Saturday, February 23, 2013 from 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM (EST)
Join Victory at the German Society of PA on Saturday, Feb 23 for the 2nd Annual Philly Bierfest!
Bierfest is a family-friendly and community-supporting event. Supervised childcare and ‘beer-less’ designated driver tickets are available. In addition to gastronomic delights and fun and games, Bierfest attendees will enjoy access to unique educational opportunities, like the Brewer’s Discussion Panel on ‘Lager-Love and the Resurgence of Session Styles’ at 4pm in the historic Horner Memorial Library.
The panelists will include some of the state’s leading German-style brewers and session-beer advocates:
Victory Brewmaster Bill Covaleski
Appalachian Brewmaster Artie Tafoya
‘Pennsylvania Breweries’ Author Lew Bryson
Artisanal German Beer Importer Lars Dahlhaus
Bierfest 2013 will also feature a guided tasting seminar for VIP ticketholders, led by sommelier, author and Philadelphia Daily News columnist Marnie Old before the main event kicks off. One of the country’s most sought-after speakers on wine and beer, Marnie’s lively presentation style will bring entertainment-value to beer education as she explores the diversity of German beer styles, reaching well beyond pale lagers to include sour wheat beers, cold-fermented ales, malty bock beers and inky schwarzbiers.
