If you want to try a new drink, now’s the time. Your first beer is free if you’re one of the first 100 guests at Brauhaus Schmitz, or at least while supplies last today, Wednesday, August 5th. Moral: Wednesday is not the day for fashionable lateness.
At 5 p.m., Brauhaus Schmitz will be the only bar in the United States to tap Frankenheim Alt. The beer is a German top-fermented lager that fine folk at Brauhaus describe as “copper in color, malty and sweet with subtle fruit notes.” The Dusseldorf brew hasn’t been available in Philadelphia since 2002. Brauhaus owner Doug Hager has been working for over two years to bring the rare beer back to Philadelphia.
Going forward, Frankenheim Alt will be available in 14-oz mugs for $5.50, and in growlers if you want to take it home.

Hey, did you guys know that its National Sandwich Month? Well it is, and we’re celebrating by bringing you the best sandwich news we can find.
Yesterday, it was an up-close-and-personal look at the Gizmo from Paesano’s. Today, it’s the new Local Deals promotion from Caviar that’s going on right now. In keeping with our theme, we thought we’d do a round-up of all the best sandwiches you could have delivered to you until Friday with no delivery charge.
So get out your stretchy pants, folks. It's going to be that kind of week.
Usually when we talk about food news here, we tell you what’s new and cool, and then we tell you where to go to eat it. This post, however, requires little more than a trip to Barnes & Noble, or (for the remarkably lazy, like myself) an Amazon account.
Philadelphia and the nearby areas have some pretty amazing food and drink, and now many of the recipes are down on paper for your cooking pleasure. We’ve talked cookbooks in the past, but it’s time for a round up of all the delicious (local) stuff that’s been printed since January.
So order a book, even order your groceries, open a bottle of wine. With these books, all the awesomeness of the city's food scene can now happen right in your own kitchen. And you know what's better? Even if you burn it all, you're never too far from the recipe's source, allowing you to give up at any point and make nothing more than a reservation.
