Keep Your Beer Classy with Brews & Bowties
On Thursday, April 5, Rolling Barrel Events in conjunction with Mole Street Productions and Henry A. Davidsen Master Tailors & Image Consultants will bring Philadelphia the perfect event for all those trying to avoid the big crowds, uncouth guests and pretzel necklaces generally associated with big beer festivals. The second annual Brews & Bowties, held at the Ethical Society of Philadelphia, will benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and will allow attendees not only to drink great craft beer, but also learn, if necessary, the art of tying a bowtie.
The event will feature beers from all the local heavy-hitters, including Victory, Yards, Weyerbacher, Dock Street and Triumph—all served in a complimentary keepsake glass. There will also be hors d’oeuvres from the likes of Del Frisco’s and The Farmers’ Cabinet. Live music will punctuate your bowtie lessons, but beware—the dress code will be strictly enforced as cocktail attire (no jeans) and bowties are strongly encouraged. Not that a classy socialite such as yourself will need to worry about such a thing.
Tickets are $60—as well as Designated Driver tickets for $30—and all proceeds benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma society. Acting fast will be a necessity, however, as there will only be 300 tickets sold and the event is sure to sell out. If you do miss your opportunity, never fear—Rolling Barrell will be hosting the same event the following week on April 12 in Wilmington, DE at the Delaware Center for Contemporary Arts.
You can order tickets to the Philadelphia event here, or the Wilmington version here. Brews & Bowties is the perfect opportunity to treat your significant other to a nice night on the town, dressed up and eating and drinking high-end fare. It is the perfect opportunity, as the website says, to “learn a skill every gentleman should know at an event no gentleman should miss.”
If you’re not yet sure about attending, check out Rolling Barrel’s Brews & Bowties promo nights coming up: The first is Sunday, March 25 at The Farmers’ Cabinet from 7-9p, where they will be serving brunch until 9 and have happy hour drink prices on house beers if you purchase a ticket for the event on-site. Another will be held Thursday, March 29 at Triumph Brewing Company, who will have a live jazz band and will be giving out drink tokens to anyone who buys their ticket on-site.
