We’re also prepping for American Craft Beer Week [May 11-17] coverage — if you want your events posted, send the info to bottlescansclaphands@yahoo.com. But today we’re continuing our new Tuesday Tradition, going light on the words and heavy on the pictures/links.

Two beer stories worth a click-through:
