Weekly Brew Bits Update: 5/21/12

More in the life and times of great beer as experienced in the craft beer segment.

~ Philly Beer Week is coming and so is the very special collaboration beer from Iron Hill's Chris LaPierre and Brasserie Dupont in Belgium. Vanberg & DeWulf has the details over at their site.

~ Had you heard that Iron Hill came back from San Diego with the Small Brewpub of the Year award at the 2012 World Beer Cup?

~ Here's a doozie from Scotland. Wow. Makes you think back to the whole Anheuser-Busch/Brew Masters/Discover Channel flap last year. As well as much of what you've come to despise in the behemoth corporate brewers. UPDATE: The Financial Times has a few reflections on the whole mess and its portrayal of the changing times of public relations.

~ Reflections upon one of our favorite vacation destinations, Puerto Rico, and its apparently growing beer scene.

~ From June 27 to July 21, Rick Lyke and the Pints for Prostates will be campaigning along with the Flying Saucer chain of beer bars across the south to bring awareness to something that Rick knows all too well about. Belgian beer for a good cause sounds like a great idea. If you find yourself near a Flying Saucer location from the Carolinas to Texas, be sure to support this great cause.
