SSC, EBB, GLI and NOVA. What the hell does all those letters mean? It means a great Saturday for your truly and all his rowdy friends. After a mighty fine breakfast at the old Sunflower, we loaded up the Foley truck and moved to Germantown (or Chestnut) Hills that is, no swimming pools, just brewing stars. The Suburban Hillbillies. (banjo picking music in the background) Yes, for our first stop on this tour, it was, for the most of us, a first time visit to EBB. It did not disappoint. The food and service was top notch, especially the seed pizza, and the three beers I had that day, Organic Pils, Saison and the Mild, well they were in the top five beers I've tried this year. Get them while they last.
But another place was a calling, so we loaded up the truck and went a couple of miles down the road to the General Lafayette Inn. It was there I had had my next best beer of the year, The Economizer. This beer IMHO should only be made for the handpump, but alas, it ran out and I had to settle for one on tap. Still good, but not near as tasty. By now we were honored by the presence of the wonderful Father Mariano and his lovely friend "Syracuse". So everybody shot the poop, mostly about meeting someones date later that night and we had another beer and then we left and went to Mr. Rubeo's to finish watching Nova pull one out. All in all a right smart day.
Now for your viewing pleasure, a few pictures from EBB.
Mmm, food good, beer good. March birthday celebration for Mr. Tom and Ms. Kelly, priceless.
A very somber Mr. Baker wondering why Jack didn't show up.
The mighty fine beer board at EBB.
I did not hear many complaints from anybody about those choices.
