Tired Hands Creates Show of Hands for Ardmore Music Hall 5th Anniversary
(Ardmore, PA) – The time is near, the mission’s clear. Two Mainline powerhouses have come together to bring a delicious and proud product to the mouths of many in the greater Philadelphia region, or at least to those lucky and dedicated enough to travel to the Ardmore Music Hall to taste it.
Show of Hands, a Citra pale ale brew inspired by begonias and brewed with sunflowers, will be the newest release from the Fermentaria at Tired Hands Brewing Company, the ultra sought after beer company located just a stones throw across Lancaster Avenue from Ardmore Music Hall, the intimate music venue that has brought music legends such as George Clinton & P-Funk, The Hooters, Toots & the Maytals, Steve Earle, Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Robby Krieger (of The Doors), Macy Gray and many more. Tired Hands reached superstar status in the beer world by offering top of the line hoppy selections as well as strange experimentals since their doors opened, while keeping a “quality over quantity” mantra at the forefront of their operations. They’re local, they’re limited and they’re the latest on the craft trend. Let’s keep up.
The new brew from Tired Hands will make its debut and end of session during the 5 Year Anniversary celebration at the Ardmore Music Hall. As AMH enters its fifth year, the venue will celebrate with a 9 day run of shows with both debut performances from highly sought after local legends and several returning AMH favorites. The list of shows curated by the independent venue include incredible names such as jazz fusion guitar master Mike Stern on 9/13, jazz bass virtuoso Stanley Clarke on 9/16, the long awaited debut of New Jersey’s newgrass jam band Railroad Earth on 9/20, dance rock pianist Marco Benevento on 9/21, and a sold out show with punk rock icons The Dead Milkmen on 9/22 among others. The celebration will end on 9/23 as the venue celebrates its own milestone success and 23 years of Grateful Dead tribute Splintered Sunlight playing the room at 23 East Lancaster avenue.
Look for the initial tapping of Show of Hands at AMH exclusively on Wednesday, September 12th, when reggae rockers The Movement and Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad take the stage at 7:30pm. The first 55 people who enter the venue will receive a free pint of Show of Hands and commemorative glass. Ardmore Music Hall plans to pour the selection throughout their entire Five Year Anniversary show run, beginning the date of the tapping through September 23rd’s Splintered Sunlight finale show.
