1:15PM: Broken Goblet Brewing. We’ll have a private setup in the brewhouse with 4-6 pitchers. We’ll get an informal tour as we sample. We’re also member of Broken Goblet’s ‘Irregular’s Club’, so we’ll be able to check out the super secret members-only beer hidden somewhere in the facility.
2:40PM: Third State Brewing: A late lunch of pizza, wings, and beer. The food is provided by Francesco Pizzeria-Ristorante, but the Third State guys are nice enough to let us host everything at their place (as long as we bring a few extra pizzas!). Flights are on us. A quick look at the brewhouse is available for those interested.
3:50: Neshaminy Creek Brewing. We’ll do samplers here – 4 per person. Neshaminy Creek tends to have a lot of beer on tap, so we’ll get a wide variety and let you pick and choose. Depending on the day, we can often get a backstage tour from the prince of beer, Pat.
5PM: Back at the station for departure.
