Beer Blog: Sixpoint Brewery’s RAD

first_imgEveryone should get Rad.Those of you born in the ‘80s probably remember the bitchin’ BMX movie RAD, which followed Cru Jones (awesome name) in his attempt to race Helltrack (awesomer name). It was one of those undeniably bad movies that helped define my childhood, and every time I see a hipster wearing an ironic T-shirt that says “Rad,” I’m immediately transported back to a dusty, homemade BMX track built quickly in the vacant lot of my best friend’s neighborhood. It was no Helltrack, but I was no Cru Jones either.Now there’s a beer that’s poised to transport me back to those dirt riding, day-glo wearing days of innocence—Sixpoint Brewery (out of Brooklyn) has released RAD, an ale mixed with a blend of fruit juices. Yep, beer and juice. They’re calling it a “Cycliquid,” (as in Cycle-Liquid). It sounds crazy, but apparently there’s some history to this sort of drink. Back in Germany in the ‘20s, an industrious bar owner started mixing beer with lemon soda and serving it to thirsty cyclists on tour. The cyclists loved it—the drink quenched their thirst without knocking them on their ass.A revived interest in sessionable beers has brought the style back.  Leinenkugel Brewery makes a Summer Shandy (beer and lemonade) and Coors is doing something similar with their new Summer Brew, which takes your standard Coors Light and blends in citrus juice.Personally, I’d like to see more of this beer, particularly from local breweries that have big cycling connections (I’m looking at you Devils Backbone and Pisgah). In the meantime, you can get Rad all on your own. Take your favorite light beer (any lager or pilsner will do) and mix in some lemonade. Try a three parts beer to two parts lemonade ratio.It’s like drinking Juicy Fruit gum with a bit of alcohol in it. Everyone get Rad.last_img read more

first_imgBy all means, this is not a simple task. A lot of time, effort and resources go into recruiting and hiring the right employee. But even after they’ve accepted the job offer, there is a lot of work to be done to help ensure the employee is properly engaged and able to meet performance expectations. During the first few month of employment, employees will be drawing conclusions about the job, company, manager, and co-workers. Their experience during this time is the foundation on which the employment relationship will be built. Not only is it important to welcome new employees into the organization and familiarize them with their job responsibilities, but they should also be given a background of the company’s culture and expectations, as well as, the tools and resources necessary to help them succeed.Many companies have orientation or onboarding programs that help to get employees off to a good start. However, some organizations could and should be doing more to help their employees be successful. Below are a few points to keep in mind when new employees join your team:1. Start introductions early. Once the applicant accepts your job offer and any post-offer screening is completed, the process of welcoming and introducing the new hire begins. Consider having their manager send a letter or email to the new employee expressing excitement their arrival. The manager should also maintain open and regular communication with the employee and answer any questions they may have. Also, don’t forget to inform existing employees of the new hire’s start date so that they can be prepared to appropriately welcome their new team member. continue reading » 8SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
