You went to the Phillies game yesterday? You watched the World Cup action somewhere else where there was cable service? You took the kids to the pool on the hazy, hot, and humid Saturday June afternoon? You missed TJs day of Philly Beer Week Leftover Scraps?
There was a comfortable barroom full (or half full, let's say) of people eager to get their lips on some Russian River Registration, Tröegs Scratch 31, Bear Republic Crazy Ivan, or Ballast Point firkin-served simcoe-dry-hopped Big Eye IPA among many other palate-pleasing goodies. Me? I couldn't let the day go without the Petrus Oak-aged Pale...I love Consecration from Russian River, but this Petrus might, just might, be even better in my opinion. Give it a try, if you haven't.
(Well-traveled beer geek, Lee, with the beers he accurately and blindly named; do I detect a Philly Beer Geek 2011 candidate in the room?)
A shout-out to Lee, of southern Delaware County/northern State of Delaware parts unknown, who accurately and blindly named all three samples that he was served. Wonder if he's ready for next year's Philly Beer Geek?!
TJs began serving a Sunday brunch a few months back. So, now that you're waking up and had a cup of coffee, you might want to think about heading over to TJs for brunch and some liquid goodness. According to their website, the picture below of yesterday's draftboard is still accurate. Go get 'em and enjoy! Take your growler too.
(UPDATE 6/27 afternoon: according to TJ's tweets, Russian River Registration kicked during brunch today)
(There have been more numerous Woody sightings than usual of late in the Philly Metro region...school must be out for summer, eh?)
