Next Monday, August 15th, is going to be great day for not one, but two reasons: First off, it’s National Relaxation Day (and The Logan is giving us all tons of free ways to zen out throughout the day) AND, secondly, it’s our third and last training run with our friends from The Philly 10K. And this time around, the run ends with free beer. See? I told you it was going to be a GREAT Monday.
On August 23rd, the 7th Annual BBQ at the Ballpark happens at the Jetro lot next to Citizens Bank Park. From 2 to 7 p.m., there will be barbecue, beer, and games. Sweet Lucy’s Smokehouse will be serving the food while Conshohocken Brewing, Neshaminy Creek Brewing, Philadelphia Brewing, Sly Fox Brewing, and Weyerbacher Brewing will be pouring the beer. Plus for the kid inside all of us, or the actual kid you bring, J-Dogs Amusements will be bringing the games.
This year, all proceeds will go to the Marianne E. Mebert Memorial Fund. The charity is close to the hearts of Rolling Barrel, as one of the co-founders recently lost their mother, Marianne Mebert, to Triple Negative Breast Cancer. Tickets will be $48.50 per person, $28.50 for designated drives, or $22.50 for kids under 12. To purchase tickets, click here.

Looking for a good ole’ clam bake in Philly? Well look no further than Johnny Brenda’s. The Fishtown bar is hosting an evening of oysters, crabs, lobster, and much more, including a very special menu item – Crab Poutine with Andouille sausage gravy over Old Bay fries. And to wash it all down, beers and ciders from Philadelphia Brewing Company.
So stop by on Saturday, July 26, to feast on the good food and enjoy the only kind of music that seems right for a clambake: beach songs and surf tunes, provided by DJ DNA, David April.
The event is pay-as-you-go and will be running from 4:00-8:00 p.m.
In the early morning of February 22nd, the studio/practice space of Jay Laughlin, Brian Wilkinson, and Pete Girgenti’s band, JJL, burned to the ground and the fire spared nothing. Everything was lost, including three guitars, a ’75 Les Paul Custom, an American Fender Strat, an American Deluxe Precision bass, three drum sets, multiple guitar/bass amps, and a huge effects pedal collection. The list goes on, and the tragedy has left them unable to play music like they used to.

So you guys have heard of Bitcoin, right? It’s that wholly digital, wildly fluctuating, peer-to-peer crypto-currency that’s been in the news a bunch recently because some big companies (Overstock, Virgin Galactic) have recently said that they’re going to let people pay with it.
Well, now Philly beer nerds who prefer to exist outside the traditional banking system can rejoice because Philadelphia Brewing Company has just announced that they’re going to be the first United States brewery to accept bitcoin as payment for both wholesale and retail purchases. Here’s a piece of their reasoning from the press release:
