What's going on in the beer world?



<font size=4>This year, L&F Distributors is celebrating its 40th anniversary in the beer business. Without our friends, family and communities, we wouldn't have made it this far.</br> <br>It all started in 1978 when Joe LaMantia Jr was granted an exclusivity contract for an Anheuser-Busch distributorship in McAllen, Texas. On the day of the ground-breaking, L&F Distributors only had 20 employees. Today, we have more than 1,200 employees throughout eight warehouses in Texas and Southern New Mexico, and we service more than 35 counties within these regions.</br> <br>Here's a quick video to thank our communities for all the support. Cheers to you and cheers to the next 40 years!</br></font> <br><object align=center><iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/3UU7kyt09zw" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe></object>...READ MORE

The Last Blockbuster Beer From 10 Barrel Brewing Lets You Celebrate The Video Chain In A Decidedly Grown-Up Way

Break out the Red Vines, grab a box of Milk Duds, fire up the Jiffy Pop, and pop your favorite ‘90s flick in the VCR: Blockbuster is not dead — and it’s even got its own beer now. Called the Last Blockbuster, the beer is a collaboration between Bend, Ore.-based craft brewery 10 Barrel Brewing and the once-great home video rental giant. Lest that collaboration sound a little… uh… confusing, however, it actually makes a lot of sense: At this point in time, there is one remaining Blockbuster video rental store in the United States — and it, like 10 Barrel, is located in Bend. You’ll have to act fast if you want to try the beer, though; it’s not going to be around for long....READ MORE
