This Weekend: PhillyTapFinder / Philly Beer Scene Bottle Exchange

File this one in the “Stuff I really wish I could do but I need a day off from drinking” category.

The couple behind the awesome website are hosting a bottle exchange with Philly Beer Scene magazine on Sunday, and they’re making it a period event. And by period, we mean the 18th century period.

For their fifth bottle share, they’re holding it in the lovely garden of the Powel House, a Society Hill rowhome once inhabited by Samuel Powel, the first mayor of Philly after the Revolution. $15 gets you in; $20 includes admission and a branded snifter (if you don’t buy one you’re asked to bring your own). The event is on Sunday, October 6, and runs from 1-4pm. It will be moved inside if it rains. Although organizers are making this a non-intimidating event by saying that non-geeks are welcome and beers don’t have to be “an obscure bottle found in some hidden ruin from the other side of the world,” the list so far is fairly impressive. Drink one for me.
