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

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).


~ I think I know where you'll want to be on April 23. Take a look at the beer list then let me know.

~ Some awesome shirts that remind you Philly Beer Week is coming. Plus, a charity angle as well.

~ Grow up?! Wonder if that includes me?

~ Tomcattin' around on Delaware Avenue.

~ Unfortunately, this is more like a see-what-you-might-have-missed link. Interesting enough, though, I figured to still share at this late date.

~ Will Peggy three-peat?

~ You might know that I get to Pittsburgh quite a bit. Here's a good-sounding reason to stop by and check out Pittsburgh Beer Week.

~ Tickets on sale soon. They'll go fast as usual.

~ Cicerone program continues to grow and do good things.

~ Wow, and I thought the U.S. beer market had issues. Try this one for size from the UK.

~ Whither extreme

~ Excellent perspective. Here's a tease: "But I am not naming it a Session IPA. It’s simply an IPA, because when I formulated the recipe, I wasn’t thinking of how I could dumb down a 6 – 7% ABV IPA..."

~ And just when you thought the topic of session beer riles people's another good debate starter.
