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).
~ Manyaunk is growing. The brewery, thankfully not the neighborhood. Continue to be impressed with what head brewer, Doug Marchakitus has done since coming over from Iron Hill four years ago.
~ Our own City Tap House is going on the road.
~ Am frankly surprised it took this long; Sunday brunch is now an option at Dock Street.
EASTERN PA, NJ, DE, AND OTHER NEARBY PARTS OF MID-ATLANTIC
~ Very welcomed, long-awaited news out of DC.
~ Great info about a great happening today in Baltimore.
~ Creeping closer to Philly — and that's a very good thing if you didn't know (at least it is if you live somewhere in the vicinity).
~ A chocolate peanut butter porter certainly raises eyebrows, but is a huge hit nonetheless.
~ Creating a Ruckus.
~ I knew there was a lot of room in their new facility, but...wow!
THE REST OF PLANET BEER
~ Striking gold.
~ Always good to have a backup plan.
~ Thanks Lew! I'd received a note on this and forgot to share with all here. Tis truly a great thing when a brewery takes the bold leap of making a low alcohol beer to mark a significant event like an anniversary. Kudos North Coast.
~ The Beer Odyssey continues. Can't wait to hear him filing reports from abroad.
~ If you'd like to catch up on GABF in pictures, this is one of the best places to head.
~ A different take on GABF. Thanks Wench!
~ Are there room for thousands more? I'm a skeptic but open to convincing.
~ And, on this note, I'll just stop this weekly wrap-up right here. Agreed: just stop.
