Did you know that a woman, A. Serrill Headley, owned the Khyber in its previous incarnation? And that she stocked it with 180 beers? Unfortunately, this colorful lady just died, which is too bad, since we think she’d be fun to pal around with during Philly Beer Week. Then again, according to her obit she might be around after all:

Ms. Headley told a reporter in 1994 that her establishment was haunted. It had been some sort of a saloon since 1876, including during Prohibition, when it was a speakeasy. “After I’m gone,” she said, “I intend to come back and haunt the place myself.”
