The place has been open for 154 years and never before has this happened. Never before has the bar at McGillin’s run out of beer. But all it took was the crowds coming back from yesterday’s Mummers Parade to literally drink the place dry of every cheap, domestic drop for the first time EVER.
Yes, there were some craft beers left. But before the day was out the mob killed every keg, bottle and can of Bud Lite, Miller Lite, Pabst Blue Ribbon, Yuengling, Yuengling Light, McGillin’s Genuine Lager, Walt Whit and Stella Artois in the house.
For those of you who are wondering, the bar is now restocked and there’s plenty of Bud Lite for everyone.
