Yards Collaboration Beers Hit the Streets, the Pier and the Pitch

SOB_Tap_Sticker_AlePageYards Brewing is on an exclusive beer kick. Last week they debuted Sons of Ben Rowdy Style Ale. A beer dedicated to Philadelphia Union’s supporters club. And over at Morgan’s Pier, they’ve just begun pouring Yards Petty’s Island Ale, a nitro cream ale brewed for the outdoor bar with summer-day drinking in mind.

And tomorrow, City Tap House is debuting their exclusive Yards Brewing collaboration, Just Off Walnut. This beer is a Belgian Brown Ale brewed with a De Koninck yeast strain, leaving a fruity nose and spicy crisp finish. City Tap House managing partner Andy Farrell and Yards brewmaster Tim Roberts went back in forth in creating an accessible beer that is light and easy but sophisticated enough for the beer snob as well.

Morgan’s Pier opens for the season this evening with David Gilberg, formerly of Koo Zee Doo manning the kitchen. Gilberg has described his menu as “things we like to cook and eat outside.” That means the menu features items like watermelon with mint, lime and honey; spare ribs, grilled vegetable kabobs, cheeseburgers and pulled pork.

Morgan’s Pier Will Open May 1st

Morgan’s Pier will return for its third season on Thursday, May 1st. As we told you previously, David Gilberg will be the “executive chef in residence.” Gilberg was the chef and owner of the critically acclaimed, and sorely missed, Koo Zee Doo.

Gilberg’s menu will encompass “things we like to cook and eat outside; whether in the context of a backyard barbeque, a stroll along a boardwalk, or a simple picnic on the waterfront.” Look for lobster rolls, Piri Piri chicken, crab cakes and vegetable kababs. Also, look for salads, elotes and a day-boat fish entree steamed in corn husks.

11 Reasons We Are So Stinkin’ Excited for Warm Weather in Philly

warm weather

We are now officially four days into spring, but Mother Nature doesn’t appear to care one lick. And since we’re due to get more snow tomorrow (just a dusting, but still), I would like to say for the Internet Record that I am sick to death of being cold. I won’t go all the way and wish for full-on, 1,000-percent humidity summer weather, as my sister-in-law has done, but I’ll gladly take anything over 50 degrees at this point. Is that so much to ask?
