Right--I normally do these weekly calendar updates on Thursday morning. And, that's exactly what you'll see tomorrow morning. You're all good enough readers to pick up on what I'm about to point out.
Once again, the Philly area beer calendar is bursting at the seams and demonstrates how "in to" great beer the publicans are...the consumers are...the brewers are...the distributors are. We live Beer Week year-round 'round these parts.
Take for example Thursday February 17 and the 10 events that will be on my weekly calendar release tomorrow. Stand back and admire the tenacity of our beer region on an "average" Thursday night.
In the Lehigh Valley, Bethlehem Brew Works is doing a charity fundraiser with a special cask of beer to benefit the Muscular Dystropy Association.
In Philly, Jose Pistolas is throwing a party with Allagash's Rob Tod and in the suburbs, Capone's is throwing yet another Sierra 30th Anniversary Bash for one last taste of the special anniversary beers.
There'll be a cask of Yards Chocolate Love Stout at Khyber Pass Pub, a couple over at Kraftwork during its celebration of Victory's 15 years, and at least two at Fork & Barrel as they welcome BFM's Jerome Rebetez.
White Dog in University City is throwing a Happy Hour with Weyerbacher.
Devil's Den will be experimenting with beer and cheese in conjunction with DiBruno Bros., both always good moves.
Iron Hill has a sold-out five-course meal in Maple Shade with some pretty nice beers (call to check for cancellations).
And, finally, Sly Fox is continuing Boot Camp at its Royersford location as they march on toward St. Patrick's Day.
Happy Thursday. Not too shabby, eh? Get your rest.
