The news around Philadelphia this week, as expected, is dominated thoroughly by Philly Beer Week. I'm not sure where else to direct you for the comprehensive (or close to it) coverage that this link will give to you. Enjoy!
Now, let's see what other news we can dig up around here.
~ The Brothers Feury (Fork and Nectar) love their beer. They've got another collaborative beer (this one with Yards) ready to go and it debuts this week at their Fork dinner for Philly Beer Week.
EASTERN PA, NJ, DE, AND OTHER NEARBY PARTS OF MID-ATLANTIC
~ Jean Broillet has announced the opening of his long-awaited and eagerly-anticipated Tired Hands Brew Café just outside of Philly in Ardmore, Pa. Reports are that there were enough beer geeks left after all of the PBW events to make opening night a crowded and successful evening. More to come from me on this in the near future.
~ So, yes, this is technically PBW '12-related. But, it's an important back story to the collaboration beer made in Belgium between Iron Hill and Brasserie Dupont. Courtesy of south Jersey's Courier Post.
THE REST OF PLANET BEER
~ I had the pleasure of attending the Sierra Nevada/Russian River collaboration dinner last week at Monk's in Philly, where Brux was being poured for the first time outside of the brewery. Here's a video with Cilurzo and Grossman discussing this much talked about beer.
