Hop Fest 1, The 1 Month Anniversary Edition

Ah yes, Hopslam day. Not to mention a mini hop fest to boot. The crowds started early and drank the gamut of hops before them. And they came Friday for lunch, maybe a liquid lunch for some, for others, just a early start on the weekend. So the question before us is... Is there any left? I wouldn't hold my breath after today that's for sure.

How Much Is That Bar Owner In The Window?

The world renown author Mr. Don Russell, aka Joe Sixpack, has just put up on the web a nice note about our little place here in the Limerick, Rofo and Sa-na-to-ga triangle. I just don't understand why Gary is smiling so much. I'm guessing it's because he is seeing paying customers and not contractors. Just a hunch.

We Be Slammin

Just a little note to all you Hopslam fans. We received our keg and will be putting it on around January 29, our 1 month anniversary. We also got a case of this fine brew, but we're only going to sell it in house, no six packs or mix and match. Sorry Charley.

We Have Heat, Beer And Food

As we huddled around our computers to stay warm over the next several days, I thought I might fill your minds with some warm info.
First, we got free wi-fi.
Second, yes we are going to be filling growlers soon. Not just yet though.
Third, we are right next to the Outlets and 422.
Fourth, when spring returns, we are next to two golf ranges and garden centers.
And last but not least, if my 2 and 7/8 cents has any power, there just might be some fun here during Philly Beer Week. Just saying.
Did I say something about 20% off mixed 6 packs? Didn't think so.

Pliny Has Left The Building!

Sorry to tell you that folks. Fantome is a glass or two away also. But do not worry. We have more beer in the cooler waiting for you. If you do need more hops from the west coast, a Blind Pig will be stopping by later in the month to help you out. I also hear it might snow on Saturday, maybe you need to get some snow shovels from the Ace Hardware located right behind us. And a little something for you right here.

Lets Hear From The Judges

8 days down, and the judges have spoken. That's you, beer geeks, beer lovers, foodies and lovers of all things new. Lets go to the scorecards. Beer Advocate, Rate Beer, Mr. Brian Parker, Mr.Lew Bryson and of course Mr. Jack Curtin who wrote about it several times. So far so good. Cause that's the way (uh huh, uh huh) they like it. Go ahead now, get that song out of your head.

You Like Us, You Really Like Us!

So much for a quiet opening. You came, you drank and you ate, and you drank some more. We could barely keep up with all the kegs that were kicking. Which by the way, a whole lot of them are going to be kicking real soon, so get your butt down here before they go. The bottle shop also keeps adding on. Oh, by the way, we got wi-fi for you too. No excuses, now you can work from the comfort of your bar stool. Ain't life good and crafty?
