Philadelphia, Beer City!

I bought a pint glass with a saying supposedly by Benjamin Franklin at the Independence Visitor Center in Philadelphia. It was also for sale at City Hall.   Wise man, that Ben!

 

The coaster you see under the glass I bought across the street, at the US Mint. It is made of porous stone, which does not stick to a wet glass. Unfortunately, the blue paint they used to put the "Treasury - US Mint" logo on it is not porous, so the glass does stick to it...:-(

 

I would have loved to pour one of Yards Brewery’s ales in it, but I cannot get that here. The White Hawk IPA from Mendecino Brewing Company in California that I did pour in was very tasty, though, as always.   Support Your Local IPA!...;-)
