2014 Tasting Schedule Part 1

Here is the line-up for our beer tastings for the next six months.  We are committed to highlighting more breweries, revisiting favorites, showcasing “local” breweries (PA or nearby states), and learning about different styles of beers.  
We will try to reserve the first Thursday of each month to a new and seasonally appropriate style of beer.  The last Thursday of the month is reserved for “local” beers which I define as beers from Pennsylvania and surrounding states—essentially Delaware, Maryland, and New Jersey. 

We are also planning some other events throughout the year, so stay tuned… 

Please note that the schedule may be altered based availability of certain beers. 

Tasting Schedule First Half of 2014 (every Thursday from 4 to 7ish)
This Thursday January 9th – We will be highlighting stouts….for IPA lovers these are the next frontier in your quest for complexity.  Much like IPA’s they require some getting you used to…but for the cold weather months there are few things more fulfilling than a properly sorted stout.  So come sample Oskar Blues Ten Fidy, Founders Breakfast Stout, North Coast Old Rasputin, and Anderson Valley Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout.   The beers are big, the sips will be small, and this is an excellent way to sample your new favorite style.
