteout Wit.

Boston Brewing Company: Cold Snap

10,000 Birds

This week’s beer is from the Boston Beer Company – a brand much better known by the name it shares with its flagship product, Sam Adams. It’s easy to dismiss the company as too big, too mainstream, too conservative – especially these days when the obscure and experimental nanobrewery down the block is turning out barrel-aged, sour imperial IPAs infused with passionfruit and cacao nibs, while Sam Adams is about as corporate as craft beer gets. Boston Beer Company: Cold Snap.

Lagunitas Brewing Company: Dark Swan Sour Ale

10,000 Birds

It’s after this species – the Black Swan ( Cygnus atratus ) – and its unexpected discovery that Lagunitas Brewing Company of Petaluma, California named one of their “OneHitter” series seasonal releases this year. Lagunitas Brewing Company: Dark Swan Sour Ale.

Mast Landing Brewing Company – A Beer Named Duck New England Pale Ale

An enigmatic line of text emblazoned across the can of this week’s featured beer – the Sherwood Double New England India Pale Ale from Connecticut Valley Brewing Company – implores us to “Rise and Rise Again”.

Trillium Brewing Company: Stumpy Duck American Pale Ale

10,000 Birds

Stumpy Duck is an American pale ale by Trillium Brewing Company of Boston, Massachusetts, one of the most popular breweries in New England for the past few years. In this kind of company, the often-overlooked and underappreciated Mallard starts looking pretty good, at least from a North American birding perspective. Trillium Brewing Company: Stumpy Duck American Pale Ale. The week even has its own beer, the Paleican Pale Ale brewed by Bakfish Brewing Company o f Pearland.

Janet Jackson Continues as Spokesperson for Mink Fur Company

Critter News

The Seattle-based company supplies “the finest, most luxurious and exclusive ranch-raised natural black mink.” Given the fact that Jackson is representing a company that traffics in the fur trade, animal rights activists might get their feathers ruffled by Jackson’s continued associations with a luxe fur brand. What is the attraction of fur? I just don't get it. Wear your own damn skin! I'm disappointed in Janet Jackson and am totally taking her stuff off Rhapsody.

However, that very week came the unfortunate news that the Mendocino was shutting down along with its New York sister brewery, Saratoga Brewing Company.

Connecticut Oil Company President Illegally Owns Primate

Critter News

However, this time the owner is an oil and gas company president , not some eccentric woman on Xanax. Pierce Onthank, the president of an oil and gas company, was charged in January with illegal possession of a primate for keeping a siamang, a type of gibbon that is native to rain forests in Malaysia and Indonesia and can weigh up to 30 pounds and stand 3 feet high. I'm starting to wonder about Connecticut. It's the same state where the Travis incident occurred.

“How about Pineapple Gose-beak?” – Uinta Brewing Company: Flamingose

10,000 Birds

Which brings us to this week’s beer by the Uinta Brewing Company of Salt Lake City, Utah: Flamingose – a pun that requires no explanation. The long, graceful neck of this bottle would have made a fitting tribute to the flamingo’s anatomy – especially rendered in pink glass – but Uinta Brewing Company opted for more sensible packaging for Flamingose.

Egg Companies Accused of Price Collusion

Critter News

The Justice Department has opened investigations. It's in the Wall Street Journal. Fresh-egg farmers acted together through a series of export shipments, organized by United Egg Producers, an industry cartel whose 250-plus members include virtually all of the nation's big egg producers. By removing a small fraction of eggs that would have been bound for U.S.

Another Company Plans to Make Money from Recycling Animal Carcasses

Critter News

The company is Biosphere Technologies and the patented technology is Biorefinex. Waste not, want not. It takes all the inedible parts of the animal and makes it into an ooze that can be used as fertilizer or converted into biogas. It also keeps carcasses out of landfills and incinerators. Again, being marketed as good for the environment. And again, I ask, what about all the human corpses sitting in all these cemeteries. Aren't these cemetaries a type of landfill too?

Half Acre Beer Company: Lead Feather Black Ale

10,000 Birds

Lead Feather, a “black ale” by the Half Acre Beer Company of Chicago, comes in a one-pint “tallboy” can decorated with a bizarre, pseudo-heraldic black-and-white raptor of indeterminate species depicted “spread eagle” (or “displayed”, to use the correct heraldic attitude), chained and wearing a plumed falconer’s hood, and gripping a mallet and sword in its talons.

Seven Oil Companies Charged in Killing Twenty-Eight Birds

10,000 Birds

Once a well is completed, companies are required to clean up the pit, and it must be covered with netting if it’s open for more than 90 days. The increasing number of dead birds has state officials debating whether to ban waste oil pits and require companies to recycle liquid drilling waste. The ducks landed in oil waste pits in western North Dakota in May and June where they were found dead. The so-called reserve pits are used during oil and gas drilling operations.

Trinity Brewing Company: You Never Even Call Me By My Name

You Never Even Call Me By My Name by Trinity Brewing Company (whose Le Capitaine Saison we featured last year) is the new name for a saison-style ale the brewery used to call Merle – or Merle, Saison Nocturnum, to give its full name. To make things even more confusing, Trinity Brewing Company is located in Colorado Springs, where none of the thrushes are black, but one of the resident blackbird species – which are all New World icterids – is named for a Brewer.
