What do the words “Liquid Aloha” bring to mind? Swaying grass skirts and leis, or the frigid New England coast? You’re likely thinking more “Hawaii” and less “New Hampshire,” which is why two beer drinkers are suing the parent company of Kona Brewing Co., accusing it of misleading consumers into thinking they’re swilling Hawaiian beer when it’s actually made thousands of miles away.
Drinking beer isn’t exactly tough work, but brewing it on your own can be a disaster. Ex-Microsoft Vice President Bill Mitchell is trying to fix the latter problem with PicoBrew, a company that makes self-contained home brewing machines. PicoBrew’s latest, the Pico, uses prepackaged pods to brew beer like you’d make a single cup of coffee.
TORONTO – Nestlé’s Nespresso coffee brand is set to take on Tassimo, Keurig and Starbucks with a high-end brewing system of its own for those who like a big mug of coffee.
Nespresso, a hit brand in Europe, currently sells a single-serve machine for smaller espresso drinks, but its new VertuoLine system specifically targets North Americans’ preference for larger, 250-ml servings of java.
