Two Roads Brewing Debuts in Philly This Week

4 April 2015

tworoadsBeginning on Tuesday, April 7, Two Roads Brewing of Stratford, CT will be bringing their “road less traveled” philosophy to Philadelphia with a week’s worth of beer tastings and welcome events, commencing on Saturday, April 11. Head Brewer Phil Markowski will be making his way down to Philly to join the festivities, interact with fans, and answer any questions we may have.

Two Roads, which will be partnering with importer and distributor Muller, Inc., will be bringing some of their favorite offerings to Philly.  These include their Road 2 Ruin, a double IPA brewed with seven hop varieties; No Limits Hefeweizen, a Bavarian wheat ale; Ol’ Factory Pils, a traditional pilsner dry-hopped with German and American hops; Worker’s Comp Saison, a fruity farmhouse ale that is slightly spicy; Lil’ Heaven, a session IPA; Honeyspot Road White IPA, a wheat IPA; Unorthodox Russian Imperial Stout, which is aggressively hopped with notes of rye, chocolate, and espresso; 20 Ton, a blond barleywine; Igor’s Dream, a Russian Imperial stout made with rye and aged in oak barrels; and Henry’s Farm, a traditional dopplebock.

If you’ve had the beer before, or are looking forward to trying out yet another new brewery in PA, there are numerous opportunities for you to do so. Some include:

Late Night Munchies at Varga Bar | Tuesday, April 7, 8 – 11pm
Varga will be pairing select Two Roads styles with snack plates, and will have a special cask offering.

Nutmeg State Tap Takeover at City Tap House Logan Square | Wednesday, April 8, 4 – 7 pm
Phil Markowski will be on hand to meet with drinkers, and will be offering his book on saisons, Farmhouse Ales: Culture and Craftsmanship in the Belgian Tradition, to the first 30 guests to buy a Two Roads beer. All of the aforementioned beers will be available, as well as a special cask offering.

Leftorium of Beers Lunch at Monk’s Café | Thursday, April 9, Noon
Phil Markowski will take over the celebrated Belgian beer bar for a special brewer’s lunch,  Space is limited, so be sure to call ahead (215.545.7005) to secure your seat and give yourself a good reason to skip out of work early.

The Brunch Not Taken at Strangelove’s | Saturday, April 11, 11:30am – 2pm
Chef James Kenngott will draw inspiration from Robert Frost—who the brewery based their name on—offering myriad brunch items to pair with the Two Roads beers. 4/7 CORRECTION: The brunch at Strangelove’s will simply have Two Roads beer and the usual delicious food you’d find at Strangelove’s, there will be no Robert Frost-ing of the food.  Sorry for any confusion.

Throughout the week, Two Roads can also be found at Barcade (April 8 starting at 7pm), Two Stones Pub (April 8 starting at 4pm), Good Dog Bar (April 8, 8-midnight), POPE (April 9 starting at 6pm), Bru Craft & Wurst (April 10, 4-7pm), Union Jack’s (in Glenside, April 10, 6-8pm), and Time, for their seventh anniversary party (April 10, 8-11pm).

Be sure to check out this fine new brewery and show them a warm welcome to Philadelphia.  Hopefully, I’ll see you out at one or more of these events!
