Breweries "Visited"

Short. Sweet.

Beer #180 Fripp / Tired Hands Brewing Company, Ardmore, PA

Is this the shortest post ever?  Possibly.  Spent the day churning out work in the morning, then relaxing with my co-workers at a Phillies game - they lost, big surprise.  Ended the evening with my co-workers with a visit to Tired Hands, a new brewery in our (relatively speaking) neighborhood.  Marci is furious, as I went there without her, but hopefully we can make a stop together over the weekend.  Very cool place, very good beers.

I tried the Fripp, an English Bitter.  An amber color in the glass with a thin head, you pick up aromas of malt on the nose.  With the first sip, you find a mix of toffee, lightly toasted malt, and bitter hops.  Nice mix, although it was hard to focus on the aroma - the downstairs bar is right across from the food prep area, and everything smelled delicious.  Fripp checks in at a mellow 4.6% ABV, in case you were keeping score.

Trust me, it looks better than this in person.

If you're near the Main Line, definitely make a point to stop by.  This brewery will no doubt gain a cult following in very short order.

Thing to Think About Today:
We're keeping it brief today.  It's been a good day, but a long day, and we've come to the point in the festivities where I need to head to bed.  If we're talking sleep, then let's let The Tokens close the day with The Lion Sleeps Tonight.  A video Marci has already shared in her writing, to be sure, but it's worth another listen, and I defy you to not sing along.
