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).
~ Philly Beer Week, duh.
~ The annual Brew-vitational awards are out there for public consumption. Get to know some of the region's best beers.
~ The Philadelphia Inquirer did a bang-up job with a Food section this past Thursday that was dedicated almost exclusively to great topics of great beer.
~ Thanks to John Doherty for passing along this hot tip.
EASTERN PA, NJ, DE, AND OTHER NEARBY PARTS OF MID-ATLANTIC
~ Now in cans, how 'bout that? One mighty fine beer indeed.
~ Speaking of cans, I must say that this doesn't surprise me. I have a case at home and, while the beer is delicious, my jury is still out on the long-term viability of this package.
~ "Worst news ever" in the comments section is something I completely understand.
THE REST OF PLANET BEER
~ Quite a disappointing turn of events. I don't know if I should direct you to the story or not. Really is quite disappointing. I'm really growing tired of the claims of "protecting brands" that take it to this extreme.
~ This looked like a great event from afar. Jay Brooks did a nice job wrapping it up.
~ Let's close this week with a 15 minute video about the past and present around northern California that is worth your time.
