READY OR NOT, HERE COMES PHILLY BEER WEEK
So big, this week requires 10 days to fit in all the events. Lots of new stuff this year. Stay up to date at phillybeerweek.org There's a really cool iPhone app on its way. We'll fill you in on all our events in the next newsletter.
14TH EDITION OF THE PERFECT SUMMER BEER-FARMHOUSE SUMMER ALE
Hard to believe this tasty stuff is now entering its 14th summer. That's good for all of us! Our Farmhouse Summer Ale is on its way out to your favorite retailer and tavern as you read this. The perfect summer beer, Farmhouse Ale is brewed with pale malt, a small percentage of wheat and single-hopped with imported Styrian Golding hops. It's a tribute to the "everyday" Farmhouse beers of Belgium (but it's not a Saison - no fruit, herbs or spices). A sour mash gives this beer its signature dryness and great drinkability. The Farmhouse is also available in 1/6 and 1/2 kegs. If you don't see it, ask your local retailer for it.
EXIT 16 WILD RICE DOUBLE IPA RUNNING OUT
If you find any out in the stores, count your blessings and grab it. We have a little bit left we're selling here during tours, but that's it. Next Exit Series premieres in June. Stay tuned.
