This Saturday: Hang Out With Tired Hands Brewing Co.

Tired Hands Brewing Co

This Saturday, April 18th, Jean Broillet and the rest of the brew team at Tired Hands Brewing Company are hitting up five different bars, showing off beer brewed from their operational (but not yet open to the public) Fermentaria.

The brewers will be at Local 44 from 12-1 pm, Strangelove’s from 2-3 pm, Standard Tap from 4-5 pm, Memphis Taproom from 6-7 pm and Alla Spina from 8-9 pm. They’ll be pouring their popular HopHands as well as debuting Rutilant, their new IPA brewed with Nelson Sauvin and Cascade Hops.

Plan on meeting up with them at one spot or another. Just don’t follow them around all day. That’s stalking.

Memphis Taproom Beer Garden Opening Saturday, April 18

The Memphis Taproom Beergarden is just waiting to be filled with happy beer-drinkers.

The Memphis Taproom Beer Garden is just waiting to be filled with happy beer-drinkers.

It’s that time of year again when the weather decides to get drunk and say it’s cool to have 40 degree mornings, 68 degree afternoons and violent thunderstorms. But we put up with this transition stage for the same reason we put up with adolescence: it’s unpleasant now, but soon it will be over and things will be better.

To celebrate the onset of almost summer (did I just jinx it? Sorry…), Memphis Taproom is celebrating its seventh anniversary with a special draft list inside, and a  grand re-opening of its outdoor beer garden on Saturday, April 18th at noon.

The beer garden will feature a brand new menu for their truck. Expanding beyond just hot dogs, the new menu offers “truck fries” (fries covered in ground beef, fried onions, cheddar cheese and “truck sauce”) and a New England clam roll. The beer list for the season is also set to be released in the coming week. Additionally, every Thursday there will be Beer Garden Quizzo at 6pm.

Get ready, it’s almost beer garden season. We promise.

It’s Time for Pliny the Younger in Philadelphia

Pliny the Younger – It never lasts long, even at the Russian River Brewing Co.

Every year Pliny the Younger tappings consume many beer lovers in the Philadelphia area. Philadelphia is the only city east of the Mississippi that gets the super limited  release of the Russian River Triple IPA. That scarcity makes the tapping events an even bigger deal for beer nerds up and down the East Coast.

Looking for weekend drinking options? Perhaps you’ll find inspiration in Draft Magazine’s 2014 Best Beer Bars list. Six area bars make the list, which has been reimagined for 2014. In past years, having a ton of tap lines might matter, but today Draft Magazine defines a great beer bar as more than that. “We needed to walk out of these places saying, “Now there’s a bar that really, really cares about your experience with beer.”

In the Philadelphia area, six bars made the list including two from Brendan Hartranft and Leigh Maida.

blackout brunchThe Cambridge – Since you’ll surely be up and shopping by 4 a.m., you’ll be ready for a Bloody Mary by 11:30. And that works out well since that’s when the Cambridge opens and your first Bloody is free through 2:30 p.m.

Kraftwork and Sidecar – Both these bars are offering their annual Blackout Brunch. Sidecar is making Thanksgiving leftovers sound appealing with specials like “green bean casserole quiche” and yam soup plus dark beers like Great Lakes Blackout Stout and Goose Island Bourbon Country Stout.
