Bork bork bork bork bork!! Let's See how many Scandinavian ales it takes you to start sounding like a Muppet at the annual Smorgasbeer'd.

When I saw this I knew I had to attend. I love the Swedish Chef, as many of you the have attended my Phillies tailgate may know.

Do you enjoy a cold beer on a warm summer evening with some good tunes playing and tasty munchies on hand? If that sounds like your kind of night, then you will be sure to enjoy the ASHM’s third annual SmörgåsBeer’d event, complete with a spread of Swedish and American foods, as well as a fundraiser raffle, museum tours ,the musical stylings of DJ Lou Diamond and a special appearance by the Leif Ericsson Viking Ship.

Sample lagers, ales, pilsners, and the like with Yards, Triumph Brewery, McKenzie Brew House, and Dock Street. Brewery reps will be on hand to give you the background on each beer they have on tap. We will also be serving a variety of brews representing Scandinavia’s contributions to the world of beer. A spread of savory finger foods will satisfy your hunger and help you decide which beer goes best with Swedish meatballs, mini sausages, cheese & more.   So, let's drink like a viking.
