Christopher asks:

The York Press reports on Phil Saltonstall's plans to import English cask ale here - and ship craft US ale back to the old country - once he moves here with his wife, Harriet, who becomes Her Majesty's representative in New England in August.

The local craft brewers are calling it a day, with their last beer to ship in a couple weeks:

We hope our beers brought you joy and brought you closer together. There’s no greater goal for a batch of beer or a project like ours.

After seven years it’s time to draw the curtains and head off to a new adventure. A poorly drawn grain of barley called Jack D’Or made this whole thing possible. He’ll be coming with us.

Cheers to you all.

The Herald reports how sales of the Pennsylvania beer are tanking in Boston and cites our provincial attitudes as one reason.

First, New Englanders are largely suspicious of outside brands and prefer to support our own.

The Herald calls it the Krispy Kreme Syndrome, implying that we rejected them only because the city with the largest number of historic firsts in the country is resistant to change, not because we realized after awhile that their donuts were, in fact, sugar-coated air, served with mediocre coffee.
