Weekly Second-Hand Brews News Update: 4/6/13

I long ago lost the ability to keep up with even half the beer news out there in the wild and wacky world of craft beer. There was a time I attempted daily (or even more frequent) updates with interesting tidbits from around the brewniverse along with small contributions of my own thoughts.

That has yielded to my weekly updates that you'll find here every Saturday morning with some of what I consider to be some of the more interesting news out there that you might like to add to your weekend reading list (or Monday morning at work, depending upon your preference).

Sort of all over the map here this week with no one particular theme that sticks out, perhaps other than the Craft Brewers Conference and some industry insights from here and there.


~ More beer on South Street

~ Jay still has a fondness for his East Coast roots.

~ I like this approach, though this segment of the beverage-consuming public can still be a tough nut to crack.

~ A small set of photos from the craft team at Origlio Beverage while attending Craft Brewers Conference in D.C. this week.

~ More growth in Hershey

~ Has Dr. McGovern unearthed the final episode?!

~ More on Pa. privatization

~ Lew approves

~ Certainly a significant piece of news for Sonoma County.

~ It's baseball season again, which must mean it's beer season again. Or, wait, isn't it always?

~ Honored to make the Beer Pulse tweet roll. Perhaps my twittering skills are progressing.

~ While in Washington for CBC, the conference wasn't the only beer topic in town.

~ Swell job with the video recorder at CBC

~ Local Tom Cizauskas' insight to CBC

~ Then, The Full Pint shares some statistics.

~ Plus, finally, a bit of contention and, perhaps, mixed message coming out of DC last week.
