I just learned (from a friend at a PR agency, to be scrupulously fair) that Yards Philadelphia Pale Ale is going to be pouring at the Democratic National Convention tonight. Philly is one of six cities (or maybe 8: I found that number in a Boston bit) participating in "A Taste Of America's Cities," sponsored by Democratic mayors. The man who tapped the "kind-of" first keg at Philly Beer Week's kick-off event gave the nod to sending soft pretzels, cheesesteaks, and Yards Philly Pale as our taste. Leaving out the whole shouting match over which beer he picked (any Philly craft beer is good for all Philly craft beer), I'm just frickin' tickled. This is beer, from America's Best Beer-Drinking City.
Can we make Michael Nutter mayor for life? Can suburbanites vote for him?
