Heavyweight News

Here’s some more news from the Heavyweight Brewing Company!

Hello all-

We’re hosting another open-house on Sunday, April 30th, from 1-4pm. We’ll be pouring the 2006 Baltus OVS, the Wee Whale Scotch Ale and the Ste-ve’ (a Belgian-style Pale). We’ll also have all three in bottle for take-away. We would also ask that you bring some non-perishable food for our local Foodbank collection (you know, cans and dry goods), Last time we collected 450 pounds thanks to you. Gus, our trusty open-house barkeep, would like to thank you for your gratitude (tips) in the past and wants us to remind you that all of these funds have been used in the support of the Haiti mission he is involved with. Ask him about it next time you see him.

Slow Food Philly is having a Pig roast and BBQ bash at Yards Brewery on Sunday, May 21, from 2-5 pm. Lynn Buono, (from Feast Your Eyes and Amelia’s BBQ), has kindly agreed to cater the event. There will also be great beer from both Heavyweight and Yards. This will be a great opportunity to meet lots of Slow Food folks and enjoy some fine BBQ and craft brews! Tickets are $35 for members and $40 for non-members.

We’ll also be at the following events:
May 5 – Beer and Cheese Tasting w/Yards Brewing at DiBruno’s in Philly
May 12 – Long Island Beer Fest at the Huntington Hilton
May 20 – Brandywine Fest at Iron Hill – Media, PA

Hope to see you here or there,
Tom and Peggy
