Percy Street BBQ Debuts Yards Cerebus Triple Wet Hop IPA
Percy Street Barbecue Debuts Yards Brewing Company’s Cerebus Triple Wet Hop IPA
Philadelphia, PA – On Tuesday, October 18 from 7 to 11 p.m. Percy Street Barbecue will welcome Yards Brewing Company for the debut of its Cerebus Triple Wet Hop IPA. Cerebus was brewed using fresh “wet” hops (24 hours from picking to brewing) from the Pacific Northwest including Citra, Chinook and Amarillo varieties. The event will be pay-as-you-go.
“We love Yards Brewing Company! They make our Percy Street draft root beer, we’ve smoked malt for them to brew with and now, we get to debut the Cerebus IPA, should be a great night of beer and barbecue,” says Chef/Partner Erin O’Shea.
In addition to the Cerebus, Yards will also bring three pale ales, each brewed with one of the wet hop varieties, as well as Yards Cape of Good Hope, MacDouglas Smoked Ale, Barrel Aged George Washington Porter and Philly Pale Ale.
Co-owned by Steven Cook and Michael Solomonov, Percy Street Barbecue is Philadelphia’s premier restaurant for smoked meats and down-home sides, all served in an austere, Texas-inspired location on the city’s eclectic, vibrant South Street corridor. Percy Street also boasts one of the city’s largest canned beers list, with over 60 selections of craft and domestic beers. The Philadelphia Inquirer called Percy Street “an A,” praising the flavorful smoked meats and simple, straightforward presentations that the team developed with a barbecue tour of Texas prior to opening. Chef Erin O’Shea is one of the country’s best – and only – female barbecue pit mistresses, and has been featured in Bon Appetit magazine.
Percy Street Barbecue serves dinner seven days a week and is open for all-day dining on Saturday and Sunday beginning at 11:30 a.m. For more information about the Yards tasting event, please call (215) 625-8510 or visit www.percystreet.com. You can also follow them on Twitter: @PercyStreet.
