Sierra Nevada from Bucks County to Chester County

Have you seen the new Belgian Trippel from Sierra Nevada around town yet? If not, you should be soon; it just hit the Philly market last week, according to regional sales rep Patrick Mullin. Patrick dropped details for a couple of other Sierra Nevada events in my inbox and they look worthy of sharing with you. If you've never seen Patrick present during a beer dinner, either of these would be good opportunities. And, even though it's not yet on the calendar, it's worth mentioning that Mr. Mullin will be returning to the place of his former employ in Chester County. Drafting Room proprietor, Howard Weintraub, has recently returned from the Sierra Nevada Beer Camp. The beer that he helped to craft will be arriving at The Drafting Room in Exton sometime within the next month. Howard and Patrick will be planning a dinner event there at the restaurant when that time comes. Stay tuned.
