Come Drink Glitter Beer and Watch Stormy Daniels Talk About Donald Trump’s, Er, Manhood at Durty Bull Sunday Night

Posted By on Sat, Mar 24, 2018 at 6:20 PM

Glitter beer is a gimmick, and Matt Pennisi doesn’t normally do gimmicks. His Durty Bull Brewing Company, whose brewery opened a year and a half in downtown Durham, is known for its IPAs and funky, inventive sours. Make a beer sparkle with edible glitter is the sort of thing brewers do to get attention; he and his colleagues had only joked about it—wouldn’t it be funny if … They never actually considered doing it, not for real. It’s not that kind of brewery. But then he heard that porn star Stormy Daniels was giving an interview to 60 Minutes on Sunday...

The Farm Labor Organizing Committee Sues Governor Cooper on Behalf of Farmworkers, Saying a New State Law Is Discriminatory

Posted By on Wed, Nov 15, 2017 at 9:24 AM

The Farm Labor Organizing Committee filed a lawsuit this morning against North Carolina governor Roy Cooper over a state law that prohibits farmworkers from organizing and collectively bargaining with their employers. According to FLOC’s press release, the lawsuit argues that “North Carolina Farm Act of 2017 impedes farmworkers’ First Amendment right to participate in unions and asserts that the law is discriminatory, as more than 90 percent of the state’s agricultural workers are Latino.

Fullsteam Brewery to Withdraw from State Promotional Programs over HB 2

Posted By on Thu, Mar 31, 2016 at 6:43 PM

An astounding, reassuring number of companies, both local and global, have spoken out in opposition to HB 2. As of today, Durham's Fullsteam Brewery has joined those ranks and even gone a step beyond denouncing the discriminatory law. Fullsteam is a distinctly local operation; about 40 percent of its ingredients, from persimmon to honey to basil, come from North Carolina or the greater South. As owner of Fullsteam, Sean Lilly Wilson has often assisted with media missions that promote North Carolina travel and tourism, serving as an emissary for North Carolina craft beer. But today, Wilson announced on his personal Facebook page that he won't be doing...
