Bridge Street Brewskies

You may have heard the rumors circulating wherever people are drinking good beer. You may have seen the flyer at your local fair trade, hand made joint. I am here to tell you that it's coming people. The organic beer is coming and you should be there to taste it.

What should be the very first of a bunch in the Bridge Street Tasting Series, the event is going down in Phoenixville's 'Happening District' and its approaching quickly.

On June 5th from 6 - 9pm at Earthmart on Bridge Street (in between Wolfgang Books and The Colonial Theater) we'll be tasting organic beers from Peak Organics and Wolaver's. A taster glass is $3 and you can taste until your heart's content.

Earthmart is more than meets the eye, while they offer a great variety of handmade products from kitchen utensils to glassware as well as organic and fair trade food and drink, Earthmart can help you turn your home into a center of energy and resource conservation. From sinks and flue-less fireplaces (which are really awesome) to solar fans for your attic. Where else can you get a veggie burrito and an environmentally safe fireplace in one stop?

This is sort of a pilot episode to see what the turnout looks like, but future tastings are planned to be a bit more involved, with a lot of different beer to be paired with a lot of the different businesses Phoenixville has to offer.

This one will be a good time though, that much is certain. The staff at Earthmart is a lot of fun, Peak is sending a rep, and i'll be humming symphonies and juggling toy cars as i pour from Wolaver's fine organic products.

While things like charity and bettering our quality of life are fresh in my mind, this event is being held simply to spread information about organic brewing and get the names Earthmart and Grain Bill ( out there to you folks. The $3 will hopefully pay for the beer and ice. Come say hi.

If by some chance you're a business in the Phoenixville area and you'd like to put on a tasting of your own, please get in touch and we'll start planning.
