Beer Calendar Update: September 2006
Our calendar for September is missing a few local (Philadelphia) events that have since been announced. Figured they needed a special mention in this space, just in case you haven't heard of them and may be interested in checking them out. They are definitely an intriguing set of events, eh? Starting with tomorrow evening, we have... Thu. 9/14/06 - John Rehm Farewell Party - John Harvard's Brew House - Wayne, PA (8pm-???; pay as you go) ~ On tap will be six-month old Skull Sealer Barleywine (10% abv), one-year old Old Eagle Wheat Wine (8.7% abv), 21-month old Black Eagle Scotch Ale (6.7% abv) and A Beer Named Sue Doppelbock (6.5% abv). ~ John's heading to Yards and it will certainly be their gain and JHBH's loss.

The beer will be a Belgian-style Trappist ale, similar to a Rochefort 10, they say, and it will be bottled and ready for consumption on November 14 for Iron Hill’s 10th anniversary celebration. It is an addition to the recently developed Iron Hill bottling program under which the brewers at all six locations bottle small lots of their most popular and award winning beers. Finn, Davies and Edelson have built up one of the East Coast’s most successful chains of brewery-restaurants since 1996 and their joint brew will be an historic event, according to Edelson, who is Director of Brewing Operations. "After 10 years, I’ve finally convinced my partners to join me in the brewhouse," he said. "It will be a significant occasion, because it’s our first attempt at this type of Trappist ale and the first time the three of us have brewed together.” Click Here for our calendar of selected Philadelphia-area events in September.
