Homebrewing article in Forbes
« on: August 16, 2010, 06:15:55 PM »
Back in 2008, someone posted a thread on the NB forum involving a bottle of Allsopp's Arctic Ale from 1852 possibly worth around 300K and a 2000 mile motorcycle trip he was going to make (and film) in an effort to recreate it.

Here's the thread: http://forum.northernbrewer.com/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=83261&p=777879&hilit=belcher#p777879

Anyway, there was just an article in Forbes about it that was pretty cool (Drew Beechum is also mentioned). Here's the link: http://www.arcticalchemy.com/images/Forbes%20Magazine%20pg%2052%206-10.pdf

They interviewed me for that article, too, but I just wasn't interesting enough!

For some reason I got a free year subscription and saw the article.

The online version includes some video footage and more pictures:
