Philly Beer Week - Pennsport Style

It's Finally Here - (via My Philly Alive)

Yes, it's that time of year again - Philly. Beer. Week. (psst. Get the app for all the PBW goodness)

It all kicks off off Friday, May 31st at 10am with the Hammer of Glory (H.O.G. for the in-crowd) Relay and runs through June 9th. Don't worry Pennsport, there is plenty of great beer on display with 2nd Street Brew House and The Industry holding it down for our fine neighborhood.

Here are some of the highlights:

2nd Street Brew House:
The local joint we all know and love is kicking things off with their 3rd annual "Kick The Locals" on Saturday, June 1st starting at 1pm. The real action takes place on Friday, June 7th with an EPIC ROCK PAPER SCISSORS TOURNAMENT starting at 8pm. Cash, prizes, and your pride are on the line. This puppy is sponsored by Evolution and Long Trail - so yeah, be there for that. Lastly, they round out Beer Week with "Dog Days of Summer" that features everyone's favorite beer from Delaware (and possibly the world), Dogfish Head. Inside scoop has them serving up some rare ones like 120 minute (!), 61 minute, Firefly (straight from the festival), Punkin, and Hellhound On My Ale, a tribute to legendary Mississippi Delta bluesman Robert Johnson.

Bottom line - 2nd Street Brew House is a must in Pennsport as it is (local or visitor). Throw in a chance at cash, prizes and great beer at an Epic Rock Paper Scissors Tournament? I'll see you there.

Expect more people for Philly Beer Week at The Industry (via FooBooz)
The Industry:
Just when you thought The Industry couldn't get any better - they hit you with a killer Philly Beer Week list of events. They are the Oprah of Tap Takeovers - you get a Coronado Event (5/31)! You get an Allagash Event (6/1)! And you get a Duclaw (6/1), a Great Divide (6/2 w/Yeti's!), and a Boulder, Lost Abbey, Troegs, (take a breath) Weyerbacher, and Elysian Event! All culminating in the 21st Amendment Can Event on June 8th. It's almost too much - almost.

If you're not crazy for Tap Takeovers (are you're crazy?) - then Yard's High Fives and Hugs is probably for you. Steve-O (yes THAT Steve-O) will be on hand making sure everyone gets a high five and a hug. Yard's will be slingin' some local goodness - plus one surprise brew right before the event. Definitely hit up the Ommegang Late Night Happy Hour (6/5 - 10pm) with Pennsport's own - Megan Maguire (@ommegangPhilly). Lastly, The Industry turns one on June 6th and they're throwing an Anniversary Party to celebrate. It all goes down at 6pm, so be there or be square!

Bottom line - The Industry rocks - plain and simple. The event list would be incredible with the Tap Takeovers alone. Great beer and even better food, needless to say, you're going to have a great time.
