This town has really become a good place to eat/ drink... and for being 0.9 square miles I've seen quite a few brew rigs on porches and patios.
I have a buddy out in York (he's a member) who has been talking about Forest and Main. His wife said they're open for business.

They're licensed and selling beer off premises but the restaurant hasn't opened yet.

I'm in Ardmore... I've been trying to lose weight, so I've been cutting back on drinking and haven't been to the last two MLB meetings. I'll be at the next one though... I'm bringing a Calypso SMASH for the tasting. Hopefully I run into you!

I'm also on the Pickering Creek Water and I also have the water reports. I got my results a few years ago though... are these amounts similar to yours?
It would be intersting to see if they vary over time/season. I got these amounts in the summer of 2010.

31 ppm Ca
8.4 ppm Mg
38 ppm Na
75 ppm Cl
37 ppm SO4
41 ppm CaCO3

Im in the Fishtown section of Philly, a mere 4 blocks from the new Barry's Homebrew location.

All-grain brewer, been brewing about 4 years

I went to GG Brewers a few months ago before I saw Demetri Martin right across the street.

It was extremely disappointing, the beer was not good. I cant even say that it was ok, it was just plain bad. Every beer was lacking body, thin, no head, undercarbed and oxidized. Not sure what they are doing wrong but their process is pretty flawed.

It was the same experience in all 4 beers of theirs I tried.

I didn't want to be the one who said it.
