Weekly Brew Bits Update: 1/2/12

As you begin to come out of your holiday craze and daze, here are some things that you may have missed along the way.

~ Tired Hands continues to make progress...progress that is rapidly picking up pace. Before we know it, there'll be a new opening. This one, in a location desperately needing one. Note to self: get back to Ardmore. Link here back to previous pictures on The Brew Lounge or Link here to new ones from the brewery's Facebook page.

~ But, while Tired Hands and others continue to trudge through their pre-opening construction "fun", Iron Hill has plowed quickly through the last few weeks and opened their ninth location in Chestnut Hill for soft opening dinners this past week. I'll have a few more pictures posted separately here in the next day or so. Until then, go and check out their Facebook photo page and prepare for a grand opening to the public this coming Wednesday, January 4.

~ Have you caught my column over at The Washington Times Communities recently? I took a stab at a Top 10 Brewers list and a Top 10 Craft Beer Themes of 2011. A Top 10 Beers list is coming soon; stay tuned.

~ Jay Brooks uncovered a Philadelphia History of Beer poster. I love these kind of illustrative capsules. Go check it out.

~ In last week's wrap-up post, "KL" commented about progress at Bucks County's Free Will Brewing and Neshaminy Creek Brewing. If you missed it, check back via this link.

~ 2011 left and not a minute too soon. I didn't find anything noteworthy about New Year's Eve to link you to, so let's get on with 2012.

Good luck with the top 10 beers of 2011. Be interesting to see what you think.
