Tria Taproom’s Happy Hour Starts Tonight
Tria Taproom is now hosting happy hour. The all draft Taproom is featuring breweries, cideries and even wineries within 100 miles of 20th and Walnut. The 100 Mile Happy Hour runs from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Thursday. And to kick off the start of happy hour, Tria will be unveiling a collaborative beer made with Yards Brewing that is called Tri-S-A, a special version of Yards ESA. Yards founder Tom Kehoe will be on hand from 5 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, July 26th for the tapping.
Tria founder Jon Myerow has been a fan of Yards ESA from Yards earliest days in Manayunk. The Tr-S-A adds bready Thomas Fawcett’s Halcyon malt and citrusy-earthy Boadicea hops and a few other special touches to round out the beer. During the tapping, 3 Yards beers will be on special.

It’s business as usual at V Street, though they are holding a spot for Pope Francis.
If your Facebook feed is anything like mine this week it has been nothing but Pope maps and port-a-potties. That and some good people who are actually embracing the Pope coming to town and celebrating like its a blizzard.
Here are some of our favorite bar happenings this weekend.

Tonight, you can get a beer from one of only 10 certified Trappist ale producers–and the only one in the United States.
Spencer Trappist Ale, brewed by the brothers at Saint Joseph’s Abbey in Massachusetts, is the real deal. The monks traveled all throughout Europe, visiting Trappist breweries like Chimay and Westmalle and learning how to get it just right. The result? Well, I’ll let them describe it:
Spencer Trappist Ale, Spencer Brewery at Saint Joseph’s Abbey (Spencer, MA · 6.5%) Inspired by the traditional refectory ales known as patersbier (“fathers’ beer” in Flemish), these relatively sessionable beers are brewed by the monks for their dinner table and are typically only available at the monastery. This flavorful golden ale is fruity, with dry finish and a light hop bitterness.
It’s being poured right now, and will be until late tonight. So if you’re anxious to taste the first-ever American Trappist ale, head on over and see what all the fuss is about.
