This is my last posting of The Drafting Room's taplist, 1/23/09

Until the combination of Sean, Howard, Heather, Greg breaks down and doesn't keep the taplist up-to-date (yeah, that's a challenge :) this will be my last posting of local taplists.

Except for the Flying Pig in Malvern, local quality beer bars to the western Philly suburbs (Teresa's Next Door and The Drafting Room) have met TJs challenge. Well over a year ago now, Jeff Miller at TJs said enough was enough. Forget people calling and asking. Forget The Brew Lounge posting the taplist.

He's been updating the taplist on his website in as real of time as is humanly possible. Teresa's got their website up and going and are doing a decent job of getting it updated every few days or so. Now The Drafting Room joined the party a week or so ago and has been updating with every change of the tap handles. Whither the Pig?

Anyway, here's the last update that I'll make that will be ahead of TDR's website. Oh, and here's a direct link to it. Now, where's that link to the picture of Sean?

Philly and its neighbors reportedly has one of the most avid craft beer communities in the country. is planning to move there next by March. In NYC, with the bar managers of many of the best beer bars actually updating the menus, the menus are updated constantly. Enthusiastic individuals also put in menus and update.

I've watched the Beermenus website grow and have been impressed with its coverage of NYC. It's the type of model that I've wished to pursue over the past 5 years, but never seemed to sense that there was ever enough of a groundswell demand for it (and willingness to participate). I look forward to seeing it succeed in the Philly region as well...thanks for the note. (toss an offline note to me if you'd like to discuss further)
