Prism Brewing Company’s brewpub in North Wales, PA has won Best Brewpub in the Philly Hot List Awards!

Their taproom was voted best among the area’s fine brewpubs by locals on PHL 17′s Philly Hotlist website. What sets it apart from the competition is the wide array of brews available and the consistent stream of fun events. Not only do they have their year-round brews on tap at all times, but they always have something special that you can’t get anywhere else. They also have great drink specials, local wine, a unique karaoke night (where all you have to do to stop the song is buy the singer a drink), and a whole array of bar food (including a sizable hot dog list).

So head on over and raise a glass to their fine establishment. They’re open 7 days a week, and always have something going on.

offcbradfox

This Saturday (the 13th) at noon, Railroad Street Bar and Grill in Linfield is tapping a keg of Evolution’s Incubator, a limited edition dry hoppy Belgian-style beer. To make this event even more appealing, they are donating all the proceeds generated by selling the beer to the Brad Fox Children’s Fund.  Not only is this a great opportunity to try a limited edition brew, it’s also for a great cause.

Officer Brad Fox, an Iraqi war Marine Corp veteran and Plymouth Township police officer, was killed in the line of duty in 2012 when responding to a call on the eve of his birthday in September. He left behind his wife, Lynsay, and their two children. This fund was set up to help ensure for their future.
