Homebrewer: I'm in Center City, near Rittenhouse Square. I actually just moved up here from D.C. Somewhat fortuitously, I am right around the corner from an LHBS. That's what gave me the final push to jump into this crazy hobby (addiction)
Planning: Ned's Red (Flanders style)
Secondary 1: Cripple Kriek (a 'pseudo' cherry lambic)
Secondary 2: Monk's Tripel...
Bottled: Dark Star Brown Ale, Watership Stout, Yet to be named cider
Well... a person can work up a mean, mean thirst after a hard day of nothing much at all.
This kind of an area is the best place for survival because you do have good, basically intelligent, hard working, decent people and they're all armed to the teeth... and that's my kind of people.
