Republic Brewing? Philly Beer Scene magazine? Both are on the way or I’m the victim of the greatest double-barreled April Fool’s joke ever.

Wow, things are really popping today. These are not April Fool jokes, folks.

There’s a new brewery opening in the ‘burbs next fall:

Republic Brewing Company as the new brewery will be called is to open by November of 2009. It will be located at the site of Ellis Preserve in Newtown Square. Ellis Preserve is a 210-acre master planned development located near the intersection of Route 252 (Newtown Road) and Route 3 (West Chester Pike) in the heart of Newtown Square, Pennsylvania.

BeerValley acquired all of their brewing equipment from the now defunct John Harvard’s Brewhouse in Springfield, PA. “The plan is to have our first brew out by Christmas”…

And a new beer magazine will arrive in June:

Philadelphia’s newest bi-monthly publication dedicated to beer in the city of brotherly love launches June 6, 2009!

Philly Beer Scene Magazine includes great feature articles, beer reviews, bar & restaurant reviews, event calendars, homebrew recipes, cooking with beer, and much more.

More details when I get ’em; both links take you to where you can learn as much as I know at present.
