Philadelphia, PA - The Lancaster Brewing Company, a local craft brewery, announced it's going to start packaging craft beer in cans.

Philadelphia, PA - The debate over how you should drink beer has existed since the birth of craft beer. Hardened beer connoisseurs claim each beer needs to be served in a different style glass (as well as temperature), but middle-aged dads think it tastes the same whether from the bottle or in a glass.
Philadelphia, PA - Whether you’re a home brewer or just a beer fan, hazy (cloudy) beers are all the rage these days. The coloring originates in the New England IPA, a type of IPA that is usually yellow or orange in coloring, hazy. Breweries have implemented this brewing process in the brewing of other types of beer, though they are most often other varieties of IPA, characterized by the intense flavor of hops. They usually are medium in color, lower in alcohol content (6-8%), and very bitter due to the hops.
