A healthy variety of news from the Philadelphia region and beyond. Some fun, some controversial. Enjoy your weekend reading. Later, go grab a beer with friends; it shouldn't be too hard this weekend to find a beer event to your liking, right?
~ It will always be Dickens Inn to me.
~ Cool news I picked up by way of Grub Street.

EASTERN PA, NJ, DE, AND OTHER NEARBY PARTS OF MID-ATLANTIC
~ The Monkeys are out of the barrel.
~ The privatization of Pennsylvania's LCB. Here we go again. Next verse, same as the last how many? Or is there a new day coming?
~ A mid-Atlantic guy winds up in Sarasota.
~ The 1107th richest man in the world. Or the 359th in the U.S. At $1.3B, not too shabby.
THE REST OF PLANET BEER
~ Firestone and barrels. We've been saying that for a while. Now, look what they've been up to.
~ Excellent quote: "As soon as you say you want to be more like wine, the battle is lost"
~ Please let's hope this goes away, because it doesn't deserve to be a real case.
~ A fine debate to discuss the "I still don't get it"-crowd.
~ If you're citing Bitter American, that's a pretty good start in my mind.
~ If I ever run the Boston Marathon (not very likely, given the challenging qualification times), I'd be very happy to see this beer at the finish line.
~ This heart-warming quote amongst other exclusive material at BeerPulse.com (“Our belief is to focus on our own history of innovation rather than running around trying to copy other people.”)
