Weekly Brew Bits Update: 4/23/12

Some brew bits and bytes from the past week or so that you may have missed and may find interesting.

PHILADELPHIA
~ My 2012 Philly Beer Run is back again this year for Philly Beer Week as a real, and an official, 5-K race — the 5-K Dock Street Philly Beer Run. This excites me, as many of you can imagine. And, I hope you're excited enough as well to sign up and join the fun on June 10, 2012.

~ Ortlieb's is back.....as a Lounge. You know we like Lounges around here at The Brew Lounge.

~ Speaking of Lounges. Last Monday, I was at the release event in the Swann Lounge for the next Dock Street/Four Seasons Hotel collaboration beer, Caliente Golden Ale. I proclaimed it pretty gosh darn good. So did Rich Isaacs, who was also in attendance and wrote about it.

EASTERN PA, NJ, DE, AND OTHER NEARBY PARTS OF MID-ATLANTIC
~ Susquehanna Brewing Company gets things underway in the brewhouse, with a target to open in May 2012.

~ Suburban Beer Week, in the vicinity of 19468, is off and running. See my posting from a few days ago which has a full schedule of tasty events at Craft Ale House, French Quarter Bistro, Lucky Lab Tavern, and Railroad Street Bar & Grille.

~ I haven't talked all that much about the Flying Fish expansion in New Jersey because, well to be honest, it's a bit of hike from where I am on the map, but primarily because Jeff Linkous does a fine job at keeping us up-to-date. Now he's got some more expansion news from a younger brewery, Cape May Brewing Company, further southeast Down-the-Shore and their expansion plans.


THE REST OF PLANET BEER
~ Pittsburgh Craft Beer Week is underway just in time for Penguins and their fans to drown their sorrows.

~ And now for your healthy dose of laughter...or if you need to scratch your head. I can't imagine anyone getting wealthy off this invention, but who knows.

Thanks for the shout out. Really did enjoy the beer and looking forward to the next one.

As far as that Freedom Flask, in college I saw some friends pour beer into ziploc bags to bring it into a movie theater, so maybe them?
