Monday Morning Second-Hand Brews News Update: 11/5/12

I made another weekly list of interesting stories to share with you. Share the link love and read 'em up.

~ Bathtub Beer Fest is coming up on 11/15. Past beer events with the National Constitution Center as a venue have been well-received and praised by beer-loving attendees. This one is being held in conjunction with the exhibit, "American Spirits: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition," which runs from October 19, 2012 to April 28, 2013.

~ Beer Yard brought us this long overdue news a couple of weeks ago.

~ What am I missing? Time for you to hit the comments section below and chime in to share something noteworthy in and around Philadelphia from the past couple of weeks.

~ Victory has a bunch of beer from the barrel that it would like to share with you.. on 11/21.

~ Grub Street out of Philly pointed us to the impact of "Superstorm" Sandy on Shangy's in Emmaus.

~ And, Alexander D. Mitchell IV is keeping us up-to-date on the status of a few places around the region.

~ Jack Curtin pointed us in the direction of an article at Business Week.

~ The Atlantic has a piece with a similiar theme.

~ I find this article utterly fascinating. Makes me wish I comprehend science better than I do. Otherwise, I might understand more than 20% of what the article contains. Even that might be an exaggeration. Still, check it out and appreciate the science that goes into your beer.

~ Another interesting piece, this one looking into the business/political/taxation side of beer and which presidential candidate may hold the most promise for a successful future for small brewers.

~ Chuck Cook shares with us some of the beer cellar news that I remember Van Roy sharing with us when we were at Cantillon earlier this year. Good stuff.

~ Interesting follow-up news of a settlement in a legal case involving August Busch IV.

~ A fun story about wine reviewing and the words used to describe. Can't say there isn't big-time crossover to the beer world as well.
