PBW 2009: Philadelphia's Beer Scene in the News

Over the past couple of weeks, mainstream media in the Philadelphia market has sure been awash in craft beer scene reporting. Most of it has been geared towards and inspired by Philly Beer Week. No matter the intent, the message has almost uniformly been very positive and likely a very good thing for the recognition and acceptance of (good) beer by the vox populi. Here's a quick index.....
