Draft Beer Update
Yards Brawler replaced Weyerbacher Romeo. Brawler is my nomination for Philly's Hometown Beer. It clocks in at just 4.2% ABV but has loads of flavor. It's what beer is or all about or should be. And at 4.2% you can probably have another as you'll definitely be wanting one.

Otter Creek Alpine Black IPA replaced the sixtel of Unibroue Raftman. If my memory serves me right, this is one of the really satisfying black IPAs, not just black but with hops that are deliciously assertive.

A 1/4 barrel of Twin Lakes Saengerbund Oktoberfest replaced Flying Fish Oktoberfish. Twin Lakes, a very small farmhouse brewery outside of Wilmington DE doesn't send much beer up here. Mostly because they don't make all that much (yet). So enjoy this one while it lasts.

For those were jonesing for some Oktoberfish though, no worries. We tapped a firkin of cask conditioned Flying Fish Oktoberfish, which is on to of the bar being served via gravity-pour.

Groundhog Day Teaser
Every Groundhog Day (February 2nd) we open at 7am for an Hawaiian Shirt Beer Breakfast to cheer on Punxsutawney Phil and to chase away the winter blues. We also squirrel away some amazing beer for the celebration. For Groundhog Day 2012, we will break out the 12 large bottles of Founders CBS that we are cellaring.
