RBSG 2011

Details

Come and enjoy the great beer city that is Philadelphia with the company of lots of awesome RateBeerians in a four day extravaganza of beer and local culture. A basic schedule will be posted here and updated as specifics are nailed down.

Thursday: Meet and greet for early arrivals at a center city bar that can provide us with some generally private space to get to know everyone.

Friday daytime: Bus trip to some of the beer highlights of suburban Philadelphia. Stops: Sly Fox Brewing Co., McKenzie Brewhouse, Iron Hill Brewery, Capone’s. For info/bus reservations:

Saturday evening: Grand tasting from 6pm-12am. The adventurous and still sober can then venture out to the city for one of the many Philly Beer week events that will be occuring that evening.

Sunday morning: Farewell beer brunch.

I will show up if the grand tasting is longer. That is what makes a summer gathering.

I agree with Paul (Dickinsonbeer) as well; I need a place to bring that big ass 9L Pannepot Grand Reserva bottle to share with everyone once and for all!! :-)))
Drake 1/16/2011
I agree with Dickinsonbeer, even if only because I’ll need something to do to kill time before the 8AM train the next morning.
Dickinsonbeer 1/16/2011
I would suggest to find a place for the grand tasting to allow us to go much later than 10pm if possible. 4 hours seems very short for a grand tasting. Of the few RBSG’s I have been to, it seems the grand tasting has gone from about 5-6 to at least 2am, sometimes much later.
