It’s only brewed three few times a year, but for hoppy beer fanatics, Dogfish Head’s 120 Minute IPA is the ultimate extreme brew. It’s a motherlode of hops and at 18% ABV, is very high in alcohol for a beer. Beer, wine and cheese cafe Tria has scored some precious kegs of the potent stuff and will tap it today at both of its locations. There’s a limit of two five-ounce tasting portions per customer. With the Phillies game on tonight, that seems like a wise decision. Neither Tria has a TV, so if you’re going to a bar to watch the game, here are some suggestions.
• Bridgid’s in Fairmount offers $3 Yards select drafts and $2 domestic bottles during every Phillies playoff game, plus five of the drafts will be discounted.
• $3 cans of Sly Fox Pilsner or Pale Ale, $3 bottle of Ithaca Apricot Wheat and $3.50 pints of Yards at Jose Pistola’s throughout the game.
• The Swann Lounge at the Four Seasons will show all NLCS games on two televisions and serve free snacks. They also have a new bistro menu.
