Details on the din din
Ok so my hotel room features a welcome bottle of gin from a local distiller, so I guess this is going to be a fun trip.
Where am I eating and drinking today? Ideally I’d like to grab a pork roll egg & cheese and get a picture of the liberty bell for Instagram.
Reading Terminal? Might be too late in the day to get a Pork Roll, Egg and Cheese.
Drinking and eating? You can use http://www.phillytapfinder.com/ to check out bars and what they have to drink.
If you want a bar that serves all local beers go to South Philly Tap Room.
If this was Beer Advocate everyone would tell you to get on the train and head to Tired Hands.
Pliny the Younger is also in town if you're around to hit up some events. Check Philly Tap Finder for that as well.
The largest Wawa in the world is now open about 100 yards from the Liberty Bell. So if a sizzli will satiate your breakfast sandwich desires, you are in luck.
If youre already in old city, High Street on Market. Or Dutch Eating Place at Reading Terminal Market. Also check out FooBooz from Philadelphia Magazine.
Ok spent almost all of last night at Local 44. Dinic’s Roast Pork for breakfast today, and then coffee at Milkcrate. At Royal Boucherie now for some fancy cocktail reception for conference people. Thinking Han Dynasty for dinner and then over to Underground Arts for The Black Queen show.
You’re doing pretty well. Han is delicious. Would need to know what kind of food you want for any other ideas.
Not sure if you can squeeze into the bar at zahav but it’s definitely worth it.
Arrive 20 minutes before open and sit at the bar at Zahav... definitely
And South Philly Barbacoa for breakfast, trust me.
Not beer related but eff it ain’t no one posting in here.
Hill and Monks Collab
Anyone know of bottles of Cantillon 20 ans d’ Amitié are still kicking at Monk’s? Was hoping to crack one when I’m in town this weekend.
that is the beer Tom was mentioning to me, said it was very well done and very wine forward, would love to try it... "served sans carbonation" hannnng
Not sure, but I may try to stop by tomorrow. If I do, I'll report back.
Thanks. Also planning to stop in tomorrow. If I catch you drinking one across the room I'll say cheers!
St Benjamin is done. The owner of their building sold to someone who didn’t want the brewery there.
That's why they closed? That's awful.
edit: Though reading the article, it seems to say the owner of the brewery sold the building? Seems to imply he didn't want the brewery anymore in that case since why else would he sell the building?
Building must be worth way more than he’s making selling beer.
It does sort of skirt the fact that selling the things separately was most likely going to result in the brewery being asked to leave.
ah, yeah, that's actually what happened. though their statements on social media made it seem confusing.
The statement seems to be made by "management" which could have very well been in the dark about what ownership was doing.
