Thought gruit was a misspelling of fruit. Boy was I wrong and can't wait to taste it. Looking at the lineup I see some delicious combinations and some bordering on sacrilege. See you next Saturday, I'll be the guy with the glass in my hand and smile on my face!

Me too. I assume the reason for the name, "The Bradley Effect", is similar to what Tom Pastorius says about dark beer: it's like church -- everyone talks about dark beer, says how wonderful it is, but very few people actually drink it.

I like dark beer. I have some friends who like dark beer too. In all seriousness these beers look very nice and hope that I decide to just drive my ass down there.

Newark has made an industry of ticketing and towing cars illegally parked. There is some parking behind Iron Hill or reasonable city lots. Just a warning for those attending.

I wish they would do one of these events at the Lancaster location...can't say I've ever tried cask beer and would really love to.
