Brewers in the City of Brotherly Love
Next week, 10,000+ brewing industry professionals (at least, that's what we like to call ourselves) will descend upon the City of Brotherly Love for the Craft Beer Conference. This year, it's setting up shop in Philadelphia, a city with a rich history in brewing that goes back further than the crack in the Liberty Bell. While the conference itself is for industry members only, we'd like to personally invite you to paint the town Flying Dog.

Featuring Percy's beloved chicken biscuit, BBQ fries and pulled pork sliders alongside Bloodline Blood Orange Ale and Fever Dream Mango Habanero IPA.
Tuesday, May 3 at Moriarty's Pub

There ain't no party like a Cinco De Mayo party with yours truly. Consuming Numero Uno and beer margaritas is mandatory, but smashing the piñata is a privilege, not a right.
