Local 44 in West Philly is having two noteworthy events over Memorial Day weekend for those of us who are not lucky enough to be heading to the shore.
First, Local 44 is giving 20% off all can prices at The Bottle Shop from Saturday, May 25 through Monday, May 27 so you can stock up for the weekend. Naturally, they have labeled the event as “cantastic,” which is exactly what it is.

Kraftwork isn’t the only bar turning its tap handles over to an out-of-town brewer today. Starting at 4 p.m. this afternoon Fishtown’s Barcade will have 18 taps of Clown Shoes beers on tap. Some of Clown Shoes’ ingredients are unusual. There’s chocolate malt, ancho chili, cinnamon, and vanilla in their Chocolate Sombrero Stout and Clown Shoes Genghis Pecan is a porter brewed with brown sugar and roast pecans. Not sure if we believe this one but we’d still try it, Clown Shoes Vampire Slayer, an imperial Stout brewed with holy water, ash, and vampire killing stakes.
Over in West Philadelphia, Local 44 will be showcasing draft beers from Great Divide Brewing Company. The bar will be pouring Titan, Hercules, Orabelle, Heyday, Nomad, Colette, Chocolate Yeti, 19th Anniversary and some rare Vintage Yeti starting at 6 p.m.. Next door at the Local 44 Bottle Shop from 6-8 p.m., there will be complementary samples of other Great Divide beers and head brewer, Taylor Rees.
