Sidecar Bar & Grille at 22nd and Christian is changing up its menu. The biggest change is the addition of a burger section that includes ten different burgers plus a build-your-own option. After 10 p.m. all of the house burgers, as well as the build-your-own version are reduced to $10. Also new on the menu is the beer can chicken sandwich, long a stalwart at Kraftwork (Sidecar’s sister bar) and an al pastor sandwich served on a long roll.

Sidecar is also rolling out a new happy hour promotion called “7 Before 7.” The deals include seven half-priced draft beers, $4 house cocktails and $4 picklebacks from the bar’s new pickleback list. Two carnitas, nachos and chicken bites are available between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. for $7.

Great Beer Is Running Rampant in Philadelphia

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.

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.

Black Friday Brunches Around Town

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.

end of the world sidecar

To some nutjobs, 11/12/13 is a sure sign of the apocalypse. To Adam Ritter and his fine team at Sidecar Bar & Grille, it’s a sure sign “the end is beer.” Sidecar is pouring twelve beers from San Diego’s Stone Brewing Company. In addition to Stone’s “Enjoy By 11/12/13″ beer, there will also be Vertical Epic 2012, Cali-Belgique, Saison Du Buff, R&R Coconut IPA and Suede.

Whoever drinks the last beer from the keg of “Enjoy By 11/12/13″ wins a prize.

Show Your Creative Side with these Pumpkin Carvings

sidecar-pumpkinIt’s pumpkin carving season. And the only thing that is better than a parent and child sitting down to carve their first jack-o-lantern together, is you, a beer, a sharp knife and a pumpkin.

Every Thursday through Halloween, Drury Beer Garden (behind Opa) is offering the opportunity to carve a pumpkin. $10 gets you a pumpkin beer, a pumpkin and of course, a pumpkin beer.

At both the Sidecar Bar & Grille and Kraftwork, Tuesday, October 22nd and Wednesday the 23rd are being set aside for pumpkin carving and fall beers, including a number of fresh hopped varietals and pumpkin beers too.
