This Week in Beer News: MillerCoors Labor Dispute, Gluten-Free Gets Popular, and the Bruery Accidentally Spoils Its Beer

You're only halfway through the week and already that celebratory barrel-aged you saved for the weekend is calling your name, but first make sure it's not spoiled from a Lactobacillus infection. Let another edition of This Week In Beer News hold you over to the weekend.

This week went relatively smoothly compared to last: no insane break-ins, stabbings, or beatings in the name of beer -- although with the frenzy that is the growing craft beer revolution, you can never completely rule it out.

However, some things are getting serious with the rising popularity of gluten-free beers, a labor dispute with one of America's largest production breweries and Wal-Mart's hoping to strike gold with more beer sales.
