Welcome 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.
