Dog Days of Summer? nah, not in Philadelphia

The dog days of summer will have to wait 'til next year, because this year in the Philadelphia region, we have several great beer things on the horizon to keep us cool. The summer got started right at the beginning of June here with the opening of Teresa's Next Door Bar in Wayne, PA. Next up will be the releasing of Perkuno's Hammer (formerly of Heavyweight Brewing in NJ) from Victory. Then, not long after that, provided all goes as planned, the newest incarnation of Dock Street should be unveiled in West Philly. Still undetermined, but possibly capping off the summer could be the new offspring of Monk's Cafe, part deux, in the Fairmount/Art Museum section and the new Beneluxx (of Eulogy descendency) just a couple blocks away from its parent. In the middle of all these new (and returning) openings, Stoudt's is celebrating its 20th year in the biz. Troegs and Appalachian are celebrating their 10th. And, Iron Hill continues their growth onward through the suburbs. What are you looking forward to this summer? CHEERS!
