Tonight, Wednesday, November 30th at Barcade in Fishtown, it’s an event billed as Allagash vs. Dogfish Head. And when these two premier breweries battle, beer drinkers win. Among the rarities, Allagash Confluence and Interlude from 2013, plus 2015 vintage Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA and a 2014 keg of Worldwide Stout.
Calling all beer lovers: if you’re into funky, mouth-puckering beers, we’ve got something that may spark your interest.
Scott Schroeder’s menu includes a fried clam roll, pork and clam steamers, grill clams, raw clams and more. At 7:30 p.m., Allagash founder Rob Tod will be arriving to join the debut.

It appears that this year’s supply of Russian River Pliny the Younger has just about run dry. Philly Tap Finder’s last published tapping happened just a few hours ago. But since this is Philadelphia, our taps certainly haven’t run dry of great and in several cases, rare beer.
Bishop’s Collar, which poured the city’s last known keg of Pliny still has plenty of great IPAs pouring and is worth a trip today. The Sidecar’s monthly High Gravity Night is also tonight and includes high alcohol favorites like Bear Republic Apex, Bell’s Hopslam and Mikkeller Monk’s Elixr.
Resurrection Ale House on Grays Ferry Avenue is turning four and they’re celebrating with a special lineup of beers from Allagash Brewing. Starting at 5 p.m., the beers will be pouring and complementary passed bites will be coming out of the kitchen.
Now if you show up before 5 p.m., you’ll get to experience a new Tuesday promotion. Every Tuesday, fried chicken will be the only thing on the menu until 5 p.m. That means fried chicken without the fear of it running out. And on Tuesdays, you can combine an order of fried chicken and a can of Resurrection Ale from Brewer’s Art for $18.
Southwark says goodbye to summer tonight with an Allagash clambake. The $35 per person dinner features three courses plus a couple of Allagash beers, including the rarely seen Allagash Golden Brett. Not made from Brett Hull’s hockey gloves, this beer is instead Allagash’s first 100 percent brett fermented beer. Expect lots of juicy pineapple notes in the beer.
Allagash mid-Atlantic sales manager Suzanne Woods has an area spanning from Philadelphia to DC. That means a lot of car time and recently, lots of Afro-Cuban, reggae, ska and calypso on Pandora. So tonight at 8 p.m., it is Bongogash at Varga Bar and eight great Allagash beers on tap.
Allagash and Chestnut7 are teaming up tonight in Chestnut Hill for a Reserve Beer Dinner that will include some Allagash rarities. The cost is $45 and will be offered all night.
From 5 to 8 p.m. tonight, March 15th at the Corner Foodery, Suzanne Woods (aka the Beer Lass) will be pouring free samples of Allagash beers. Woods will be pouring White, Tripel, Dubbel by the bottle and there will be Allagash Grand Cru on draft. Chef Jon Taus will be serving up some mortadella and a couple of charcuterie dishes as well.
