Philadelphia Has a Flavor, and It's the New Summer Love Ale
William Penn sheepishly throws a toast
There's so much Pennsylvania news today, and all of it good! First, PA became the first state to tap into the travel benefits of Foursquare, and now the city of Philadelphia is tapping into its very own special brew. The beer from Victory Brewing Company will debut on June 4 at the start of Philly's Beer Week, and it's appropriately named "Summer Love Ale."
The release will at first be limited, but you can try hunting for it in the Northern Liberties neighborhood at The Standard Tap, and at Beer Week's Golden Monkey Dance Party on June 10.
So what does it taste like, you ask?
Well, here's the long of it:
Produced locally in Chester County with Brandywine River water, Summer Love is a refreshing, golden beer brewed in our lovely countryside with pale malts and German hops that says, "Hey summer, nice to see you again." It's finished with grown-in-the-USA Citra hops for a bright, lemony hit and refreshing flavor.
We actually prefer the way Bill Covaleski, Brewmaster at Victory, describes it: "Kinda like Philly. Mostly familiar but always surprising!" And, if the Philly folk love it enough and drink their local taps dry, then it's safe to say that a fall version could be in the works.
