60 Minute IPA at Bridgewater’s Pub

I didn’t expect to post a followup to the Philly Craft Beer Festival quite this soon, but I happened to grab dinner at Bridgewater’s Pub in 30th Street Station tonight on the way to the OWASP meeting and had an interesting beer. The lobster roll I was looking forward to is off the menu for the moment (the chef told me he would have to charge $25 for it at current prices—the New York rate—and to look for it to return in May), so I tried the hamburger, which was excellent.

In researching the Craft Beer Festival post, I stumbled across a list of 25 best beers in America which included Dogfish Head’s 60 Minute IPA (“the best we’ve found”). As luck would have it, Bridgewater’s Pub serves this beer in bottles. It had the characteristic grapefruit-juice flavor of an IPA, but was less bitter and hence more drinkable than the ones I remember from Saturday. Bridgewater’s Pub has a nice selection of beer, not to mention great food if you happen to be stuck waiting for a train. On tap:

  • O’Hara’s Irish stout
  • McChouffe
  • Legacy’s Hedonism Red Ale
  • Spaten Lager
  • Stoudt's Triple Ale
  • Smithwick’s Irish Ale

In bottles:

  • Harp Lager
  • Youngs Double Chocolate Stout
  • Chimay Cinq Cents White Cap
  • Dogfish 60 Minute IPA
  • Railbender Ale
  • Ayinger Dunkel
  • Corsendock Dark (Brown)
  • Duvel (Belgian Ale)
  • Lindeman's Kriek and Pomme
  • Erdinger Bock
  • Éphémère Apple
