One of our signature events is back for another run. Beginning 12/11 at noon, we will begin tapping 25 barrel aged beers advent-style, going two a day for twelve days straight (incl. one day with three). As with previous years, this is a 'non-sour' event, naturally predicated upon bourbon barrels and dark/heavy beers, but we've taken measures to mix it up and keep the styles interesting.
12/11: Weyerbacher Brewing 21st Anniversary + Heresy
12/12: Stone & Key Cellars & Big Hill Ciderworks Barrel Aged ciders.
12/13: Boulevard Brewing Company Tripel Julep, Firestone Walker Brewing Co. Stickee Monkey, plus bonus keg: Boulevard Collab #6 w/ FW.

12/18: Hoppin' Frog Brewery Barrel Aged B.O.R.I.S. + Barrel Aged In-Ten-Sidy
12/19: Founders Brewing Co. Backwoods Bastard + Lizard of Koz
12/20: Two Roads Brewing Company Roadsmary's Other Baby 2015 + Unorthodox 2015
12/21: Bear Republic Brewing Co. Barrel Aged Demolition Derby + Zut Alors
12/22: FiftyFifty Brewing Company Eclipse FLIGHTS. Pricing and available quantity to follow- expecting a flight of eleven different finishes.
All kegs will remain on tap until they kick, years past it was generally 2-3 days per keg (by day three there are generally 5-8 on tap at any given time throughout). Keep an eye on Phillytapfinder Craft Beer Locator for daily updates, but keep in mind that the online updates are done each morning. Each are priced between $7-9 per 10oz draft, with .25L portions for beers over 11%.
**TOY DRIVE** If you bring a toy in it's original box, you can get one each of the day's featured drafts for $5. If doing so, please give your toy to your server or bartender before ordering your beer(s)!
