Weekly Second-Hand Brews News Update: 8/17/13

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).


~ The Earth Bread + Brewery audio tour stop is now up on Basic Brewing Radio. And, so too is the video version of the grand Tour in case you missed it.

~ William Reed and Tom Peters show up in the New Yorker.

~ Couple of heady news nuggets coming out D.C. and immediate locales.

~ How Boxcar got rolling.

~ Lot of Downingtown love and shout-outs.

~ More about the new digs for old Flying Fish friend, Casey Hughes.

~ Jack Curtin shared a pretty cool link.

~ Good hunches say that there will be some pretty darn good beer made here in the future.

~ Civility? Online? Oh, the snark. Make it stop!

~ So speaking of civility, this is one of the more civil and informative string of forum comments to a reasonable question than I've seen in some time.
