Winter Beer Night at Barcade Philly, Jan 5

Winter Beer Night at Barcade Philly, Jan 5

Though New Year’s was graced with pleasantly warm weather, it’s officially cold season now, and according to the craft-beer-happy folks at Barcade, that means it’s time to drink some good, strong stuff. On Thursday, January 5, the Fishtown vintage-video-game mecca is hosting its first annual Winter Beer Night, a tradition begun at the original Brooklyn outpost over seven years ago.

On tap will be 20 specially selected drafts, including rarities like Cigar City Marshal Zhukov’s Imperial Stout, Victory Otto Ale and the Victory’s brand-new double IPA, Ranch S, as well as seasonal favorites like Lost Abbey Gift of the Magi, Lagunitas Sucks Holiday Ale and Yards Imperial Stout, straight from the brewhouse. (Check out the full list below, with Barcade's notes for each brew.) The common thread? These are all “big” beers, most with ABV above 8%.

The pay-as-you-go event lasts all night, 4 PM–midnight (RSVP on Facebook here), and the regular happy hour special ($1 off all drafts) is in effect through 7 PM. Head over on Thursday to warm yourself up, inside and out.
