You can count on a thunderstorm to pump up business at a brewpub. Especially at the shore. So it was no surprise in the founding manger of Dogfish Head Brewing here, beneath canoes suspended from the rafters, that regulars stayed put, ordering extra rounds, when the skies opened up last week. On this particular day, they included a vacationing industrial engineer from Boeing, a gray-haired fellow who'd biked up from Ocean City, Md., and a guy in a Beeriotic Table T-shirt, each one a Dogfish disciple - each one in a small way responsible for an extraordinary craft-beer success story being played out in the ugly teeth of the recession: Dogfish Head was doing a bulletproof business.

YOU MIGHT remember the Daily News report a couple of months back about my diplomatic mission to Lithuania, where I spread the good word about American craft beer through the U.S. Embassy in Vilnius. Well, there's a second chapter in my efforts to spread peace through beer. I'm happy to report that Lithuania is coming to Philadelphia. Specifically, it's arriving in the form of next week's 37th annual Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show, the guest-artist program of which this year highlights 23 Lithuanian artists.

Scott Rudich got a text one November night from his pal Rich DiLiberto, who was in a bar drinking bad beer and listening to a bad cover band. "We should either start a brewery or a band," DiLiberto wrote. Rudich's reply: "Neither of us play instruments. " And so it was that the grains of Round Guys Brewery were set to steep. Of course, that dream would ferment for nearly 31/2 years before these two pharmaceutical workers would finally open the doors to their Lansdale brewery in early March, when Rudich could legitimately pick up the phone and say with a wink: "Hello, I am the yeast whisperer.

As many as 30,000 beer lovers are expected to sip their way through the brewing bacchanalia that is Philly Beer Week beginning tomorrow, with more than 670 events across the region. There will be tastings of high-end craft beers, pairing dinners at gastropubs, even a 60-mile bike-and-drinking tour of local breweries during the 10-day celebration. More than 400 revelers made it to the Grey Lodge Pub's "Friday the Firkinteenth" in February. So how many will make the pilgrimage to Northeast Philly to quaff beer from firkins, the small kegs of artisan beer that drain by gravity, when Friday the 13th falls during the second annual Beer Week?

IN HONOR OF the centennial anniversary of its sinking on April 5, 1912, the Franklin Institute offers "Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition," Saturday through April 7, 2013. The show illustrates the ship's conception, aftermath and, of course, its ill-fated maiden voyage. What separates this from many other Titanic centenary activities is its focus on the personal stories associated with certain artifacts. Objects include a set of tiny perfume bottles - some still containing their original perfumes - a salesman was taking to the U.S., and the iconic cherub statue that graced the ship's Grand Staircase, an artifact never before seen in museums.

Around midday recently at Spruce Street Harbor Park on Penn's Landing, families picnicked along the edge of the promenade, young adults and children swung lightly in hammocks or played games, and couples sat side by side reading in Adirondack chairs shaded under the trees tinseled with color-changing LED lights. Spruce Street Harbor Park was created by the Delaware River Waterfront Corp. and Groundswell Design Group with a $310,000 grant from the nonprofit coalition ArtPlace America.

As a teenager stacking barrels after school at his family's brewery in Pottsville, Pa., Richard L. Yuengling Jr. was encouraged by plant workers to avoid a career in the family business. America's taste for national brands such as Budweiser, Coors, and Miller, they said, was going to put them all out of a job. Undeterred, Yuengling bought D.G Yuengling & Son Inc. from his father in 1985, and built it into the maker of the country's best-selling craft beer brand. As the company's value soared in the last decade amid a surge in demand for craft brews, Yuengling became a billionaire.
