Tap Check: Nodding Head Update (Kind of) and Yards Cape of Good Hope

COGH_B+DWelcome to Tap Check, an occasional update on local beers in and around Philadelphia.

The Internet was all abuzz this morning with a Reddit poster purporting to be SPTR and Sardine Bar owner John Longacre, stating that Nodding Head Brewery was coming to 17th and Snyder, a large warehouse building that Longacre owns. Longacre told several news outlets that it wasn’t true. We knew that, because I came up with the same theory a several months ago. But there are some grains of truth in the connection between Longacre and Nodding Head head-man Curt Decker. Exact details are coming soon.

This Saturday, Yards Brewing is releasing one of my favorite beers of the year. Cape of Good Hope is Yards’ West Coast Double IPA. Each year the recipe changes, but it always worth seeking out. This year’s Cape of Good Hope is made with Ella, Lemondrop, Ahtanum, Motueka, Citra, Chinook and whole flower Columbus hops. It’s being described as having notes of citrus, melon and pine. Can’t wait till Saturday? There’s a sneak peek event tonight at Good Dog. Get there at 5 p.m. for the tapping.

Vault Brewing Is Canning Its Nitro Beers

The Vault Coffee Stout Nitro Can Design

The Vault Coffee Stout Nitro Can Design

Vault Brewing in Yardley, PA has been making quite the name for itself. And now they’re getting really innovative. The brewpub has been working with  Chart Industries and River City Cannery to nitrogenate their beer during the packaging and produce a beer that pours just as well (if not better) than a nitro tap.

The first of Vault’s nitro beers in a can will be its coffee stout. The beer will be released on Sunday, March 29th at the brewpub. This first run will be capped at 2,000 cans as Vault tests reaction to the innovation. The stout will be just $3 per can and they hope to have some left over to release at some bars in and around Philadelphia.

If the release is successful, look for Vault to can more malt-forward beers including other coffee stout varieties and a Sweet Potato Ale in the fall.
