IFIND IT REALLY sad that there are some people who are basing there decision of who to vote for on who they would rather have a beer with. If W. is re-elected, chances are he'll be drinking alone. Those of us in the lower and middle class probably won't be able to afford to buy a beer. People need to wake up and vote on the issues. Gore was a bore, but he wouldn't have made most of the country poor. Now is the time to atone for that mess of an election in 2000. Don't leave it to the conservative Supreme Court to "reappoint" W. Let's elect John Kerry and take our country back.

Beer is no longer the cloth coat of beverages, once associated with fast food and cheap dates, acceptable only at the beach, on the foul line, or in front of the television, according to Hal Rubenstein in Elle magazine. Beer has become as fashionable as high-topped sneakers. Currently, the most popular new beer in California is a light, spicy Mexican beer called Corona. What is unique about Corona, however, is how it often is served - with a wedge of lime pushed down the neck of the bottle.

Beer bonbons Beer and chocolate have long been classic companions. But they can now be savored in the same sweet gulp with this exquisite six-pack of brew-infused truffles from Christopher Curtin of West Chester's Éclat Chocolate. Crafted as a limited edition fundraiser for Philly Beer Week, Curtin tapped six outstanding local beers to flavor these confections. I especially liked the bright smack of Victory's Hop Wallop, the dark richness of Stoudt's Fat Dog imperial stout, and the fruity pucker of Iron Hill's Belgian-style cassis sour ale.   A pretty pilsner Sip your beer in style with this hand-blown Pilsner-style glassware from Simon Pearce.

The reasons to cook with beer are as varied as the types of beer. The best reason is that beer can have so many nuanced flavors - unique to each particular brew. There will be sweetness from malted grain, bitterness from hops, and rich fruity tones from the yeasts and other ingredients that combine during the brewing process into a liquid with many possible culinary uses. Belgians have beef-and-beer stew - carbonnade flammade, which rivals the French beef and red wine classic, beef bourguignonne, full of savory meat and vegetables brought together with a sauce featuring Belgian ale to great effect.

THE Daily News editorial "Wrong Cure for Stop-n-Gos" (July 6) correctly indicates that the beer-to-go permit process violated the due process rights of storeowners because City Council commingled legislative and prosecutorial functions. But the editorial rationalizes Council's actions by using these businesses as scapegoats for many of the problems in the city. So it's necessary to provide the other side of the story. Your editorial states that granting a state liquor license to a store depends on Council's acceptance of a beer-to-go permit.

Sidled up against the polished cherry-wood bar, watching the bartender tip a tall, slender glass at a perfect 45-degree angle beneath the shiny brass spigot, creating just the right frothy head on the amber ale I had ordered, an image flashed through my head: Boy, had my beer-drinking come a long way since the days I sat with my college friends on a park bench in the median on Broadway, passing around a bottle of Colt 45 hidden in a paper bag. ...

GRATITUDE TO Harrisburg lawmakers reaching their long arms into the way the city does business is not something we welcome every day. In fact, the messages we send are usually the opposite: Whether it's the takeover of the city Parking Authority or Harrisburg's attempts to Big Foot our zoning authority over casinos, our usual message is "Go away. " But we're grateful for the new state law that puts some sense back into the process of issuing stop-n-go beer takeout licenses.

It definitely wasn't Miller Time in Yeadon Thursday night. Upset with a growing problem of teenage drinking, about 30 residents packed Borough Hall, wanting reassurance from council members that they and police would monitor the sale of beer at a deli on Church Lane. The residents are concerned about the proposed expansion of Span's Deli, at 706 Church Lane, into a convenience store with added seating for patrons. Although the deli has sold beer for about 15 years, residents said the expansion would add to an underage drinking problem in the neighborhood.

Phillies fans - well-known for their ability to boo losers - get a chance to bellow loud and clear about the food and drink lineup at Veterans Stadium.

Martha Warburton of Middletown said she was disappointed. Not angry or vindictive, just disappointed. She and her husband, William, had appealed to Judge Melvin G. Levy in Delaware County Court Monday to hand down a jail sentence for James Bewley, 25, for buying beer for four teenagers, including their 17-year-old daughter Heather, on the night of Aug. 9, 1988. Heather was killed later that night in an auto accident related to the teen drinking. Levy listened attentively to the Warburtons' impassioned plea and, after noting that Bewley, of the 300 block of South Providence Road, Nether Providence, had no record, sentenced him to three years' probation and a $750 fine.

After more than a year of anticipation that featured months of gridlock with a Delaware County township and pushback from residents and beer distributors, Wawa announced Thursday that it had gained approval to sell beer in one of its Pennsylvania stores. But the region's beer-consuming loyal fans of the convenience store should not get too excited yet: The approval is solely for one Delaware County store. Still, Wawa's foray into the beer market would mark the first time since 2003 that the Delaware County-based chain would be able to sell brews alongside its hoagies in the Keystone State.

Technology has improved almost everything about the experience of going out to a bar: Plan your night with a group text, get there in an Uber, split the bill on Venmo, and document it all on Instagram. But getting a drink in a crowded bar? It's still just as much of a hassle as ever. First, shout your order over the din, then pay with cash and wait around for change, use a credit card and wait for the receipt, or start a tab and try to remember to close it out at the end of the night.

Were you skeptical that crowdfunding would help small companies go public? So were we, but it's actually happening. Forthcoming IPOs include craft beer companies, a bionic pancreas, and a camp for girls. Roughly 75 small companies, some start-ups and some longtime small businesses, have filed with federal regulators to go public using crowdfunding "portals. " These stock and bond offerings are put out via the new financing portals, which are all electronic. The portals became legal as of May, but regulators stress that investing in start-ups is risky.

In 2008, news of a global hops shortage sent brewers into a cold panic. But for a few would-be farmers, it planted the seed - or, more precisely, the rhizome - of an idea. Though it had been nearly a century since this region's hops industry was decimated by a disease called downy mildew, then eradicated by Prohibition, perhaps, they thought, it was time for a comeback. Today, that resurgence is taking root in places like Oast House Hop Farm in Wrightstown, N.J., where about an acre of a former horse farm has been impaled with 20-foot poles, suspending vines bearing the flowers that give beer its bitter, floral, herbal, or fruity notes.

"BREAKING: SIX-PACKS APPROVED FOR SALE AT PENNSYLVANIA GAS STATIONS!" - Headline on Gov. Wolf's blog WITH THAT, Pennsylvania, your beer laws have finally entered the 20th century. And, yes, I do mean last century, for despite the screaming caps, last month's approval is both meaningless and illustrative of the small thinking that accompanies liquor regulation in this state. For starters, the approval applies only to nine gas stations statewide, and most are in the boondocks, so . . . next time you are in Mahanoy City, fill 'er up!
