Draft Beer Update
On our wheat beer line, Fegley's Brew Works Steelgaarden Wit replaced Weyerbacher White Sun Wit. A wit for a wit. It would be nice if I had something witty to add but I don't. But who needs wit when you've got wit on tap?

Stoudts Abbey Double replaced Yards Thomas Jefferson Tavern Ale. Back in the day, like 15 years ago, Stoudts used to be as well known for their Belgian beers as for their German ones. Somehow this one fell through the cracks over the years. It's back, at least for a little while. Us old heads can drink this and think back with idealized visions of how things that used to be. Young heads can look at us like we are crazy old people and snicker. So it's a win for everyone. And we all get to drink a tasty Belgian style double. And we all get to win a little more, together. Now for the Flyers to win again tonight. As the young heads would say "hashtag winning". Actually they won't say that; they'd just text it.

Flying Fish NJ350 replaced  Summit Winter (sixtel). Flying Fish describes this beer so well that I'm just going to copy/paste for this one: New Jersey has always had a rich brewing heritage dating back to it’s founding by the English in 1664. To celebrate this anniversary we’ve brewed a historic-style: an English Stock Ale. Rich imported malts along with both historic and modern hops and a generous helping of blackstrap molasses makes for a hearty and complex flavor. The Cluster hops, the first variety cultivated in the US, add a piney aroma, a nod to the Pine Barrens, one of our state’s treasures.

9pm Update

Troegs Sunshine Pils replaced Dogfish Head Aprihop. Troegs Sunshine Pils is one of those summer seasonals that always, always flies out of here. This is the first of many for 2014.

On our IPA line, Fegley's Brew Works Hop Explosion replaced Sixpoint Bengali Tiger IPA. Hop Explosion is a great name for an IPA. This is an IPA that has what hopheads are looking for.
