Do you know how many IBUs are in a IPA? Can you tell a Marzen from a Fest?
If you don't already know September has a Friday the 13th, and to a Beer Nerd that means going to the Grey Lodge in the picturesque Mayfair neighborhood of Philadelphia to drink beer from a Firkin or maybe a Pin. Yes, It's Friday the Firkinteenth the only beer event at the mercy of the calendar. The event starts at Noon. It ends when the last keg has been kicked and there's about 30 this year, tapped 7 at a time.
The event is CASH ONLY. seriously, CASH ONLY.
I will not be there until at least 4 because I have to work and they will know I am faking a sickness.
The event will be extremely crowded after 4 when typical work days start to end. If you want the possibility of geting a seat at the bar get there before 11 and bring a friend to save your seat when you have to use the facilities (which have impressive tiling work)
This will be a on your own meetup. Due to it's length and the number of people there it will be difficult but not impossible to find other meetup people. (that is unless everyone comes completely dressed in mauve)
The Grey Lodge is near the intersection of Frankford Ave and Harbison Ave. It can be reached by the route 66 bus/trolley from Septa's Frankford terminal.
