Huntingdon Valley's Double Eagle Malt Fuels Innovation in PSU's Brewing Program

Double Eagle Malt, a Huntingdon Valley-based brewery, has made headlines in Craft Beer & Brewing for its significant contribution to the craft brewing education at Penn State Berks. By supplying barley for the college's craft-brewing certificate program, Double Eagle Malt has played a pivotal role in fostering the next generation of craft brewers. The program celebrated its first cohort of 10 students graduating in December 2023, marking a significant milestone in both education and the promotion of local brewing ingredients.

One of the highlights of the program was the creation of the "Land Grant" beer, a testament to the importance of locally sourced ingredients in the craft brewing process. This land beer, named in honor of Penn State's status as a land-grant university, was made entirely from ingredients grown and harvested in the vicinity, emphasizing the value of community and sustainability in brewing.

The brewing process for the "Land Grant" beer was particularly notable for its use of open fermentation. This method, as explained by program participant Brian Mills, allows the yeast to express its unique characteristics more fully, contributing to the depth and complexity of the beer's flavor profile. Following the initial open fermentation, the beer underwent a secondary fermentation in a conical fermentor to complete the process, further enhancing the yeast's contribution to the beer's final taste.

Engage and Learn: Upper Moreland Police's Efforts to Connect with Residents

The Upper Moreland Police Department is engaging with the community through two notable initiatives aimed at fostering a closer relationship between law enforcement and residents. The first event, "Coffee with a Cop," is scheduled to take place at the Willow Grove YMCA on February 28, from 9:00 am to 11:00 am. This free event offers an informal setting where community members can meet local police officers, ask questions, and discuss concerns over coffee. The initiative seeks to build trust and improve police-community relations in a relaxed environment.

Furthermore, the Upper Moreland Police Department is organizing a Citizens Police Academy, a six-week program running from March 6 to April 24. The academy is designed to provide residents with a deeper understanding of police operations, procedures, and the challenges law enforcement faces. Participants will have the opportunity to learn directly from police officers, gaining insights into various aspects of policing, including crime scene investigation, traffic enforcement, and emergency response.

Jim Cramer: From Wyndmoor to Wall Street, a Pennsylvania Native's Financial Journey

Jim Cramer, a prominent figure in the investment world and a native of Wyndmoor, has carved out a significant presence in financial media and investment analysis. Known for his energetic and informative style on CNBC’s “Mad Money” and as a co-anchor on “Squawk on the Street,” Cramer has been a guiding voice for countless investors navigating the complexities of the stock market.

Cramer's interest in the stock market sparked at a young age, leading him to memorize corporate stock symbols and manage an imaginary portfolio. This early passion paved the way for a distinguished career in finance. After graduating from Springfield Township High School in 1973, Cramer pursued higher education at Harvard University, where he not only excelled academically but also led The Harvard Crimson as its editor in chief during his senior year.

Before making his mark in financial journalism, Cramer showcased his investment acumen as a hedge fund manager and founder of Cramer Berkowitz. Over 14 years, he achieved an impressive 24 percent compounded rate of return after all fees. Cramer retired from his hedge fund in 2001, concluding his tenure with one of the industry's most enviable records, including a remarkable 36 percent-plus year in 2000.

In a notable personal move, Cramer returned to Pennsylvania in 2021, purchasing a house in Quakertown after decades of living in New York. Expressing a preference for his home state, Cramer’s affection for Pennsylvania is evident. “I like Pennsylvania more than I like New York,” he shared with the Philadelphia Business Journal. “I just love it.” This relocation underscores Cramer's enduring connection to his roots and his appreciation for the Keystone State.

As Cramer continues to influence the world of finance through his analysis, television appearances, and written works, his journey from a stock market-obsessed child in Wyndmoor to a nationally recognized investment guru is a testament to his dedication, expertise, and Pennsylvania pride.

Singles Awareness Day (SAD) is a lighthearted response to Valentine's Day. It's a day for those who are single to embrace and celebrate their status, focusing on self-love and empowerment rather than feeling left out of the Valentine's Day festivities. The day encourages singles to appreciate themselves, their independence, and their freedom, highlighting the positives of being single and the importance of self-care and self-appreciation.
