Tapped: Abita Jockamo IPA, Arcadia Cocoa Loco, cask conditioned Troegs Hopback, Dogfish Festina Peche, Erie Sunshine Wit, Harpoon Rustys Rye, Otter Cr

I apologize for not getting the tap list updated sooner. I tried; I really tried, but numerous factors prevented it. Anyway here we go. As you will see, some lines turned over twice.

Harpoon Rustys Red Rye replaced Ramstein Maibock. This is one from Harpoon's 100 barrel series. It has a great back story. Just ask a bartender to see the draft card in front of the tap for more info.

Philadelphia Newbold IPA replaced Philadelphia Kenzinger. We have an event with Philly Brewing this Saturday, 06/07/08, from 6 to 8. We will have their new Fleur de Lehigh on tap and special one-off Philly Brewing T-shirts for sale. Should be a fun time.

Abita Jockamo IPA replaced Green Flash Hop Head Red, which replaced Green Flash West Coast IPA. There was great word of mouth for Hop Head Red. As expected it went quickly. We'll get more whenever some makes its way to Philadelphia.

Dogfish Head Festina Peche replaced Stoudts Abbey Double (sixtel), which replaced Yards IPA. This one is a Berliner weisse. The tartness traditional to this style is balanced out with peaches.

Otter Creek White Sail replaced Troegs Sunshine Pils. OC White Sale is a Belgian style white beer. It was a tasty refresher after my day of hell yesterday.

Erie Sunshine Wit replaced Summit Scandia, which replaced Tommyknocker Jack Whacker Wheat. Yowsa! Scandia didn't last long. Erie Sunshine Wit is a Belgian style white beer that is rather light with its spicing.

This week's Stout Season beer of the week,
Arcadia Cocoa Loco Triple Chocolate Stout, replaced Erie Drake's Crude Oatmeal Stout. We have had Cocoa Loco on tap before and it's quite nice. It's a chocolate stout, how can it not be nice? This "triple" chocolate stout clocks in at under 8%.

On our hand pump,
Troegs Hopback Amber replaced Victory Hop Devil. I had a taste of this one last night. It has a big hop nose and finished very delicately on the palate.
