All the News That’s Fit to Drink: your daily dose of news and happenings from around the drink-osphere.

– Only 23 percent of British drinkers go out to pubs on a regular basis—and most of Britain’s 18- to 34-year-olds are three times more likely to drink with friends at home than at a bar.

– Burgundy and Champagne have been granted World Heritage Site status.

– The demand for craft beer brewers is so high—and supply comparatively low—that one Texas college is offering a six-week course on brewing to fill the “talent drought.”
