Gone Drinkin’

gone-drinkingAs we mentioned a couple weeks back, we here at Foobooz World HQ have been saddled with the herculean task of choosing the best local beer in the Philly region. We took input from you, our besotted readership. We polled our experts and professional drinkers. We asked around the office (because, not for nothing, we’re still journalists here, and journalists know a thing or two about bending the elbow). And what we finally came up with was a list of about 40-some beers worthy of considering.

Well, today is tasting day, and as you can see from the photo above, we have our work cut out for us. And I’m guessing that by the time we work our way through all of these bottles, cans and growlers, not a lot else is going to get done for the rest of the day. But hey, this is the lord’s work we’re doing here. And since someone has to do it, why not us?

So if Foobooz seems a little bit lighter on content today than usual, now you know why. We’ll see you all on the other side…
