Introducing: Shmitten Kitten Kolsch

About 9 months ago- head kitten of Shmitten Kitten, Anna Goldfarb, came to me wanting Sly Fox to make her a beer. The lady enjoyed time spent sipping and sweating in bar come-dance halls across Philly such as the Barbary and Johnny Brenda's. She wanted a beer that would quench her thirst after Age of Consent.  So we decided on a light Kolsch. She also wanted a beer that her favorite dudes could enjoy pint after pint as they sit at the bar- a kolsch would be perfect. Something so delicate in the midst of a hard-hitting, heavy rock and roll scene.

Months passed- we had to get the beer registered and find time at our ever-busy Royersford brewery to brew it. Then on March 4th-one of her writers, Lora Burns and myself joined her out there at the beginning of March- and helped Sly Fox brewer Max brew it.

Then Anna selected 20 or so bars that she enjoyed drinking in-and we shipped. Here's her slide show on the day.

The Launch party is at the POPE on Wednesday April 6th 7 pm. Come meet the affable Anna Goldfarb and maybe- she'll even share one of her dating disasters about liking guys a foot shorter than her 6 foot self.

Here are just a few that she selected:
City Tap House
Lucky 13
Tattooed Moms
Standard Tap
Johnny Brendas
South Philly Tap Room

We hope you love it!

  1. It's quite good. Had it last Friday night at the pub. And now I recall this young lady at the Goat Races last year talking about doing this.
