Weekly Brew Bits Update: 5/14/12

Spanning the world of beer news, from Philadelphia to India

PHILADELPHIA
~ Really, it took us a whole month to become surprised by this turn of events?

~ On a brighter note, it may be Delaware Avenue, but I have higher hopes for this newly announced venue. Partially because Fergie Carey is involved in it. Here's one link to the venue's website and one to Collin Flatt, over at Eater.com

~ The "session debate" rages on, encouraged by our own local Lew Bryson. A recent posting of his is as good of a place as any to begin.

EASTERN PA, NJ, DE, AND OTHER NEARBY PARTS OF MID-ATLANTIC
~ Some more Goat Race goodness courtesy of Jack Curtin -- here and here and here and here -- who seemed to apologize for an over-coverage of the event. Probably just compensating for those of us who were not there to do so. But, really, tell me there's anything out there quite like it.

THE REST OF PLANET BEER
~ Am I the only one that missed this news from Belgium?

~ Is drinking on the job getting a Mad Men boost?

~ India meets craft beer, southern California-style. Courtesy of The Beer Wench, I'll be looking forward to hearing more from the hinted future interview.

~ And, this just in....Independence Brewing from India (see last bullet) has a kickstarter campaign, if you are so inclined to pitch in.

Nice to still see you posting even though you're in Belgium. =)

As far as the Drie Fonteinen thing, it stinks the lambikodroom is being closed but the restaurant is still open at least. My wife and I are still going to visit the area anyway.
