Angel City Brewing's head brewer, Dieter Foerstner, doesn't need a history lesson on the once-great legacy of beer-making in Los Angeles. During World War I, his great-grandfather brewed for the Los Angeles Brewing Co., which was formed in 1897 and was once the nation's fifth-largest producer. "I was looking for my pop's old recipes, but my great uncle said they never wrote them down," Foerstner said. No matter, as Angel City Brewing under Foerstner is itself undergoing a fresh start.

C. James Koch, the man behind Sam Adams beer, is a newly minted billionaire, and he owes it all to craft beer. Or, perhaps craft beer owes it all to Koch. Koch, a Harvard grad with multiple acronyms (BA, MBA, JD), wanted to make beer. It was a family thing. As the Sam Adams site says, he brewed his great-great-grandfather's recipe in his kitchen in 1984. Then he brewed his beer in batches and carried bottles bar to bar. A year later, Koch's Boston Beer Co. created Samuel Adams. Six weeks later, it won a "Best Beer in America" consumer poll.

"That was really a turning point, because it was early in the shoot, and it was a big scene. I'd been talking to Kodi about shock, how your system shuts down and you're numb to everything. But when you come out of shock, it's like a freight train hitting you. All the emotions flood in. So we had a great little conversation about that, and he went off. But when we were doing the scene, he was also very sensitive to cold, and the river kind of pushed him over the edge, to the point where he started to cry for real.

There were moments when he seemed haughty and cocksure, and there were times when he groped unsteadily to remember details. But in nearly six days of tedious examination before a federal jury, former CIA analyst Sam Adams stuck doggedly to the story he has pushed for more than a decade--that Gen. William C. Westmoreland was in the middle of a conspiracy that misled President Lyndon B. Johnson and Congress on the size of the enemy threat at a crucial moment in the long Vietnam War.

Disregard, for now, the popular pre-election question of which candidate you'd rather have a beer with. The real sudsy issue at hand is whether the alcoholic brew is healthful. That's the claim being made by Alexis Nasard, chief commercial officer for Heineken, who told CNBC on Monday that “there is everything healthy about beer.” A cold one, he said, is all natural - just water, hops, barley and yeast - and “fewer calories than a glass of milk.” The Dutch brand is partnering with the 007 franchise to pitch “Skyfall,” the latest film in the series.

Portland Mayor Sam Adams, the first openly gay man to lead a major American city, is no stranger to street protest - he's been in the middle of more than he can count. He's battled for bike lanes, railed against social services funding cuts and led the charge for green buildings. Now, he's the progressive mayor of one of the nation's most progressive cities - and his police force recently stormed in riot gear through a camp full of true believers. "It turned into a brawl over Porta Pottis and crime," Adams said glumly last week at City Hall, not far from where the abandoned parks of Occupy Portland stood empty and forlorn, surrounded by makeshift chain-link fences.
