Just got home from Capone's where they had their "Freshest IPA" event as part of Philly's craft beer week.

Started off with a tulip of Pliny the Elder and then polished off a flight (four 4oz glasses) of Firestone Walker's Double Jack, Avery's Maharaja, Cigar City's Firkin and Founder's Double Trouble!!

:ban::mug::rockin::drunk::tank::drunk::rockin::mug::ban:

I also picked up some bombers of the DFH Black & Blue, DFH Hellhound on my Ale, Firestone Walker's Double Jack, Speakeasy Double Daddy IPA and a single of the new Victory Summer Love!

Went to the Extreme Homebrew event the other day, and I think I'll be headed to the Victory Tap takeover tomorrow. :)

Crap! I still haven't had Pliny or Maharaja.

I might try Deschutes night at Capone's tonight and Flying Dog at Iron Abbey on Friday.

I like that the first two beers on your list for Philly Beer Week are from California. :)

To be fair, we do make the best IPAs.

It's been a great week...

Attending the Sierra Nevada Hombrew Cup tonight, hoping to get some good feedback on my entries, and Boxcar Brewings "Ride the Rails" dinner/tasting tomorrow night. Then wrapping up the week on Saturday with the: Zythos Belgian Fest, Yards Brewery Tour, and dinner at Standard Tap.

I entered a beer into that competition too, do you know where/when they will post the winners?

Good question...
I actually ended up not going to the results ceremony, opting for a meet the brewer event instead.
I was going to see if Keystone Homebrew had that info.
