BEER WEEK IS HERE! This is the most wonderful time of the year no matter what Andy Williams says.
Screw the pressures of buying gifts, monetary stress, and family issues. THIS IS A WEEK OF DRINKING BEER. It doesn’t get much better than this. The only thing that could make this glorious week in Philly better is if the NFL Draft was happening during Beer Week.
Philly’s Beer Week is the oldest and largest in the country. The events seem endless and it can be difficult to scour through all the events to see what you should attend. That’s where our alcoholic-living-in-mom’s-basement-staff comes in. We drink and we have free time.
Without further adieu, the Jawnville Beer Week 2017 Picks to ensure that you drink great beers and have a blast, even if you can only make it out for one night due to the your inconsiderate boss, nagging spouse, or whining kids.

Half Acre & NCBC Lucky JAWN Release Party at Lucky’s Last Chance-Queen Village 8:00-10:00 p.m.
We’re big fans of Half Acre’s work, particularly Daisy Cutter, and Neshaminy Creek Brewing Company is releasing Lucky JAWN so say no more. We’re in.
I got this in my email inbox this afternoon and it’s a total violation:
Freddy? Odubel? How tough was the job to send out this crock of crap today? It couldn’t have been easy to hit the send button on this mass email, unless you haven’t seen a game since April 18th.
Let’s be real, Phillies. This is how it should’ve looked:
Cesar is the ONLY Phillie remotely worthy of getting an All-Star vote this year and possibly starting. Daniel Murphy is probably more deserving, but you can make an argument for Cesar, especially if you’re a fan of the sabermetrics WAR stat.
In reality, Cesar will be the only Phillie added to the All-Star roster after the starting lineups are determined because one Phillie has to be there.
Let’s not insult Phillies fan during this difficult season.
For some unknown reason, over a holiday weekend, Carson Wentz decided to troll Philly fans.
In case you were busy drinking, grilling, vaping, or at the beach and missed the tweet, here it is:
Philly has been doing cheesesteaks for about 80 years. It’s our signature sandwich that’s known throughout the country, maybe the world. When Monday Night Football or any national sports broadcast visits Philadelphia, they always do the obligatory shot of a cheesesteak grill.
Many of us suffer from cheesesteak saturation, but that doesn’t give a dude from North Dakota the right to stroll into town after a 7-9 season and take shots at our sandwich. Yeah, we know there are better sandwiches in town (roast pork, Italian hoagies), but an out-of-towner taking shots at our cheesesteak is unacceptable.
Carson Wentz is still an outsider. He makes his ND pride evident on your social media accounts. There’s no need to troll Philly fans by spending a year or so here and then telling us we’ve been doing cheesesteaks all wrong for the past 80 or so years by using beef and not venison.
We get it. Carson hunts. Carson hunts deer with his brother. You can’t help but know that. To be honest, the constant promotion of his brother’s mediocre Youtube channel documenting the “Wentz Bros Outdoor Life’ is annoying. It’s tacky. It makes it look like the brother is trying to glom onto Carson’s success to secure a Cabela’s endorsement. Maybe this was his way of reminding us, again, that he hunts and eats game meat.
Venison on a roll with cheese is just that. It’s not a cheesesteak.
Why troll Philadelphian’s and attack a Philly institution? Philadelphia has shown Wentz nothing but love. His jersey is everywhere. I doubt anyone here is poking fun at North Dakota, in fact I’ve seen more than a handful of Wentz ND State jerseys in town. Hopefully, this was a just a poor attempt at being funny.
Here’s to hoping that Carson is a better quarterback than he is comedian.
Philly’s infamous dive bar McGlinchey’s is Zagat rated and it is EPIC. This has to be the most amazing Zagat rating in existence. “Perhaps the diviest dive bar of them all”. Nice work McGlinchey’s!
Check it out:
I recently heard some old football head somewhere talk about Terrell Owens’ work ethic early in his career. Same said old-head mentioned that Owens had said he was blown away, as a rookie, by Jerry Rice’s work ethic and sought to emulate Rice.
That’s why I think it’s an issue that Fletcher Cox was absent from the Eagles’ voluntary OTA’s this week. It’s not simply that he is the 3rd highest paid Eagle. I don’t care about that. It’s about setting an example.
It’s no secret that the Eagles just spent their top draft pick on Derek Barnett, a defensive lineman. It’s no secret that the Eagles defense struggled last year and that Cox’s performance dropped off from 2015 by pretty much every statistical measure. It’s also no secret that the coaching staff and system has only been in place for two years and the Eagles finished last in their division at 7-9.
What kind of example does that set for Derek Barnett as he joins the football team for the first organized workouts? Barnett sees a high paid, under-performing player on a losing team blowing off OTA’s. That’s a far cry from Jerry Rice’s legendary workouts and the example that he set for a young Terrell Owens.
If the new first round draft pick was a wide receiver, I would not care. Maybe I’m naive to expect Cox to be there at the start of OTA’s welcoming the new, young defensive addition to the team, showing an example of dedication and hard work, while making Barnett feel at home with the defensive unit. That’s quite possible.
I still think, all things considered, Cox should’ve been at NovaCare for this week’s OTAs.
