Pabst Blue Ribbon tells the story of John “Chickie” Donohue, a former merchant seaman from the Inwood neighborhood of New York City who traveled more than halfway around the world to keep a promise that he would buy his friends a beer the next time his work took him to Vietnam. Little did his friends realize that he would sneak into an actual combat zone in order to do so. 47 years later, the men reunited to recount the amazing tale.
At a time when the Vietnam War was at its height, one man, John “Chickie” Donohue, snuck back into the war zone to find his 3 closest friends and buy them a beer. Crazy or caring, Chickie gave his friends more than beer, he gave them hope. Hope that helped each one safely return home when the war was over. Now, 47 years later, the group is reunited to relive the greatest beer run ever.
In celebration of their new location in Dundee, Scottish craft brewery Innis & Gunn UK has created the very curious Marm & Ale, a smooth preserve that is infused with their signature “oak barrel aged” ale and in turn, they’ve also created a marmalade-flavored IPA. Dougal Sharp, the founder of the brewery and master brewer, told Herald Scotland that the new location is giving them an opportunity to experiment.
Launching in this great city has provided us with an opportunity to do what we do best: push the boundaries of what’s possible with beer through innovation and experimentation. That’s why we’ve been hard at work brewing a marmalade IPA and even creating spreadable beer for adventurous foodies.

John Halcyon Styn, the founder of Hug Nation, has a really creative mom who knows how to keep her children engaged in the family’s annual Easter Egg hunt. Over the years she changed it up a bit but after the hard-boiled eggs, candy filled plastic eggs and cold, hard cash had run their respective courses, Mrs. Styn turned to another treat she knew her kids would find interesting.
She could tell that her kids enthusiasm for the annual easter egg hunt was waning. When hard boiled eggs lost their luster, she introduced candy-filled plastic eggs. As the kids got older she would fill the plastic eggs with coins, and then dollar bills. But when we hit our 20’s, the easter egg magic was gone. One year, after a nice Easter breakfast, Mom announced, “Time for the Easter Hunt!” Jim and I groaned. But our exaggerated disinterest evaporated when Mom produced the baskets. She set out a bunch of empty cardboard 6 pack holders, filled with plastic green grass. “The front yard is filled with micro-brews,” she announced.” “Each of you is responsible for finding 6 beers. There are wine coolers and cans of Ensure for Grandpa. You can trade bottles after the hunt is over.” And so the Easter Beer Hunt was born. And what was a withering tradition gained a new fervor. Now we eagerly await the annual Easter Hunt.
