Police: Chicago woman had open alcohol, drugs in car on I-80/94 – Chicago Sun-Times

A Chicago woman is facing charges after she was pulled over, and police found open alcohol and drugs in her car early Monday in northwest Indiana.

Sarah J. Donohue, 33, faces one felony count of possession of cocaine and misdemeanor counts of possession of paraphernalia and false informing, according to Indiana State Police.

At 12:21 a.m., a trooper saw the driver of a 2001 Chrysler sedan make an unsafe lane movement on the Indiana Toll Road about a half-mile east of the Illinois state line, police said.

The trooper pulled the car over and saw an open container of alcohol in the driver’s side cup holder, and when Donohue lowered the window, he smelled alcohol, police said.

The trooper asked for the woman’s driver’s license and she said she didn’t have it, but could provide her information, police said. She gave the name Alexsandra Alvarez, 35, but that information could not be verified.

When asked again, Donohue gave the same information and told the trooper it was his job to find out who she is, police said. When the trooper asked her to get out of the vehicle, he spotted a pipe in the driver’s door compartment.

Donohue then provided the trooper with her real name, police said. She was not over the legal limit for alcohol, and was wanted on a Rockford Police Department warrant for possession of dangerous drugs.

A search of the car turned up three more pipes and a bag containing about three grams of cocaine, police said.

Donohue, a Chicago resident, was also cited for having an open container, driving while license suspended/revoked, and unsafe lane movement, police said. She was taken to the Lake County Jail.

Shmaltz Brewing Releasing New Versions of Its Two Chanukah Beers – Food & Wine (blog)

The brewery, known for its “He’brew” line, is once again offering up alternatives to traditional Christmas beers.

The beer world has no shortage of Christmas beers. Some people even consider these seasonal offerings to be a style all to themselves – typically strong, malty brews hit with plenty of holiday spice. But Chanukah beers, they’ve always been a bit harder to come by. However, there’s always been one company you could count on to hold down the Chanukah beer fort: New York’s Shmaltz Brewing. And this year, the brand that dubs itself “a Jewish celebration craft beer” is once again releasing two seasonal brews for the eight day festival.

Shmaltz is probably best known for its He’brew line of beers, and like that name, fans of the brewery will recognize the name of these two “new” seasonal beers as well: Chanukah, Hunukkah… Pass the Beer and Jewbelation. However, as in the past, both beers have seen their recipes tweaked for this year’s release.

The 2017 version of Chanukah, Hanukkah is a golden strong ale brewed with cocoa nibs that takes additional inspiration from the holiday by using eight malts and eight hops to create an 8 percent ABV beer. “The fluffy white head releases notes of honey, chocolate, and harkens back to memories of Holiday gelt coins,” the brewery explains. As for the flavor, the malts and hops “balance biscuit and toast with light peach smoothly dancing with the chocolate from the cocoa nibs and a hint of vanilla on the finish.”

Meanwhile, this year’s Jewbelation is officially named Jewbelation 21. Even though this is only the 14th year of the beer’s release, the “21” is meant to celebrate Shmaltz Brewing’s 21st birthday, with the brand originally launching back in 1996. The brewery says this doubly special brew is

Beer trade group takes aim at Anheuser-Busch's craft acquisitions in new campaign – STLtoday.com

In a dig at Anheuser-Busch InBev’s numerous recent acquisitions of craft breweries, the Brewers Association trade group is launching its own takeover bid that’s more about raising awareness than actually buying the company. 

The Colorado-based Brewers Association said it’s seeking to raise $213 billion to buy Belgium-based A-B InBev, the world’s largest brewer, which has its U.S. headquarters in St. Louis. The campaign aligns with the BA’s “purpose to promote and protect America’s small and independent craft brewers,” the nonprofit group says. 

In a video and website, takecraftback.com, the Brewers Association said Monday the crowdfunding campaign is designed to make the company “an offer they can’t refuse.”

The takeover bid isn’t really an attempt to buy the maker of Bud Light and Budweiser, and “No money will be collected until we reach $213 billion in pledges …*wink,* you get the picture,” the Brewers Association says on its website. 

Blue Point Brewing Company, 10 Barrel Brewing, Elysian Brewing Company and Golden Road Brewing are a few of A-B’s recent craft acquisitions. Its latest craft beer purchase was earlier this year, when it acquired North Carolina’s Wicked Weed Brewing.  

“When you think of craft beer, do you think of factories cranking out hundreds of millions of barrels a year, a publicly traded company worth $213 billion? No,” a bearded character named Andy says in the BA’s video while surrounded by flannel-clad brewers. “This time we’re going to take on the oppressive, big beer machine before they can bleed the passion out of the independent craft brewing culture forever.” 

As of midday Monday, more than a half million dollars had been pledged in the campaign. 

“It’s definitely tongue-in-cheek but about a serious message,” Julia Herz, the Brewers’ Association’s craft beer program director, told the Post-Dispatch. “Frankly, the water’s getting murkier and it’s harder and harder
