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).
~ TV Brew Dogs is coming soon.
~ Brauhaus Schmitz recently welcomed Andechs to Philly and Jack Curtin reminisced.
~ I like that McGillin's is a great place to drink great beer with friends (not to mention the place's history), but that it's also a curator of Philadelphia's history.
~ Certainly looks like an interesting addition to Chinatown.
EASTERN PA, NJ, DE, AND OTHER NEARBY PARTS OF MID-ATLANTIC
~ Former Dogfish Bryan is moving on again.
~ This one sounds pretty baseless and frivolous.
~ Whereas, the big bad brewery needs a bit of comeuppance in this case.
~ And on a nicer note, solid Weyerbacher reppin' from Natalie DeChico.
THE REST OF PLANET BEER
~ The dialogue about growth at Russian River continues.
~ I begin by applauding the opening sentences and cringing at the last.
~ A well-reasoned discussion of growth and quality from someone qualified to do so.
~ Parallels drawn in the ugly side of the beer business related to a story with a sad outcome.
~ When old becomes new and sometimes old again.
