A trip to UJ's and then...PHILLY BEER WEEK

Alas, all info is in and all tallies have been tallied. I am here with news so fresh that 0's and 1's are dribbling down my computer screen (surely they'll have dried by the time you read this).

What's being billed as New Holland Fest at Union Jacks on the Manatawny on Saturday 2/21...PAYG featuring the following beers:

A firkin of Dragon's Milk. Yeah, i said it. A firkin of Dragon's Milk.
Mad Hatter IPA
Sundog Amber Ale
Night Tripper Imperial Stout
Existential Hopwine (Double IPA hops meet a Barleywine backbone)
Pilgrim's Dole Barrel Aged Wheatwine

If ever there was a prelude to the indulgent madness of Philly Beer Week, a night with Tom and his crew is just that.

Thanks so much for posting your events. We are really excited for the "Library" dinner! The event at the P.O.P.E. sounds wild. Hopefully our flight lands in time!
