    Welcome to our best draft list of the year.

    THE LOWDOWN

    We've been hoarding fancy kegs since Philly Beer Week, and the cream of the crop is taking over our taps on Pro Bowl Sunday. We figured this is regularly a boring day, so why not come celebrate with us? All 32 lines will be pouring for the event, the first half sour/wild ales, the remaining half a mix of the best stuff we could get our hands on, with an emphasis on imperial IPAs & stouts.

    THE RULES

    The taps open at noon. First come first served (no tickets etc), but there is a limit of one of each draft per person at a time. We realize there are some big names at the top of the list, but quite honestly all sixteen sours should be worth a try, we truly hope that everybody attending gets a chance to try everything that they would like! Sours will all be poured in 10oz goblets, but in an effort to extend the supply Cantillion will go in 6oz teardrop glasses.

    MEA CULPA
    Please understand that there is wild stuff in many of these kegs... they were all delivered and stored cold, but any one of them could have re-fermented and simply pour foam. Damn I hope this doesn't happen, but just putting it out there, there's always a slim chance
