Beer Week Alert #2: Four Seasons With Love Beer Garden

I hope readers will continue to check here daily for more and more BEER WEEK updates.

By now you will have read (here or somewhere else) about the GPTMC supported "With Love Beer Garden" at the Four Seasons.
I spoke with a few people that are "trying to picture it." I see where they are coming from- but one trip there led to a pretty fun vision for me.

They will be hosting local breweries all week.  Executive Director Don Russell says, "It will also serve as our ‘PBW 2011 headquarters,’ where visiting drinkers can pick up guide books, PBW merchandise and get up-to-the-minute details on all of the week’s events.”

Here's the line-up.
 I'm really looking forward to KAN JAM on Thursday.

·         Monday, June 6:  Bill Covaleski, of Victory Brewing Company.  Guests will experience a first taste of the wildly popular, recently re-released “Summer Love Ale,” brewed in conjunction with GPTMC’s “With Love” marketing campaign.  
·         Tuesday, June 7:  Chris Wilson, of Weyerbacher.  The brewery will be showcasing its portfolio of large-format 750 mL bottled beers, including “Merry Monks,” “Double Simcoe,” “Tiny,” and “Blasphemy.”
·         Wednesday, June 8:  Ben Potts, of Dock Street Brewing Company.  Dock Street will pour its “Royal Bohemian Pilsner,” “Man Full of Trouble Porter,” “Pimp My Rye,” “Bubbly Wit,” and “OMG Pale Ale.”  They will also share the first release of their summer Saison Series, a yet-to-be-named brew made with rosemary, basil, oregano and black pepper.
·         Thursday, June 9:  Brian O’Reilly, of Sly Fox Beer.  Featuring a night of canned beer and lawn games (think Disc Golf), the evening will also include an exclusive taste of “Broederlijke Liefde” (which means “Brotherly Love”), the one-of-a-kind PBW collaboration beer created by O’Reilly last winter at Belgium’s famed De Proef Brouweij.  
·         Friday, June 10:  Tom Kehoe, of Yards Brewing Company, and Carol Stoudt, of Stoudt’s Brewing Company.  Together, Kehoe and Stoudt will pour “Brotherly Suds 2,” the second-annual local PBW collaborative brew.  Brewed this year at Stoudt’s, the lager was created with 100% German specialty malts, and a blend of German and Domestic hops and the Schmidt’s of Philadelphia yeast strain for fermentation.

Nice summer bites will be available...
 “Philly Beef Slider" with Taylor pork roll, American cheese and grilled onions; Steamed New Jersey Clams with garlic and rooftop parsley; Port Richmond Kielbasa Sandwich with Polish mustard; Lancaster Honey-Glazed Organic Chicken Wings; and Shrimp Soft Tacos with avocado, jalapeƱo and pickled cabbage.
