It's On! 22 days to Philly Beer Week

Senor Casey Parker of Jose Pistolas with the H.O.G.
There was a lot of positive energy on the sun-drenched "With Love XoXo" Beer Garden at the Four Seasons yesterday. A group of about 80 people gathered to listen to Don Russell share a few highlights of the upcoming 4th annual Philly Beer Week.

A few things:

-The new website is up www.phillybeerweek.org
-The DROID app is now available (iphone to come shortly)*I downloaded it and it's pretty impressive. You can save events that you want to attend.

-There's a nice focus on local beer this year. The Four Seasons is hosting a beer garden in conjunction with the Philadelphia GPTMC (Greater Phila Tourism and Marketing Corp).  Everyday a different brewery will be featured.  You can drink your share of Victory's "Summer of Love" beer- which is actually crossing the country next month. The beer will reach 29 states.
There will also be bottles of the Sly Fox/De Proef Collaboration (Saison). I will have a full sched. of what's going on when in the beer garden soon.
-The keepsake PBW Guide launched yesterday. It was designed to be a fixture at your house hold all year long for reference. It breaks the city down into neighborhood beer destinations. So if you find you are all to comfy walking Fairmount and never venture South- this will give you a lil motivation.
