I'm finally getting my feet back under me after two wonderful weeks in Belgium. Here is a handful of things to discuss from the past few weeks. Got any news that I'm might have missed while out of the "office"? Drop a line and let me know.
~ Morgan's Pier, described as a "new concept beer garden", opened on Friday, May 25.
~ Grub Street Philadelphia helps us with what to expect at the evolving Bierstube Underbar.
~ Joe Sixpack shared with us some insights behind this year's Brotherly Suds collaborative creation for Philly Beer Week 2012.
EASTERN PA, NJ, DE, AND OTHER NEARBY PARTS OF MID-ATLANTIC
~ Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant announced plans for its tenth location & in Voorhees, NJ. When I first read it, I saw "V" and first thought, "wow, interesting that they're going into Vineland, NJ!" But, then I re-read and thought, "hey, that's one location I'd guessed a while back".
~ Path being cleared for bigger things ahead at Dogfish Head
~ Another score from the recent expansion of Tröegs in to their new Hershey, Pa. location. H/T to Beerpulse.com
~ A lot of new beer brewing in upstate Pennsylvania at the new Susquehanna Brewing Company. Catch up with all the details on their company blog.
~ Some interesting news from Victory to show that with Headwaters Pale Ale, sometimes it's about the beer and other times, it's not as much about the beer.
THE REST OF PLANET BEER
~ Remember Chris Leonard from days of General Lafayette Inn & Brewery? He's resurfaced in Texas (Missouri City, just to make it a bit confusing) outside of Houston. His plan is to open Fort Bend Brewing Company later this year. From a recent Facebook posting, he says "...Fort Bend beer should be everywhere in the Houston area by mid-fall. We're expecting our 30-bbl brew house to be delivered in late July, installed by September, and cranking out beer before October."
