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).
~ After last week's desperate search for brews news around Philly, here's a nice guide to get you primed for Philly Beer Week.
~ Yeah, Philly's on this list where it belongs. I'm not going to debate the placement, but no doubt it belongs on a list of the country's top eight.
~ And a few more good bits about Philly's beer scene.
~ Some are really excited about Shiner coming to town. I'm not so much, well not at least for the Bock. I've been to Texas enough to know that I'm rather indiffernt about the Bock. The Hefeweizen and Black Lager, on the other hand, hit me right where I like 'em.
EASTERN PA, NJ, DE, AND OTHER NEARBY PARTS OF MID-ATLANTIC
~ I'm a big fan of the Legend Pilsner too. I know a lot of people like Pilsners (and Pilseners too), but often times we have difficulty describing our love for them.
THE REST OF PLANET BEER
~ Wish I'd written this, as it's been on my mind quite a bit in the past couple of years (then why wouldn't I just come out and say so? I know, I know) "when US craft will stop trying to pretend all brewers are small start ups"
~ Anyone who knows me knows why I love this perspective..from a brewer no less
~ You technical brewers will probably really dig this.
~ You ever hear me tell of that bar in San Francisco that I would have like to try this approach to bill resolution?
~ Sigh, sure give me one of those boutique beers, I suppose.
