  • Bartenders are the inspiration for new spirits line
    A group of former bartenders and spirits lovers came together to create a liquor line that not only appeals to drinkers but to the bartenders who serve them. The bottles have a ridge on the neck that make it easier to grab, with mouths designed so pour spouts won't fall out, and the bottles have ounce and liter measurements so mixologists can reuse to them to hold juices and syrups. "It’s about creating the tools that make [bartenders'] lives better," said Dushan Zaric, one of the partners of the 86 Co. spirits line.

  • Why companies should start investing in women
    Businesses should be investing more in women, write U.S. ambassador Melanne Verveer and Women in the World Foundation chief Kim Azzarelli. Women are the "third billion" -- an underserved global demographic with growing spending power and plenty to offer back to businesses and their communities. "As corporate leaders look for resilient dynamism and growth in 2013, there are no better partners poised to deliver profits and progress across geographies," Verveer and Azzarelli argue.

  • Report: Breweries are booming in Pennsylvania
    Pennsylvania's Legislative Budget and Finance Committee released a report last week that revealed there were twice as many breweries operating in the state in 2011 as there were in 2001. In 2011, there were more than 100 breweries in Pennsylvania that accounted for an output of 4.3 million barrels of beer. The report said breweries are a significant part of the state's economy, and that liquor laws should be changed to accommodate the growing industry.
