Draft Beer Update

We let Chris have a well deserved day off and four beers kick: Weyerbacher Last Chance IPA, Troegs Dream Weaver Wheat, Prism Misdemeanor of the Third Degree, and Manayunk Festivus.

And four beers were tapped to replace them, sort of.

Tapped:

Do Good United Ale (quarter) - the flagship beer from the li'l brwewery from Port Richmond is a blood orange cream ale. It's both unique great. Being unique in today's beer world is hard. Being is great is always hard today or anyday.

Philadelphia Pennsylvania Pale Ale (quarter) - a rock solid pale ale from the not so li'l brewery in Kensington.

Destihl Weissenheimer Hefeweizen - due to some technical issues, we had to untap this one. Which is a bummer because I was really looking forward to it. Destihl has doing amazing things with their canned sour ales that don't break the bank. I'm really looking forward to trying a "normal" beer from them.

Great Lakes Erie Monster - this is a giant double/triple IPA that clocks in at over 9% ABV. Drink ye with caution oh hopheads.

Our Web redesign is coming along. I've been teaching myself CSS for the last few weeks. I've finally got to the good part with the really cool but involved stuff. It will take a few weeks until the site is ready for prime time. Thanks for bearing with us in the meantime. 

This Week at the Grey Lodge 

Tuesday

Taco Tuesday: Tuesday is Taco Tuesday from 5pm to midnight. Our kitchen krew comes up with three different tacos every week. Tacos are 3 for $8, mix and match as you like. The current week's selections are updated here every Tuesday afternoon.


Wednesday

Quizzo:
Wednesday we have Quizzo at 8pm. This week's Quizmaster is Jack. As usual Quizzo will be on our 2nd floor.



Saturday and Sunday

Weekend Brunch: Saturday and Sunday, we serve Brunch from 10am to 2pm. In addition to our regular brunch menu, we have a brunch special every weekend. Our regular menu is available too. This week's brunch special will be announed later this week.



Draft Beer Update
On our lager line, Victory Scarlet Fire replaced Stoudts Gold. Scarlet Fire is an authentic rauchbier, which isn't for everyone. Either you are into the smokiness or you ain't. If you ain't, that's OK, you don't have to like every style of beer. Our log does not judge, nor do we. But for those of us who love rauchbiers, they don't get better than Scarlet Fire. It's like being in Bamberg drinking fresh rauchbier from one of their many breweries.

Boulder Shake Chocolate Porter replaced Victory Hop Devil on the hand pump. A delicious porter with a nice chocolate flavor.

Draft Beer Update:

Long Trail Limbo IPA replaced Sixpoint Bengali Tiger IPA. This IPA is big and brimming with the flavors and aromas of the new breed of hops coming out of Australia and the Pacific Northwest.

Manayunk Building Bridges Belgian Pale Ale replaced Yards Sons of Ben. A Belgian Pale Ale made in collaboration with St. Benjamin Brewing.

Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgerald Porter replaced Weyerbacher Heresy. A complex, roasty aroma with a bittersweet, chocolate-coffee taste and a bold hop presence.

Woodchuck Pear Cider replaced Sir Charles Original Semi-Dry Cider. A crisply refreshing drink with the tantalizing essence of pear.

Update:

Yards 20th Anniversary Sour replaced Lagunitas Undercover Investigation Shut-Down Ale. Sour, earthy, funky; this unique beer was crafted with lactobacillus during primary fermentation, then a portion was aged on brettanomyces for over a year. Finally a small portion of sour-mashed wort fermented in charred oak was added for extra complexity.

Do Good Birra Forte Limoncello IPA replaced Lagunitas Equinox Ale. The mesh of fresh lemon peel and quality fresh hops creates a bitter and fresh wonderland of enjoyment for your mouth.

Attention Blog Readers
We're not really sure if anyone actually reads our blog and are considering replacing it with increased updates to our Facebook page.

Our Website really has been around since forever, way predating social media. So now we find ourselves doing a lot of duplicate entry. So folding the blog into Facebook timeline posts seems like an efficient way to go. This would be part of a major, major overhaul and complete rethinking of our Website and the place Websites have in today's world.

But what you think? Do you read the blog? Would having regular Facebook posts (with a link from greylodge.com) work for you? Please let us know at scoats@greylodge.com. Thanks!
