Resurrection of

Alas Liquid Solutions Inc. as a business entity is dead and buried but the website and purveyor of world-class beer lives on under the new ownership of Sixteen Tons LLC located in Eugene Oregon. We hope to have a great selection available shortly so as to continue to provide you with the great beers you expect from

I (Matt Maples) will be providing reviews, blogs, and all out beer commentary as usual.




It is that time once again. What started as a small surprise 80th birthday party for world-renowned beer writer Fred Eckhardt is coming back around in its fifth year as one of the most anticipated beer events of the year. As always, 100% of the proceeds from FredFest and the related auctions will go to a charity of Fred's choice. This year, Fred has named the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation as the 2010 recipient of the fest.

As stated above has been resurrected just in time to pitch in for the online FredFest auction. If you want to bid on any of these wonderful beers just click on

and follow the ”Auction” link on the upper left side of the screen. Bidding will start on Saturday evening 5/8/10 and start closing 6:00pm Pacific 5/15/10. Check lot details for specific closing times.
