Ryeghteous Brown Ale does it again, bringing home a Round One win for the Mellody Home Brewery. Faithful followers know, this is a favorite beer of mine and one I actually haven’t brewed in over two years. I have been too focused on perfecting the Patersbier and a few others, that the Ryeghteous became the forgotten child of the family, sitting at the mall alone after it’s Dad left without him.

The Beer Barons event features a tour of West Laurel Hill Cemetery, a tasting and competition. Tickets are limited and can be purchased here for $25. The beer competition is interesting, and one that attracted me because it is focused on historical local brewers, and pre-prohibition beers. The tour features highlights of the graves of some of Philadelphia’s historic brewers. I wonder if it would be wrong to pour beer out on their… Read MoreRead More
A year ago I learned about the largest edible fruit indigenous to North America – the pawpaw. According to Wikipedia,
“The pawpaw, paw paw, paw-paw, or common pawpaw (Asimina triloba) is a species of Asimina (the pawpaw genus) in the same plant family (Annonaceae) as the custard-apple, cherimoya, sweetsop, ylang-ylang and soursop. The pawpaw is native to the eastern United States and adjacent southernmost Ontario, Canada, from New York west to eastern Nebraska, and south to northern Florida and eastern Texas. The pawpaw is a patch-forming (clonal) understory tree found in well-drained, deep, fertile bottom-land and hilly upland habitat, with… Read More
