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 escorted the Basic Brewing Radio/Video crew around the Philly area during the National Homebrewers Conference. The first stop on our tour was with Chris LaPierre at Iron Hill in Maple Shade. Here's the audio version of the stop; video to follow later.
EASTERN PA, NJ, DE, AND OTHER NEARBY PARTS OF MID-ATLANTIC
~ A nice profile of someone we know pretty well.
~ Both Beer-Stained Letter (also drops a bit of Casey Hughes reference and news) and Foobooz noticed that the Flying Fish Tasting Room is now open.
THE REST OF PLANET BEER
~ Always something interesting coming out of Petaluma, Calif. This time, Jack Curtin took notice and passed it along to us.
