Founders Brewing Company announced the 8th and last entry into the Backstage Series for 2013, Sweet Repute. Tack on a pale ale to the news list. The brewery already has a year round dry hopped pale ale, so keep that in mind. The Gerald R. Ford Dry Hopped Pale Ale is most likely a special edition label.
The USS Gerald R. Ford aircraft carrier is set to be christened on November 13, 2013. Interestingly, the ship CVN-78 is considered to be the lead class of Navy super carriers. It is over 1100 feet long, can carry over 75 aircraft, and cost 13 billion to build. Oh, and since it’s nuclear powered, it has unlimited ocean range. It never stops.
If you stop and think about it, aircraft carriers are a feat of technology and engineering. Just like beer can be.
