In celebration of summer and the 4th of July we are going to do a crab boil for the beer dinner coming up on the 6th of July. Included in this is of course your 3 beers and an amazing spread of boiled crabs, potatoes, corn and shrimp and biscuits that will be served for you and your family and friends to enjoy together and get messy and have a finger lickin' good time. And after all of this is done finish the meal with a traditional ice cream sundae. Nothing says summer fun as much as this good time. All of this is still only $35!
Philadelphia Pale Ale:
Dry-hopped with an abundance of distinctive Simcoe hops, this straw-colored pale ale is more drinkable than bitter, more aromatic than aggressive. Philly Pale Ale, as it’s better known, is crisp, hoppy and bursting with citrus.
Thomas Jefferson's Tavern Ale: A Strong Golden Ale
This powerful and complex golden ale pays homage to our Founding Father and fellow brewer, Thomas Jefferson. Yards Brewmaster, Tom Kehoe, worked closely with Philadelphia’s historic City Tavern to recreate this recipe, employing honey, rye and wheat, just like the beer brewed at Monticello.
Poor Richards Tavern Spruce:
Based on Benjamin Franklin’s original recipe, which called for barley, molasses and essence of spruce, our Tavern Spruce is as approachable and engaging as the man himself. We source blue spruce clippings from a local organic farm, Indian Orchards, steeping them in the kettle to create this one-of-a-kind deep amber ale.
General Washington's Tavern Porter:
Detailed in a letter from the General to his officers during the war, Washington’s recipe employed molasses to aid fermentation and give rich caramel notes to this robust, roasty ale. The recipe reflected his admiration for Philadelphia-style porters, especially those brewed by Robert Hare (whose original brewery stood just blocks from where ours is now). Our Tavern Porter, inspired by Washington’s, is dark, smooth and complex with just a hint of dried fruit in the finish.
