Beers of the Wissahickon

Beers of the Wissahickon website.I hope you will excuse a bit of shameless self promotion, but I am finally launching my new blog, Beers of the Wissahickon, which will showcase the local beer culture.

As I say in the introduction (and by the way, I just love quoting myself):
Residents of Chestnut Hill, Mt. Airy, Roxborough, Germantown and Manayunk have easy access to many of the world’s greatest achievements in brewing.
One of the places affording that easy access to great beer is Manayunk's Old Eagle Tavern, and it is the subject of the first article.

As you might know if you read yesterday's post on this blog, I support buying local. It's not only good for the local economy, but for the environment as well. So if you're from this area, please support your local brewery, brewpub, or tavern. And if you're not, let me know when you're in town, and I'll buy you a beer.

Thanks for the idea about a website to give Patty for our 53rd wedding anniversary. It is different. I don't know but it might work. I could set it up and let her post stuff to it.

Thanks Dan.

I was at your new blog early this morning and left a comment so I guess I can get by without leaving another here.

Hey there, Dan. Interesting blog idea, I'll check it out. Unfortunately, due to a liver condition, I am unable to consume alcoholic beverages, though.
I hope you're having a pleasant day. Hows the weather there?

I'm with you on buying local! You've inspired me to go out this weekend to the farmers market. I'm going to check out your other blog. A cold beer sounds good on a hot muggy day like today.

I love it- beers and Bars of the Wisshickon!!
I met a girl through some friends at the Ugly Moose. Next time I saw her was at Dawson st. Pub. Soon after that we had a date that ended at the Flatrock.
A year later we had our rehearsal dinner
for our weddding at the General Lafayette Inn.
Now 5 years later and still going strong we always make a visit to McMenanim's when visiting family.
Phila. is unique in the world with it's excellent
neighborhood bars- or should I say Tap rooms!!
