… O is for the open keg that sells.

V is very, very EXtra bitter sherry.

E is every vibe from every beer that you imbibe.

‘Cause LOVE is all that beer can give to you!

LOVE ain’t more than just a glass for two.

TWO with beer can think it:

Take my pint but please don’t drink it!

BEER was made for me and you!

A-beer was made for meEEE and youUUU!

–The Official Drinking Song this Valentine’s Day

It’s been a while since we uploaded your brain with fantabulous beer-events around the city.

So let’s make up for it:

This Friday the 13th, don’t stay home and risk breaking mirrors around the house!  Get yourself to McGillin’s Old Ale House for PBR specials and Beatles karaoke.

Tired of witnessing the effects of the bad economy on your friends and neighbors?  Then do something about it.  This February the 21st, head up to the Charity Beer Event at Beltzner Hall on the Kutztown Fairgrounds and drink yourself over to a good cause.

Show us you care about our efforts to tell you about the best bars in the area, and claw your way down to the Devil’s Den.  While there, enjoy the hottest events, and the always-generous offers of Old Scratch himself.  It’ll be one hell of a time!  We guarantee it.

As you’ve probably guessed by now, Philly Beer Week (March 6-15) is to us what the Corporate Bail-Out was to CEOs: one big party!  So be sure to sap the city to its fullest.

Also, all beer/breweriana collectors, don’t miss the Breweriana and Vintage Beer Swap-Meet at Memphis Taproom on March 14th.

Of course, the most important beer-event of all takes place this February the 14th, hosted by your very own Rachel Riot and Kunoichi Erica: the “I’m in Love with Beer” Pub Crawl!  We’ll be posting times, bars, and specials shortly!

Don’t Panic!

Rachel Riot and Kunoichi Erica have indeed survived through the New Year.  We are currently on hiatus, working on tabulating the results from a recent beer-tasting hosted by Miss Riot, as well as planning a splendiferous event to make this V-Day one to remember.   Be sure to check back soon for more information on the “I’m in Love with Beer” Pub Crawl this February the 14th.

In the meantime, satisfy your gullets with some hearty Italian recipes from the pot of blogs at the end of the inter-rainbow: Cucina Domenico.  Because nothing goes better with beer than great food…

…Or perhaps the occasional Italian commercial:

Remember those Zoetropes that Used to Fascinate You as a Kid?

Well, this is better:

For those of you who joined us for the pub crawl, we hope this slide show will help to fill in the hazy moments from your evening out with us.

For those of you who couldn’t join us, enjoy the pretty pictures anyway.
