The Great Philly Beer Frenzy of 2010




You have to hand it to Philadelphia, they know what's important. Philly.com has a full time beer reporter; A beer blogger named Joe Six-Pack.

Joe's been working overtime lately, what with the landing of the 2010 Pliny the Younger and the Philadelphia Liquor Control Board conducting raids to stop the sale of unregistered beer.

  • Turns out, the two events might be related. Jealously over who got the Pliny and who didn't?

  • These owners got pinched when the PLCB agents decided they possessed unregistered Duvel!

  • Of course, the list the agents used to determine what beers are registered is worthless.

  • You know people are pissed cuz the event spawned a Facebook Page.

  • What's worse, the release of a new beer might be delayed.


  • One good thing came out of this, though. I found three new quality beer blogs to follow:

    The Brew Lounge

    Shut Up About Barclay Perkins
