What is a 'Bomber'?
Bomber is a slang term for a 22-oz. bottle, sold as a single. This bottle size is commonly used by craft and microbreweries to package their beer for distribution and retail sales. These bottles are also sometimes referred as ‘dinner size,’ since they are often served with meals.
What is ‘Adjunct’ in brewing?
An Adjunct is an unmalted fermentable ingredient, like honey or sugar, that is used to increase the alcohol or add flavor to the beer. Adjunct grains, like corn or rice, can be added to lighten the flavor of beer as well.
What is a ‘Dry Beer’?
In the late 1980’s, Asahi Brewery of Japan refined a brewing process that fermented virtually all the sugars in their beer. It was described as having less aftertaste and actually sold well for some time. Other breweries around the world began brewing ‘dry beers’ of their own, but the style was only briefly popular in the U.S. Dry beers still have a following in many parts of Asia.
