Beer Radar: Outdoor beer drinking commences

Project P.U.B. in North Jersey is a pretty cool, new concept in beer bars. It offers a “brewpub-like experience” in which its taps pour one brewery, and one brewery only, for a single month. After that, it moves onto another brewery. It’s shaking things up a bit in April with a series of seven collaboration beers from New Jersey breweries, including River Horse and Brotherton

It’s outdoor beer-drinking season around Philly: Glenside Ale House by Round Guys Brewing opens its patio Saturday (4/6). And Conshohocken Brewing’s Bridgeport Brewpub says it will open its very excellent beer garden along the Schuylkill on April 19… Meanwhile Fairmount Park released its 2019 Parks on Tap schedule. First up is the Azalea Garden in Fairmount, April 24-28, followed by an excellent new location on May 1-5: Historic Rittenhouse Town along the Wissahickon off Lincoln Drive…

National Beer Day is Sunday. It’s the 86th anniversary of the signing of the Cullen-Harrison Act, which preceded the end of Prohibition by legalizing the sale of crappy but desperately needed session IPAs. I mean 3.2% beer…  After Midnight Brewing, which has been on the drawing board since last summer, tells Philly Mag it plans to open this summer at American Street and Susquehanna Avenue in Kensington…

Cape May Brewing and Iron Hill have collaborated on a sour NEIPA, with sales to benefit Surfrider Foundation South Jersey, a non-profit, activist organization dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world’s ocean, waves, and beaches. Twin Fin will be released on draft at Iron Hill/Voorhees on Thursday (April 11) and in cans at Cape May on Earth Day, April 20… Here’s a great outing for Phillies fans who live up in the Poconos: Barley Creek is running a bus to Citifield in New York for a ballgame on June 29. Tix are $140, which includes on-board refreshments, tailgate and more.  Email the brewery for more info. Oh, did I mention it’s the Mets vs. the Braves? An ideal opportunity to boo both teams…!
