Follow the Hammer of Glory

Early tomorrow morning Philly Beer Week’s Hammer of Glory will be making its way through Philadelphia towards the Opening Tap where it will be used to tap the ceremonial first keg of Philly Beer Week.

It’s kind of like the Olympic torch, but with more ridiculousness (and strippers)  so take off from work and cheer it on.
