Perched right outside the busy city streets of Philadelphia is Ardmore's Tired Hands Brewing Company. Known for their inventive beer styles, quirky artwork and farm-to-table menu, their reputation has blown up throughout the Southeastern PA area in just a shade over two years in business. Next up is their latest limited bottle release of HandFarm, going down on Sunday, June 22 when the brewpub opens at 12pm.
HandFarm elevates the brewery's flagship 4-grain saison (SaisonHands, formerly known as FarmHands) through aging in Chardonnay barrels for a number of months, allowing the beer to develop and take on a world of new characteristics. This weekend marks the 4th batch of this barrel-aged saison, which locals have grown increasingly fond of over the past year or so - which will be reflected in the line of supporters stretching down Ardmore Ave on Sunday morning.
500mL bottles of HandFarm will sell for $12 each, limited to 3 per person. A total of 600 bottles will be for sale at the brewpub (the largest announced total yet), and unfortunately the beer will not be on tap throughout the day. Please note that all bottle sales are strictly CASH ONLY (the brewpub takes cards otherwise). A variety of other beers will be on tap and available for 1L or 2L growler fills, along with some branded glassware, so be sure to check out the taplist when you stop by.
Tired Hands continues to pick up steam with each and every month, so make plans to show up before noon if you're keen on snagging a couple bottles of their latest barrel-aged creation. See ya in line!
Tired Hands Brewing Company is located at 16 Ardmore Ave in Ardmore, PA.
