Morning Grind

Morning Grind: May 7, 2013

Our daily morning roundup of food-related fare from around the web.

This week’s Morning Grind is sponsored by Chronicle Books’ Chronicle Eye Candy newsletter.

The “Day Without a Food Truck” stunt is part of the Food Truck Association Metropolitan’s aggressive grassroots campaign. You might also spot ads on Metro buses with the hashtag #saveDCfoodtrucks. The organization has been asking the public for $5 donations to help fund marketing materials for its cause.

You can take my food trucks, but you can never take my freedom.


With the help of design firm 4sight, Miller Lite is changing the look of its iconic glass bottle for the first time in 40 years.

My, what the world is coming to. 


When it comes to bourbon, Tom Lix doesn’t believe in age discrimination. Most bourbons might age in the barrel for eight to 12 years or more, but Lix figures his are ready to drink in less than a week.

Lix makes Cleveland Whiskey, a new brand of bourbon that exemplifies two major trends in American whiskey-making today: the desire to speed up the process and the effort to establish a local identity.

The curmudgeon in me automatically dismisses this as “kids these days can’t even wait for a good bourbon.
