Hit the Philly suburbs today, Norristown & Media, PA. Hit Capones and Pinnochio's. Pennsylvania has some weird beer laws and these places are knows and bottle shops. Apparently you can sells by the bottle if you have some sort of food license otherwise you have to sell by the case. Sounds like some bureaucratic luncay to me. Anyway picked up some gems which will be reviewed in due course....will start with one now
1) Flying Fish - Exit 4 9.7% - I guess they have a series of beers named after the NJ Turnpike exits. This is supposed to be a trippel but it is way too hoppy for that. That said I like it! Very tasty even if I don't know what it is supposed to be. Bought in a very cool looking growler!
2) Sam Adams - Chocolate Bock -5.6%- From the Winter Sampler - Decent, might be a bit thin and a little sweet but a very drinkable beer.
3) Gonna stick with the Sam Adams for a bit more - Holiday Porter 5.8% - Very tasty...I hate to think that I held it against Sam Adams that they are from Boston!
