Pic(k) of the Week: New York State of Bass (Ale)

How far the mighty have fallen.

Bass Ale —once a mighty engine of the British industrial revolution, and brewed in Burton-on-Trent in the U.K.— is now owned by the Belgian-Brazilian conglomerate, Anheuser-Busch InBev. Founded in 1777, Bass has not existed as an independent company since the year 2000.

For the U.S. market, AB InBev brews Bass Pale Ale in ... Baldwinsville, upstate New York.
