Beer week is approaching soon! We're excited to share our line up of events with you!
Friday June 2nd - 5pm - 7pm
Firkin Face Off w/Yards: Chef vs. GM
Yard's beer week kickoff! Chef Waldemar Stryjewski and GM Amy Hartranft take part in a flavor face off! Each, joining several of the fine brewers at Yard's, will choose natural ingredients to add an additional taste profile to one of Yard's core beers. At 5pm, we will tap each firkin and YOU get to decide who wins. Whichever beer goes first decides the victor. Free T-shirt and Yard's Hoppy Lil Hudson pint glass to the drinker who kicks the first firkin!
Saturday, June 3rd - 5pm - 7pm
Kickin' it with Our Neighbors
We'll be featuring Haze Craze - a collaboration beer between Love City brewing and 2SP. We'll have a firkin on hand to kick, as well as the beer on tap, and representatives from both breweries hanging out. We'll have some fun offerings from 2SP as well. Love City will be a new brew pub just up the street from us on Spring Garden. Kevin Walter worked with Michael Contreras at Iron hill and is now starting his own business.
Sunday - June 4th 3pm - 8pm
Pig Out! Pig Roast w/Sterling Pig
Come join our swine-tastic open air celebration of all things Piggy! Chef Val Stryjewski will be brining a whole locally pastured pig using spent mash from one of Sterling Pig's beers. Meanwhile, the SP's beer itself will be flowing and we'll be here coercing you into silly fun things like "Pin The Tail On The Piggy" and "Hey, Swing This Very Safe Plastic Bat At That Pig-ñata!" You'll see.
Monday June 5th - All Day
Pans 'n Cans! Pies 'n Pints! Featuring Vault, Neshaminy Creek & 2SP
Pro Tap and Bufad collaborate to bring you a day of $5 cast iron personal pan pizzas and discounted canned beer (and a few fun drafts, as well) from our friends at Vault Brewing, 2SP, and Neshaminy Creek!
Tuesday June 6 - 5pm -?
Single Varietal Cider Tap Takeover Featuring Wyndrige, Levante & Frecon
Every Tuesday at Pro Tap is Fried Chicken & Cider night. But during beer week, we're getting crazy. Wyndridge Farms will be in house and providing several one-off single varietal ciders for our fried chicken pairing pleasure! There will be some single varietal cider from Frecon Farms and Levante Brewing, as well! The Tuesday chicken will be as we always do! If you don't already know what that means, Chef Val does a 24hr house pickle brine on Lancaster free range chickens, a 24hr rest/dry, and then a 24hr buttermilk bath. Three day prep. Oh wait, there's more. We'll be serving it with all the comfort food sides you could ask for, with the option of a half or full portion. And as usual, we strongly recommend you drink cider with your fried chicken! And lots of it. An apple a day, you say? We think that's not enough.
Thursday June 8 - 7pm - 10pm
Urban Family Brewing
Come drink Urban Family Brewing's amazing wild beers and enjoy some of Chef Val's wild-urban foraged small plates. It's cute, we know.
Thursday, June 8th - 10pm - 1am
Interboro Brewing Late Night DJ
Jesse Ferguson of Interboro Brewing in Brooklyn is joining us for a late night Beer Week Double Header. He (formerly of Other Half and Carton brewing) and Jason Miller (formerly of Bella Vista, now 31st & Wharton) will be DJing late night 10pm-1am and we'll have a few Interboro brews on tap and possibly a cocktail with one of their spirits.
Saturday June 10th 11am - 4pm
Cider Brunch w/Wyndridge!
Join us for a special cider brunch and meet the brewers/cider-ers (it's not a word, we know.) from Wyndridge!
Cocktail Clean Up & BYOV
Sunday June 11th 6pm
Tired of beer yet?! We didn't think so. Come hang out while our GM Amy Hartranft whips us up some beer cocktails! Help her kick some of those leftover kegs! We'll have a cocktail and snack menu making smart use of our beer week leftovers, and as we kick one keg, a new "up next" cocktail becomes available with the next keg, and so on and so forth! Beer week swag prizes for the drinker who kicks a keg! It's also BYOV (Bring Your Own Vinyl) night, and like any other Sunday you'll get 20% off your bill if you bring in your records for our star-back Jake to play and get groovy to!
