Greg Dennis: This Copper Ale's now not for you

Posted on March 26, 2015 |
By Greg Dennnis



Here’s a recipe for a fun evening. Grab a six-pack of New Coke, hop in your Ford Edsel, and come on over so we can discuss Starbucks’ wildly successful campaign to get its customers to talk to each other about race.

When we’re done dissecting how well it worked for Starbucks to have their baristas write “Race Together” on their incredibly wasteful paper cups, we can turn to the subject of beer.

Local beer, I mean. In particular, Otter Creek Brewing Co.’s shocking decision to retire its flagship Copper Ale.

Until a few years ago, the Vermont Principals’ Association endorsed a straightforward system for seeding playoff teams in its four divisions.

Teams were awarded more points for winning against teams in higher divisions or on the road, and fewer points for winning against teams in lower divisions or at home.

For instance, if Division II Vergennes won a basketball game at D-I Champlain Valley Union, it would earn six points. The same win at home would earn five.
