Philly Beer Week is approaching. A few months ago fellow brew collaborator, Julian Heal and I were asking to participate in a couple events, the 3rd Annual Oakmont Cup and a Homebrew Tasting Night at The Slingluff Gallery. I've been anxious for both. The Oakmont Cup isn't a sanctioned contest, but it is a nice opportunity to semi-compete for patron's palates. A little alliteration goes a long way. Every year the contest is about one beer style only. Belgians take the cake in 2012.
For the Homebrew Night at The Slingluff Gallery we aimed to take it low. A low gravity treat with hops to knock your socks off (Keep your feet off the walls, it's an art gallery). The gallery is right in the midst of Barcade, Johnny Brendas, Memphis Taproom, Kraftworks, and an on going list. There will be plenty of events ending Philly Beer Week, but this just so happens to fall on the The Slingluff Gallery Anniversary, and with beer running the city for a week we shot for brew that won't put you face down on the concrete as you make your rounds around town.
The Oakmont Cup is on Tuesday, June 5th from 7pm-9pm in Havertown, PA.
The Slingluff Gallery Event is Saturday, June 9th. TBA.
