Brewpub and Tasting Room Happenings
2nd Story Brewing is turning one this weekend. Starting this evening they will be running food specials and showing off new beers including, Brewer’s Widow – a collaboration with the brewer’s beloved wife, Gillian. The beer is described as dark in color with a touch of resentment.
Pouring now at Tired Hands Fermentaria in Ardmore is People Person. The beer is a dry hopped blonde ale and is a collaboration with the band Pissed Jeans. I guess its better that they didn’t name it for the band.
Brewerytown’s Crime & Punishment has given into the “Sunday American Football gods.” You can watch the Eagles evening games at the brewpub now.
Mark your calendars, Wednesday, November 4th is the day that Dock Street Brewing is releasing Ain’t Nothing To Funk With, its beer that has been steeping for six months while Wu Tang Clan played on repeat for 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
