Past, Present or Future

While no one could have foretold the existence of glitter beer within the decade, brewers, investors, and consumers alike are trying to pin down their predictions of what the trends will be for the next roaring '20s in order to capitalize. It's no secret that the recent legislation on cannabis, White Claw law, or sober-curious movements have forced the industry to make some urgent moves, but as seen in the recent Forbes article, the fore-mentioned are all Looking Ahead. By far, the most interesting trend I've found of today was the fascinating determination of Trail Brewers. Yeah. Hikers, making their own beer, on the trail. The latest issue of Zymurgy Magazine breaks it right down for your next nomadic adventure. Although consumption and consumerism are at the root of the panic to stay ahead of the upcoming trends, we prefer to savor the flavors of the bygone decade and reminisce favorably on both the ingenious and forgettable moments of our craft with Beervana's 2010s in Review.

Briess Caramel 20L Malts for homebrewing beer

Briess Caramel 20L is a light crystal malt made with 6-row barley. It imparts a golden color, candy-like sweetness, and mild caramel flavor. Crystal malts also add body and improve head retention. Usage is progressive, starting light to balance pilsners and reaching the maximum 15% to impart color and sweetness to darker ales, stouts, and porters.

$0.12 / oz

Excellent aromatic qualities make Azacca® a go-to hop for late and dry hop additions in a variety of styles, although its high myrcene fraction has made it a favorite of IPA brewers. Shows well as a single hop in a simple grist. Intense and tropical. Sustained impressions of citrus and very ripe mango, with notes of orchard fruit (pears, apples) and pine needles throughout.

$2.19 / oz

BRY-97 is a neutral strain with a high flocculation ability that can be used to make a wide variety of American-style beers that include but are certainly not limited to Cream Ale, American Wheat, Scotch Ale, American Pale Ale, American Amber, American Brown, American IPA, American Stout, Russian Imperial Stout, Imperial IPA, Roggen/Rye, Old Ale and American Barleywine
