Here at PhillyTapFinder headquarters, we’re always trying to come up with something different for our ticket giveaways. We think that we’ve come up with a good one. But first, a little something from the Hop Chef event page about the amazing event, which is taking place at Union Transfer on Tuesday, April 23, at 7pm:
So how do I get to this great event for free. It’s easy…let’s play guess the hops! You tell me how many hops are in the blender — closest to the actual number wins 2 free tickets! We’re not playing Price is Right rules so you can go over the actual number. Submit your guess through Twitter and include the hashtags #hopchef #hopcount. We are not accepting guesses any other way (no emails, blog comments, etc.). We will pick the winner on Thursday, April 18 at 5pm. Good luck! Here are the pictures - start counting, use those math skills, and let the guesses begin.
Didn’t win our giveaway or just don’t trust your skills? Buy your tickets right here.
Brew Lounge’s weekly Philly beer event listings is posted! Lots of great stuff going on this week.
Wouldn’t it be great if someone took the time to put together an easy-to-use guide of beers pouring at Citizens Bank Park? Given what I do at PhillyTapFinder, I considered doing this several years back. I tried a shortcut - sent a few emails, trying to reach a head concessions guy that would give me the info. Nothing ever came of it. I never even thought of the possibility of walking around the stadium and collecting the info on my own. That would be plain crazy.
Meet my friend Lee from Chocolate Covered Memories. He’s crazy. This is the second year that he put together his amazing spreadsheet. Looks like I’ll be drinking a lot of Victory Summer Love this year at the park, including today. Thanks Lee. You’re awesome.

Brew Lounge is hard at work. Taking tidbits of information from all around and putting them together into this comprehensive Philly beer event list for 4/4-4/10. If you don’t want to miss events, check this out.
One of the world’s best brewers, Struise, featured at the Iron Abbey on 4/3.
Another great week in Philly beer, highlighted by Craft Beer Express on Saturday and Brewer’s Plate on Sunday. Brew Lounge has compiled the full weekly event lineup here.
Zero bars in Northern Liberties. But, 9 in "Northern Exposure"?
That is confusing. I meant to remove NoLibs for month of March. All NoLibs bars are participating in month-long event called Northern Exposure. You can find their tap lists there.
I’m pretty sure that Brewer’s Plate is my favorite event of the year. We’ve been going since the beginning: Reading Terminal Market, the Visitor’s Center, Penn Museum, and now the Constitution Center. Although the venue has changed (some were better than others and the Constitution Center is great), the big draw is always the food and the beer. This event is very special because it focuses on the locals in both beer and food. And the Philly area has a ton to offer.
Of course, PhillyTapFinder managed to get its hands on the tap list and wanted to share it with you:
Boxcar: Mango Ginger IPA
Brooklyn: Sorachi Ace
Bullfrog: Jong Bruin (sour), Strange Orange (wheat saison)

Triumph: Bengal Gold IPA
Troegs: Perpetual, Dreamweaver, Flying Mouflan

Are you guys ready for this? I’m not sure that you are. But anyway, lookie what I got - the full lineup for IPA’s Greatest Hits at Sidecar from March 8 to March 10. Tomorrow, I will post on PhillyTapFinder when over this 3-day period that these 40 delicious IPA’s will be tapped so check there for more details. Here’s the list:
Ever get annoyed that you go from bar to bar and they all have a big overlap in draft beers? Enter Northern Exposure.
Northern Exposure is very unique beer event held in Northern Liberties in the month of March. Get your “passport” and try over 100+ beers within NINE quality taverns in the neighborhood; travel the world with a pint in your hand! For every beer you consume, you get a “local” stamp - complete the different levels of your passport and get prizes. This event is made possible by 2nd Street Festival & Philly Tap Finder (hey that’s me).
So how is PhillyTapFinder involved? We’ve gathered the tap lists at the 9 participating bars and put all of that information in one convenient spot right here (bookmark this page for quick access).
Frequently asked questions:
Where do I get a passport and how much? Passports can be picked up at any of the participating bars. They cost $2. I picked one up and they’re really cool looking.
Do I win anything if I got a bunch of stamps? Yes. I can tell you that the prizes for the first three to complete the passport are very generous. I’m waiting to find out if I can give out this info.
Grab your buddies and start pub crawling. You won’t see the same beer twice. I hope to be organizing a pub crawl for one of the weekends in March. I will let everyone know. This is a truly unique event. I’ve never seen anything else like it.
