While California State Polytechnic University in Pomona, CA isn't the first university to hold a class on beer, it is the first to sell the beer made by the brewing class on campus. The increased interest in craft beer may be the reason behind growing popularity in college brewing courses. Cal Poly is only the beginning, Colorado State University also plans to start selling its microbrews made by students. 

Since the craft beer industry is growing, David Ryder, chief brewmaster for MillerCoors told CBS Los Angeles, “This could be a natural progression for college programs."

Nancy Grace is not a fan of legalizing weed, and she had rapper 2 Chainz on her show Tuesday night in an epic debate about it called "#Pot2Blame".

The host tried and failed to convince him that changing the law would turn all children into pot smoking fiends, using a few videos of parents forcing their kids to smoke as an example.

"Some people actually love their child," he said. "Some people know that this is obviously wrong, so this is nothing to really argue about. These people are imbeciles. You can't use this case to define a whole community."

2 Chainz, whose real name is Tauheed Epps, came off as the calm, collected one and Nancy Grace probably should have taken a few hits herself before the interview to calm down. He argued that everyone can pretty much get weed if they want already, and that legalizing it would help with certain issues like the overcrowding of prisons and wasted tax dollars.

"We're in a deficit. We've got to find ways of getting out," he said. "If we got half of the states legalizing pot, if the rest of the community legalizes pot that frees up taxpayers money, that'll allow us to do something with this extra with these funds from fixing potholes in the street to building stadiums. I'm down with it."

Another great moment was when she read some of his lyrics to question his position as a role model for kids.

"'Smoking California weed with California whores' — excuse me, 'true.' I left that out," said Grace.

"Truuuue!" replied 2 Chainz.

He politely thanked her on his Twitter account afterwards and teased another debate that we hope will happen very soon.

From the New York Times:

A Russian beverage company said on Thursday that it was acquiring the Pabst Brewing Company, which makes the Pabst Blue Ribbon beer popular with barflies and hipsters alike and other brands like Colt 45 and Old Milwaukee.

The company did not disclose terms of the transaction, but people briefed on the matter said the price was more than $700 million in cash.

The buyer is Oasis Beverages, a Russian brewer and beverages distributor. Backing Oasis is TSG Consumer Partners, an American private equity firm focused on consumer goods, which will take a minority stake.

Palcohol allows you to take your favorite drink and sprinkle it on whatever you like, for example rum powdered cookies. But, it's not all delicious ideas and treats as people, especially parents worried about kids getting ahold of the substance, are raising concern over the powdered adult beverage. Colorado has already banned sale of Palcohol. For the rest of the US, it should be available by summer time.

The folks at highly regarded Russian River Brewing stress one thing that may surprise you: freshness. It's practically a mantra for this famed Santa Rosa brewery.

They want you to enjoy their Pliny the Elder, a world-class double India Pale Ale, as soon as possible. It's not something to stock up on for the big barbecue in six months. It's definitely not something to collect and break out in a few years for a special occasion.

"Beer is a perishable product. The way we make our IPAs, they're not meant to age," said Russian River co-owner Natalie Cilurzo. "The fresher they are, the better they are.
