Christmas in July at Grey Lodge Pub

Tomorrow night (7/8). The beer lineup looks great:

Troegs Mad Elf, Victory Resolution Porter, Rogue Santa's Private Reserve, and Sly Fox Christmas Ale (and maybe a barrel of a Manayunk Christmas beer). We will also have bottles of Mars Christmas Bock, Camerons Christmas Ale, Stoudts Winter Ale.

I used to have a thing about drinking big beers in the summer. I would always opt for a wit, pilsner, etc. Well, after having four holiday beers at the Grey Lodge Pub on Friday night, my mind is changed.

First, upstairs at the GLP is a great thing--a SMOKE FREE :smile: bar with ten taps, nine craft brews and one (Coors Light, I think) megabrew. I tried all of the available holiday beers on tap--Troegs Mad Elf, Sly Fox Christmas Ale (a gingerbread man in a glass), Victory Resolution Porter (maybe the best porter I've ever had) and Rogue Santa's Private Reserve. My favorite was the Victory, followed closely by the Sly Fox and Troegs. I've never been a big Rogue fan. The SPR was good, but nothing special.

The food is very good. The menu is small, but what we ate was very tasty, and what I saw others eating made me want to come back the next night to try. Three of us shared Thai curry mussels, Buffalo wings, duck spring rolls and fish/chips.

      Picked this up this morning, not because I wanted it, just to add to my collection of silliness.
       

       
       
       
      Love the brewery's honesty in their choice of name.
       
      My only question is "Why? I mean "Why?'" (to be uttered in a tone of despair).
       
      It tastes like some one had a glass of grapefruit juice with breakfast and then forgot to wash the glass before pouring a beer hours later.

      500 years ago, Martin Luther started off the Reformation. In a way, this not only changed religious affairs in Europe, but also changed our beer.
