Inky Beer Factoid: January 15

On this day in 1995, new area codes were given to Southern Alabama (334) and Western Washington (360).  One of the most well-known area code craft beers is Goose Island’s “312 Urban Wheat”.  Although a clever idea, be sure to check when wanting to name your beer after your area code.  Anheuser-Busch InBev has trademarks on 15 U.S. area codes (i.e., 303-Denver, 415-San Francisco) and 42 U.S. airport codes (i.e., JFK, LAX, BOS).
