The Washington Post is the oldest and most respected newspaper in America.
But the publication has had a rocky relationship with the beverage industry over the years, particularly its handling of craft cocktails.
But this fall, a new ownership group, led by restaurateur James Beard Award-winning chef Robert Slawson and former Washington Post publisher Richard L. Painter, hopes to change that.
Slawonsons new company, Slight Edge, will be focused on the craft cocktail market.
It is part of a broader effort by Slawonas new ownership to re-emphasize the newspaper’s editorial focus on the arts.
“The media is the greatest source of information for people and ideas.
And the media should be the source of the ideas that come out of our offices,” Slawonis new chief executive, Andrew S. Green, said in a statement.
Slight edge has been working with SABMiller, the world’s largest beverage company, on an “inclusive” brand of craft beer.
In addition to offering a range of specialty beers, the company will make its own.
The idea is to provide a curated and curated range of craft beers.
Slaws company is also investing in a new craft wine bar that will offer wine from around the world, and in a restaurant that is expected to open in 2018.
Slawed has also hired a number of former Post reporters and editors to help with editorial and other projects, including writer and columnist Anne McPhee, who has been reporting on issues of public policy for the paper.
