Ask Adam: Do People Who Drink Beer Get Bitten by Mosquitoes More?
Q – I’ve heard that if I drink beer I am more likely to be bitten by mosquitoes. Is that true?

Meet the king of collabs Kyle Harrop. Way back in the day, Harrop’s first release was Great Maple, a Maple Barrel Aged Imperial Stout. Even before it was released, Harrop’s reputation had earned the beer looks from beer media, and people were excited and trying to get their hands on his product. Great Maple was an absolute hit, and was followed by Boss Tycoon, Harrop’s collaboration with J. Wakefield Brewing, and Frenched Toast, his collab with Great Notion Brewing. Harrop became beer famous. “The success of the collabs started the phones,” Harrop said. Other brewers wanted to collaborate, and consumers wanted to know where they could get his beer.

London’s Camden Town Brewery has has launched what it’s called “the UK’s first brewery-based urban vertical farm”.
Teaming up with Rootlabs, who construct urban farms, and sister company to GrowUp Community Farms, the companies champion the use of vertical farming, a method of planting that both saves space and uses 90% less water than traditional techniques.
The initial strawberry crop will be used to brew Camden’s seasonal Strawberry Hells Forever beer.
The brewer will donate 20p from every can of Strawberry Hells sold to GrowUp Community Farms to help support their mission.

In February last year, using sonar technology, Pol Roger unearthed 26 bottles of intact Champagne, which are believed to come from the 1898 vintage.
