Lambic Summit Preview

Tomorrow night the UPenn Museum in Philadelphia is hosting what sounds to be the best Lambic tasting on record.  While rumors of the beers that will be served are impressive, the guest list Armand Debelder (Drie Fonteinen), Frank Boon (Boon), and Jean Van Roy (Cantillon) is even more exciting.  I doubt that I'll be able to glean too many techniques from the discussion, but it should be entertaining (and delicious) regardless.

Until a few hours ago I wasn't planning on making the two and half hour (without traffic) drive from DC up to Philadelphia on a Wednesday night after work, but I have some very persuasive friends.  After the event we're planning to make a quick stop at Monk's Cafe for Tomme Arthur night (aka a sample of Duck Duck Gooze).  I'm not looking forward to the drive back down to DC early Thursday morning.

Anybody else going?

I need to be at work by 9:30, so we're debating getting a hotel and waking up at 5 am to head back, or just coming back down late Wednesday night.

I'll be there, in fact I'll probably be there and then Monk's. In fact, if you managed to make it to the Evening Of Saisons first, we could be twins.

Cheers

Oh yeah, keep in mind the Flyers and Phillies are in town tonight, so you may want to get a little more of a head start if possible.

If anyone wants talk I'll have a brown t-shirt on. I doubt I'll be early though between commuters/rain/spots related traffic and the fact that I'm not leaving until 3:30.
