Flyers-Penguins Beer Wager, The Goods are Stacking Up

Things are coming together quite nicely in the Great Philadelphia-Pittsburgh Beer Wager of 2008, I mean, Flyers-Penguins playoff battle. While the majority of comments (okay, all of them) on my last posting have been pro-Pens, Philadelphia-area brewers and proprietors are speaking loudly with their contributions to the wager. In the event that the Flyers should lose the series, I will be arranging delivery of the Fertile Crescent's finest to Jeff Bearer of Craft Beer Radio, based in western Pennsylvania. (My donation to the wager will be the shipping cost!) He will then, in turn, find a way of awarding the Philly beer bait to one or more of his listeners. But, if things go as we here in Phillytown expect them to, Jeff will be shipping some goodies to me for distribution to one or more of the TBL subscribers. Here's what we've got lined up so far coming out of the eastern side of the State. Jeff, what are your guys coming up with? This is last call for anyone still wanting to get in on this fun wager. We'll wrap this thing up tomorrow morning and officially announce the stakes before Friday night's Game One. Iron Hill - couple of 750 ml bottles McKenzie - Abbey 8 in 750 ml bottles Monk's Cafe - limited edition, Monk's Café bottle opener (only 50 handmade by local blacksmith) Sierra Nevada - golf shirt Sly Fox - t-shirt & 6 pack The Drafting Room - unspecified TJs - (1) 12 oz. 2006 Avery The Beast; (1) 12 oz. 2007 Dogfish Head Raison D'Extra; (1) 12 oz. 2008 Dogfish Head Immort; (1) 12oz 2008 Peche Mortel Tröegs - couple of six packs of mixed Tröegs Victory - six pack of Prima & Hop Devil Yards - 6-pack of Philly Pale Ale
